Manet Korado Moped

Anyone know how I can determine what year my Manet Korado Moped was made?

Re: Manet Korado Moped

look at the vin plate behind the headlight

Re: Manet Korado Moped

by the way those are sweet peds and that kick start is kinda rare

Re: Manet Korado Moped

Thanks, I didn't know where it could be. Appreciate the help.

Re: Manet Korado Moped

I took a picture of my vin plate, can you read the manufacture date in the vin number? Looks like U7V216 023 XV 027917, Does this mean 02 (Feb) 79 (1979) 17 (17th day). I attached a picture. Thanks for looking.


Re: Manet Korado Moped

i think 91 is more likely the year.

Re: Manet Korado Moped

Thanks again

Re: Manet Korado Moped

i think it's a 1996, I have the same one..

Re: Manet Korado Moped

i have a 96 also and i thought thet were all mid to later 90s but i'm just reading the vin numbers.

Re: Manet Korado Moped

jawa made a better puch than puch did

Re: Manet Korado Moped

jawa=manet=made the puch korado=hahaha

in all seriousness, manet is jawa essentially, and they made the last few years of puch, including the infamous korado, which has all those cool features like sealed bearings, kickstart, larger ports, cdi, etc

So, yeah quit knocking my jawas :)

Re: Manet Korado Moped

Piaggio owned puch, and manet got Piaggios help building the korado. This how an awesome puch engine ended up on these bikes.

Re: Manet Korado Moped

When I saw Piaggio owned Puch I mean the moped division of course, not the whole company.

Re: Manet Korado Moped

aww ok good info to know

Re: Manet Korado Moped

Thanks guys, but I'm still not sure what year mine is? It has Piaggio on one of the tags. Does that tell us when it was made? And I know it is a Manet Korado.

Manet Korado Moped - engine number + age

Rob Harrington /

I have just bought what I was told is a virtually unused (13km travelled) late '90s Korado. The VIN appears to be: U7V 216012 JV 026805. If the last 6 digits indicate the date of manufacture, that would be either 1968 (definitely incorrect) or 2005 - equally unlikely.

I am unable to find the engine number - is anybody able to help?

Parts are still available new from the Czech Republic - catalog(ue) attached.

Re: Manet Korado Moped

man Id love to have a kickstarter on either one of mine.

Was puch manufacturing the korado alongside manet or the exact same thing at different times? I have a 95 puch korado and a 98 manet korado.

edit: eff this thread is old, good info on the catalog though (edited)

Re: Manet Korado Moped

Piaggio did attempt to sell a few korados under the puch name, as well as an updated maxi model but from what I've heard they were fairly unsuccessful due to being somewhat overpriced. (edited)
