Peugeot relaunches in Europe In Europe, everyone knows Peugeot as a brand of scooters and mopeds as well as cars. But since 2015, 51% of the operation has been owned by the Mahindra Group, one of India’s largest vehicle manufacturers. Mahindra already owns the BSA and Jawa brands, and has just signalled Peugeot’s return to the motorcycle market after an absence of 70 years. Two urban-oriented 300cc machines were unveiled at the Paris Motor Show this week: the P2x Cafe Racer and the P2x Roadster (with the blue tank). The two Peugeots are potential competitors to the smaller KTM Dukes, the BMW G310R, and the Honda CB300R. They’re aimed at the booming sub-400 cc European market, are slated to go on sale in 2020, and we reckon they’ll sell like gâteaux chauds.
