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 an even 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 decided to produce a motor scooter - competing on cost and weather protection from the ubiquitous motorcycle.

Concept
The main stimulus for the design style of the Lambretta and Vespa goes back to Pre-WWII Cushman scooters made 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 Us military had used them to get around Nazi defence tactics of destroying roads and bridges while in the Dolomites (an area of the Alps) in addition to the Austrian border areas.

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

The style
D'Ascanio, who hated motorbikes, created a revolutionary vehicle. It was built on a spar frame along with a handlebar gear change while the engine mounted directly onto the back wheel. The front protection "shield" kept the rider dry and clean in comparison 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 hard. The front fork, just like an aircraft's landing gear, allowed for quick wheel changing. The inner mesh transmission eliminated the common motorcycle chain, a source of oil and dirt. This basic design allowed a series of features getting deployed relating to the frame which would later allow quick advancement of new models.

However, General D'Ascanio fell out with Innocenti, who rather than a moulded and beaten spar frame yearned-for to produce his frame from rolled tubing, allowing him to bring back both sections 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 unique front protection "shield" was really a flat piece of aero metal; later this developed in to a twin skin to allow additional storage at the 'back of'/behind the leading shield, like the glove compartment in a car. The fuel cap was underneath the (hinged) seat which saved the expense of an additional lock for the fuel cap or need 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 through the late 1960s, the need for motor scooters fell simply because small car became available to lots more people and Lambretta began to struggle financially as did parent Innocenti. The British Leyland Motor Corporation took advantage of Innocenti's financial difficulties along with their production and engineering expertise and contracted Innocenti to manufacture cars under licence from BLMC. The Innocenti Mini used the mechanical components of the initial but was in a number of ways better than it.

Innocenti/Lambretta was eventually sold to BLMC. Unfortunately, lack of foresight had caused BLMC to partake in 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 basically 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 around the 1950s. They eventually acquired a licence to produce the Li150 Series 2 model, that was sold using 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 which was influenced by Innocenti's Lambro. API continued to construct Lambretta-derived models prior to 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 all of the manuals and machinery instructions were in Italian. The 1st scooter built was the Vijay Delux/DL, this was badged the Lambretta GP150 in export markets. This sold poorly resulting from build problems and was enhanced to become the Vijay Super. Further improvements were produced in the ultimate years of production by incorporating a contemporary Japanese CDI unit and an advanced front suspension. SIL also distributed CKDs that were assembled in numerous parts of India and sold as the Allwyn Pusphak, Falcon, and Kesri. These were of a lower quality compared to SIL produced models and sometimes incorporated significant styling changes.

SIL production seems to have peaked within 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 way of the Lambretta engine. SIL also produces limited spares for the GP/DL selection of scooters. [8] [9] There's also an acknowledged export trade in second-hand Lambrettas (and their derivatives), primarily to the UK market.

Today
In the United States, Scooters India Ltd licensed the Khurana Group USA LLC to manufacture and distribute scooters with 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 plus a 150 cc UNO150.

You will 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 across the summer season and get high attendance, some rallies achieve 2,500 paying rally goers. All over 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.
