The 4th generation of the iconic Peugeot Speedfight is now available in 125cc form, powered by an all-new, liquid-cooled ‘SmartMotion’ engine. Maintaining its position as the definitive sports scooter, it is the most powerful Speedfight to date and also the most economical – it’s capable of returning 134 mpg [2.1 litres/100 km], giving riders the best of both worlds.
Twin LED headlights emphasise this bike’s sporting intentions, framed by signature lighting above the front grille, ‘ice effect’ indicators and rear light layout styled into lion’s claws.
At its heart is the liquid-cooled SmartMotion motor, featuring SYNERJET single-indirect fuel injection and patented ACG [Alternative Current Generator] management. This ingenious system disables the flywheel during acceleration and deceleration phases, but only when the battery is sufficiently charged, increasing fuel economy by more than 5% (measured on the on WTMC 1.2 cycle), and making more power available during the starting phase.
Stopping power has also been upgraded, with the introduction of Peugeot’s Synchro Braking Concept [SBC], which simultaneously activates the powerful 215 mm front and 190 mm rear disc brakes, when the left hand lever is applied. This distributes braking effort so that the scooter slows down, without locking the wheels or diving at the front end. In case of emergency, applying the right-hand lever as well adds stopping power to the front brake.
Designed for the digital era, the Speedfight 125i has a digital dashboard with backlit LCD display and is fitted with a USB socket, to keep you connected on the go. It is also prepared to accept an X-Grip smartphone holder.
Now arriving in UK showrooms, the Speedfight 125i is set to sell for the launch price of £2599* – including an unlimited mileage factory 24-month warranty – a very competitive price tag for a premium specification scooter from a major European brand.
