So, Scomadi Scooters have done what people have been clamoring for for many years: bringing modern scooter technology to a "real" retro styled scooter (not something George-Jetson-esque, calling it retro). They have basically taken the body of a GP Lambretta, and put in all the mechanics of a modern scooter, including double shock forks, disc brakes, and a powerful 4-stroke engine. The new scooters will be sold in 50cc, 125cc and 300cc versions!
This is directly from the Scomadi website: "The Turismo Leggera range represents the culmination of 10 years of prototype development. Utilizing the experience of PM Tuning Racing Products & Scooter Innovation, Scomadi are aimed at providing a new era in scootering for followers of iconic Italian design.

A machine that allows the true enthusiast to retain classic styling without sacrificing reliability or modern day functionality.
