Mahindra Group’s Peugeot Motocycles (PMTC) has announced the India leg of its Paris-Saigon ride. Flagged off on August 29th, 2016 from Paris, Samuel Felice and Ambroise Prince are riding Peugeot Scooters from Paris (France) to Saigon (Vietnam) inspired by French Navy Petty Officers, Serge Gracium and Michel Vaslin, who travelled from Saigon to Paris with their Peugeot Scooters S57 in 1956. The journey 60 years later, follows the reverse route.
Peugeot Scooters supports the adventure and has given them two Django 125cc Scooters. Django, directly inspired by S57 was the obvious choice. Total Group, and Planet Ride support the ride.
The India leg starts on September 30th from Kolkata and passes North East India to exit from Moreh in Manipur. Vinod Sahay, Chief Executive Officer, Mahindra Two Wheelers Ltd says it’s great to be associated with this historical ride and that India is part of this passionate and challenging road trip.
Both friends will feed a virtual diary throughout their ride and share their adventure and experience. Both riders are directors, cameramen, and editors. They’ve wanted to do a road trip and research made them chance upon this amazing story.
