A highly esteemed company for over 100 years, but Peugeot did not start out as a bike manufacturer…
For over a century-and-a-half Peugeot products, including sewing machines, coffee grinders, bicycles, motorcycles and, later, cars have carried some form of lion emblem as a mark of their superiority and strength. First appearing way back in 1848, the highly stylised logo we are so familiar with today was developed in the 1930’s.
Now known predominantly as a car and motor scooter manufacturer, Peugeot first began producing motorcycles back in 1898 with their first two-wheel bike, the Moto Bicyclette, being launched in 1901. Today, Peugeot’s main motorcycle focus is their highly popular scooter range, of which Honda owns a 25% stake.
Over the last decade or so, the entry level 50cc Ludix Scooter has been a highly popular offering, with the Blaster RS12 having a reputation as the fastest accelerating 50CC on the market. Current Peugeot bikes range from 50cc on the base range V-Clic to 500cc on the Satelis models, giving the French company a high profile in the high-powered scooter market.
