In October 2014 M & M acquired a 51% controlling shares in Peugeot motorcycles. It was only recently that they launched two brand new models, the Peugeot P2 Roadster and the Peugeot P2X Café Racer during the Paris Motor show.
After the 70 year hiatus Peugeot motorcycle comes back in full force under the guiding hand of Mahindra and Mahindra. The 300cc café racer comes with a robust and aggressive riding posture; it is a modern-retro café racer.
The 125cc roadster on the other hand is a modern-classic street bike with oval headlights, teardrop shaped fuel tank, raised handlebars and short front fender similar to the café racer.
Both bikes come powered by a single cylinder, liquid cooled DOHC motor, upside-down forks. Both have twin shock absorbers at the rear but where the café racer has Y-spoke alloy wheels, the roadster has wire spoke wheels. Their base model happens to be the Mahindra Mojo. Also both of the bikes feature front and rear ABS and a five inch color dashboard complete with i-Connect Bluetooth for smartphone pairing and GPS.
The roadster comes with a look similar to the Peugeot 515 of the 1930’s while the café racer comes in Peugeot sports colors with additional clip-on bars, forged wheels and a single seat.
Now M&M is set to acquire 100% stakes in Peugeot Motorcycles to get full ownership. The acquisiton will bring seven new products as an output planned between 2019 and 2021
