Alongside the trusty Vespa, Lambretta scooters can also be considered as Italian classics and are one of the most produced scooter makes of all time worldwide.
The Lambretta name is derived from the river 'Lambro', which flows close to the Innocenti factory in Milan. The main trade of the Innocenti company prior to scooter production was the production of steel tubes and pipes for numerous uses. During the second world war they were mainly concerned with the manufacture of artillery shell casings and vehicle parts.
The idea for the first Lambretta scooter design was hatched out by the firms owner - Ferdinando Innocenti - and an engineer by the name of Pierluigi Terre. Their common aim was to create an economical and affordable form of transport for the common population of post-war Italy.
At the beginning, various models were designed and built by the company Innocenti in Italy. Later on, licence vehicles such as the NSU in Germany or the Spanish Serveta came into being around the world. In 1971, production in Italy was stopped. Scooter India Ltd bought all production machinery in 1972 and continued to produce the DL models until the 1990s.
In 2011, the new Lambretta LN was unveiled by Motom Electronics Group at the Italian EICMA trade fair. It was introduced into the market in 2012 with 125cc/150cc engines.
Two years ago in 2014, the British manufacturer Scomadi presented a modern version of the Lambretta called the 'Scomadi TL' at the Cologne two-wheeler congress 'Intermot 2014'. These modern scooters have now been in production since 2015 and are available in most countries in Europe. The 'Turismo Leggera' (TL) models owe the design of their outer appearance to the final Lambretta produced, the Lambretta DL/GP, although technically considered both the 50cc and 125cc four stroke automatic motors have little in common with the original Italian machines.
