Honda is bringing back its 50cc Metropolitan scooter for 2013 after a four-year absence from the U.S. market. The 2013 Honda Metropolitan NCH50 scooter brings the genre into the modern day with a new fuel-injected four-stroke motor that gets a claimed 117 mpg, while meeting EPA and CARB emissions standards.
The 2013 Honda Metropolitan comes with a new headlight treatment, new handlebar, new instruments and new turn signals lend an even fresher look to a stylish scooter. Despite its small stature, comfort is fairly decent as well. The large seat has ample padding and leaves enough room for riders to scoot back and stretch out a bit. The Metropolitan stakes its claim in the scooter world for being easy, gentle and inviting. Check out Spec:
