2014 Honda Metropolitan

Posted on by  

The 2014 Honda Metropolitan was built with efficiency in mind and thanks to its compact dimensions it is also able to deal great with congested traffic situations, so it’s a great partner for riding through the city.

At the heart of the 2014 Honda Metropolitan lies a 49 cc, single-cylinder, four-stroke engine with PGM-FI fuel injection. The engine is mated to an automatic V-belt transmission and delivers a fuel consumption of up to 100 MPG. It is also worthy of being mentioned that the 49cc unit is fed by a 1.2 gallons fuel tank.

Jump on board and you’ll be welcomed by a comfy saddle, an ergonomically designed handlebar with a modern instrument panel and 22 liters of lockable storage capacity (beneath the seat).

The ride quality is kept in leash by a front twin-downtube fork (2.1 inches of wheel travel) and a rear single shock absorber (2.3 inches of wheel travel).
