When it comes to scooters, there’s none more iconic and successful than the Peugeot Speedfight.
The French runabout has been around for an impressive 12 years selling a staggering half a million units around the world during that time. For 2009 Peugeot redesigned it from the ground up, bringing it firmly into the 21st century. The all-new Speedfight 3 features fully-revised chassis and ergonomics and a choice of two different engines/specs.
Peugeot celebrate 20 years of the Speedfight
In 2017 Peugeot launched a special edition Speedfight 50cc to celebrate 20 years of production. The scooter had shifted over half a million units and was in its fourth incarnation. The special edition got a cosmetic makeover with a black double-stitched seat with a removable pillion cowl, aluminium footboards, plus a Snakebike sports exhaust system.
Peugeot Streetfight 50 Total Sport
In April 2016 Peugeot unveiled a special 'Total Sport' edition of their new Speedfight 4, coinciding with the model's 20th year of production, and marking the manufacturer's two decades of partnership with oil giant Total.
Based on the fourth generation of the Speedfight scooter, the Total Sport featured a liquid-cooled two-stroke engine, fed by a Dell’Orto carburettor, which delivered 5% more power and 15% more torque than the previous model. An inverted 32mm fork and a remote reservoir rear shock absorber, combined with the 12-inch alloy wheels, low profile tyres and the fuel tank location under the foot-board, all combined to deliver improved stability and sharper handling.
The Speedfight's styling was claimed to be inspired by Peugeot’s ‘Exalt’ concept car, with twin helicoid headlights, separated by the distinctive grille and aviation-style fuel cap.
Complementing the Total racing livery and matt black bodywork were highlighted inserts in the air intakes, aluminium footrests, pearly saddle-cover, micro lamp crystal turn indicators, a rear spoiler and inverted sports silencer. The dashboard had both USB and 12V sockets and accommodated a RAM X-Grip smartphone holder.
The Speedfight 4 Total Sport was priced £2099.
