PUIG Rear Hugger

I know the Pyramid hugger has been discussed but has anyone bought the PUIG offering yet?
I suspect it may be the same hugger to the Pyramid version but can anyone confirm this?


It looks a bit longer and seems a fairly cheap alternative to splashing out of the Ilmberger option:

I am thinking of getting one as my bike should hopefully be coming out of the house soon once the salt is gone.

Thanks for posting. Did Puig release this recently? I don't recall seeing its month ago when I was scoring Puig's websites.

It looks like the crisper moulding, mounting tape and pre-drilled hole will make for a more precise installation and fit than the current Pyramid product.

So, lemme get this straight.

I twist this little tube, it gets loud, I go forward really fast and it makes me smile...is that how it all works?

Man, is it the forum or my computer (iMac) that has a problematic spell correction feature?

I loathe poor grammar. Involuntary poor grammar puts me on the verge of Old Testament wailing, tearing of beards and robes.

I don't have a beard nor wear robes so perhaps I'll just wail although that seems inadequate for the aggravation of erroneous auto-correction.

OK, so back to huggers....

And this is from a man that tried, and no doubt will continue to try to convert his bike to a 1200cc beast.
But strangely I understand exactly what you mean.
Also I would convert mine if I could, (don't tell anyone that's just between us).

It only appeared in the last week but I am unsure if it is actually any different?


I'd rather not drill the rear hugger but I'd imagine they are still cheaper to buy than the Ilmberger hugger and I'd rather keep the muck off the shock if I can.


I may have to take the plunge and buy one.....

I will almost certainly fit one and I have no compunction about drilling holes in the OEM hugger, a new one only costs £17.30.
