I wrote about the relaunch of the Lambretta scooter on my other blog way back in November last year… read the blog entry here.
It’s been pretty quiet since then… but I’ve heard on the jungle drums that there is some exciting news in the offing… and that the all new Lambretta LN will be back soon. Very soon. We’re talking June. There will be two models, sharing simialar styling, the LS which comes in 50cc, 125, and 150cc variants, and the steel bodied LN, which comes with a 125 or 150 engine. Both the LS and the LN use a single cylinder, air cooled 4 stroke engine.   

I’ve received no word on pricing, yet, but stick with me, check back, and if I hear anything, anything at all, it’ll be posted up here. 
UPDATE: Right, had a sniff… and the word on the street is they will be selling for around £3,300… so sort of in the same ballpark as a 125 Vespa.

In the meantime, check out this official website.
What do you think the chances are of them lending me one for a couple of weeks, so I can write a proper review?
