Peugeot tempt commuters as rail fares rise

Posted August 17th, 2012 in News Leave a comment

Peugeot scooters have announced savings of up to 20% on three of their most popular models as part of an on-going campaign to encourage commuters onto two wheels. The current offer brings the price of a new 50cc Kisbee scooter down from £1549 to £1229, while the big wheel Tweet 50 is now £1379.  Prices for the iconic Speedfight3 sports scooter start at £1679, down from £1999.

Sales of new scooters in the UK rose by 11.7% last year and demand is growing steadily this year too, up by a further 6.3% in the first six months of 2012 (source www.mcia.co.uk).  News that some rail fares in England will rise by 6.2% in January – about double the rate of inflation – is expected to give a further boost to sales of scooters and small capacity motorcycles, as cash-strapped commuters review their transport options.

Anyone who obtained a full UK car licence before 1st February 2001 is automatically entitled to ride a moped without L-plates (D-plates in Wales), which means there is no complicated paperwork to complete before riding away to enjoy the freedom of two wheels.
