French two-wheeler brand Peugeot has unveiled its updated Django range of scooters, which includes 50cc and 125cc versions. For 2021, the retro-scooter has only undergone a few cosmetic changes. And remains mechanically identical to its previous iterations.
Speaking of the changes, the 2021 Django now sports a grille stacked vertically on the apron, inspired by the Peugeot 402. In addition, the brand has also added two new colors for the standard model: Racing Green and Polar White.
The Peugeot Django will also be available in two additional variants – Peugeot Django Sport and Django Dark – both with a single color finish and non-slip seat covers. The Dark variant will be offered in a Mad Black color, while the Sport variant will be offered in Satin Rouge Cherry and Mad Gray paints. And in homage to the brand’s racing past, the Sport variant will also sport two white stripes on the front fender and apron.
Peugeot sells the Django 50 with a two-stroke and a four-stroke engine. The first is 4.4PS and the second is 3.6PS. Its bigger brother, the Django 125 is powered by a 125cc four-stroke engine and produces an unchanged 10.34 hp.
As mentioned, no changes have been made to the fundamentals of either scooter. Both sport a 40mm telescopic fork and a 5-step adjustable rear shock. Braking equipment includes a 200mm front disc and a 190mm rear disc with single-channel ABS.
The price of the Peugeot Django 50 starts at 2,589 euros (around Rs 2.39 lakh) and goes up to 2,689 euros (around Rs 2.39 lakh) for the new variants. On the other hand, the standard Django 125 model sells for 3,189 euros (around Rs 2.84 lakh), while the Sport and Dark variants are priced at 3,289 euros or around Rs 2.93 lakh.
Even with extreme localization, Mahindra (Peugeot’s parent company) two-wheelers are unlikely to bring Django scooters to India, as that would still be a very high-end offering. But if you are looking for a stylish 125cc scooter, you can check out the Vespa range.
