The EICMA 2017 saw the return of the most iconic scooter brand, Lambretta in the International market. The brand had announced its plan to enter the Indian market in December 2018, and now they have revealed that they will launch two new Lambretta scooters in India to give a tough competition to the very famous Piaggio Vespa lineup.

Lambretta will officially be unveiling their all-new electric scooter prototype at the Auto Expo in February 2020. The electric scooter is currently being designed in Italy, and no official details have surfaced on its initial specifications as of yet. We might have to wait for the official launch for getting hands on all the details.

In addition to the Electric Vehicle (EV), Lambretta is also planning on introducing their top end scooter variant, the Super Lambretta in India. According to the reports, the Super Lambretta will be one of the largest offerings from the brand till date and will get premium features with class-leading specifications.

For making their presence known in the Indian market, Lambretta has collaborated with the Bird Group and Lohia Auto for the development purposes. In addition to this, the brand’s parent company, Innocenti is also planning on setting up a production facility for the Lambretta scooters near Mumbai, India.

The production house will be a development and exports hub for the major neighbouring countries, though, no further details have surfaced on the same. With the launch of two new scooters in the Indian market, the brand is primarily focusing on getting a strong foothold in the country and work towards managing the declining interest in the scooter segment.

Lambretta has planned the Indian entry for Auto Expo 2020, showcasing their Electric prototype at the event. They have not yet mentioned the launch period for their first product but most probably, it will be the conventional scooter named Super Lambretta. The engine size has not yet been mentioned for the product but the brand has cleared the fact that it will be priced at a premium point. The Vespa scooters are known for their premium placement and it seems like Lambretta will leave them behind with bigger engine sizes and more luxury on offer than ever through their products.

New Lambretta Scooter

Lohia Auto and Bird Group will partner the efforts of Lambretta in India. They are looking for a suitable space to begin production in Maharashtra and once ready, the facility will serve as a base for local as well as export-spec production. If the brand plans to export these scooters to the European market, they can save a lot of money that goes into expensive production in Italy. The brand originated in 1947 and till date, carry the same design lines as seen on their vintage scooters. The brand presence of Lambretta varies by different markets and production in India can help them expand with much ease.

Lambretta V200 Special

Lambretta V200 is the most expected product from the brand, bringing 168.9cc engine for a total output of 12 HP and 12.5 Nm. The electric version will be coming later with more eco-friendly performance and no direct rival. The use of premium components on the Lambretta scooters make them highly desirable for buyers who need an ageless machine for their daily commute. The front tire on this scooter measures 110mm while the rear is a 120mm tire, wrapped on 12-inch aluminium alloy wheels. The 134 kg of weight makes the scooter a great option for city use.

The nostalgic brand name may bring any one of these, depending on the market scenario of India in 2019.

Yes, it will still take more than one year for the brand to enter global markets like India. Lambretta has named its scooters V50 Special, V125 Special and V200 Special respectively, clearly mentioning the engine size in its moniker. The brand was available in India from 1950’s to early 1990’s.

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.

Lambretta-V-Special-Scooter-1

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.

Lambretta-V-Special-Scooter-2

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.
