French scooter manufacturer Peugeot is offering a pair of limited edition versions of its Speedfight 50 moped, retailing at £2199.
The Speedfight has become a European classic since its introduction over 20 years ago, combining sporty styling with sharp steering. The limited edition models, known as the Pure and Total Sport, are based on the fourth generation Speedfight and are powered by Peugeot’s venerable air-cooled two-stroke engine.
Taking the scoot down the sporty route, the Total Sport variant is inspired by Peugeot’s Dakar rally car, the 2008 DKR. It features tough looking matt black and grey bodywork with red trimmings, while the 50 Pure comes in a bright Icy White livery with classic rose gold alloy wheel and matching air ducts and headlight surrounds.
Both bikes are highly specified. The dashboard has both a USB charging point, 12 volt power socket and an X-grip smartphone holder that should be perfect for riders looking to use their phone as a sat-nav. Other extras include aluminium footboards, rear spoiler, passenger seat cowl, premium seat stitching and LED indicators.
The Speedfight is well known for its fun handling and chunky looking 32mm upside down forks, 13” alloy wheels, sporty tyres and decent rear suspension make it one of the most fun to ride mopeds on the market. A large, 215mm front brake disc gripped by a four-piston radially mounted caliper gives it good stopping power too.
The Speedfights come with a two-year unlimited mileage parts and labour warranty. Both can be ridden on an AM licence, making them accessible to anyone aged 16 or over, who has a provisional license and have passed their compulsory basic training (CBT). AM category scooters can also be ridden by anyone who passed their car driving test before 1st February 2001, without the need to take any extra tests.
