2019 Honda Metropolitan:

Over the years, the Honda Metropolitan has achieved the status of classic scooter—and rightfully so, as fun styling along with a 50cc fuel-injected four-stroke engine have kept this little icon on the favorites list. There’s a locking, 22 liter under-seat storage area large enough to stow a helmet and also an inner storage bin that can hold a 1-liter bottle, plus a larger convenience hook to secure a bag. With easy-to-operate features, affordable price and operating costs, plus loads of Honda quality and reliability, the Metropolitan turns short hops into big fun.

One look at the Metropolitan and you just can’t help but think “fun.” Fun to ride, fun to look at (and be seen on!), and, thanks to its gas-sipping thriftiness and incredible pricing, even more fun to own.

The Metropolitan makes life more fun. Now you can get around town without any hassles. Traffic? Please. Can’t find parking? Yes, you can. High gas prices? Not an issue. All you have to do is put on your helmet and enjoy the ride.

Sure, it looks cute in new Coastal Blue or Pearl Soft Beige, but underneath that curvy bodywork, it’s pure Honda. It has a fuel efficient, liquid-cooled four-stroke engine, a no-shift automatic transmission. All you have to do is turn the key, press the electric starter, and go. It even has lockable underseat storage, perfect for grocery runs. The Metropolitan may be endlessly practical, but when you ride it you’ll see it’s also endlessly fun.

Make a Style Statement.

The Metropolitan just looks like it’s going to be fun, and it sure is. There’s something about its classic, curving scooter shape that’s both practical and inviting. Check out the handlebar-mounted headlight and instruments, and for 2019 two great new paint colors.

Fuel Injected, Fuel Economy!

Under that classic scooter bodywork, the Metropolitan uses a 49cc liquid-cooled four-stroke engine with fuel injection. Smooth, powerful, super reliable and environmentally conscious, it also gets over 100 miles per gallon!**

**Honda’s fuel economy estimates are based on EPA exhaust emission measurement test procedures and are intended for comparison purposes only. Your actual mileage will vary depending on how you ride, how you maintain your vehicle, weather, road conditions, tire pressure, installation of accessories, cargo, rider and passenger weight, and other factors.

It’s All About Solutions.

The Metropolitan is one of the best urban errand-runners ever. There’s a convenience hook that holds totes and grocery bags, an inner rack that catches your water bottle or other small items, and a full 22 liters of secure under-seat storage that holds a helmet and more.
