2019 Honda Metropolitan Buyer’s Guide | Specs & Price

2019 Honda Metropolitan

It’s easy to focus on the $2499 price tag of the 2019 Honda Metropolitan, as well as its 117 mpg fuel consumption rate, and there’s nothing wrong with that. That’s the initial appeal of the Metropolitan – economy. Yet, the Metropolitan is also a fun and stylish scooter for the most densely populated urban areas.

Although the 49cc motor is liquid-cooled and fuel injection, and it only has to power a 179-pound vehicle, it is still challenged when it comes to acceleration. If you’re at the front when the light turns green, you will want to twist the throttle as hard as you can to get out of the way of the crowd behind you.

The undersquare design of the SOHC motor does help it off the line, though a push with your feet doesn’t hurt.

Stay away from speed limits over 40 mph, as you won’t be able to keep up with traffic. Plus, the 10-inch wheels, drum brakes, and non-adjustable short-travel suspension all remind you to tone it down.

In hip downtown areas and places such as universities, the 2019 Honda Metropolitan is perfect for personal mobility. It is easy to use – the transmission is fully automatic – and is capable of carrying groceries or books, as needed.
