In addition to the classic French design style, the color is individual. Peugeot Django 125 also has the ability to operate smoothly but lacks the “loading” in each screw operation.
Leading the way to bring Peugeot back to the Vietnamese motorbike market, Django 125 brought new wind into the high-end scooter segment, which still has few options. With the differences in technology design and operational ability, whether this car can conquer Vietnamese consumers to help find the “golden past” for Peugeot motorcycle brand
Finding the glory …
Flip back to the memory page, two-wheeled Peugeot cars were the dream of many Vietnamese people. In the 1960s and 1970s, Peugeot bicycles and motorcycles represented wealth and were only for those who were truly “stylish”. Even, it becomes the standard of choice for lovers of old Hanoi girls, by way of paraphrasing words: “One love you have Sen-lady (Sen-kô wristwatch), you two love Po. – Goldfish (gold-colored Peugeot bikes)! “
However, when the economy developed Peugeot bicycles and motorcycles in Vietnam gradually went into the past. Peugeot cars are no longer as popular as they used to be, but gradually go into the collections of those who want to hold on to the little bit of time.

Until October 2016, after nearly 60 years, the Peugeot motorcycle brand officially returned to Vietnam. French car brand offers a long-term plan, when building a production plant in the South. In it, Django 125 was the first model to be assembled with a localization rate of 15%.
“French” makes a difference
Inspired by the S55 and legendary S57 models, Peugeot Django 125 is improved to become a symbol of liberal and French elegance. It is the combination of classic lines, the modern style of fashion … that gives Django 125 different from the same segment.

In addition to the rounded, elongated design with highlights such as round headlights, the “lion” logo surrounded by dimming LED lights, LED taillights on both sides of the front … Django 125 also stands out on the street. With a unique color scheme, the chrome contour runs along the body.
A special feature on Django 125 is how to design a saddle to separate into two separate parts for the driver and the person behind the car, in the style of classic scooter models. The seat is wide, the foot floor is flat with a large area and the way of designing the steering wheel creates a comfortable sitting posture, suitable for the Vietnamese physique. The compact body design with a quiet height of 770 mm makes it easy to get on and off. The rear saddle is fixed while the previous saddle can be closed by turning the key backwards. This design somewhat limits the storage space, but expanding in depth helps users to fit 2 first half helmets and some other personal items.
Similar to other high-end scooters, Django 125 also takes advantage of the back of the camisole to arrange additional storage, integrated fuel tank cover, phone holder slot and 12 volt charging port. However, this detail is a bit low, causing the driver to experience some inconvenience when operating.
The difference of Django 125 is also reflected in the design of the car keys, when using chrome-plated details surrounding the pretty, sophisticated lion logo. Unfortunately, the key has not been integrated into the car location function, which partly makes the user somewhat inconvenient in locating the vehicle when sending the car.

Smooth, but need more “loading”
In driving position, Django 125 creates a comfortable sitting posture. The handle provides a very smooth driving feel, but with a large diameter, along with a function button such as turn signal lights, headlights, horns, start buttons … set quite far, making the operation less convenient. very much.
Turn on the key, the function lights on the watch display glowing. The combination of electronic screen and analog clock with traditional style not only creates luxury but also helps the driver easily observe and cover the operation information of the vehicle.
Django 125 is equipped with 124.6cc 1 cylinder engine block, 4 periods of 2 Fi electronic fuel injection valves. This engine delivers a capacity of 10.2 horsepower at 8,500 rpm that is equivalent to the new 125 engine installed by Piaggio on the Vespa LX iGet model. Compared to competitors, the sound through the exhaust system sounds quite loud. Peugeot thinks that this is a unique feature of the Django 125. However, according to those who have been driving Django 125, this is the weakness that needs to be improved, especially in the context of the Vietnamese people increasingly improving the smoothness on one. High-class scooters.

At the accelerator, the sound that came out from the exhaust pipe was quite loud. However, when the car has created the momentum, the machine gradually decreases and is quietest at the speed range of 40-50 km / hour. The sturdy chassis incorporates a front hydraulic damping system and a single fork, damping rear bumper with thick tires, helping Django 125 adapt well to changing from the road surface. After each throttle, Django 125 operates smoothly, vibration is significantly reduced. The compactness should be shown better when going 2 people.

Django 125 is lacking in smoothness, but it lacks “catch”. The reaction engine is not really sensitive to the throttle screw, making the car appear quite “drowsy” when accelerating. The driver has a feeling of inadequacy when screwing the scooter to reach 70 speed and 80 km / hour. This is partly due to the reaction of the engine, the scooter but must admit that the body weight is up to 129 kg (15 kg heavier than the Vespa LX iGet), making Django 125 lacking in splendor necessary when operating. In return, when creating momentum Django 125 creates quite good stability.
The smoothness of the car is also reflected in the acceleration and deceleration operations. It is difficult to feel the vibration of the car when going to the station, besides the use of SBC combined braking system (Synchro Braking Control) with front / rear disc brakes has the effect of evenly distributing brake force to 2 wheels to help The car did not get jerky.
Advantages: New design makes a difference, personality. Many colors to choose from. Smooth, smooth and safe operation. Equipped with facilities to meet basic needs of users. Suitable for many customers, especially women.
Disadvantages: Some details (steering wheel, control button …) arranged have not created the comfort and comfort for the driver. Lack of sensitivity when operating, sounds quite loud in the first throttle.
