Honda enters the 2013 model-year season with two fun scooters that contain significant upgrades: the thoroughly revised Metropolitan and a new PCX scooter with a larger-displacement engine that makes it capable for freeway use. Both models feature an easy-to-operate automatic transmission along with fuel-efficient engines—just the thing for countering rising fuel prices.
Available this summer, the 2013 Honda PCX150 features a 150cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder four-stroke engine that makes it freeway capable. The stylish and sporty scooter also serves as an enjoyable ride for errands, commuting or weekend fun, thanks to its nimble and friendly handling characteristics. With comfortable seating to accommodate the rider plus a passenger, and a large, handy, under-seat storage compartment that can fit a full-face helmet and more, the new 2013 PCX150 offers expanded capabilities while remaining remarkably economical.
Available in June, the 2013 Honda Metropolitan brings all-new styling and a new 50cc fuel-injected four-stroke engine. Styling highlights include a new headlight and meter setup, different handlebar and a stylish new taillight assembly. There’s a locking, 22-liter under-seat storage area large enough to stow a helmet, and also a new inner storage bin that can hold a 1-liter bottle, plus a larger convenience hook to secure a bag. With a MSRP of $1,999, the Metropolitan is within reach for just about anyone in search of affordable, cost-conscious transportation.
