1987-2005 “Puch” made by Piaggio, Manet, Hero
After over 100 years, Steyr Daimler Puch went out of business. The moped making equipment was sold to three different countries. First Piaggio in Italy produced the Puch Super Maxi in the early 1990’s. Then Manet in Slovakia produced the Puch Korado in the late 1990’s. Then Hero in India produced the Hero Puch Automatic in the early 2000’s. These remake Puchs had many things the same, but also many things, especially out-sourced components, different from the original Puchs.
