Default Metropolitan vs elite

What the difference? Elite is air cooled, metro is water. Is one better. I dont care how they look, I can change that.

The Elite is an 80 cc air cooled 2 valve motor. Elite 80's are pretty slow, and there is not much you can do to improve them. They are very reliable and get great mileage. I have an '87 Elite and it does about 42 mph and gets 90-115 mpg.

I believe the metro uses the same engine as the Ruckus. I don't know much more than that though. The Elite 80 is not made anymore, so the metro/ruck is probably better. It's a newer design at least.
