The 2023 Honda Metropolitan: Maximum Smiles Per Mile

The Honda Metropolitan is a scooter that is known for its style, fuel efficiency, and easy maneuverability. A scooter designed with a classic look that harkens back to the 1960s, and is available in 2 new stylish colors for the 2023 Honda Lineup. Its compact size and light weight make it ideal for city driving, as it can easily navigate through traffic and fit into tight parking spaces.

Under the hood, the Honda Metropolitan is powered by a fuel-injected, air-cooled, four-stroke engine that delivers smooth, reliable performance while also being eco-friendly. Its automatic transmission and electric start make it easy to operate, even for those who are new to riding scooters. The Metropolitan’s front and rear drum brakes provide excellent stopping power, while the telescoping front fork and single rear shock ensure a comfortable ride.

In terms of features, the Honda Metropolitan comes with a spacious storage compartment under the seat, a handy hook on the front for carrying small items, and a fuel gauge so you can easily monitor your fuel level. The scooter also features an LED headlight and taillight, which provide excellent visibility at night or in low-light conditions. Overall, the Honda Metropolitan is a great choice for those who want a stylish and practical scooter for getting around town.

I am certain it is only because Honda loves to be different, you will notice that in Canada the Metropolitan is not called the Metropolitan. In Canada you ride, the “Giorno!” A Japanese manufacturer using Italian naming, I can’t even pretend to understand the marketing team’s thoughts here.

The 2023 Honda Metropolitan starts at $ 2,599 USD / $ 3,839 CAD.

The Metropolitan’s multi-speed automatic transmission means no shifting ever—not even into park or neutral. Just turn the key, press the starter button, and go!


The Metropolitan features a liquid-cooled 49cc four-stroke engine with fuel injection. It’s quiet, economical, and super reliable—everything you’d expect from a Honda.

A super easy way to hang a tote, grocery bag, or purse strap, the hook is big and easy to use.


Activate the rear brake, and our Combined Braking System automatically adds front braking to help you stop.
