The Peugeot City Star RS is the sportier version of the standard City Star and features a series of style upgrades that give it a more dynamic look.
The biggest sticking difference is represented by the low profile sports windscreen which is paired with a black and chrome grille. The front end is dominated by a twin halogen headlamp. The scooter rides on 13’’ rims which are wrapped in Michelin tyres.
Power comes from a liquid cooled 125cc engine which generates a maximum power of 15 hp. As far as efficiency is concerned the unit delivers a mileage of 80mpg. The engine is fueled by a 9-litre fuel tank and is paired with an automatic transmission. The stopping power is handled by a front and rear disc brakes (260 mm and 210 mm).
The scooter is priced at £3599 (4373 euro).

Peugeot’s compact maxi-scooter, the Citystar, will be available in the company’s special series RS trim for 2013.
With its low-profile tinted sports windscreen sitting above the black and chrome grille the Citystar has a purposeful appearance that is emphasised by the twin halogen 35W headlamps. Wheels, lower fork legs and passenger grab rail are all painted black, contrasting with the bodywork, in a choice of snow white or titanium.
Powered by a 15hp liquid cooled 125cc motor, the Citystar is responsive in traffic and capable on the open road, while fuel injection delivers excellent fuel economy (up to 80mpg). With its generous 9-litre fuel tank a range of more than 50 miles between refills is possible. Its 13’’ wheels are fitted with Michelin tyres for secure road holding andstability at speed, with a 260 mm brake disc at the front and 210 mm disc at the rear for controllable stopping power. A 90° turning radius makes the Citystar manoeuvrable in traffic and other tight spaces.
Despite its compact size, the Citystar offers maximum storage space, with a lockable compartment under the seat that can accommodate two helmets and a handy glove box with a 12V socket for charging devices while on the move.
