Peugeot Django Goes 50cc, Still Retro-Sweet

Peugeot shows the small-displacement version of their retro-sweet Django scooter. These new two-wheelers are also intended for teenagers and come in an immense number of customizable variations to suit pretty much any needs.

The 50cc Django carries on the proven offer of its 125cc and 150cc predecessors and Peugeot serves no less than four distinct trims, Heritage, Evasion, Sport, and Allure.

As the bigger Djangos could be customized with "24 colours in the catalogue, three types of rear-view mirror, seven different saddles, bright aluminium or chrome body trims and a unique light signature", we can expect that the smaller siblings replicate such amazing possibilities. That would account for 118,000 unique combinations, and this spells true freedom.

Retro looks packed with modern feats

When Peugeot delivered the first Django, it was an obvious move into Vespa's turf, even though with a twist. Vespa epitomizes the iconic retro looks of mid-20th-century two-wheelers and is keen on retaining that attire despite the passing of time.

Django introduces a half-retro styling that blends in the '50s lines with updated touches that should appeal to both young and more mature audiences. Nevertheless, Django IS an alternative to Vespa, especially with all the available options, in terms of both colors and accessories.

The lighting is all-LED, and the glove compartments includes a 12V outlet. The cool aluminium wheels are equipped with a combined braking system called Synchro Braking Concept (SBC) that distributes the braking force between the two axles.

A retro dashboard incorporates an analog speedo and top-notch LCD section that offers multiple readings, including temperature and fuel level.

So far Peugeot is secretive as to the tech specs of both the 2-stroke and 4-stroke machines, but we're delving deeper into this and will be back with extra info. However, the prices have been made public, and their range between €2,249 ($2,520) for the 4-stroke Django Heritage and €2,749 ($3,080) for either version of the Django Allure.
