It's the same bike, just a bit of badge engineering like derbi and gilera used to do.

Yeah, but Peugeot doesn't even make a motorcycle, just scooters right?

Going to see a Schwinn bike next season...

Mahindra own a big chunk of Peugeot's bike business. I guess they do it for a bit of brand recognition

Mahindra for those unfamiliar, is one of the three biggest multi-billion dollar companies in India and are famous for the building of all kinds of vehicles. Interestingly - most of the Piaggio line were built in Pune India until about 10 years ago. After the Italians found cheaper labor elsewhere - the factory continued to flourish under the Bajaj label and made scooters that were indentical to those from Piaggio - tho without all the fancy colors and shiny bling options.

Didn't realize the Moto3 bike was made in Italy.

I think they are. They were Suter/Engines Engineering/then something else?
But pretty certain their race effort is in northern Italy.

Judging by performances I don't think Peugeot have realised they make bikes either.
Been very poor and I was hoping to see John McPhee doing well this year. A good haul of points on Sunday but his best chances are going to come in these circumstances. It's kind of similar to how he got his podium at Indy.
