The time has finally come at the EICMA 2017: The iconic brand will celebrate its rebirth with the V-Special model, which will be presented to the general public for the first time – following an exclusive sneak preview for the press and importers in June. Like the historic Lambretta, the new V-Special also features a steel body, replaceable side panels (in carbon on request!), aluminium forged parts and the undeniable Lambretta design, which is also reflected in the many elaborate details. The models are named with the dynamic type designations, V50 Special, V125 Special and V200 Special.
The world-renowned Austrian design studio of KISKA (known for the styling of many models by KTM, Husqvarna, KSR MOTO and CFMOTO) has been working closely together with the Italian Lambretta community to create a design which presents a successful synthesis of classic Lambretta elements and modern interpretations.
The new Lambretta naturally uses the latest level of technology: LED taillights, disc brakes on the front and rear, digital displays (do not worry, the speedometer remains analogue!) and, of course, the 50 cc version has a four-stroke engine from the start and the emission standard corresponds to Euro 4. An App with Bluetooth connection will follow.
The new V-Special will go into production at the end of 2017. In February 2018, the first models of a limited pre-series will be available for you to admire at selected dealers in Europe, the delivery of production vehicles beginning in Europe in March 2018.
It is not only in Europe however that there is such enormous interest in the resurrected cult scooter. From Australia and New Zealand via Korea, Singapore and Thailand to Brazil, Lambretta has already been able to find importers and contract negotiations are close to completion in around 50 other countries.
The Austrian KSR Group will be responsible for sales in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Spain and also in the mother country of Lambretta – Italy. The sales prices are already fixed for these countries: The V50 Special will be available from EUR 2,799.00, the V125 Special will follow with prices starting at EUR 3,399.00 and the V200 Special will start at EUR 3,999.00.
