Peugeot’s special R-Cup edition of the new generation Speedfight 125 gets the distinctive paint scheme seen on track in the Peugeot 308 Racing Cup series
In Icy White, with bright red detail to emphasise its looks and performance, the Speedfight 125 R CUP draws on the model’s heritage as the definitive sports scooter.
At its heart is Peugeot’s all-new, liquid-cooled ‘SmartMotion’ engine, featuring SYNERJET single-indirect fuel injection and patented ACG [Alternative Current Generator] management.
ACG increases fuel economy by more than 5%, by disabling the flywheel during acceleration and deceleration phases, but only when the battery is sufficiently charged. It also makes more power available during the starting phase. The new engine makes the 4th generation Speedfight the most powerful to date, and the most economical – returning up to 134 mpg [2.1 litres/100 km].
Peugeot upgraded the scooter’s stopping power too, with a powerful 215mm front disc brake, and 190mm disc at the rear. Both are controlled with Synchro Braking Concept [SBC], which simultaneously activates the brakes when the left hand lever is applied. In case of emergency, applying the right-hand lever at the same time adds extra stopping power to the front brake.
Up to date with the latest tech, the Speedfight now has a digital dashboard, with backlit LCD display, and is even fitted with a USB socket, to keep the rider connected on the go. It is also prepared to accept an X-Grip smartphone holder.
The Speedfight 4 125 R-Cup is available from Peugeot dealers at an OTR price of £2699-* – including an unlimited mileage 24-month factory warranty.
