In addition to the new CB500F, Honda also unveiled at EICMA today the updated Metropolitan scooter. For 2016, the Metropolitan receives all-new rounded bodywork and a new Metropolitan emblem. The Honda Metropolitan features a V-matic automatic transmission and a fuel-efficient liquid-cooled 49cc four-stroke engine. Practical details include a convenient hook for holding shopping bags, and lockable underseat storage that’s large enough to hold a helmet.
