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 larger 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 decided to produce a motor scooter - competing on cost and weather protection with the ubiquitous motorcycle.

The leading stimulus for the design style of the Lambretta and Vespa dates back to Pre-WWII Cushman scooters produced in Nebraska, USA. These olive green scooters were in Italy in huge 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 (a section of the Alps) in addition to the Austrian border areas.

Aeronautical engineer General Corradino D'Ascanio, and construction of the first modern helicopter by Agusta, was handed the task by Ferdinando Innocenti of designing a simple, robust and affordable vehicle. It had to be simple to drive for both males and females , be capable to carry a passenger and not get its driver's clothes soiled.

The design
D'Ascanio, who hated motorbikes, developed a revolutionary vehicle. It was built on a spar frame which also has a handlebar gear change and also the engine mounted directly onto the back wheel. The front protection "shield" kept the rider dry and clean when compared to 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 quite a job. The front fork, like an aircraft's landing gear, allowed for easy wheel changing. The internal mesh transmission eliminated the normal motorcycle chain, a source of dirt and oil. This basic design allowed many features to be deployed on the frame that would later allow quick development of new models.

However, General D'Ascanio fell out with Innocenti, who as opposed to a moulded and beaten spar frame originally planned to produce his frame from rolled tubing, allowing him to bring back 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 produce, the 1947 Lambretta featured a rear pillion seat for a passenger or optionally a storage compartment. The actual front protection "shield" was really a flat piece of aero metal; later this developed into a twin skin in order to permit additional storage on the 'back of'/behind the leading shield, the same as the glove compartment in a vehicle. The fuel cap was underneath the (hinged) seat which saved the cost of an additional lock on the fuel cap or necessity for additional metal work on the smooth skin.

Deriving the name Lambretta from the small river Lambro in Milan, which ran near the factory, Innocenti started construction of Lambretta scooters in 1947 - the year after Piaggio started manufacture 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 during the late 1960s, the requirement for motor scooters fell given that the small car became available to more and more people and Lambretta did start to struggle financially as did parent Innocenti. The British Leyland Motor Corporation took advantage of Innocenti's financial difficulties and also their production and engineering expertise and contracted Innocenti to manufacture cars under licence from BLMC. The Innocenti Mini used the mechanical parts of the original but was in numerous ways more advanced than it.

Innocenti/Lambretta was eventually sold to BLMC. Unfortunately, shortage of foresight had caused BLMC to join a fashion trend which had been 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 essentially the same reasons that Ferdinando Innocenti had built it after the War. India was a country with poor infrastructure, economically not prepared for small private cars yet with a demand for private transport.

Automobile Products of India (API) began assembling Innocenti-built Lambretta scooters in India after independence in the 1950s. They eventually acquired a licence to produce the Li150 Series 2 model, that was sold under the Lambretta Series 2 name until about 1976 and at a later date changed the name to Lamby for legal reasons as Scooter India Ltd acquired the whole Innocenti Unit in 1972. API also built the trademark model [API-175] 3 wheeler that was based on Innocenti's Lambro. API continued to produce Lambretta-derived models prior to the 1980s but have been non-operational since 2002.

In 1972, Scooters India Ltd. (SIL) a state-run enterprise based in Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh, bought the complete Lambretta manufacturing and trademark rights. Former Innocenti employees were utilised to set up an Indian factory as the whole set of manuals and machinery instructions were in Italian. The 1st scooter built was the Vijay Delux/DL, which was badged the Lambretta GP150 in export markets. This sold poorly on account of build problems and was enhanced to turn into the Vijay Super. Further improvements were made in the final years of production by incorporating a contemporary Japanese CDI unit and a sophisticated front suspension. SIL also distributed CKDs that were assembled in a variety of parts of India and sold as the Allwyn Pusphak, Falcon, and Kesri. These were of a lower quality rrn comparison to the SIL produced models and sometimes incorporated significant styling changes.

SIL production seems to have peaked in the financial year 1980-1981, with around 35,000 scooters being built. However by 1987 this had dropped close to 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 via the Lambretta engine. SIL also produces limited spares for the GP/DL variety of scooters. [8] [9] There is also an acknowledged export trade in second-hand Lambrettas (and their derivatives), primarily into the UK market.

Within the United States Of America, Scooters India Ltd licensed the Khurana Group USA LLC to manufacture and distribute scooters with the Lambretta brand. The initial release in 2008 were rebadged Adly models [10] of contemporary design, including a 49 cc DUE50, a 49 cc UNO50 and also a 150 cc UNO150.

You can still find clubs across Europe and also 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 during the summer months and also have high attendance, some rallies achieve 2,500 paying rally goers. Across the UK there are plenty of privately owned scooter shops which deal with everything Lambretta, from sales, services, parts, tuning, performance and complete nut and bolt restorations.
