It isn’t a secret anymore that Mahindra bought a 51% stake in Peugeot Two wheelers very recently. As a result, they decided to show off some of their newly acquired French assets at the Auto Expo 2016. First up, a retro themed scooter called ‘Django’ that stood there and looked like Red velvet.
Powered by a carbeureted 124.6cc engine that makes 10.4 PS of power, the Django offers a mix of retro and modern in a single package. White walled tyres, classic styling and hints of chrome try and take you back in time, while modern elements like an analog-digital instrument cluster, LED tail light and a U-shaped, luminous design feature on the front apron keep in touch with the present.
Some standard features include a storage compartment that can fit a full size helmet, flat footboard, dual compartment lockable glove-box with 12V power socket, modern LED lighting (front and rear indicators, rear light) and signature lighting in the front grille, semi-digital dashboard, black dual seat, two-tone bodywork, milky White wheel rims, special painted rear-view mirrors with chrome surround, Fly screen and an optional chrome luggage rack. Looks classy, but no details were leaked if it will ever go against the Vespa in India.
