The Orion Metro is relatively compact for an 8 mph scooter, making it a good choice for those that need speed, but who don't have the storage space for a full-sized scooter, or who need the extra manoeuvrability the Metro's excellent steering provides. The Metro has both front and rear suspension, although this suspension is not as good as that found on the higher-end Orion Pro and Comet Pro; the Metro also features notably smaller wheels at 11", rather than the 12" and 13" the other two respectively feature. Additional seat-post suspension is available as an extra if wanted. Twin 50 Ah batteries provide a good range of up to 21 miles on a single charge.
Invacare's rubberised shroud material makes the Orion Metro more resistant to impacts, reducing the chance of it picking up dangerous cracks and sharp edges. The colour-impregnated black plastic also minimises the visibility of scratches, helping to maintain the appearance of your scooter. Shroud changes are one of the most common repairs we have to do on scooters, and the Metro experiences far fewer of these than other scooters.
The full range of Invacare storage options can be fitted, including the ever-popular lockable front box, mobile phone holder and USB charger. A choice of classic colours including white, blue, green, silver and red are available as standard, while the premium range of metallic colours are an optional extra. This allows you to customise the appearance of your scooter, enhancing its modern and stylish appearance.
The Orion has a notably lower weight capacity than many other 8 mph scooters, at just 21 stone, which should be taken into account when ordering.
A two year warranty gives you the assurance that the Orion Metro is a reliable and sturdy scooter that can be trusted to perform for you in the long-term.
The Orion Metro doesn't offer the same luxurious comfort as larger scooters such as the Orion Pro, which feature a higher level of suspension - however, this is one of the compromises of having such a compact scooter. The Metro remains an impressive modern 8 mph scooter with a good range.
