The French firm is ready to challenge some stiff maxi-scooter competition
Peugeot’s XP400 Allure and GT are the latest scoots to get in on the adventure act – with rugged styling (and even off-road tyres for the GT) similar to Honda’s ADV350 and Kymco’s DTX360 320.

The biggest scooters in Peugeot’s range, they’re powered by a 400cc single-cylinder engine which kicks out a respectable 36.7bhp and 28lb-ft of torque. They’re also both equipped with a motorcycle-style 17-inch front wheel and a 15-inch rear (which are wire-spoked numbers on the GT). Suspension comes in the form of some chunky upside-down 41mm front forks and a combined hydraulic rear spring. Stopping is looked after by a pair of 295mm discs up front, while a single 240mm disc takes care of things at the rear. There’s also dual-channel ABS and traction control thrown in. Add a colour TFT dash (with full connectivity), LED lights all round, a USB port and under-seat storage (to stash a full-face helmet), and Peugeot could be onto a winner.
Coming in at £7249 for the XP400 Allure and £7349 for the XP400 GT, they’re bang on the money when compared to the competition – and based on our previous experience of Peugeot scooters, they will be well worth a closer look.
