This is the only one 50cc cute scooter – less than 100cc that we rented. However, as soon as we bought it, we realized that even our customers showed interest in it, nobody really wanted to rent or rode it to work. Simply, the scooter was too small and weak. Almost like a bicycle and now people have a better choice than this one: electric scooters.
The CHF50 is a scooter from Honda. Known as Metropolitan in the United States, Jazz in Canada, Scoopy in Australia and Crea Scoopy in Japan. It can reach a maximum speed of just less than 40 mph (65 km/h) on flat ground and a maximum speed of 43 mph downhill. The Metropolitan has a typical gas mileage of 80-110 mpg (US) (2.1-2.9 L/100 km).
While the CHF50 is one of several 49 cc scooters from Honda since the early 1960s, it is notable for its “classic” Vesta-inspired styling and modern mechanical parts. In the United States, it debuted as the Metropolitan in the model year 2002.
The CHF50 has a large lockable center compartment, located below the seat. In fact, this compartment can hold a helmet with room to spare. In addition, it also features locking handle bars which can lock the wheel at a 45-degree angle to make it harder to push.
