In 1936 the Puch model range of the 250 class comprised the 250 E, 250 L and 250 R. The 250 R was only built 3.751 units and had a remarkable power of 7.5 hp. The sporty machine runs fine and has still its original brass type plate.

Puch’s company became successful through innovation and quality handicraft, rapidly expanding over time. It soon began producing motorcycles and mopeds.


The main production plant, later called Einser-Werk, was constructed in the south of Graz, in the district of Puntigam. Production of engines was started in 1901 and cars followed in 1904. In 1906 the production of the two-cylinder Puch Voiturette began and in 1909 a Puch car broke the world high-speed record with 130.4 km/h./ classic-motorcycle.com
