    2011 Lambretta LN

    Yet another attempt at a Lambretta that supposedly is hitting the marketplace next year (have I heard that before?).

    It will be made in Italy by Motom Electronics, and it at least looks like how I would imagine a modern Lambretta would look like.(Although for Australia they will have to put some stupid indicators further out to meet ADR)

    If it came into being, and to Australia, I would very seriously consider it.

    A four stroke 125cc or 150cc engine and an auto trans, it will horrify some purists, but if it does come out it will have its buyers I am sure.

     I notice all the bits that on the original Lambrettas were chrome are now a dull brushed alloy (or simply grey plastic?). It's hard to see the point in having side panel flashes that don't....flash. Indifferent

    I actually like it..... and it will come here no doubt about it........

    This Lambretta will be made in Taiwan under contract as far as I know. All the parts you can see are plastic and the engine and running gear is all Taiwanese.

    Why is tis posted in the Classic zone? It has a modern Vespa engine and GTS instrument panel! Only the name is classic, but then so is "Vespa".

    Two completely different concepts.

    The Lambretta you see here is your Kymco Like type of thing but with a syle that's bankable. Looks good I reckon.

    This will be a mass produced classic that will sell for OK money. A good value commuter with plenty of conversation starters in it.

    Automatic as well!

    Huh?! Huh?
    The brand-name "Vespa" has been owned by Piaggio since Day 1.

    I don't think that the same can be said for "Lambretta", so therefore "Vespa" is more than just a classic name or a 21st. century attempt at doing a retrospective.

    At best, this Lambretta-badged model is someone's idea of "This is what a Lambretta would look like now if they had continued under the original ownership".
    (Note that, unlike the original Lambretta, the front mudguard is not fixed).

    I guess you're right, Pyrah. I saw that GT200 instrument panel, and assumed the engine wouldf be Piaggio as well. I don't recognise the transmission, but I see it has a drum brake at the rear.

    Re: 2011 Lambretta LN

    Given that I've been told by the guy who is importing them into Australia that Lambretta have specifically stated that they cannot be sold out of Vespa dealerships, I'd be extremely surprised if they were going to use Piaggio technology.   He also said that they were going to be made in Italy, or maybe he meant "Italian styled".  

    They've kind of got the looks a bit closer than the last attempt that I think was a rebadged Adly with a Lambretta sticker on it, but it looks suspiciously like "tupperware" and if I were a Lambretta owner I'd not be happy that my brand was being quite so debased.   But then I'm a Vespa man, so go for it I say!!
