Who needs to ride, or even go outside? With Google earth I can "travel" anywhere on the planet. I can "see" all my friends on Skype. Order anything on Amazon, and have my groceries delivered by drone. (Just think of it as living in your parent's basement for ever-and-ever!)
I like it! Everything similar usually looks "Vespa"... That's fine, but the old-school Lambretta look is "something old" that becomes "something new"! I especially like the seat/luggage rack setup. Modern but traditional looking. Also, the bold "200" stripe graphic. Sort of a mix of Herbie the Love Bug, and European "Hooligan scoots" cosmetics. This is a classic step-through "real scooter" which definitely appeals to me... I do like the idea of a 400cc version. It would be "the bomb" to have a traditional Italian-looking small scoot that could run with eighty-five-mph traffic. If they come up with THAT one, I might have to hock the family jewels and try one! I hope these do come to America!
PS: I just looked Scomadi up on the Net, and they already are promoting a 300... Here's a bit from a write-up on them... Hmmm... the writer seems a tad hesitant about doing the century-mark on 10, no, make that 12" wheels... Cheesh! When I was 16, I often broke 100 on my street-licensed, Mac MC101-powered Go Kart Scrambler mini-bike on 5" wheels(11" tire O.D.)!!! Of course, at 16, we're all pretty much brain-dead... LOL! Based in the UK, Scomadi scooters has plans to being offering up new-age Lambretta clones for scooter enthusiasts who care more about the look and feel of their ride and less about authenticity. Until now, they’ve been talking about 50cc and 125cc variants that are, presumably, based on the Honda/GY engine architecture- but they just released a new video (above) and specs (below) of a new, 300cc “flagship” scooter model packing 22 HP!
With that much power on tap, the Scomadi Lambretta 300 TL will be easily capable of holding its own on highway rides- and might just ever so slightly crack 100 MPH if you’re the type of person who’s crazy enough to try that sort of thing on 10″ tires.
Wait- what’s that? They’re 12″ tires?
Well, kids- it’s been nice knowing you. I’m going to go try to hit 100 MPH on glorified moped without dying … as soon as I’m able to, of course. Assuming everything goes to plan, Scomadi will be ready to ship their first batch of scooters next spring.
they passed a law in FL where you can go without a helmet, but you have to have proof of medical insurance,this is so when they scrape you off the road, the tax payers wont get hosed, with your medical bills, it's shown over and over that you will most likely, be much more severely inured. It's your choice if you want to be a vegetable, but the taxpayers shouldn't get the bill for it.
