Lambretta USA is pleased to announce that the new Lambretta has reached a very important milestone in its rebirth.
After months of hard work, Frank Sanderson, of Scooter Innovations, has successfully completed and road tested the Phase Â0Â Lambretta prototype at his Preston, U.K. facility. According to Sanderson, ÂThe initial prototype has been engineered to offer excellent handling and performance while maintaining the classic Lambretta look that we all feel so strongly about.Â
After road testing the prototype Sanderson commented, Âthe handling is extremely responsive and the acceleration is phenomenal. Unlike the older Lambrettas, the rider feels no engine vibration on this scooter and the suspension does a brilliant job of absorbing the road. Overall, this scooter is very solid and covers the road in smooth and effortless fashion. I am extremely pleased with the results.Â
The prototype is scheduled to go to Italy for evaluation after which it will be shipped to CMSIÂs headquarters in Preston, WA for final evaluation and testing. If all goes well, the phase Â0Â prototype will be displayed at the 2005 Dealer Expo in Indianapolis Feb 19-21, Booth #2843.
Plans are now under way to determine where the new Lambretta will be assembled. The various parts and components will come from companies in different countries. Vendors from Italy, Germany, U.K., USA, Taiwan, China, Australia and Canada are all being considered.
