2015 Peugeot Django Evasion 125cc
Nippy little head-turning commuter scooter. Will happily hit 65mph and pulls well even with a pillion.
Plenty of under seat storage (fits an open face helmet and waterproofs) and has a 12V charging point in the front right storage panel.
Handles well in dry/wet and is super comfortable to ride. Mine has been as reliable as a Swiss watch and even after an arm injury (unrelated to riding), having sat un-ridden for 3 weeks, it fired up after about 5 minutes of trying.
Has been a great scooter and I’ve had loads of very positive comments about how smart it looks (although I have added Beatles decals and a few badges).
It’s economical to run, tax and insure. The only down side is the chrome racks are very susceptible to rust no matter how well looked after they are.
All in all it’s a great scooter! And I would thoroughly recommend it.

How Does It Compare?
The Second Opinion
I have had my Django 150cc Sport for just over 1000 miles now. Bought from new. I decided to buy the scoot after doing a fair bit of research into the competition and the Django seemed like the best for me.
I love the look of it..very retro..!! So far it has started immediately whether using the button or the kickstarter. I honestly cannot fault the scoot.
It will do more than 65mph (I bottle out before it does) the only criticism is the standard tyres but they will both get changed at some point. Plenty of room under the seat plus 2 storage compartments in the legshields (1 with a power outlet for phones etc) is very handy. On the Sport version you get a rear seat and also a plastic cover which can be put on instead of the seat to make it a solo machine. Looks great either way.
So... 1000 miles..no hiccups.. Am I loving it..?? ABSOLUTELY.

All I can say is up to now, touch wood, nothing has gone wrong with it. But compared to my last bike the Yamaha Xenter it feels like I've gone from a quality bike to a toy.
I bought it for the look of it. The tyres are bad, a couple of bolts have loosened by themselves and there may be a problem with rear brake because the back wheel is always black with dust. Also it's disheartening to find out after buying it that it's really a cheap Chinese Sym with a French badge on it.
Considering going back to the modern Yamaha scooters.
