Peugeot’s new Kisbee 100 scooter combines performance and economy in a package designed specifically for the urban commuter.
The average UK commute is 8.6miles and the 100cc Kisbee has plenty of power to keep pace on busy urban routes and contend with out of town stretches too, and at just 680mm wide it can be squeezed through gaps in the traffic and into tight parking spaces.
Small capacity motorcycles and scooters like the Kisbee have dominated the new bike sales charts in recent years (45% of all new registrations this year were 125cc or under), due to the significant savings compared to running a car. Road tax costs just £17 a year for a sub-125cc motorcycle or scooter and powered two wheelers are exempt from most road tolls, including London’s congestion charge, and can be parked for free in most town and city centres.
Fuel savings are also significant; weighing just 92 kilograms and powered by a modern four-stroke engine, the Kisbee is capable of over 100 mpg (2.8 litres/100km).
With a seat height of 735mm, ample legroom and a relaxed riding position the Kisbee is easy to handle for riders of most shapes and sizes. Beneath the seat is a lockable storage compartment, large enough for most full-face helmets or some shopping.
Available in pearl black and ice white colours, the Kisbee 100 will sell at the introductory price of £1499 for a limited period, and is covered by a comprehensive two-year manufacturer’s warranty. Visit www.peugeotscooters.co.uk for more information and details of local stockists.
