Motorcycle insurance bargains: Peugeot Satelis 500

Motorcycle insurance costs are an important consideration for any bike buyer. That's why MCN is highlighting some of the best cheap-to-insure motorcycles out there. This time it's the Peugeot Satelis 500.                                             

Insurance group: 9
Engine: 491cc 4-stroke single
Power: 39bhp
Top speed: 105mph 
Weight: 213kg                      

Unlike most big scooters which aim for open road cruising ability as well as town prowess, the Peugeot Satelis maxi-scooter keeps small-scoot size and manoeuvrability. Plus it's only group 9 to insure.       

For commuting the Satelis 500’s fast pick-up and acceleration are ideal. The engine is good for over 100mph and it whizzes up to motorway speeds with ease. It’s smooth and quiet at motorway speed too, though using the throttle hard makes the fuel gauge drop quickly.

The enveloping bodywork and screen keep the worst of the weather off the rider, and despite being more compact then many large-capacity scooters there’s enough room for our 6ft tester. The pillion seat is spacious, and the boot-style underseat storage will take a full-face helmet (if you lie it on it’s side). There’s a locking cubby hole in the fairing too.
