My sister Brought a 2003 model as a run around for £400.. Unfortunately she was ripped off as the seller had bodged the bike to work for a short period. Problems with the auto choke and starter (cleaned carb fixed this) and crankshaft starter tooth. She got fed up and didn't want to wait days for parts to arrive. She got a new model instead. Paid £100 for it. £20 quid on parts. A year and a half later. put 3,000 miles on it last summer!!! and worked flawlessly in the winter on the... (read more)

Bought this scooter for my wife a year ago and it's absolutely terrible for ONE SIMPLE REASON: The starter Bought new battery, and fully drained it. Kicked it like hell it simply doesn't start. It's always been a constant problem. Winter are worse but now is summer and still not working. I have a couple of mates who bought it as well and they have the same problem. Sometime taking 20 minutes kicking before it starts when you're lucky. Stay away from this 'merde' however cheap you get can it. (read more)

I absolutely love my Vivacity. I've been using it for getting around town for 2 months now and I can't understand how I ever managed without it! I don't have much experience of scooters (a few rentals on holiday in Spain prior to this), but I would say that it's pretty nippy and very very comfy. There's bags of room under the seat too which will take my whole weekly shop with room for more. I'm sure that there probably better/quicker bikes out there, but for a novice like me this is the...

had new moped for two months and the exhaust blow.took 5 days to get new part,got it fitted and within a fortnight it went again,this time they tied it with a plastic tie and it is still holding at the moment.Next thing that went was the plastic below where you put your feet, started to crack.Got in touch with Peugeot in Madrid and they were totally unhelpful saying it was my fault,which I know that it was not as I am of the older generation .Would not recommend this bike at all.

I have recently bought a Vivacity and absolutely love it.
I don't have my CBT yet and am currently just practicing on it.
it's a great little bike, cheap to fill, goes for miles and isn't as loud as other scooters i've heard.
I payed £325 for mine and would definately reccommend it to family and friends.
I am only 5 foot 2 and feel really comfortable on the scooter although i do have to get off the seat to move the bike backwards (lol).
Other than that perfect first scooter. (read more)

stay away from this 2 stroke! have been riding these scooters for over 6 months and have already gone through three - soon to be 4 as the scooter is leaking fuel all over the place due to cheap faulty parts.
when it works it is good, clocking 37-40mph on a flat straight, the only problem is that it hardly ever works as it generally spends more time getting fixed than on the road which isnt good as i commute daily.
found out they are actually built under license in china? explains cheap... (read more)

I bought a vivacity 50cc because I thought it would savce me money. It did on the insurance, just £90 a year fully comp from Express Insurance.
However the bike has spent more time in the garage than out on the road. I have had it for 2 months and in that time ridden it just 5 hours before it breaks down again and needs to be taken back to the garage.
The seat height is rather high too, especially if oyu are 5ft 5" like me lol.
Personally I would say stay clear of these 2 stroke monsters.... (read more)

I brought my Vivacity about one month ago and all signs are good :) Ive had no problems and the performance of the bike is very good. I say this because my bike is just d-restricted and reaches 50mph. also another plus point is miles to the gallon does about 60-80 miles and only cost £4 a full tank.
Overall a very good first time moped and i would adversive anyone to get one (read more)

the moped only breaks down in the rain because the rear wheel doesnt have a mudgard to stop the water getting onto the spark plug. to solve this i got a milk carton and gut it in half and then cable tied it on to the bikes spark plug sprayed it with wd40 and then it works fine, i can garentee that this wil work and then if not u might need a new HT lead becuase it might have a whole in it and as soon as water gets init it cuts out then engine. hope this is god enough info for u ..

The bike at first doesn't seem very good but it actually has a lot of potential. When i derestricted it it ran at about 45-49mph...I know people who had to put sports parts on their bikes to achieve those sorts of speeds...now that I've put a sports exhaust 19 carb and mertakit sports variator it goes about 65-73mph and I'm thinking about putting in a 70cc cylinder.

I've had my 2001 Peugeot Vivacity for only 2 months but for 5 weeks of that it's been in the garage. I am aware some of the faults are due to it having been off-road for 2 years but others just occuring during use
1. Leaking fuel, wasn't leaking when I picked it up, but after first fill up petrol going everywhere, apparently carb/float/valve were screwed, so had to get them replaced.
2. Rattles... I can hear a really irrtating rattle when riding above and beyond the normal whine of a 50cc... (read more)

I have owned my Peugeot Vivacity compact 50 scooter for about a year now, and the first thing that springs to mind when I think of it is the nippiness of the thing. It will do 50 quite happily once de-restricted, although going against the wind or up even the slightest hill (I live in the fens so I know when the road is not level) will reduce the speed down to about 40.
The second thing that springs to mind is the strength of the scooter, although some panels feel a bit tacky.

My wife selected this Peugeot Vivacity 50 Scooter due to its good looks! Within 3 months it had to have a new carburettor and by Xmas 2004, it had been in and out of the dealers on several occasions to have fuel problems sorted out without any real success. The dealers were brilliant and have eventually replaced the carbs again, cleaned them out on several occasions but we are still experiencing problems now (Feb 05).... I would not reccommend this scooter to anyone else. (read more)

Only had the Peugeot Vivacity 50 scooter for four months, but no problems so far. I've been told that the electric start sometimes won't work in rain and cold, but I have had no problems as yet with this facility and the kick-start adds an extra solution should the electric start fail. Fuel consumption is minimal, and this machine gets me to and from work every day without fail (- darn). Nippy and stylish for a scooter and it's quick and easy to learn how to ride. (read more)

I bought my Peugeot Vivacity 50 Scooter 2 years ago and now HAVE to replace it. After having the bike stolen and recovered, I discovered that the parts are very expensive to replace. Bodywork is soo expensive that only a few panels costs more than the entire bike to replace. Now after only moderate use, I'm having to buy a new bike as it's not worth paying to replace worn-out parts as they are so expensive and can take a while to get hold of (although that might be down to my dealer).
