Just as promised, Peugeot has taken the wraps off their 2020 Metropolis 3-wheeler. As we predicted, the new Metropolis is based on the Metropolis RS concept unveiled at the 2019 EICMA.
The most distinct change is the new façade that features smaller headlights with integrated LED daytime running lamp “fangs” and a reshaped front grille.
The Metropolis is now powered by a Euro-5 compliant, 399cc four-stroke, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine. It produces 35.6 PS and 38.1 Nm of torque. This is paired with a CVT transmission that drives the rear wheels.
Peugeot claims it is capable of reaching a top speed of 135 km/h and achieve an average fuel consumption figure of 25.6 km/L. That may not seem impressive, but paired with a 13 liter tank, should provide respectable range.
The Metropolis comes with a number of features like an adjustable windshield, adjustable backrest, and rear trunk for storage. There is no underseat storage, but it does offer a flat floorboard. It also comes with Peugeot’s I-Connect feature which allows the motorcycle to be paired with a smart phone and display notifications in the onboard display.
In addition, the motorcycle comes with 3-channel ABS, and an anti-tilting system when at a standstill.
Unfortunately, the Metropolis is not offered in the Philippines. In France, however, it’s offered at a price of EU€9,699 (PhP558,142).
