New Lambretta Scooters India Features
The new Lambretta scooters are fairly feature-laden. They get LED headlamp and LED turb indicators along with telescopic suspension and a 220 mm disc brake for the front wheel. The rear wheel gets a 110 mm drum brake. Another standard feature available on all the three products is a 12V charging socket and a fully-digital speedo console. Other than this, the scooters get plenty of chrome and many storage spaces.
Speculations abound that Innoceti S.A., the owners of Lambretta, is working to acquire the distribution rights in India. They could even go on to manufacture these scooters in our country. This will help the company price the offerings really competitively. However, we await an official word on this and will update you with more information as soon as we manage to dig out some.
