Peugeot Django 125cc is the most practical scooter from the french brand that could actually make to India in the premium space
Peugeot as a two-wheeler brand in India is all set to make its mark. It has just showcased one of its most important and most likely scooter that fit the Indian scooter market, here at the Auto Expo 2016. Called as the Django, its a part retro scooter on the outside with retro styling with a modern touch. Meanwhile on the inside it has all the budget chassis and engines to make sure the cost stay right and hence it can actually make it to our roads soon if the sales and service network open up.
Styling wise, it a pretty long and wide scooter at first glance, the wheel are big on paper but here they look small as the height of the scooter is low to the ground. To cover the long body there is a lot metal and plastic used and hence the weight of the scooter is really high at 140 kgs. The 125cc scooter uses a carburetor and makes just 10 BHP of power. It makes up for the styling this has as it has a lot of substance and presence with the body and detailing the scooter has all around. The retro wheels, beige and red paint scheme and detailed step seats make it look really attractive.
Mechanically it has disc brakes at the front, drum at the rear. Features wise, it has LED tail-lights, windscreen, semi-digital dash, glovebox with 12V charging points and much more. Finish and quality materials have been used around and the scooter is the next big thing in retro design as it stays true to the old school design while offering adequate performance and efficiency. This could literally see 60 plus aged riders getting back onto the roads. If it comes to India, expect it to be priced around the Vespa range of scooters which is around and above Rs. 80,000.
