After an initial tease campaign earlier in the year, Peugeot has officially revealed the production version of its XP400 scooter at EICMA 2022. This is an outdoorsy type that is taking on the likes of Honda’s X-ADV machine. The XP400 looks like it might be ready to take to gravel roads and possibly further afield for the truly adventurous.
The maxiscooter has been released in two variants, one more road oriented, the Allure, and the other with more of an off-road focus, the GT. Both variants are much the same otherwise, with dual-purpose rubber, and are differentiated by their wheels, alloys for the Allure, and tubeless wire-spoke wheels for the GT version. These model names align nicely with four-wheeled Peugeots.
The XP400 is powered by a 400cc liquid-cooled fuel-injected single that meets EU5 emissions standards and produces a claimed 37hp (28kW) and 38Nm of torque at 5400rpm, putting it on an even keel with maxiscooters for sheer output.
The superscoot utilises 17-inch front and 15-inch rear wheels, large by scooter standards. GT includes crashguards at the sides of the fairings, while both have an adjustable windshield, twin headlights and hand guards. Weighing in at a solid 231kg, they feature inverted forks with 140mm of suspension travel, and a horizontally mounted rear monoshock. Serious radial-mount twin disc brakes up front and a single rear disc with dual-channel ABS are standard.
Other features include a large five-inch colour TFT screen, a USB charging port, and a large storage compartment under the seat. The XP 400 is scheduled for release in 2023 and will be green in Allure road trim, while the GT version will come in gray and white.
Expect them both here sometime next year.
