Lambretta, an Italian scooter maker, just recently introduced two brand-new models to the general public. These models are the Lambretta G350 and the Lambretta X300, and they were unveiled during the Milan Design Week 2022.
Both of these scooters have a design that is evocative of vintage Lambrettas from bygone ages.
Despite this, both come standard with a plethora of amenities befitting the current day the modern era.
When released later this year, the new scooters designed specifically for the European market and featuring a CVT automatic transmission and two new engines will be the most cutting-edge models the manufacturer offers.
The 2022 Lambretta G350 gets its power from a 330 cc four-valve, single-cylinder, four-stroke, fuel-injected, liquid-cooled engine that pumps out 27 horsepower at 7,500 rpm and 27 Nm of peak torque at 6,250 rpm.
Meanwhile, the 2022 Lambretta X300 is powered by a 275 cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine that produces 25 hp at 8,250 rpm and 24.5 Nm of peak torque at 6,250 rpm.
LED headlights, disc brakes front and rear with anti-lock braking systems, USB charging ports, and digital display gauges are just some of the cutting-edge features and components found on each scooter.
As opposed to the X300, the Lambretta G350 features a TFT-LCD screen and an electronic keyless ignition.
The Lambretta X300 has a curb weight of 165 kilograms, however, the Lambretta G350, which is the larger model, has a curb weight of 173 kilograms.
While the fuel tank in the G350 can hold up to 9.5 liters of fuel, the fuel tank in the X300 can only hold up to 7 liters of petrol.
Both sets of wheels on both scooters have a diameter of 12 inches, and the front suspension on both sets of scooters is a one-of-a-kind design that consists of a pair of trailing links.
Despite the fact that Lambretta scooters were popular in India throughout the 1960s and 1970s, the most recent two models that are being manufactured by Lambretta are only designed with the European market in mind.
