The Lambretta is an Italian scooter produced by the mechanical industry Innocenti of Milan, in the Lambrate district, from 1947 to 1972. The name "Lambretta" derives from the river Lambro, which flows in the area where the production plants used to stand.
The Lambretta like the Vespa, represents an italian icon in the fifties and sixties.
The first models produced by the Lambretta had the characteristic of "uncovered bodywork", thus distinguishing itself completely from the Vespa (totally faired), becoming the typical sign of recognition of the Milanese scooter. However the subsequent models produced, exactly from the C model of 1950, were also presented in a faired version.
From the structural point of view, the substantial differences between the Lambretta and the Vespa are mainly two:
- the Vespa was built with a single-piece chassis, the Lambretta had a more rigid tubular structure on which the body was assembled.
- the engine location; in the Lambretta it was placed in a central position, in the Vespa the engine was offset on the right side of the motorcycle.
