Luna landing! Casa Perfomance CP ONE35 arrives| NEWS
The lads at Rimini Lambretta Centre have finally released the ‘CP One35’ kits onto the market. This is part of their ‘Casa Performance’ (CP) tuning & upgrades range of parts, and is a plug ‘n’ play conversion kit offering unprecedented out-of-the-box performance for any smallframe J Range or Lui /Vega/Cometa, irrespective of original engine size.
Currently the only mass-produced kit for these models is the ‘Casa 75’ which puts out just 3.5hp. The ‘CP One35’ puts out between 10-12hp (depending on exhaust used) in standard, untouched format, with power delivery being very linear. Performance is on a par with a very good Lambretta GP200 and there’s loads of bottom-end torque on tap. That unloved Vega 75 or J50 that you have lurking at the back of your garage instantly becomes a perfectly useable scooter for both commuting and rally-going alike.
Here at SLUK we have followed their tests and trials of the kits over the last 18 months, with some truly epic trips being undertaken. As one person put it, “They’re prepared to go and break down in the middle of nowhere so we don’t have to!”
All J50, Lui 50, Lui/Vega/Cometa 75cc, Cento, J125 and Starstream models share an identical base gasket design and that means that this kit can be fitted to any of these models, as long as a 48mm stroke (100cc-125cc type) crankshaft is used.
The specifications of the new ‘CP One35’ kit are as follows: nicasil lined die-cast high-grade aluminium barrel, multi-port, purpose-made graphite coated 60mm Meteor piston, 4-petal reedvalve inlet, one-piece rubber inlet manifold, multi-point cylinder head fixing and a 4-stud exhaust flange mounting (two of which are in the original positions). Each kit comes complete with studs, a full selection of gaskets and all necessary fixing hardware.
This kit is part of a high-quality package of components that Casa Performance want to offer for prospective customers. Unlike largeframe Lambrettas, where all other auxiliary parts are easily available, their smallframe stablemates had pretty much nothing else to choose from – until now. The list of accompanying parts for the CP One35 kits is ever-growing and the quality is what we’ve come to expect from the Casa Performance brand.
There are five multi-plate cassette type LunaMaster clutches, drive sprockets and gearbox components galore including the plug ‘n’ play 5-speed Vega5 gearboxes, 12V electronic Ducati Firefly ignitions, chain guides with kit-specific exhausts (both standard and sports type), HD cranks, gearbox endplates, engine sidecasing covers and even LI type front forks also due out very soon. The list is endless… They have also released a very thorough, complete guideline (in both English and Italian) about the ‘CP One35’ kit and all associated products that can be viewed HERE
The code for the ‘CP One35’ kits is X807 and the cost is €485,00/GBP £433. The kits are available HERE directly from Rimini Lambretta Centre, or can be ordered from any Casa Performance dealer worldwide. Let the fun begin!
