Lambretta Bicicletta Li126
The retro-chic Lambretta brand has entered a new era with the launch of the world’s first Lambretta Bicicletta, the limited edition Li126, brought to you by Fisher Outdoor Leisure. Modelled on the cult Lambretta scooter of the mod era, the Li126 (RRP £599) is a ‘city cruiser’ for men and women who appreciate style and design. It will be launched to the public at the London Cycle Show 2009 at Earls Court, 8-11 October.
LAM DETAIL_8The Lambretta Bicicletta reflects the Lambretta’s vintage styling but with a modern twist. The colours and the chrome finish have been painstakingly matched and the Lambretta badge and logo have been carefully incorporated into the design. Every one of the 500 limited edition models is individually numbered and comes with its own certificate of authenticity.
In the ‘50s and ‘60s, the Lambretta scooter became a symbol of youth, independence and rebellion and was embraced by the mod culture. It is therefore fitting that number 1 of this limited edition model was presented to Paul Weller, the ‘modfather’.
