Peugeot Motorcycles went back to their scooter roots in Milan and announced the launch of their new Django scooter to the public, adding that they did make a few scooters back in the 1960s by displaying an old S57 scooter too.

The Django features plastic panelwork around a tubular steel frame and four versions will be available from sports to sophisticated, determined by their finish and accessories. Engines will be 50cc, 125cc and 150cc automatics.

Overall – aesthetically at least – we have to admit it is quite an eye-catching scooter. Whereas most companies jumping aboard the ‘vintage’ bandwagon seem to hit on a standard cliché mix of modern and retro, to offer scooters that all kind of lookalike after a while, the Django here seems to have a more specifically designed look, offering 1950s styling without being over the top.

Unfortunately I can’t see the engines being powerful enough to tempt us here, which is probably good as plastic panels are never going to last as long metal ones either… shame though…
