Honda Announces Two New Scooters for 2013

Reading time: 1 minutes.

Honda has begun the 2013 model year with the introduction of two new scooters.

Well, make that one new one and one with a facelift.

Honda PCX150 Available this summer, comes the new Honda PCX150.

It has a 150cc liquid cooled engine, with generous under-seat storage (enough for a full-face helmet).

The price is yet to be determined.

Honda Metropolitan Also coming this year, is an updated classic – the Honda Metropolitan.

The 50cc Metropolitan will be available in June, and features a redesigned headlight and clock setup, new handlebars, and a new tail-light assembly.

With 22 litres of under-seat storage, a separate storage area big enough for a 1 litre bottle, and a larger bag hook, this could be the perfect thing for those round-town trips.

The MSRP is $1,999.
