Lambretta V-Special – The Iconic Scooter is Back!

Lambretta V-Special – The Iconic Scooter is Back!

2017 Lambretta V-Special was unveiled a few days back in Italy. The entry of this vintage brand into the current century was marked with an all-new product during the Lambretta 70th Anniversary Rally. They have promised three different models with 50, 125 and 200 monikers.

The brand selected 90 guests from 18 countries that included journalist, Lambretta community members and distributors. The event was very important as if majority of these 90 would have criticized the scooter, all of the effort would have been in vain.


The scooter has been designed in collaboration with KISKA, the brand that designs KTM and Husqvarna bikes. The frame was made by Taiwan based SYM and comes into the category of semi-monoque unit with 1.2 mm thick steel sections.

All of the engine options are Euro 4 compliant and could possibly surprise unaware fans during its marketing period. The die hard fans that need the old 2-stroke engines and 4-speed gearbox may not feels as happy as the engine options would be 4-stroke and gearbox on offer is automatic presently.


The future is even more interesting as Lambretta will soon be offering an electric version of the same, rivaling none other than the scooter giant Vespa around the world. The design on V-Special is very basic but true to the terms of the brand.

You can see modern inputs through sharp edges while vintage scooters were a bit curvy in design. Both the ends carry alloy wheels while front uses telescopic forks as well as disc brake for suspension and braking respectively. The international availability of the V-Special is yet to be announced.
