Peugeot V-Clic 50 Overall Rating
The V-Clic 50 is exactly how it looks – a basic, no frills moped that will get you about town if you’re 16. It’s a bargain, but if you’re a teenager it’s unlikely to impress any of your mates outside the chip shop and anyone over 17 should opt for a 125.
Ride Quality & Brakes
4 out of 5
The light weight V-Clic 50 handles perfectly adequately for a scooter that’s all about getting from A to B. Its 79kg weight makes it very easy to live with – practically anyone could hoist it on and off the centre stand with ease and u-turns are effortless, but the brakes are weak.
The 4-stroke 50cc engine in the V-Clic is only good for a top speed of about 30mph and it takes it’s time getting there. But it’s unfair to criticise a moped engine for being a bit slow – the point is to be reliable and deliver good fuel economy. The V-Clic’s motor is a proven unit and they claim it gives anywhere from 70-100mpg.
Build Quality & Reliability
3 out of 5
The V-Clic looks a little budget all over, but build quality is better than a lot of the similarly-priced competition.
Insurance, running costs & value
The styling is starting to look a little dated, but what do you expect for £999? That’s a bargain considering you get a 2-year warranty and the reassurance of a big brand badge on the front. Find a scooter for sale.
There’s an underseat storage bay but it’s relatively small and couldn’t take my full-face helmet. There’s an open non-lockable glove box under the bars and a shopping hook, plus a matching rack and 32-litre top box are available as extras. Compare and buy parts for the V-Clic in the MCN Shop.
