Useful info about the History of the Lambretta

In 1922, Ferdinando Innocenti of Pescia built a steel-tubing factory in Rome. In 1931, he took this company to Milan where he built a better factory producing seamless steel tubing and employing about 6,000. During the Second World War, the factory was heavily bombed and destroyed. It is said that surveying the ruins, Innocenti saw the future of cheap, private transport and chose to produce a motor scooter - competing on cost and weather protection from the ubiquitous motorcycle.

Concept
The leading stimulus for the design style of the Lambretta and Vespa goes back to Pre-WWII Cushman scooters manufactured in Nebraska, USA. These olive green scooters were in Italy in large numbers, ordered originally by Washington as field transport for the Paratroops and Marines. The United States military had used these to get around Nazi defence tactics of destroying roads and bridges throughout the Dolomites (an area of the Alps) and also the Austrian border areas.

Aeronautical engineer General Corradino D'Ascanio, in charge of and construction of the first modern helicopter by Agusta, was given the job by Ferdinando Innocenti of designing a simple, robust and affordable vehicle. It needed to be easy to drive for women and men , be capable to carry a passenger but not get its driver's clothes soiled.

The style and design
D'Ascanio, who hated motorbikes, designed a revolutionary vehicle. It was built on a spar frame having a handlebar gear change and also the engine mounted directly onto the rear wheel. The front protection "shield" kept the rider dry and clean when compared with the open front-end on motorcycles. The pass-through leg area design was designed for women, as wearing dresses or skirts made riding conventional motorcycles difficult. The front fork, just like an aircraft's landing gear, allowed for easy wheel changing. The internal mesh transmission eliminated standard motorcycle chain, an origin of dirt and oil. This basic design allowed a series of features to be deployed relating to the frame which could later allow quick growth and development of new models.

However, General D'Ascanio fell out with Innocenti, who as opposed to a moulded and beaten spar frame desired to produce his frame from rolled tubing, allowing him to regenerate both the different parts of his prewar company. General D'Ascanio disassociated himself with Innocenti and took his design to Enrico Piaggio who produced the spar-framed Vespa from 1946 on.

Into production
Taking a year longer to create, the 1947 Lambretta featured a rear pillion seat for a passenger or optionally a storage compartment. The original front protection "shield" was a flat piece of aero metal; later this developed in to a twin skin allowing additional storage at the 'back of'/behind the front shield, just like the glove compartment in a vehicle. The fuel cap was beneath the (hinged) seat which saved the cost associated with an additional lock on the fuel cap or requirement for additional metal work on the smooth skin.

Deriving the name Lambretta from the small river Lambro in Milan, which ran near to the factory, Innocenti started manufacturing of Lambretta scooters in 1947 - one year afterwards Piaggio started production of its Vespa models. Lambrettas were manufactured under licence in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, India and Spain, sometimes under other names but always to a recognizable design (e.g. Siambretta in South America and Serveta in Spain).

BLMC closure of Innocenti
As wealth increased in Western Europe in the late 1960s, the demand for motor scooters fell simply because the small car became available to lots more people and Lambretta started to struggle financially as did parent Innocenti. The British Leyland Motor Corporation took advantage of Innocenti's financial hardships as well as their production and engineering expertise and contracted Innocenti to create cars under licence from BLMC. The Innocenti Mini used the mechanical parts of the original but was in many ways more advanced than it.

Innocenti/Lambretta was eventually sold to BLMC. Unfortunately, absence of foresight had caused BLMC to partake in a fashion trend which was ending rapidly. Long industrial strikes in BLMC ensued; motor-scooter sales took a nosedive, and both Innocenti and Lambretta shut up shop in 1972.

The Indian government bought the factory for fundamentally the same reasons that Ferdinando Innocenti had built it right after the War. India was really a country with poor infrastructure, economically not ready for small private cars yet having a need for private transport.

Automobile Products of India (API) began assembling Innocenti-built Lambretta scooters in India after independence during the 1950s. They eventually acquired a licence to build the Li150 Series 2 model, this was sold using the Lambretta Series 2 name until about 1976 and subsequently changed the name to Lamby for legal reasons as Scooter India Ltd acquired the total Innocenti Unit in 1972. API also built the trademark model [API-175] 3 wheeler which was based upon Innocenti's Lambro. API continued to build Lambretta-derived models till the 1980s but have been non-operational since 2002.

In 1972, Scooters India Ltd. (SIL) a state-run enterprise operating out of Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh, bought the whole Lambretta manufacturing and trademark rights. Former Innocenti employees were chosen to setup an Indian factory as the whole set of manuals and machinery instructions were in Italian. The first scooter built was the Vijay Delux/DL, which was badged the Lambretta GP150 in export markets. This sold poorly owing to build problems and was enhanced to turn into the Vijay Super. Further improvements were manufactured in the final years of production by incorporating a contemporary Japanese CDI unit and an advanced front suspension. SIL also distributed CKDs that were assembled in several places of India and sold as the Allwyn Pusphak, Falcon, and Kesri. These were of a lower quality compared to the SIL produced models and sometimes incorporated significant styling changes.

SIL production seems to have peaked during the financial year 1980-1981, with around 35,000 scooters being built. However by 1987 this had dropped to around 4,500 units with production finally ceasing in 1997. As of 2010 S.I.L.'s production now centres on the Vikram 3-wheeler, powered by the Lambretta engine. SIL also produces limited spares for the GP/DL range of scooters. [8] [9] There's also a well established export trade in second-hand Lambrettas (and their derivatives), primarily into the UK market.

Today
Within the U . S ., Scooters India Ltd licensed the Khurana Group USA LLC to manufacture and distribute scooters under the Lambretta brand. The first release in 2008 were rebadged Adly models [10] of contemporary design, including a 49 cc DUE50, a 49 cc UNO50 along with a 150 cc UNO150.

You will still find clubs across Europe in addition to the UK, both national and local clubs, dedicated to the Lambretta scooter. The clubs still participate and organize ride outs and rallies which regularly occur during weekends throughout the summer season and get high attendance, some rallies achieve 2,500 paying rally goers. Throughout the UK there are numerous privately owned scooter shops which deal with everything Lambretta, from sales, services, parts, tuning, performance and complete nut and bolt restorations.
