Peugeot Motocycles - a new(ish) name, a new badge, a new start?

Peugeot Motocycles shows its new logo, distinguishing itself as not limited to just scooters. Is the 125cc and 300cc P2X on the way?

PEUGEOT may be well known on two wheels for their scooter range, but a little while back they decided to ditch the ‘Scooters’ from their name and go for ‘Motocycles’ instead. 

Interestingly, searching Peugeot motocycles on a popular search engine will show two websites at the top, the first reading ‘Peugeot Motocycles - the oldest manufacturer of scooters’ with a dedicated website, the second being ‘Peugeot Scooters’ with another dedicated site.

Weirder still, the Peugeot Motocycles website has the old ‘prancing lion’ logo, whilst the Peugeot Scooters site has the new ‘Peugeot Motocycles’ logo. Looking at the listed range on the site, and there are no motorcycles (yet). Now, I understand the need to distinguish from the Peugeot cars brand, but it seems like there is a lot going on here. 

What's in store for Peugeot Motocycles?

Unless the P2X is on the way? A concept ‘motocycle’ first seen at the Paris Motor show in 2018, with both a 125cc and 300cc version.

I’ve got to admit, for a smaller capacity bike, the P2X really does look impressive, and an option I’m sure plenty of CBT, A1 and A2 riders would be keeping an eye on if the tyres ever hit the road. 

Perhaps an electric motor version is on the way, instead. Definitely an option for a motocycle/scooter company that’s been around since 1810, and making two-wheeled motor-cycles since 1898 (when they literally stuck a motor on a cycle, see what I did there). 

We’ll keep an eye out, but the new logo looks really cutting edge and modern, and I like it.
