Now arriving in UK dealers, Peugeot’s Belville big-wheel scooter is available with a choice of the latest 125cc and 200cc engines.
Already big-sellers in Europe, big-wheel scooters are gaining popularity in the UK, because their larger tyres give reassuring road-holding on the country’s increasingly pot-holed and degraded roads.
Named after the famous district of Paris, the Belville’s LED headlight and its signature “triple claw” daytime running tail-light add to its stylish lines, increasing visibility by day and by night too.
The Belville 125 is fitted with the new, liquid-cooled SmartMotion® engine, which combines two advanced technologies – Low Friction Efficiency (LFE) and ACG (Alternative Current Generator) management, for high performance, low emissions and excellent fuel economy – up to 113mpg [2.5L/100km].
The Belville 200 is powered by the air-cooled, fuel injected EasyMotion® engine, which combines low emissions with high-torque performance.
Both models come with a 260mm front disc brake and ABS as standard – the rear on the 125 is a 220mm disc and the 200 gets a slightly larger 240mm brake.
There’s space for a full face helmet in the storage bay under the seat and a lockable glove compartment with a USB charger too. A 37-litre colour-matched top case comes as standard on the Allure version.
The Peugeot Belville 125 Allure and sporty RS are available from all authorised Peugeot dealers, priced £3099* The Peugeot Belville 200i is available in Allure and sporty RS versions, both retailing at £3199*. All are covered by a 24-month manufacturer’s warranty
