Peugeot has introduced a sporting version of its acclaimed Satelis 250 and 500 models in a striking two tone matt and pearl black colour scheme that emphasises the maxi-scooter's striking looks.

From the front the tinted low profile wind deflector sits above twin halogen headlights for a sleek and determined appearance. The French manufacturer has paid attention to detail by fitting matching matt black hydraulic telescopic forks and dual finish alloy wheels with machined sides and black rims. The black heat shield on the exhaust has a titanium-look finish, adding to the quality feel of this machine, which is further enhanced by the sumptuous double-stitched RS special edition sport seat with Alcantara® fabric insert. Alcantara® is a revolutionary fabric that combines elegance with durability and is chosen by major car brands for upholstery on their luxury models.

Both the 250 and 500cc versions of the Satelis RS retain the key performance and comfort features that have generated widespread praise for its design. Its modern singe cylinder 4-stroke liquid cooled 4-valve motor offers and excellent power-to-weight ratio, while the high tensile steel dual cradle chassis offers class leading handling. Michelin tyres are fitted as standard to the RS. Generous legroom, a handy glove compartment (capable of holding a litre size bottle of water) and 12V power socket provide comfort and convenience.

Carrying capacity is catered for with a cavernous storage bay beneath the seat, which lifts using a hydraulic jack, similar to those found on hatchback cars.

The Peugeot Satelis RS 250 is available for £3,899 while the 500 sells for £4,799*. Like all Peugeot scooters, the Satelis has a 2-year manufacturer's warranty.
