Peugeot’s new Satelis 400i blends the practicality of a maxi scooter with class-leading performance.
Its 400cc four-valve fuel-injected engine puts out 37 hp with 38 Nm of torque – plenty of power for congested urban streets and for motorway cruising too. Mated to the twist & go CVT transmission, it makes light work of even the busiest of journeys, while generous 6,200-mile service intervals makes running the Satelis easy on the wallet too.
Designed for reliability as well as class-leading performance, the low friction engine requires little maintenance between services and its dual belt transmission is clean and fuss-free, with no messy chains to adjust or lubricate.
Unlike most maxi scooters, the Satelis has a large flat floor-pan, providing plenty of legroom, and special foot rests that allow riders to stretch their legs for feet-forward cruising, while the windscreen and aerodynamic body provide an effective shield from wind and weather. Passengers also enjoy a comfortable ride, thanks to the spacious dual seat and flip-out pillion foot pegs.
Peugeot Scooters have a reputation for great handling and the Satelis 400i continues this tradition, with 14-inch alloy wheels and Michelin City Grip tyres, combined with double steel cradle frame, telescopic front forks and preload-adjustable rear suspension. Twin 260mm front brake discs and Nissin hydraulic callipers, with a 240mm rear brake disc, provide powerful and predictable stopping power.
Practicality also features throughout; beneath the seat is a lockable storage compartment, large enough to hold two full-face helmets. For convenience, it opens via a button on the dash panel or by optional remote control. A car-style dash with digital displays of average and instantaneous fuel consumption, remaining range and much more, keeps the rider well informed. Standard equipment also includes LED daytime running lights, an on-board 12V socket and handy storage compartments in the leg-shields.
The Peugeot Satelis 400i is available in Pearly Black, Pearly White and Havana Grey, priced at £4599- on the road and is covered by a two year unlimited mileage manufacturer’s warranty. There is also a sporty RS edition, featuring tinted low profile screen, black wheels, polished stainless steel silencer and sports trim seat. Available in White Snow and Titanium colours, the RS sells for £4799. For details visit peugeotscooters.co.uk.
