Peugeot made its first motorised two-wheeler in 1898 and the French brand continues to lead the way, combining motion and emotion with a range of stylish scooters powered by technologically advanced engines.
Now in its 4th generation, the iconic Peugeot Speedfight is available in 125cc form, powered by the liquid-cooled ‘SmartMotion’ engine – making it the most powerful and also the most economical version to date. For riders on an AM licence, the Speedfight 50 is has the highest specification in its class and comes in 4-stroke and 2-stroke options.
The neo-retro Django is achieving cult status, thanks to its authentic Fifties French styling and fuel-injected EasyMotion motor, capable of more than 100mpg. It’s also available in 50cc form.
Big-wheel scooters are gaining popularity in the UK, because their larger tyres give reassuring road-holding on the country’s increasingly pot-holed and degraded roads. There are two models to choose from in Peugeot’s line-up; the Tweet 125 comes with the EasyMotion engine and SBC linked brakes, for controlled stopping power. The new Belville has the 125cc SmartMotion power plant and ABS brakes, for ultimate reassurance. Catering for a wide range of transport needs, the Tweet also comes in 50cc form, while the Belville offers the possibility of a 200cc EasyMotion engine.
Topping the range is the Peugeot Metropolis 400, the most technically advanced three-wheel scooter on the market today. Packed with innovations – Dual Tilting front wheels, Tyre Pressure Management System, Traction Control, ABS and keyless ignition – and an emergency braking warning system, that automatically triggers the hazard warning lights when the scooter slows suddenly. This A2 category motorcycle can be ridden on a car licence by drivers who passed their test before 2013.
