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

Concept
The leading stimulus of 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 huge numbers, ordered originally by Washington as field transport for the Paratroops and Marines. The Us military had used them to get around Nazi defence tactics of destroying roads and bridges while in the Dolomites (an area 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 handed the task by Ferdinando Innocenti of designing a simple, robust and affordable vehicle. It needed to be uncomplicated to drive for both men and women , have the capacity to carry a passenger and still not get its driver's clothes soiled.

The style
D'Ascanio, who hated motorbikes, designed a revolutionary vehicle. This had been built on a spar frame which includes 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 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 straightforward wheel changing. The inner mesh transmission eliminated the common motorcycle chain, an origin of oil and dirt. This basic design allowed several features to be deployed relating to the frame which would later allow quick continuing development of new models.

However, General D'Ascanio fell out with Innocenti, who rather than a moulded and beaten spar frame wanted 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 to build, 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 permitting additional storage at the 'back of'/behind the leading shield, like the glove compartment in a vehicle. The fuel cap was under the (hinged) seat which saved the expense connected with 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 to the factory, Innocenti started construction 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 demand for motor scooters fell simply because small car became available for lots more people and Lambretta began to struggle financially as did parent Innocenti. The British Leyland Motor Corporation took advantage of Innocenti's financial difficulties including 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 plenty of different ways better than it.

Innocenti/Lambretta was eventually sold to BLMC. Unfortunately, deficiency of foresight had caused BLMC to partake in a fashion trend that 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 a country with poor infrastructure, economically not ready 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 build the Li150 Series 2 model, that was sold using the Lambretta Series 2 name until about 1976 and at a later time changed the name to Lamby for legal reasons as Scooter India Ltd acquired the whole 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 till the 1980s but have been non-operational since 2002.

In 1972, Scooters India Ltd. (SIL) a state-run enterprise operating out of 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 first scooter built was the Vijay Delux/DL, this was badged the Lambretta GP150 in export markets. This sold poorly resulting from 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 an advanced front suspension. SIL also distributed CKDs which were assembled in several places of India and sold as the Allwyn Pusphak, Falcon, and Kesri. These were of a lower quality as opposed 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 range of scooters. [8] [9] Addititionally there is a well established export trade in second-hand Lambrettas (and their derivatives), primarily to 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 and also a 150 cc UNO150.

You will still find clubs across Europe in addition to 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 seasonn and get high attendance, some rallies achieve 2,500 paying rally goers. Throughout the UK there are various privately owned scooter shops which deal with everything Lambretta, from sales, services, parts, tuning, performance and complete nut and bolt restorations.
