Peugeot displayed the fourth generation of the iconic Speedfight scooter for the first time in the UK at Motorcycle Live last week – the new Peugeot Speedfight 4.
More than half a million Speedfight scooters have been built since its launch in 1997 and the new Speedfight 4 gets a new look and a new engine.
Change is most obvious from the front – twin optical 35W headlights, micro bulb crystal turn indicators, restyled grille and instrument console. The dashboard also gets a makeover, with an on-board digital multifunction computer and USB socket for smartphone connectivity.
There are two engine choices. The standard model has an air-cooled 50cc 2-stroke power plant, with new Dell’Orto carburettor, producing 3.8 horsepower (2.8 kW) when de-restricted and a 4.8 horsepower (3.6 kW) liquid cooled version.
Braking is beefed up with a shuricane 215 mm front disc with radial calliper and black painted piston.
There are three colour options for the standard model – blue France, flat red and fluo apple green – and a further three special edition models, the Darkside in mad black, Iceblade in icy white and Pure, also in icy white. The special editions all get the liquid cooled engine and 190 mm shuricane rear disc brake as standard.
The new Speedfight 4 is expected to arrive in UK showrooms in summer 2015 and prices will be announced closer to the time.
