(PMTC) part of the USD 17.8 billion Mahindra Group, announced the Indian leg of
the Paris-Saigon ride which is a recreation of the journey undertaken by Serge
Gracium and Michel Vaslin, two Petty Officers in the French Navy. The sailors
journeyed from Saigon to Paris on S57 Peugeot Scooters in 1956. Samuel Felice
and Ambroise Prince undertook the same journey but started from the opposite
direction on August 29, 2016. The duo will be riding through India on two
Django 125cc scooters, provided by PMTC.
The Django 125cc scooter
draws its inspiration directly from the S57 and thus became the obvious choice
for this fabled journey. The ride has also been supported by the Total Group
and Planet Ride. The India leg of the journey begins from Kolkata on September
30, 2016. The duo of Felice and Prince will ride across the North East and exit
the country from Moreh in Manipur. For the most part, the India leg will be
through mountains and unchartered forests which will be a test of rider skill
and grit of the Django scooters.
Sahay, Chief Executive Officer, Mahindra Two Wheelers
“This is the first time that Peugeot scooters will be seen on Indian roads. It
gives us immense pleasure to be associated with this historical ride and we
feel immensely proud that India will be a part of this passionate and
challenging road trip.”
