The clothing company uses the Lambretta brand name under license from owner Scooters India Limited. They happen to be the third primary fashion brand in the uk presently. The company makes menswear, footwear, watches, eyewear, grooming products and accessories.

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 more substantial factory producing seamless steel tubing and employing about 6,000. Throughout 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 develop a motor scooter - competing on cost and weather protection against the ubiquitous motorcycle.

Concept
The leading stimulus of the design style of the Lambretta and Vespa dates back to Pre-WWII Cushman scooters manufactured 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 in the Dolomites (a part of the Alps) and the Austrian border areas.

Aeronautical engineer General Corradino D'Ascanio, accountable for and construction of the first modern helicopter by Agusta, was presented with the job by Ferdinando Innocenti of designing a simple, robust and affordable vehicle. It had to be simple to drive for both males and females , be able to carry a passenger but 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 along with a handlebar gear change along with the engine mounted directly onto the back 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 intended for women, as wearing dresses or skirts made riding conventional motorcycles challenging. The front fork, just like an aircraft's landing gear, allowed for simple wheel changing. The inner mesh transmission eliminated the common motorcycle chain, a source of oil and dirt. This basic design allowed many features getting deployed around 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 wanted to produce his frame from rolled tubing, allowing him to revive 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
Going on a year longer to build, 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 section of aero metal; later this developed into a twin skin to allow for additional storage on the 'back of'/behind the leading shield, just like the glove compartment in a car. The fuel cap was underneath the (hinged) seat which saved the expense of 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 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 during the late 1960s, the requirement for motor scooters fell mainly because the small car became accessible to lots more people and Lambretta did start 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 produce cars under licence from BLMC. The Innocenti Mini used the mechanical components of the original but was in many different ways more advanced than it.

Innocenti/Lambretta was eventually sold to BLMC. Unfortunately, deficiency of foresight had caused BLMC to join a fashion trend that 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 essentially the same reasons that Ferdinando Innocenti had built it right after the War. India was really a country with poor infrastructure, economically not prepared 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 around 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 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 on Innocenti's Lambro. API continued to produce Lambretta-derived models till the 1980s but have most certainly 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 set up an Indian factory as most of the 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 become the Vijay Super. Further improvements were produced in the ultimate years of production by incorporating a contemporary Japanese CDI unit and a sophisticated front suspension. SIL also distributed CKDs which were assembled in numerous parts of India and sold as the Allwyn Pusphak, Falcon, and Kesri. They were of a lower quality compared to the 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 the Lambretta engine. SIL also produces limited spares for the GP/DL variety 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 under 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 in addition to a 150 cc UNO150.

There are still clubs across Europe along with the UK, both national and local clubs, devoted to the Lambretta scooter. The clubs still participate and organize ride outs and rallies which regularly take place during weekends during the summertime and have high attendance, some rallies achieve 2,500 paying rally goers. Throughout the UK there are many privately owned scooter shops which deal with everything Lambretta, from sales, services, parts, tuning, performance as well as nut and bolt restorations.
