Some of you might remember that we featured some limited edition Lambretta helmets back in April. Well, it seems that the same company has some new helmets coming next month - these Trojan Records scooter helmets.
It's another limited edition and more or less the same as the previous helmets, but for the new design. From August, you can choose from either of the two designs above, both open-faced, both eco leather-lined and with a 30-month manufacturer’s warranty, as well as meeting European Road Safety Standards.
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.
