New look for Peugeot Speedfight 50

Share
Auto Trader’s reigning ‘Best AM’ machine, for 50cc machines in the AM-licence class aimed at 16-year-olds, the Speedfight effectively invented the ‘sports scooter’ when first introduced in 1997 and this latest, fourth generation version, as introduced in 2015, remains at the top of the class.

That sporty DNA is immediately obvious from the front, with its twin optical 35W headlights, micro bulb crystal turn indicators, restyled grille and instrument console.

The updated dashboard features both USB and 12V sockets and comes ready-fitted with a RAM® X-Grip® smartphone holder; it also boasts an on-board digital multifunction computer.

While to match the racy looks, there are 32mm inverted front forks, a remote reservoir rear shock absorber, 13-inch alloy wheels and sporty twin piston radial brakes which all give sporty, sharp handling.

At the heart of the latest Speedfight is a liquid-cooled, 50cc single-cylinder four-stroke motor, breathing through a Dell'Orto electronic carburettor, which controls the air/fuel mixture ratio, increasing fuel economy, while reducing emissions of CO2 and hydrocarbons.

And now this special ‘Total Sport’ version, new for 2019 and inspired by the Peugeot 2008 DKR Dakar rally car, gets matt black bodywork with special racing livery including highlighted red inserts in the air intakes for an aggressive look, contrasting red seat stitching, a rear spoiler and passenger seat cowl, aluminium footplates and micro lamp LED turn indicators – all for £2499.
