Peugeot Citystar 125

The new star of the city. Peugeot release new French built model for the Euro market.

Peugeot

The new compact GT scooter from Peugeot dubbed Citystar is the latest addition to an already extensive 125 range of 6 models, comprising 3 large-wheel models (Tweet, LXR and Geopolis) and 3 other classic models (Sum-Up, Vivacity and Satelis).

Citystar is the seventh 125 model available in the catalogue and is positioned as the missing link between the entry-level vehicles (Sum-Up and Vivacity) and the high-end Grand Tourisme Satelis: Peugeot has never offered its customers so much choice.

With its conventional design and compact size, Citystar 125 is well placed to become the new star of the city: its 35L storage volume, its engine performances, its level of comfort and equipment and its consumption cut to just 3.5L/100 kms are bound to win over city dwellers of both sexes on a segment representing 33% of 125 scooter sales in Europe.

Available as of spring 2011, Citystar will be manufactured in France at the Mandeure site (Doubs) in line with the Marque's undertakings given back in 2008.

ROAD HANDLING: PLEASURE AND SAFETY

Another strong point for the Citystar is its road handling A worthy successor to the Elystar whose rideability it retains, the new model also boasts excellent directional stability inspired by Satelis. Riding is instinctive and instantly reassuring with a seat positioned at 795 mm.

Positioning of the tank under the flat pan lowers the centre of gravity and plays a key role in terms of the quality of road handling in the same way as the Michelin Pilot SC pneumatic tyres which offer optimum grip whatever the road conditions.

To the rear, the small 130/60-13 tyre is more rigid and limits deformations of the structure. In terms of ground contact, the 37mm hydraulic fork combined with twin adjustable suspensions ensure extra precision.

When it comes to agility, the Citystar is all the more responsive thanks to its compact size. Its overall length of 199 cm (-17 cm compared to Satelis) and its wheelbase of 143 cm (-7 cm) are real advantages when it comes to manoeuvrability. The vehicle's geometrics benefit from a caster angle limited to 28° and a turning radius of 45°, so allowing Citystar to thread its way through traffic with amazing efficiency.

COMPACT SIZE, GT EQUIPMENT

Whether in terms of safety, storage or comfort, Citystar steps up to the plate.

Because it is important to feel at ease when riding a scooter, Citystar offers high-quality braking combining control, power and progressiveness with 2 front/back discs of 240 mm and 210 mm respectively.

But safety isn't just about braking. For greater visibility, Citystar is fitted with twin halogen headlamps of 2x35W for optimised visual comfort. The halogen headlamps offer 30% extra lighting enabling any night obstacles to be spotted earlier and greater visibility in the day thanks to permanent lighting.

For city riding, Citystar makes journeys safer thanks to the presence of warning lights which can be handy in the event of a breakdown. The indicators are combined with a sound repeater which serves as a useful reminder.

Despite its compact size, Citystar boasts XL storage space. In fact, its storage compartment can accommodate 2 helmets, 1 full-face and 1 half-jet while its handy flat pan can be used to transport cumbersome objects such as a satchel or pack of water. There is also a bag hook and a glove box with a 12V socket for mobile phone recharge when riding.

With its carefully defined ergonomics, Citystar also helps ensure maximum comfort for driver and passenger. The broad, soft seat is designed to limit leg spread so the feet can be firmly planted on the ground which is particularly useful for smaller individuals and women riders. A built-in minibackrest ensures a snug fit for the driver's lower back while the retractable foot rest and aluminium ergonomic handle guarantee optimum positioning for the passenger.

Citystar has 2 support stands on which Peugeot engineers have enhanced the ergonomics for easy parking: fitted with an ergonomic support shoe, the central one enables easy parking of the 155 kg scooter. The side one is fitted with a circuit cut-out.

In addition to its comfort levels and practical qualities, Citystar has an amazing digital dashboard inspired by the car with 3 satin chrome dials. Nothing has been overlooked: blue back lighting, needle sweep on ignition, tachometer, odometer, trip counter, maintenance indicator, outside temperature indicator with flashing warning as of 3°C. The visible electronic ignition lock with its flashing LED supplements the equipment aimed at protecting Citystar from any unwanted attention .
