A couple of things I’ve picked up on the new Lambretta Vendetta… here’s a close up of the LCD headlight display unit. Interesting to see the the Bluetooth icon, showing Bluetooth connectivity. There’s an App that comes with your new Lambretta too, apparently.
See the official specs below,
Lights; LED lights feature all round, including the indicators.
Engine Capacity; The Vendetta will come in three capacities, The V50, V125, and V200.
Brakes; The V50 has a front disk brake, and a rear drum. The V125 disks front and rear with a combined braking system (CBS), and the V200 disks front and Rear with a Bosch ABS System.
Flex front mudguard; As with classic Lambrettas (since the LD and LC anyway) the Vendetta features a fixed front fender (or mudguard as we tend to call it in the UK). Except when it doesn’t. There is a ‘flex’ model on all capacities, with a turning front mudguard. For those who prefer a more ‘Spanish’ look I suppose :). One oddity is that the flex models are available in different colours to the standard ‘Specials’.
Storage; There’s a large luggage area under the seat, a luggage hog in front of the seat, and a glove box integrated into the legshields. I have also seen images showing traditional ‘sprint rack’ like rear carriers.
Metal, NOT Plastic. The chassis is STEEL bodywork, on a tubular frame. The side-panels are double-layered, with a 1.2mm steel middle beam that stretches to the sides in a ‘airplane profile architecture’. Make no mistake, this is a solid, premium METAL scooter.
Attention to detail. The new Lambretta appears to have been finished to a very high standard. This is not a cheap and nasty scooter. Take the detailing on the seat, for example.
Pricing. To be announced. But I would expect it will be similar to a top of the range offering from Piaggio.
I’m sure more information will appear. In the meantime, check out the official website, here.
It would look much better with a slightly longer wheelbase
