Picture special: Peugeot's new Satelis 500 maxi-scooter

Peugeot’s new maxi-scooter, the Satelis 500, is one of the best-equipped – and most affordable – superscooters yet, as Kevin Ash discovered during his first test in MCN in its October 31 issue.

What comes across most though is the quality of the Satelis, as our pictures here show: Push the seat shut and it closes with a satisfying thunk more like an executive car door’s than a scooter, while the fit and finish generally are impressive.

The level of equipment is high and the information on the dash is comprehensive, including a rev counter and various warnings including seat open.

The ABS version with some other extras such an integral lock costs another £500, and if you add further accessories such as the capacious top box (which cleverly pivots back s you can still open the front-hinged seat) or sat nav, the price will climb.

But even so, with its performance and quality, that well-known badge and a two year warranty, the Satelis looks like the best buy in the class.

Check out our exclusive photographs to see what this Peugeot Satelis 500 has to offer. More details can be found in the road test in this week's MCN.
