Days after Mahindra2Wheelers bought majority stake of 51% at ailing Peugeot Scooters business of Peugeot, spyshots have come out, of what appears to the first lot of Peugeot scooters  have arrived for testing in the country.

Of the bunch of the scooters spied, The Peugeot Speed Fight 3, Street Zone, Citystar 150 and Satelis scooters have already landed in India, apparently for R&D purposes. The Speed Fight and Street Zone are compact scooters while the Citystar and Satelis belong to the full-sized GT category and are designed for long distance journeys.

The SpeedFight 3 is available with a 50 cc two-stroke and 125 cc four-stroke engine options. The latter is air-cooled and produces 10.5 bhp. The Streetzone is a punitive 50 cc lightweight moped which is primarily aimed at youngsters with a restricted license. The 2-stroke runabout produces a modest 4.02 bhp.

The Citystar is available in various displacements and the example spotted in India is powered by a 150 cc liquid-cooled four-stroke engine which is capable of 11.14 bhp. The Satelis tourer is available in 125 and 300 cc guises with the smaller model delivering an impressive 14.75 bhp. The performance details of the new 300 cc variant have not been released but the scooter will cater to A2 license holders in Europe.  

The automatic scooter segment in India is growing at a rapid pace, it would prove beneficial Mahindra to utilize the knowhow of fit and finish of Peugeots premium high quality products and ba first mover in the yet to be tapped high-performance scooter segment in the country. The now defunct but a wonderful Kinetic Blaze was the only big scooter to have taken a shot at the premium segment but then, the market dynamics and conditions were far from ideal.
