Peugeot developed its first motorcycle in 1898 in time for the Paris Exhibition. The prototype, which had a small engine fixed to the rear wheel, was never commercially produced however, and it wasn’t until 1914, when the company built the first 500cc bike – with a double overhead camshaft – that Peugeot established itself as one of the main motorcycle manufacturers in France. Demand for a small, economical mode of transport spread through post-war Europe, leading to the birth of the scooter in Italy. As its popularity quickly grew, Peugeot responded by launching the S55 in 1953, a 50cc scooter with a steel body and nifty luggage compartment at the front. Distinct from its Italian counterpart, the model proved to be a winner and around 30,000 S55s were sold over the next seven years, mainly in France.
Although better known as a car manufacturer, since the 1950s, Peugeot brand scooters have earned a special status around the world, recognised for their innovation, distinctive styling, and always pushing the boundaries in terms of concept. Models such as the SV, Zenith, Speedake, and Buxy were hugely successful in the 1990s, so too the Scoot’Elec (the first electric scooter) and the sporty Speedfight 50. Fans have always loved the flair and Ã©lan of the French scooters which have managed to retain their own clear identity by sticking to strong design principles.
Today, Peugeot offers a wide range of scooters in the three main categories, 50cc, 125cc, and 200cc. Prized for their versatility, verve, and performance, the range includes models designed with the daily commute in mind as well as larger, more powerful scooters for riding in comfort on rural roads. Add to that the wide selection of practical and style accessories available, and it’s easy to understand the enduring appeal of Peugeot scooters.
