The 2020 Honda Metropolitan is a small and compact European-style scooter that features an elegant design, practical performance, and everyday usability, that’s all wrapped up in a smart package that many consider to be the perfect example of affordable around-town transportation. It’s timeless in design, but incredibly contemporary in terms of features.
Underneath the elegant exterior, the Honda Metropolitan features a capable 49cc single-cylinder four-stroke engine that produces a modest 4.4 horsepower, which can propel riders to a respectable top speed of 35-40 mph. The performance specs are perfect for zipping through city streets, but the Metropolitan’s best feature is the fuel economy.
With an estimated fuel economy of 117 mpg, the Metropolitan is a very economical way to cruise around town. What’s more, the little engine is more than just economical: it also produces significantly lower emissions than similarly designed two-stroke 49cc models.
It’s smart, fun, clean, and economical, but it’s also easy to ride thanks to Honda’s V-Matic automatic transmission, and clever Combined Braking System for intelligent stopping. Throw in a practical electric starter and useful under-seat storage, and you’ve got the perfect recipe for well-designed urban transport.
For 2020, the Honda Metropolitan is available in Coastal Blue or Pearl Soft Beige color options.
