Here in the country, when we hear the name Peugeot, the first thing that comes to mind is an image of a car, most likely the 2008, which is one of their best-selling cars in the Philippines.
What many don’t know is that the name Peugeot is also linked to the manufacturing of motorcycles. In fact, Peugeot Motorcycles built their first motorcycle during the time when Filipinos were fighting for independence against the Spanish Empire in 1898. This makes the brand one of the oldest motorcycle manufacturers in the world with its 124 years of rich history.
On July 24, 2022, Peugeot Motorcycles officially arrived in the Philippines and will be distributed by Motostrada.
The first model that will be offered by Peugeot Motorcycles to Pinoy riders is the Django – a modern scooter inspired by the scooters that were ridden by Parisian riders in the 1950s, particularly, the Peugeot S55.
The Django 150 is powered by an air-cooled, 150.6cc four-stroke EFI engine and is capable of producing 12 PS of power and 9.2 Nm of torque. Underneath the seat is a big storage box that can fit a helmet, while the step board also offers a very spacious real estate for your legs or just about anything that you can carry when you run for errands.
The Django also offers its riders a place to safely charge their mobile phone thanks to a glovebox that is fitted with a 12V outlet as standard. Other features include LED lighting with a front halogen lamp, a digital/analog dashboard, ABS, chrome bodywork, and an 8.5-liter fuel tank that, theoretically, could take its rider up to 350 kilometers in just one top-up.
The Django 150 will be offered in three variants: the monotone base model will be sold at PHP 199,000 and will be available in Mad Gray and Bleu France.
To pay homage to Peugeot’s S55 scooter that first appeared in 1955, a Deep Ocean Blue and Satin Red Cherry-colored Djangos will bear the “55” badge complete with racing stripes and will be available at PHP 205,800.
The top model Django will feature a 2-tone retro-inspired color of Milky White/Deep Ocean Blue and Milky White/Orange will be available at PHP 216,800. Peugeot Motorcycles are available at the Motostrada showroom located at 8th Street corner 11th Avenue, Grace Park, Caloocan City.
