Mahindra owned Peugeot launches new Citystar 200i

Peugeot Motorcycles is a subsidiary of the French automaker Peugeot that builds small motorcycles primarily for the French domestic market. Mahindra Two Wheelers Ltd, a unit of Mahindra and Mahindra Ltd (M&M), holds a 51 per cent stake in the company. They have just launched the 200cc Citystar 200i, which sits alongside the smaller-capacity Citystar 125.

Peugeot says that with 18.7bhp on tap, the new Citystar 200i is 33 per cent more powerful than its 125cc sibling, but only 2kg heavier with a claimed dry weight of 157kg. Because of those figures, according to Peugeot, the new 200cc Citystar is as compact and nimble as its smaller sibling but has the performance of a maxi scooter.

It's powered by a liquid-cooled four-valve single-cylinder engine with a fully automatic CVT transmission. Like its smaller sibling, it’s also on 13-inch wheels with 37mm diameter forks and five-way adjustable rear shocks. The wheelbase is a compact 1430mm. Furthermore, the scooter is only 750mm at its widest point. Braking in the front is handled by a 240mm single disc and a 210mm disc at the rear. The 200i also hosts room for two full-face helmets and a 12V charging socket under the seat.

The Citystar 200i is available in black or white and costs £3299 (Rs 3.17 lakh) in the UK. Mahindra Two Wheelers is looking to introduce their offerings to take on the Vespa line-up in India. With the French scooters, Mahindra is looking to get a stronger foothold in the two-wheeler market in India. Read more about that here.
