Lambretta LN scooter gets UK price

Lam1

We featured it at the back end of 2011, with the reception being 'mixed' (which is probably a generous assessment) Anyway, it now looks like the Lambretta LN scooter is ready for the UK, along with another Lambretta LS model.

Anyway, first up, that LN scooter. It looks to have landed at selected dealers ahead of the full launch. One of those being WK Bikes, which will has the LN 125 on display right now in its premises. There's also an LN 150 variation to follow later in the year. Both are 'twist and go' automatic scooters, mixing that with old school looks reminiscent of the original using plastic and metal. It's certainly going to have its fans...but that's unlikely to include traditionalists.

We originally said it was 'made in Italy by Motom Electronics Group SPA', but that's not actually the case. Some of the parts are Italian-made, but it is actually made and imported from Taiwan. That doesn't impact on cost though, with a hefty £3,300 being quoted for the LN 125. Ouch. Also, look out for a twin-seated LS scooter too - that's pictured over the page and will come in 50cc and 125cc models. It's likely to be cheaper, but not by much, we'd wager.

Lambretta Consortium headquartered in Milan, Italy is initiating one of the largest trademark counter-infringement operations in recent history, by preventing the unlicensed LN125 and LS125 scooters entering the world market under the name Lambretta.

"All importers/distributors engaged in the LN 125 /LS 125 must immediately cease and desist from distributing, marketing, offering for sale, advertising, ordering any product bearing the trademark LAMBRETTA"

Here's the official word from http://www.lambretta.com/
