Thanks to PEUGEOT’s great passion and astounding innovations, the brand’s cycles and motorcycles have emerged as world leaders in competition and in the public’s eye. PEUGEOT is one of the rare manufacturers to be on a par for its 2, 3 and 4 wheelers.
With Armand Peugeot at the helm and following tests on the Grand Bi, Peugeot launched its series-manufactured, chain-driven bikes and trikes at its Beaulieu plant.
Following its 1898 motorized trike launch, Peugeot presented its first 198 cc, 1.5hp motorbike.
Between 1901 and 1939, Peugeot showcased 61 models that ranged from 100 to 745 cc.
In 1934, its P515 (495 cc) beat 9 world records, including the 3,000 km race where it clocked an average of 118 km/h.
Peugeot now offers a 100 to 250 cc range of mopeds and motorbikes.
Peugeot launches production of its S55 and S57 scooters with a design that is reminiscent of their 4-wheeled 203 sister.
Record-breaking sales with the P103 and P104 series on the moped market (limited to 50 cc) where Peugeot has been at the forefront since 1949.
Scooters are back in fashion and Peugeot launches its SC and SX series, the first scooters designed with plastic bodywork.
The PY10 FC revolutionizes racing bikes with its carbon-composite frame. It gains a great reputation from both professionals and amateurs.
Anticipating its customers’ wishes, Peugeot Cycles launches the first off-road bike in France.
Cycleurope are responsible for manufacturing and marketing, and will become the owner of the entire production tool.
Following on from the success of the Elystar, Peugeot’s first ABS series-equipped 125 cc scooter, the brand launches its Satelis and Geopolis GT scooters inspired by the automotive world.
First electrically-assisted pedal bicycle (EAPC) from the brand as part of an overarching vision of mobility.
PSA sold 51% of Peugeot Scooters to the Indian manufacturer, while retaining a 49% stake and the use of the brand image. This collaboration favours greater internationalisation and paves the way for new products.
As a nod to history, two adventurers succeeded in completing the trip from Paris to Ho Chi Minh City on Django scooters, in tribute to Serge Gracium and Michel Vaslin who made the reverse journey in 1956 on the Peugeot S57.
In a context where access to city centres is increasingly restricted, in 2017 PEUGEOT becomes the first car brand to market new multimodal mobility solutions. The e-Kick electric scooter and eF01 electric folding cycle complement the car and give greater freedom to urban travel.
