The Puch engine is a sweetheart! It uses dual Solex 36-NDIX two-barrel carbs. These carbs were often found on some of the earliest VW air-cooled two-barrel conversions back in the ’70s. It’s a five-bolt-main aluminum unit that cranks out 87 hp with peak torque at 2,000 rpm. You need to rev it to get the full suds out of it, but it doesn’t feel too “peaky.” For its displacement, it has a broad torque band. Toward the end of first-gen production, a larger 2.7L fuel-injected engine was introduced making 102 hp.
