Peugeot Scooter’s new big wheel LXR 125

17th February 2010

Peugeot Scooter’s new big wheel LXR 125 Peugeot has been in business for 200 years and for more that half of that time has been producing motorcycles. To celebrate its double century the French company will be launching several new models of scooter this year and first to arrive in the UK is the big-wheel LXR125.

Compact big wheel scooters are popular in Italy, as they offer superior handling over poorly maintained surfaces and are easy to manoeuvre in crowded city streets – benefits that are equally relevant to British roads. Driven by the latest Euro-3 compliant 125cc four valve liquid cooled 4-stroke engine, the LXR produces 12.5 hp and is more than capable of keeping pace with traffic flow. Its 16” wheels work with twin rear shock absorbers to give a comfortable ride and reassuring handling, while stopping power is provided by 220mm disc brakes front and rear.

With one in eight commuters considering switching to two-wheels to beat congestion [YouGov survey, June 2009] the frugal fuel consumption of the LXR and the ease with which it can be parked in tight spots will be added incentives. Available in a choice of ink blue and cotton white colours, the Peugeot LXR125 sells for £2499, including a 2-year manufacturer’s warranty.
