Innocenti, the owner of the iconic Italian scooter brand Lambretta, today introduced its new flagship model, the G325 Special, at EICMA 2019 in Milan. Furthermore, it revealed plans for the introduction of a high-power electric Lambretta at the Auto Expo in New Delhi in February 2020. Autocar Professional broke that news as far back as December 2018.
The long-awaited G-Special has been the object of speculation for months, as the professional market expects Lambretta to make a big step, further closing the gap with its main competitor. The new model is presented as concept-bike and will be finalised within the next months.
The G-Special features a full steel monocoque architecture with interchangeable side panels, the iconic Lambretta design and full rider interface. As a special feature, the G325 Special is equipped with a ‘courtesy light’ integrated with the foot board. The light has the shape of the iconic Lambretta logo, and will be automatically ignited when the rider approaches the vehicle.
G-Special high-power electric version for India
In February 2020, the G-Special high-power electric version will be launched at the Auto Expo 2020 in New Delhi. Lambretta is betting on the Indian market and plans to have the global introduction of the first electric Lambretta in Delhi.
For the future, Innocenti is defining a clear strategy focusing on the further development of its electric scooters and motorcycles range. It will also invest in Hydrogen2 technology.
Innocenti is targeting prime position for the Lambretta brand to become the world number 1 within the Italian classic scooter brand segment before 2028. With 610 dealers in 37 countries, Lambretta has consolidated the world-wide recognition and appreciation of its 1947 Milan-born lifestyle brand.
The current V-Special portfolio is being extended with two new colours. The 50, 125 and 200 fix fender editions will be available in a fresh turquoise or a straightforward grey with dynamic black stripes on the side panels. For the Thailand market a Special S-series will be introduced, anticipating modern preferences of Thai youngsters.
