The industrial and technical history of the Lambretta Junior series, told through invaluable archive materials. In the early Sixties, Innocenti took a technological leap in the engineering of the Lambretta, introducing for the first time a monocoque frame clearly inspired by its direct rival, Piaggios Vespa. This led to the birth of the Junior series, with models aimed at younger riders and with lower list prices than the traditional LI and TV versions. This new book devotes specific chapters to questions of production, technology, advertising, and many other areas of interest regarding this series of models that once again enjoyed notable success with the public.
