Peugeot Motorcycles began producing the Vivacity 1+2 in 1998 and continued until 2008 when they redesigned the looks of the scooter. One of the most powerful 50cc standard scooters, in original specification, this version can reach 75 km/h (47 mph).[citation needed] Also this version came to compete with the Yamaha Bws 50cc. This version can reach 9000 rpm and has about 3.5 hp (2.6 kW).[citation needed] This model is one of the biggest successes from Peugeot because of its design and economical and powerful motor.
