Based on Mahindra Mojo, Peugeot P2X twins to be seen in India in a while
The Indian bike manufacturer Mahindra and Mahindra is trying hard to revive its position in the Indian bike market. After announcement of BSA and JAWA, Peugeot Motorcycles comes back to India under Mahindra’s platform. The France based bike manufacturer Peugeot showcased P2X twins i.e. the P2X Roadster and P2X Cafe-Racer at on-going Paris Motor Show 2018.
Mahindra and Mahindra own the French brand Peugeot and has made 2 new motorcycles based on its on-going capable bike Mahindra Mojo. The Peugeot P2X twins nowhere look similar to Mojo though. The company has revealed only the concept by-far. Hence the bikes will not be seen on production line anytime soon. Although, Mahindra Mojo is a capable bike but it failed to mark its presence in the Indian bike market because of various reasons including styling.
However, the bikes are a couple of years away to hit the roads; the bike will be powered by the same 300cc DOHC super smooth engine as of Mojo. The engine might get some alterations due to the strict pollution emissions norms, Governments are following these days.
The P2X Roadster gets a retro-modern styling that can turn heads on the roads nonchalantly. While the P2X Cafe Racer offers an aggressive posture with lowered handlebars and re-positioned foot pegs. While the cosmetics remain same on both including the LED headlight and GPS enabled TFT console.
In the Indian bike market, the P2X twins will face-off with the Duke 390 based Husqvarna, which are expected to be launched much before the Peugeots.
