Peugeot has introduced an entry level version of its Citystar executive scooter that shares most of the features of the top-of-the-range Citystar 125i, yet sells for £800 less, making it the most affordable GT scooter in the range.
Peugeot has made the saving by replacing the liquid-cooled/fuel-injected/4-valve engine fitted to the current Citystar 125i with the company’s new 2S Evo air-cooled 125cc single cylinder/twin valve motor, which is more cost-effective to manufacture thanks to its simpler design and larger production runs.
Aimed at urban riders who want the comfort of a GT executive scooter with the compact dimensions and quick handling of a smaller machine, the Citystar has a generous dual seat and plenty of legroom, as well as a lockable compartment under the seat big enough to accommodate two helmets and a handy glove box containing a 12V socket for charging devices while on the move.
Like the range-topping Citystar 125i, the air-cooled model has 13’’ alloy wheels, 37mm diameter front forks and adjustable rear suspension, for secure road holding and stability at speed. A 240 mm brake disc at the front and 210 mm disc at the rear provide controllable stopping power. Twin halogen 35W headlamps illuminate the road ahead and the dashboard is fully digital. A 90° turning radius makes the Citystar maneuverable in traffic and other tight spaces and at 145 kg the air cooled model is lighter than the liquid cooled version (at 150 kg).
Priced at £2,599- the Peugeot Citystar 125 AC is covered by a 2-year manufacturer’s warranty. For further information call 01202 810100 or visit peugeotscooters.co.uk.
