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 an even 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 develop a motor scooter - competing on cost and weather protection with the ubiquitous motorcycle.

The main stimulus for 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 large numbers, ordered originally by Washington as field transport for the Paratroops and Marines. The United States military had used these to Nazi defence tactics of destroying roads and bridges in the Dolomites (a section 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 given the duty by Ferdinando Innocenti of designing a simple, robust and affordable vehicle. It had to be uncomplicated to drive for both ladies and men , have the ability to carry a passenger without having it get its driver's clothes soiled.

Design and style
D'Ascanio, who hated motorbikes, developed a revolutionary vehicle. It had been built on a spar frame which also has a handlebar gear change and the engine mounted directly onto the rear 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 intended for women, as wearing dresses or skirts made riding conventional motorcycles hard. The front fork, like an aircraft's landing gear, allowed for quick wheel changing. The inner mesh transmission eliminated the conventional motorcycle chain, a source of oil and dirt. This basic design allowed a series of features to end up being deployed regarding the frame which would 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 bring back 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
Going on a year longer producing, the 1947 Lambretta featured a rear pillion seat for a passenger or optionally a storage compartment. Original front protection "shield" was a flat piece of aero metal; later this developed in to a twin skin in order to permit additional storage at the 'back of'/behind the front shield, the same as the glove compartment in a car. The fuel cap was beneath the (hinged) seat which saved the expense connected with an additional lock in 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 - 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 through the late 1960s, the requirement for motor scooters fell because the small car became available for 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 together with their production and engineering expertise and contracted Innocenti to create cars under licence from BLMC. The Innocenti Mini used the mechanical parts of the initial but was in a number of ways better than it.

Innocenti/Lambretta was eventually sold to BLMC. Unfortunately, deficiency of foresight had caused BLMC to take part 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 essentially the same reasons that Ferdinando Innocenti had built it after the War. India was a country with poor infrastructure, economically not ready for small private cars yet having 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 using the Lambretta Series 2 name until about 1976 and soon after 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 had been based upon Innocenti's Lambro. API continued to construct Lambretta-derived models until the 1980s but have most certainly 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 setup 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 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 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. They 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 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 selection of scooters. [8] [9] There's also an established export trade in second-hand Lambrettas (and their derivatives), primarily to the UK market.

In the U . S ., 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 together with a 150 cc UNO150.

You can still find clubs across Europe and 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 across the summer seasonn and also have high attendance, some rallies achieve 2,500 paying rally goers. All over the UK there are various privately owned scooter shops which deal with everything Lambretta, from sales, services, parts, tuning, performance as well as nut and bolt restorations.
