The new Django scooter will be hitting Peugeot dealers this year and there will be four models of the 125cc four-stroke motor to choose from: Heritage, Sport, Evasion and Allure.

Inspired by Peugeot’s S55/S57 scooter of the 1950s, the new two-wheeler from the French manufacturer features rounded rear wings, long flowing body work to hark back to the golden era of retro styling. However, the new scooters benefit from the technology of today and include 200mm diameter disc brakes on the front and rear, as well as SBC – Synchro Braking Control – which works to distribute braking effort simultaneously to both wheels. The front and rear indicators, rear light and running lights are all powered by LED bulbs too.

The Heritage is available in four colour options – black, white and paste shades of blue and green. It features chrome mirrors and white wheels.

The Sport version comes in silver or blue with grey wheel rims and sports number stickers on the front and rear. The sport dual seat has a removable passenger seat shell and chrome handgrip.

The Evasion is available in two-tone pistachio, red, blue or orange. The wheel rims are white and have white-wall tyres. The painted rear-view mirrors have a chrome surround and the fly screen and chrome front luggage rack come as standard.

The top of the range Allure, features two-tone body work in a choice of blackcurrant, silver, white or grey. It has grey wheel trims, white-wall tyres and a three-tone dual seat. This scooter features a colour-match top case, passenger back-rest and chrome rear luggage rack as standard equipment as well a fly screen and painted mirrors with a chrome surround.

These scooters won’t be available in the UK until the summer so keep an eye out on the website:
