THE RS CIGAR EXHAUST
Although I do love the looks of the standard Puch Maxi exhaust, I do have to admit that the performance of the standard exhaust isn’t the best. I have heard many things about the RS Cigar exhaust and before buying it , I decided to ask the experiences of some (30) of our Instagram followers. Here you can find my findings.

The Sound Of The RS Cigar Exhaust:
Almost all owner agreed that the sound is better than the standard exhaust.
First of all the exhaust is not that loud (a little louder than the original) which might be better when driving from home to work / school everyday. Secondly, when running idle, the exhaust has a deeper sound than the original exhaust.
It is difficult to explain the sound in words, that’s why we have asked several owners to send us a movie of the sound. Pop in your headset and enjoy the sound of the RS Cigar exhaust.
The Performance Of The RS Cigar Exhaust
The findings about the performance are clear: the performance of the RS cigar exhaust is in general better than the original exhaust, but you should not expect ‘huge results’.
In most cases people experienced that their Puch Maxi goes between 7 and 15 km/h faster compared to the original exhaust. The exhaust is both a good match for standard engines as well as the faster, tuned engines (50 and 70ccm).
Their is not a very big difference in the acceleration when running in low RPM. However, when running in higher RPM your Puch Maxi accelerates faster than with the original exhaust.
The looks Of The RS Cigar Exhaust
The sound is good, the performance is good, but how about the looks? If you love chrome, you’ll love this exhaust and if you love the standard exhaust, you will also love this exhaust. It has a clean, shiny and classy look. So if you ask me, it’s a good fit for any Puch moped.
A Minus Of The RS Cigar
Important to know before buying the RS Cigar exhaust is that you will need to have the right clamp to install the exhaust. The standard clamp is not always the perfect match. What clamp do you need? A bigger one, take the 28mm clamp.
A second minus is that this exhaust suffers leaks quiet easily.
Both issues are very easy to solve. Buy the right clamp and for the second one you can use some exhaust paste to fill any leakages.

» The experience of Robert
I think it’s looking pretty good and it’s pretty quiet and inconspicuous even if you got a bigger cylinder. But I have to say that the power of this thing is not huge because it has no resonance body. You have to buy it in combination with another bigger and better clamp. But I do like the RS Cigar Exhaust!
» The Experience of Jack
Good sound but not that much power compared to a resonance exhaust. With this exhaust my maxi goes about 55 km/h with a 50ccm and 15mm carb. With a 70ccm it goes between 65 and 75 km/h.

I have used the RS Cigar exhaust. It has a cool sound and with the RS cigar exhaust my Puch X30 Turbo (with z50 engine) was 15km/h faster than before.
» The Experience of Johan
I have it on my Puch with an original 4port 50cc with 15mm bing original. Runs 73 km/h now with jet 62 and 60km range on 2.5 liters. I give it a 9/10 because it doesn’t have a fix exhaust curve from the exhaust to the cylinder. The standard clamp is to weak and you need to modify it a bit.
