Lambretta release a new V-Special
Scooter manufacturer Lambretta unveiled their first scooter after taking an extremely long break from producing. The V-Special was revealed at the Lambretta 70th Anniversary Euro Rally at the beginning of last month in front of 2,000 lucky Lambretta fans.
Lambretta decided to seek help from KISKA for design inspiration for the new model since it’s been a while since one of their scooters has been newly produced. Kiska are brand behind the majority of the new KTM and Husqvarna designs, including the Vitpilen and Svartpilen, which are both extraordinary machines. It has been said that Lambretta also considered the opinions of brand enthusiasts to help make the scooter the best it could be.
The V-Special will be available in 50, 125, and 169 cc engines which will all be euro 4 compliant, and an electric scooter is expected to follow next year. In addition, the scooter will carry a semi-monocoque frame as standard, and each model depending on engine size will have various different features.
For example, the V50 Special will utilise a 50cc 4T engine with an electronic carburetor and will offer a liquid crystal display with Bluetooth connectivity, an LED headlight and rear light, an integrated glove box, 12 V charger, and large luggage storage underneath the seat. The V125 carries the same features as the 50cc, but the 125 has a 125cc 4T engine with direct fuel injection and a break system. Moreover, again the features are the same with the 169, but instead uses a 169 cc 4T engine with direct fuel injection and a Bosch ABS system.
