2014 LITTLE HONDA'S: RUCKUS + METROPOLITAN
November 24, 2013 Filed under: Honda | 2014 Models
METROPOLITAN / GIORNO RETURN WITH 3 BOLD NEW COLORS
In the traditional fall release season, Honda has announced the return of their ever-popular Metropolitan and Ruckus. Up in Canada (and in the rest of the world) the Italian inspired Metropolitan is badged as the Giorno, which means “day” in Italian. 2014 marks year two for the second generation Metropolitan (NCH50), while the Ruckus (NPS50) heads into it 12th year in North America.
Honda hasn’t made any changes to either of these models for 2014 except for three new colors for the Metropolitan (NCH50). The 2014 color options for the metro are now pink, royal blue and orange, which Honda has elegantly named Pink Metallic, Pearl Blue/Black and Candy Orange/Black respectively.
The Ruckus heads into 2014 with the same color options as 2012 and 2013: Black or White/Red (shown). Historically Honda hasn’t paid much attention the Ruckus aside from annual new colors, but now with the same colors now returning for a third year it’s clear Honda isn’t paying any attention at all to this older model - or they ordered way too many white and red parts when they made the first batch and they’re still clearing them out.
MSRP’s have yet to be announced, but they aren’t likely to stray far from the 2013 prices of $1999 (Metropolitan) and $2649 (Ruckus).
