Lambretta scooters still have a large fan following in India, and there are several clubs with members dedicated towards the restoration and maintenance of the legendary machines. At its peak, in 1981, the company sold nearly 35,000 scooters.

Unfortunately demand dropped over the following years and finally in 1997, production stopped. Well, Lambretta is all set to return to the Indian market. In 2018, Lambretta's parent company Innocenti announced that the Lambretta brand would return to India.

Now, the company has showcased its flagship concept at the ongoing EICMA motorcycle show in Italy. It is called the G-325 and it can be instantly recognised as a Lambretta. Anyone who has seen a Lambretta scooter before will relate to this. It features the same iconic design lines while being modern.

It features the same beautiful retro headlamp design, shaped almost like its logo. But the headlamp is an LED unit and it even has LED DRLs. All lights on the concept are lit by LEDs. The same logic has been applied to the rest of the scooter too.

On the outside, it features classic retro design with long flowing curves and it even has the iconic side panels. However, there is no longer a well-oiled two-stroke engine underneath it. It is powered by a 325cc, four-stroke engine. More details of the engine will be announced shortly.

Lambretta also announced the launch of the G-Special which is its upcoming electric scooter. The Lambretta G-Special will be launched at the 2020 Indian Auto Expo. There are no details regarding the output of the electric motor or the battery capacity or range yet.

Since the scooter will be positioned at a premium, the range and performance too can be expected to remain premium. At EICMA, Lambretta stressed upon its focus on electric vehicles as well as hydrogen-powered scooters and motorcycles. The company also announced that it would be setting up an assembly plan near Mumbai.
