Urban Moto Imports announces it is the newly appointed distributor of Peugeot Scooters for Australia and New Zealand. The successful premium motorcycle distribution company will begin to forge a strong dealer network for Peugeot Scooters on the back of a launch of the new Euro 4 models.
‘The Peugeot brand has an extraordinary heritage of innovative engineering and design. We are very proud and excited to represent the brand in Australia and New Zealand, and look forward to seeing our dealership network grow with the new model range’ said CEO Joseph Elasmar.
Peugeot Scooters, one of the world’s oldest two wheel manufacturers, has been recognised as an emerging leader in European brands. The 2018 Mondial Paris Motor Show will this year be partnered by Peugeot in celebration of their own recent success in the international market, including Australia where Peugeot cars have achieved record sales in the last year. Confidence in the Peugeot brand is at an all-new high, with Australians embracing the brand’s exceptional quality and design.
The Euro 4 scooter range unveiled exclusively by Peugeot Scooters at the Milan Motorcycle Show in 2017 confirms the brand’s reputation for style. Offering an even wider range of features and a sleeker design, the Lion brand’s scooters will be available from dealers in a new range of versions, representing a stylish way for the world’s leading two-wheeler manufacturer to celebrate its 120-year legacy of innovation and success.
Australia and New Zealand will be offered a wide range of two and three-wheel models from 50cc to 400cc, including the Django, Metropolis, Kisbee, Tweet and Belville. Each model will come with a two year warranty and two year customer care program.
The first shipment is expected to arrive in September, with pre-orders to be activated well in advance. A new official website will be live shortly.

The range will consist of five models -
Inspired by the brand’s first scooter, the famous S55, Django conjures up images of the 1950s and the brand’s prestigious history. Django’s neo-retro look comprises vintage lines and in-vehicle technology combined with new fresh and irresistible colours. The Euro 4 range come standard with ABS. Available in both 125 and 150 cc.
The new Peugeot Metropolis (400cc) is the Lion brand’s latest three-wheel scooter. This scooter breathes the very essence of motoring spirit and draws its inspiration from Peugeot’s legacy of high-end designs. This model has already forged a reputation as the most technologically advanced in the market and is extending its lead over the competition with the new Euro 4 version, which takes advantage of a change in the European emission standards to raise the performance bar even higher. Boasting a safer, more comfortable and even sleeker design, this French-made scooter will prove a winner, both on the road and with future drivers.
Renowned for its agile handling and comfortable ride with its 16’’ wheels and its reduced wheelbase, this big wheel urban scooter comes with standard features: a lockable glovebox, a flat footboard and a bag hanger. Its generously sized double seat, which contains a pillion grip that helps when putting the scooter on its stand, and its retractable footrests mean that it is ideal for solo use or rides with a passenger. Finally, the new Dark Blue colour is available along with Jet Black, Antarctica White and Satin Iron Grey, along with a range of accessories. Available in 125 and 150 cc.
Peugeot Kisbee, the gold standard in Europe’s 50cc segment, carves a sublime figure with its compact, yet agile design and a new LED signature front light and two new colour schemes: stylish Blackcurrant and electrifying Flat 6 Red. The RS version goes for a sportier look with a new Satin Flash Silver paint scheme for a stunning effect.
Peugeot Belville proudly sports its Lion brand, with a set of distinctive signs that make it a scooter both modern and elegant. The Peugeot SmartMotion® 200cc engine that equips the Peugeot Belville scooter is a patented technology designed by Peugeot Scooters R & D. Compact and virtuous, this engine offers the best torque / consumption ratio in the range, plus a real reduction in noise and CO2 emissions
