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 Speedfight 50.                                               

Insurance group: 1
Engine: 49cc 2-stroke single
Power: 3bhp
Top speed: 30mph 
Weight: 97kg                      

When it comes to scooters, there’s none more iconic and successful than the Peugeot Speedfight. For 2009 Peugeot redesigned it from the ground up, bringing it firmly into the 21st century. Plus it's only group 1 to insure.       

For the Peugeot Speedfight3 50, two new engines are available – either air or liquid-cooled. Both are Euro 3 compliant two-strokes and both feel fairly nippy, although we preferred the liquid-cooled version. It sounded as sweet as a nut and would produce another 500rpm over its air-cooled stable mate – essential extra power on a 50!

Thanks to a redesign there’s now enough space to accommodate a full face lid under the seat – or the optional Peugeot stereo system which plugs into the 12v socket and includes an iPod dock, sub and amp. The speakers mount into the dummy air intakes on the side of the rear panels. It also has handlebar-mounted controls. Cool or what?
