Who wouldn’t want to jump on one of one of these for a weekend ride through town. These beautiful scooters rival the Vespa in design, and starting at a MSRP of $1849 they give it a serious run for the money. The 49 cc Metropolitan II will go a quick 40 mph and gets about 100 miles per gallon. Maybe this is the answer to the energy crisis. Twenty-two liters of underseat storage will let you pack a lunch and go shopping with room to spare. The scooter comes in a variety of colors and patterns. Our favorite, solar, is available in a previous model.
