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

Concept
The principal stimulus of 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 huge 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 while in the Dolomites (a part of the Alps) as well as the Austrian border areas.

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

The style
D'Ascanio, who hated motorbikes, created a revolutionary vehicle. It had been built on a spar frame which includes 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 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 a task. The front fork, just like an aircraft's landing gear, allowed for easy wheel changing. The interior mesh transmission eliminated the regular motorcycle chain, a source of dirt and oil. This basic design allowed many features to be deployed around the frame that 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 yearned-for to produce his frame from rolled tubing, allowing him to bring back both elements 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 for a year longer to build, the 1947 Lambretta featured a rear pillion seat for a passenger or optionally a storage compartment. The original front protection "shield" was a flat piece of aero metal; later this developed into a twin skin allowing additional storage at the 'back of'/behind the front shield, just like the glove compartment in a car. The fuel cap was beneath the (hinged) seat which saved the expense connected with 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 production the 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 in the late 1960s, the requirement for motor scooters fell as the small car became available for 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 hardships together with their production and engineering expertise and contracted Innocenti to manufacture cars under licence from BLMC. The Innocenti Mini used the mechanical elements of the initial but was in numerous 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 fundamentally the same reasons that Ferdinando Innocenti had built it following the War. India was a country with poor infrastructure, economically not ready 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 build 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 had been based upon Innocenti's Lambro. API continued to build 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 entire Lambretta manufacturing and trademark rights. Former Innocenti employees were used to set up an Indian factory as all the manuals and machinery instructions were in Italian. The 1st scooter built was the Vijay Delux/DL, that was badged the Lambretta GP150 in export markets. This sold poorly as a result of build problems and was enhanced to turn into the Vijay Super. Further improvements were manufactured 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 a variety of places of India and sold as the Allwyn Pusphak, Falcon, and Kesri. They were of a lower quality rrn comparison to the SIL produced models and sometimes incorporated significant styling changes.

SIL production seems to have peaked during 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 because of 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 for the UK market.

Today
In the United States Of America, Scooters India Ltd licensed the Khurana Group USA LLC to manufacture and distribute scooters under 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 along with 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 take place during weekends throughout the summer months and also have 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 and complete nut and bolt restorations.
