3 things that make the Peugeot Django 150i the perfect city commuter
If you’re looking to hit the streets in style and comfort, the Peugeot Django 150i could be the perfect scooter for you.
You may be familiar with Peugeot, the French car manufacturer that has made a comeback in recent years. However, did you know that under a completely separate entity owned globally by Mahindra, Peugeot also makes motorcycles and scooters? Yes, Peugeot Motocycles—without the”r” is well and truly a real thing, and it’s available in the Philippines. The brand made its local debut a few months ago under the distributorship of Motostrada.
Needless to say, the French marque is in good hands as Motostrada is also responsible for handling the likes of MV Agusta and CFMOTO in the country. That being said, Peugeot enters the local market with just one model, but it’s a scooter that’s certainly worthy of your attention, especially if you’re a practical motorcyclists looking for a versatile and dependable two-wheeler to be ridden on the daily, while carrying loads of retro-inspired charm and character. We’re talking about none other than the Django 150i, and here are a few reasons why it’s worth considering.
Peugeot's unique, modern-yet-retro appearance gives it a distinct edge in the market. The Django's bodywork is inspired of 1950s automobiles. The Django looks like an instant classic on two wheels thanks to its rounded lines, chrome, and vivid colors. Modern construction methods and materials, together with premium bodywork that give the bike its form, add to its allure. In fact, the Django 150i has classic scooter style that is reminiscent of Vespa but with a new taste.
When it comes to performance, the Peugeot Django 150i clearly wants to take things slow thanks to its laid-back nature. It is powered by a 150cc, four-stroke, SOHC, twin-valve, air-cooled engine. When coupled with a CVT, the engine produces 10 horsepower and 9.2 Nm of torque. Additionally, the scooter sports a set of 12-inch wheels as well as standard ABS and disc brakes on all four corners. The bike's 770mm seat height is sufficient for even some of the shortest riders to swing a leg over, and it has an 8.5-liter fuel capacity.
Features and price
Aside from its timeless, classic style, the Django 150 has all the benefits and useful extras of the reliable old scooter. It has a flat footboard for comfortable riding, a 12-volt power outlet concealed in the lockable glove box on the right side, LED lights all around, and a semi-digital dashboard, to name a few features. The cost will vary depending on the color you choose. Gray and blue are examples of solid colors, and both cost P199,000. The red and blue Sportstripe variations are more expensive, costing P205,800. The two-tone range, which starts at P216,800, blends an ivory white with either blue or red, and is arguably the most stunning hue in the collection.
