More about the Puch Cobra (US Model)

Puch had been producing a small European shifter motorcycle model for years that was called a Cobra but it was never exported to the US for sale. The following is about the Puch Cobra moped that was first exported specifically for the US market in 1984. They have no similarities to each other than the manufacturer and the model name.

In 1984 the Puch Cobra moped was introduced as a replacement for the Magnum models in the US. It is somewhat shorter in height and also lighter than its predecessor.  It used a combination of parts from different Maxi models and a Kromag tube frame very similar to the JC Penney Pinto but with some modifications including a top support bar. The lower engine and chain side covers are the same as the Magnum XK but the upper side covers are of a new design.  The tank and seat were also redesigned and specific to this new model. The engine chosen for this first year model was the reliable and efficient Puch E50. It was a 2 stroke 50cc single speed automatic engine that had some new improvements done to it like a heavier duty clutch, improved crankshaft and connecting rod, updated transmission gear and a redesigned lighting circuit. (Later year models would include ZA50 2 speed models). The front fork assembly and rear swing arm are identical to the Maxi models and the front stainless fender from a Maxi Sport. The rear rack assembly design was repurposed from a Pinto.
