If you can get past the daft name, the Peugeot Tweet 125 is a fantastic little scooter. There’s nothing new or revolutionary about it, but it’s fun to ride and offers everything you need to beat the traffic on your commute at a bargain price.
The Tweet 125’s light weight makes it ridiculously easy to throw around and a joy to u-turn. It’s not quite as stable at top speed, but in it’s element on city streets it makes light work of filtering. 16” wheel help to keep the Tweet composed over bumps and potholes.
The Tweet is powered by an air-cooled 125cc engine that makes 8.5bhp – fairly modest for a 125. But it makes up for it with low weight – it’s only 106kg, which is much lighter than a lot of 125cc scooters and even on par with some 50cc scoots. As a result it feels fairly nippy, even compared to Peugeot’s own 12.5bhp LXR125.
