The iconic Italian scooter brand Lambretta celebrated its 70th anniversary in 2017. To commemorate the occasion, the company introduced the V Special models. Now, CarandBike reports that Lambretta is working on a new electric scooter which will be unveiled in 2018.
The report also states that Lambretta will launch three new models in Australia which will be followed by the new electric scooter. The Lambretta V Special is available in three variants: V50, V125 and V200. In 2019, Lambretta is also expected to launch a 400cc scooter.
The Lambretta V Special models have been designed by Austrian design firm KISKA, which also designs new KTM bikes and the Husqvarna Svartpilen and Vitpilen. The Lambretta V Special features the signature classic design with a blend of the modern touch.
The Lambretta V Special models feature steel body, fixed front fender and the iconic Lambretta badging. The Lambretta V Special models are available with three engine options: a 50cc, 125cc and 200cc. The company is also planning to launch the Lambretta GP and SX classic scooters.
The Lambretta V Special models are equipped with a host of premium features such as LED headlamp, tail lamp and turn indicators, 220mm disc brake at the front, 12-volt charging socket and telescopic forks. The 200cc variant also gets the safety net of Bosch ABS.
In India, Lambretta was assembling its scooters between the 1950s and 1990s. The scooters were assembled under the licence of Automobile Products of India (API) and then Scooters India Limited (SIL). Later, due to a financial crisis, Lambretta disappeared from the global market.
