Summary:

Reliable, easy to handle, not the best looking, but very safe to ride

Faults:

I bought it off of a friend who treated it unfairly. It needed a new brake drum, new rear wheel, fixings for the back end, right front indicator and a new battery, as the old one wasn't holding its charge. I fixed it up earlier this year (2012) and now it runs like a dream and comes with no central stand. No idea what happened to it, but still have the side stand.

General Comments:

Starts up in one, very easy to take off. Acceleration is very good. Handles perfectly for my riding style (fast). The braking is also excellent.

I can't really say any bad things about this scooter, apart from where the light controls are located, but apart from that, it is spot on.

Summary:

As suitable for commuter use as 500 km a day trips

Faults:

Only voltage regulator, exhaust pipe/catalyst and thermal switch have had to be replaced during the ten years I've owned this great scooter.

General Comments:

Very stable to ride at all speeds.

Unbelievably large cargo space under the seat.

Rear brake (drum) is quite inefficient.

Summary:

Quiet, comfortable, economical, but restricted

General Comments:

A quiet engine that can commute comfortably with two passengers and some luggage.

Stable engine temperature, whatever the ambient temperature or the load.

Economical; about 3lt/100Km.

A lot of space under the seat.

Good quality of all the plastics, even though it is 6 years old.

Fair handling for a scooter, but very light steering with no information, and unstable when cornering at high speeds.

When you open the seat, you see two caps; one is for the gas and the other is for the oil. Even though is not a 2 stroke, it burns oil. That's why Peugeot engineers place the oil filler point under the seat.

The gas warning light flashes very quickly at about the half of the tank used.

Tall, especially the passenger's seat.

Poor headlight.

The horn is where all the other bikes have the signal button, and vice versa. That needs some time to get used to.

Central stand is very difficult to manipulate.

Very small wheels make it easy to fall when braking in a corner, but that is a common thing in scooters.

RECOMMENDED ONLY IN CITY BOUNDARIES AND SMALL SPEEDS.

Previous motorcyclePeugeot Speedfight 100

Summary:

A good, fun, quick and reliable allrounder

Faults:

None, "touch-wood".

A great commuter scooter. I was tossing between a Vespa ET4 or Peugeot Elyseo 125. Both have roughly the same size engine displacement. The Elyseo won hands down. Blows the ET4 away for both handling and performance.

In Australia, scooters are only just becoming popular and dealer servicing & prices are questionable.

General Comments:

Seat height is bit too high.

Economical. Around 300kms on a tank of petrol!
