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 larger 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 they would produce a motor scooter - competing on cost and weather protection against the ubiquitous motorcycle.

Concept
The primary stimulus for the design style of the Lambretta and Vespa dates 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 United States military had used these to get around Nazi defence tactics of destroying roads and bridges while in the Dolomites (a part of the Alps) along with 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 easy to drive for both women and men , be capable to carry a passenger without having it get its driver's clothes soiled.

The design
D'Ascanio, who hated motorbikes, developed a revolutionary vehicle. This had been built on a spar frame having a handlebar gear change and also the engine mounted directly onto the rear 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 aimed at women, as wearing dresses or skirts made riding conventional motorcycles a task. The front fork, just like an aircraft's landing gear, allowed for straightforward wheel changing. The inner mesh transmission eliminated the typical motorcycle chain, an origin of dirt and oil. This basic design allowed a number of features to end up being deployed concerning the frame which could later allow quick 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 aspects 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 produce, the 1947 Lambretta featured a rear pillion seat for a passenger or optionally a storage compartment. The initial front protection "shield" was really a flat section of aero metal; later this developed in to a twin skin to permit additional storage at the 'back of'/behind the leading shield, similar to the glove compartment in a car. The fuel cap was under the (hinged) seat which saved the cost 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 the Lambretta scooters in 1947 - the year after 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 as the small car became available for 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 difficulties along with their production and engineering expertise and contracted Innocenti to create 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, absence 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 right after the War. India was really 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 around the 1950s. They eventually acquired a licence to build 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 total Innocenti Unit in 1972. API also built the trademark model [API-175] 3 wheeler which was based upon 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 located in Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh, bought the complete Lambretta manufacturing and trademark rights. Former Innocenti employees were chosen 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, which was badged the Lambretta GP150 in export markets. This sold poorly thanks to build problems and was enhanced to become the Vijay Super. Further improvements were made 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 a variety of places 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 in 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 by way of the Lambretta engine. SIL also produces limited spares for the GP/DL selection of scooters. [8] [9] There is also an acknowledged export trade in second-hand Lambrettas (and their derivatives), primarily for the UK market.

Today
Within the Usa, 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 and a 150 cc UNO150.

There are still clubs across Europe as well as 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 throughout the summer seasonn and have high attendance, some rallies achieve 2,500 paying rally goers. Across 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.
