EICMA 2019: Lambretta
Lambretta launches new flagship model: G-Special with 325cc
Innocenti SA, the owner of the iconic Italian scooter brand Lambretta, introduces its new flagship model at EICMA 2019 in Milan. Furthermore, it reveals the introduction of a high-power electric Lambretta planned for Delhi Auto Expo in 2020.
The long-awaited G-Special has been the object of speculation for months, as the professional market expects Lambretta to make a big step, further closing the gap with its main competitor Vespa. The new model is presented as concept-bike and will be finalized within the next months.
The G-Special features a full steel monocoque architecture with interchangeable side panels, the iconic Lambretta design and full rider interface. The model is powered with a real 325cc engine. As special feature, the G325 Special is equipped with a ‘courtesy light’ integrated with the foot board. The light has the shape of the iconic Lambretta logo, and will be automatically ignited when the rider approaches the vehicle.
In February 2020 the G-Special high-power electric version will be launched at Delhi Auto Expo. Lambretta wishes to celebrate its long-lasting warm friendship with the people of India by planning the global introduction of the first electric Lambretta in Delhi.
For the future, Innocenti is defining a clear strategy focusing on the further development of its electric scooters and motorcycles range. It will also invest in Hydrogen2 technology.
Lambretta strives to become the world number 1 within the Italian classic scooter brand segment before 2028. With 610 dealers in 37 countries, Lambretta has consolidated the world-wide recognition and appreciation of its 1947 Milan born lifestyle brand.
The current V-Special portfolio is being extended with two new colors. The 50, 125 and 200 fix fender editions will be available in a fresh turquoise or a straightforward grey with dynamic black stripes on the side panels. For the Thailand market a Special S-series will be introduced, anticipating on the modern preferences of the Thai youngsters.
