Innocenti Lambretta Lui 75 (75 S, 75 SL, Vega, Cometa)

Innocenti Lambretta Lui 75 (75 S, 75 SL, Vega, Cometa)

Description


Lambretta Lui
(like Luna, Vega & Cometa)

The Lui (also called Vega in some export markets) was designed to secure the market share in the 50cc class, after the J-range only achieved disappointing sales figures. To keep the production cost down, the scooter's equipment was reduced to the necessary minimum. In order to avoid a cheap appearance, Nuccio Bertone, a renowned vehicle designer was given the task of creating a suitable livery for the lightweight model. Indeed his design for Lui and Vega was a futuristic masterpiece which looks just as up-to-date today as in 1968, when the slogan “All for Lui and Lui for all” was created.

The frame consists of a front and a rear piece. While the front is made from conventional tubular steel, the rear is a pressed steel item. The suspension was adapted from the J-range, while the brake drums were made entirely from steel. Most of the mechanical system was taken over from the J.

Lui 75 S & SL

Only a few months after the launch of the Lui 50, Innocenti presented the Lui 75 at the 15th Tokyo Motor Show, being the only European exhibitor present. The Lui 75, also dubbed Vega, was available in two versions: S and SL. Compared to the 50cc models, the 75 had a upgraded electric system to power high beam and brake light. Similar to the 50 S both 75 versions had a dual seat and a motocross-style up-and- over exhaust. The engine's power output was 5,2 hp, giving a rather quick acceleration thanks to the 4-speed gearbox.

The main difference between the S and the SL however is the autolube system called “Lubematic”. It was the first autolube system fitted to a mass-production Italian scooter.

Both versions were only available in two colour schemes: Ochre and metallic grey. The main visible difference between the two is a Lubematic sticker at the legshiels of the SL.
