We’re coming live from EICMA Moto in Milan and will be updating this post during the day as the covers come off the new machines. Keep popping back and refreshing the page for the latest updates and photos. We’ll go into more detail later.
The new G325 Special is an all-metal monocoque framed, super-sized Lambretta V-Special on steroids. The engine is cast polished alloy (not sure which engine it is yet), 325cc with some nice touches, like the Lambretta side projector light for instance. It’s quite nice to look at up close, certainly more aesthetically pleasing than the V-Special.
Game changer? You bet, 125 and 300cc Royal Alloy TG. liquid-cooled (Piaggio derived engine for the 300), stunning attention to detail, all-metal bodywork, alloy handlebars and horncast. Arriving by June 2020 at around £500 more than the RA GP.
Vespa will be unveiling their updates later today but it looks like we’re just getting a couple of special edition models ‘Sixties Racing’. More details on those later.
Italjet’s final pre-production models are here, they’re looking super sexy in the flesh, so far there’s nothing better to look at, although the showgirls might change that later… We’ll be having a chat to Massimo Tamburini later but he was quite excited when we spoke to him earlier and pre-orders go on sale at noon today. Last week seven Italians turned up at the Italjet factory in Bologna and wanted to place deposits.
The covers are still on the new Lambretta G-Special, a 325cc supersized machine. More details later…
