2006 Honda Metro 50cc Scooter Review

by Sally
(Lawton, OK)

I love this Honda Metro scooter! It gets over 100 mpg and is perfect for my 8-mile commute across town to go to work. It just barely makes it to 40 mph (I'm 140 pounds) but it is well-suited for my needs.

I like that it is so light and easy to handle. It came with a very small, not very useful, rack but we installed a bigger one and then added a bicycle basket to it. The space under the seat is not as large as the Yamaha Vino 125cc (our other scooter) but is still quite useful.

Also, it gives a smoother ride than our Vino. Lastly, the gas has a locking cap and is located on the floorboard which makes it very easy to access.

Did I mention that I love this scooter?

At the beginning I had problems with the battery charger, but later on I had it changed and now it operates on the high level!

I have a 2009 Metro that had 300 miles on it when bought. Power wise, its a bit more than I would expect from a 50cc. No reg in our state so its a free ride. At 185, I can reach 40mph. Plenty fast for the size. Fully featured, excellent mileage. Forget the Chinese cheapos. Spend your cash wisely.

Battery Tender Junior in package

A battery tender like the Battery Tender Jr. can make all the difference in whether your scooter will start right up each spring, after being stored for months.

Just about every scooter owner needs to have a battery tender, sometimes called a trickle charger. Unless you are lucky enough to live in a climate where you can ride all year long, chances are your scooter will be put on ice, figuratively-speaking, for at least a couple months every winter.

One of the key steps in winterizing a scooter is to protect your battery from draining during its "rest" period. This can – and will – happen if you leave your battery sitting untended in your cold scooter over the winter, even if it's in a garage or shed.

Read our review or go right to Amazon.com to buy this highly recommended Battery Tender Jr NOW...

Even though most of their posts did not go public, they still cluttered up my website host's server space, jeopardizing my account. I appreciate everyone's contributions over the past few years and I apologize for having to do this.

Wondering why your scooter question never got posted?

Chances are, there is a good reason. Did you...

If you "checked yes" on any of the points above, then I've deleted your post. Sorry, but I have standards. Feel free to re-submit, following the instructions I have everywhere on the site.
