Peugeot Citystar 125

Launched a of years ago in St Tropez the Citystar is shorter than the Satelis and lighter, it has a 1430mm wheelbase and the latest generation LFE fuel engine, which is not only but it is also quiet and 20% more efficient than the previous Peugeot claim it uses 3.5 per 100km and has a range of 161 miles the nine litre tank and should know because take testing seriously. The new has endured 400,000 km’s of testing, spent 5000 on the test bench and been put 20 tests which entails successive start ups.

on the Citystar is very cosmopolitan and Peugeot, they tend to a certain Gallic look to From the front the large grill, 35 watt twin headlights and restyled lion draw your eyes the dark screen, behind it the are virtually identical to the Satelis they’re laid out symmetrically and a useful digital screen plenty of info, plus a analogue speedo and a matching light cluster. The bodywork is very angular and looks a cross between a Satelis and its modern and pleasing to the eye.

Surprisingly quick

It’s not that I’m surprised by a learner scooter but apart from an momentary lag as I pulled away I was away by the acceleration on the Citystar. I was this was the 200cc version that one won’t be coming to the UK) than the 125cc but after the badge on the side I was even impressed, it really was a 125!

The engine has loads of power the rev range, plenty of grunt to out of corners and up those long hills and it stays strong up to the top indicated speed of just 80mph. Peugeot claim the is limited to 70mph and 10,000rpm but it very quick to me.

Aside from a great the Citystar has what are arguably the brakes on any scooter I’ve ridden. With a 240mm up front, gripped by four pot and a 200mm rear disc should be good but these are and there’s plenty of feel the levers. I’ve ridden with brakes that as efficient as these.

Star in the

Peugeot have given a lot of to the whole riding experience on the it has a 90 degree turning circle, low height (795mm), 13” alloys with excellent Michelin Sports, 37mm front and twin rear shocks, that short 1430mm and great steering geometry. The also carries its 155kg low down to aid stability and when you put ingredients together it means the Citystar can hustle its way through the hour with ease, it is a star in the city. The scooter is as useful out on the open road and it the twisty mountain roads we on, as did I. I’d have quite happily this scooter back St Tropez to the UK and kept it when I got

The specs may suggest the Citystar is small but it still feels a decent sized machine you’re sat on it, the weight leaves it planted and stable but without hard work at a standstill. On a level there’s a generous storage area (big for a full faced lid and a few odds and beneath the sumptuous dual there’s also a small with 12v socket, fold out bag and flat floorboards.

The Citystar may only be 125cc but it a mighty punch. I defy not to be impressed when they it.

The Citystar is also available in the special series RS trim for With its low-profile tinted windscreen sitting above the and chrome grille the Citystar has a appearance that is emphasised by the halogen 35W headlamps. Wheels, fork legs and passenger rail are all painted black, with the bodywork, in a choice of ice or titanium.
