Tuning a 50s classic Lambretta

The Lambretta LD was produced by Innocenti for most of the 1950s and together with with it’s open-frame sibling, the Model D, hundreds of thousands were sold. Great for their time, but not really suitable for modern roads. Until now…

In edition 22 of ScooterNova magazine we exclusively road test the new Granturismo LD150 Reed Valve kit, designed to make these classics more usable in the 21st century. After all, they are vehicles, not museum pieces.
