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 the business to Milan where he built a better 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 produce a motor scooter - competing on cost and weather protection from the ubiquitous motorcycle.

Concept
The principal 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 them to get around Nazi defence tactics of destroying roads and bridges in the Dolomites (a part of the Alps) in addition to the Austrian border areas.

Aeronautical engineer General Corradino D'Ascanio, in charge of the design and construction of the first modern helicopter by Agusta, was presented with 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 able to carry a passenger but not get its driver's clothes soiled.

Design and style
D'Ascanio, who hated motorbikes, developed a revolutionary vehicle. This had been built on a spar frame making use of handlebar gear change while the engine mounted directly onto the back wheel. The front protection "shield" kept the rider dry and clean in comparison 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 challenging. The front fork, just like an aircraft's landing gear, allowed for straightforward wheel changing. The interior mesh transmission eliminated the typical motorcycle chain, a source of oil and dirt. This basic design allowed a series of features to get deployed around the frame which could later allow quick continuing development of new models.

However, General D'Ascanio fell out with Innocenti, who as opposed to a moulded and beaten spar frame wished to produce his frame from rolled tubing, allowing him to revive both areas 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. Original front protection "shield" was a flat section of aero metal; later this developed in to a twin skin providing additional storage at the 'back of'/behind the front shield, similar to the glove compartment in a vehicle. The fuel cap was underneath the (hinged) seat which saved the cost connected with an additional lock for 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 to the factory, Innocenti started construction the Lambretta scooters in 1947 - one year afterwards 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 need for motor scooters fell as the small car became available to 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 in addition to 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 superior to it.

Innocenti/Lambretta was eventually sold to BLMC. Unfortunately, lack of foresight had caused BLMC to partake in 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 fundamentally the same reasons that Ferdinando Innocenti had built it right after the War. India was a country with poor infrastructure, economically not prepared for small private cars yet with a need 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 build the Li150 Series 2 model, that was sold under the Lambretta Series 2 name until about 1976 and at a later point 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 that was based upon Innocenti's Lambro. API continued to build Lambretta-derived models until 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 entire 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 first scooter built was the Vijay Delux/DL, that 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 made 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 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 way of the Lambretta engine. SIL also produces limited spares for the GP/DL variety of scooters. [8] [9] Addititionally there is 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 initial 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, devoted to the Lambretta scooter. The clubs still participate and organize ride outs and rallies which regularly occur during weekends over the summer months and get high attendance, some rallies achieve 2,500 paying rally goers. Across the UK there are lots of privately owned scooter shops which deal with everything Lambretta, from sales, services, parts, tuning, performance as well as nut and bolt restorations.
