Lambretta V50 Special Matte Grey.
After years of associating the Italian company with aftershave and t-shirts more than with what it knew to do best, Lambretta got resurrected and finally revealed a new neo-retro scooter. World, meet the V-Special - the brand’s first 21st-century scooter.
As the name suggests, the V50 version is powered by a 49.5 cc 4-stroke air-cooled engine that puts out a maximum of 3.5 hp. It is Euro4 compliant, has an electric starter and can bring you up to a speed of 45+ km/h.
Only the V50 comes with a rear drum brake, while the other two are fitted with front and rear disc brakes which are commanded via a combined braking system to be more user-friendly. Other features include LED lights, 12 V charger, glovebox, luggage hook, large luggage compartment under the seat, side and main stand, and an LCD instrument panel with Bluetooth connectivity.
One of the features Lambretta introduces is the double layer side panel. It encompasses an ingenious 1.2 mm steel semi-monocoque architecture inspired by the aeronautic industry. The sides are covered with panels that can be delivered in different shapes and colors.
