Fuel Injection Coming to Honda Scooters

With increasingly tightening emissions standards, it is just a matter of time before all carbureted vehicles are phased out. The question is, how much will those vehicles need to change in order to meet the new requirements – or will they cease to exist altogether.

Now we know that at least the Honda Metropolitan and Ruckus scooters will survive. It may have taken a lot of work but, based on this recently published patent application, it looks like Honda has figured out how to get a fuel injection unit integrated into a 49cc engine.

The full patent application can be viewed here.
