Peugeot have produced motorcycles since 1903, and in their early days enjoyed considerable race success, as well as producing a range of quality road going machines. By the 1950’s however, the company was producing mainly smaller capacity motorcycles and mopeds which found great acceptance in the market at the time. In recent years the Peugeot motorcycle brand is most recognised for a range of fashionable and easy to ride commuter bikes, including the Speedfight and Speedfight 2 scooter which features a ‘twist and go’ style transmission and nippy 50cc or 100cc motors.
Other Peugeot models include the more luxurious Elyseo and Elystar scooters. If you are looking for a used Peugot scooter, keep a close eye out for the many special editions which have been available over the years including the Prost, WRC and X-Team versions. Fun to ride and straightforward to maintain (though check it over carefully before you part with your cash!), a well looked after used Peugeot Speedfight (or indeed any of the many models in the Peugeot scooter range!) should make a great used buy.
