Peugeot have given their Metropolis three-wheel scooter a major makeover for 2017, maintaining its reputation as the most technically advanced in its class, while retaining its streamlined styling and striking looks. This A2 category motorcycle can be ridden on a car licence by drivers who passed their test before 19 January 2013 and is packed with innovations - Dual Tilting front wheels, Tyre Pressure Management System, smart-key ignition, electronic parking brake and adjustable screen. Updates include a new low-friction PowerMotion engine, larger front wheels, re-engineered chassis and suspension, Traction Control, ABS and an emergency braking warning system.
Developed to meet tough Euro 4 emission standards, the 400cc LFE PowerMotion engine delivers class-leading performance, extra torque at low revs and improved fuel economy. Lightweight 13" front wheels with Michelin Citygrip tyres, redesigned suspension settings and a 50% stiffer frame give enhanced road-holding with lighter and more responsive steering. Stopping power and control is enhanced with a Continental ABS unit and Nissin callipers, reducing braking distances by 23% compared to the previous model. Riders can also activate SBC combined braking with the foot pedal, distributing braking effort evenly between front and rear brakes. For additional safety, the hazard warning lights are automatically triggered during emergency braking. At speeds over 50 km/h [31 mph], the system activates the hazard lights if the vehicle slows by more than 6 m/s [13 mph], and turns itself off when the deceleration is less than 2.5 m/s [5.5 mph].
Switchable TCS (Traction Control System) allows riders to choose the optimum setting for the conditions, with three settings to choose from; Urban, Sport and off.
For everyday comfort & convenience, there’s a USB socket in the glove box and an enlarged boot that can hold a full-face helmet. The Peugeot Metropolis also comes with two smart keys, that are electronically recognised within a radius of 1.5 metres.
