Peugeot’s big wheel 50 scooter is now cleaner and greener thanks to a new electronic carburettor that reduces emissions and improves fuel economy.
Since the introduction of the Speedfight 50 in 1997, Peugeot has been a major player in the European market for 50cc scooters and has remained the UK’s top selling brand of moped for many years.
The Tweet’s 50cc four-stroke engine is now fitted with a Dell’Orto electronic carburettor, which controls the air/fuel mixture ratio, reducing fuel consumption, as well as emissions of CO2 and hydrocarbons. That’s good news for riders too, who will need to fill up the 5.7 litre tank less frequently thanks to fuel economy figures of 108 mpg (2.6l/100km).
Fully automatic CVT ‘twist and go’ transmission makes it easy to ride and the 16-inch wheels, telescopic front forks and adjustable rear shock absorbers deliver nimble and sure-footed handling, even on poorly maintained urban routes.
At just 690mm wide, it’s narrow enough to squeeze through tight gaps in traffic with confidence. Coupled with a kerb weight of just 100kg, it also makes parking easy too.
Dual seat, fold-out foot pegs and chunky grab rail give plenty of comfort for a passenger, while the large underseat storage bay and handy luggage rack provide extra carrying capacity.
The Peugeot Tweet 50 is available from authorised Peugeot Scooter dealers, at £1899, including a two year, unlimited mileage warranty, for complete peace of mind.
Two new colour schemes – Satin Iron Grey and Dark Blue – join the line-up, alongside the existing Jet Black and Antarctica White versions. For details on the Tweet 50 and to view the full Peugeot Scooters range, call 01202 823344 or visit www.peugeotscooters.co.uk
