2022 Honda Metropolitan: The Japanese Vespa

With the Ruckus filling the void in Honda’s 2022 lineup as a utilitarian take on the modern low-displacement moped, the Metropolitan approaches the equation with a more subtle and elegant approach. Honda markets the Metropolitan as “A City Dweller’s Best Friend” – and it’s completely understandable given the name, looks, and characteristics that were carefully balanced when producing this Japanese-manufactured scooter.

Honda has paired this European-inspired scooter with the same 49cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine borrowed from the Ruckus; meaning it essentially packages the same bike with a different aesthetic. Unlike the Ruckus, however, the Metropolitan contains a useful 22-liter sealed storage area located under the seat to make your life easier when running errands.

A CBS braking system allows for the scooter to automatically depress the front brake when applying the rear, and a clean CVT transmission makes shiftless riding a breeze.

The 2022 Honda Metropolitan starts at $2,499 USD / NA CAD
