If you like your pictures a little more move-y, here’s a couple of short movies. I think the scoot in the Casa Performance Race Livery looks fantastic. If any of the models on the stand is going to win over a few of the sceptics, it’s that ‘un.
Some pics of the New Lambretta Vendetta at EICMA (the annual trade show for motorcycles in Milan).
Looks pretty good, even sans totty…
Looking good in Race Livery…
New official Lambretta helmets… colour matched to the new models. I suspect these will go down well, even with hardcore traditionalists
A new flagship carbon fibre model…
Like their forebears, there are now some official accessories, racks, screens and more.
That’s it for now. I think the quality of ‘fit and finish’ on project Vendetta is becoming plain to see. More pics, with details of how you can get hold of one, and how much it’s going to cost you, coming soon.
Got it! So proud to have the first ever pic of the New Lambretta – The Vendetta V200 Special – on the internet. This appears to be a clandestine “shot by the cleaner” type photo – in a photo studio set up. I just received this from a friend – and after making discrete enquiries – it is the genuine article. After assuring myself this IS the New Lambretta we’ve been waiting for so long, I couldn’t wait publish.
A reliable (but secret) source informs me that Lambretta is introducing the new model “V-Special” in a steel semi-monocoque structure – Just like the old days! A proper Lambretta then – as shared in this previous post. Strong, iconic Lambretta design heritage, with lots of aluminium on it.
I’m told the Vendetta is to go into full production in October, for the global market. I’ve also heard that Lambretta are going to take a robust position against copiers of the classic Lambretta. Rumours indicate that the official Lambrettas will not be sold via distributors who sell these other marques.
Via other channels, I’ve heard that Scootering Magazine have been given global scoop for the introduction… unfortunately for them we beat them with the first pic! Remember where you saw it first! My Scootering magazine (the June edition) will hit my mail box around 20th May… I can’t wait to see more. I’m sorry to say I’m not going make it to Adria, but all going, have a great time.
