Li Special

In 1963, Li 150 Special was presented with several new features. Designed as a sportier version with standard Li, but a cheaper alternative to TV, the special was granted different style, the way of the new revision of the 3 Series, the panel's work for television, including a kit octagonal headset, keeps fenders, gray trunk and side panels. The side panels have flashing fingers in front and rear, and two cards of Lambretta. A two-seater has been proposed as a standard, but bucket seats were optional Li in some markets. Engine 150 was a wise change of cylinder head and, strangely enough, but not 18 mm carburetor, which is an increase in power compared to the standard box 6.6bhp 8.25bhp Li has also been revised to use the rise, with new closer ratios, which has been and remains a favorite of scooter riders.

These boxes are not without problems though as the third gear was thinner than normal which caused them to break, so Innocenti after he changed to a thicker in later models, with slightly different ratios. In the UK the special Li 150 was marketed as the pacemaker, a label, a pacemaker is directly below the logo on the front leg shield. Distributors pop group Gerry and the Pacemakers in a wide range of promotional materials.

A 125cc version was introduced in October 1965 (mainly due to tax benefits in Italy), and if something was a more highly tuned the 150th Equipped with a 20mm carburetor with further changes in the barrel and piston, corresponding to 150, and also an increase in compression ratio, so that the 125 provides an output 7.12bhp and a top speed of about 50 mph. When the 125 version rated higher than his brother was in the 150cc acceleration due to low speed used on this model. This box is gone and later found their way into sports GP 125 and GP200 models. Despite its sporty, very few were imported to England when the British market wanted higher capacity machines, how are you ever in recent years, many coming over from Italy with dealers or individuals benefit from this machine.
Once again in mid-production changes to both 125 and 150 included moving to a larger helmet removed the chrome ring located between the atrium and cast horn, black teeth, instead of gray, cut buffers on the fork bolt past them, and clip on side panels instead of the usual handle type more commonly known were others. The crested shield badge gave way to an alloy badge with a blue background on the newer models, as did replacing the metal tool boxes with gray plastic items

Two models were introduced in 1965 by Innocenti, possibly, is to assist in the sale or commissioning of the 125 small models. Special Money, which was not very impressive because even the special gold and silver, which was completely including wheels and hubs, forks etc., painted in a pale gold. Both models gained rear frame badge with a special mention, with dependents either gold or silver in color of the bike, while in the front of the badge gold-plated silver or installed in the right leg shield. The model has however a brown vinyl seat

By the time production stopped in October 1966, a very respectable 69,529,150 29,841,125 Specials and has been produced. With the color options of white or metallic blue for 125 150s were available in silver or gold from the factory, but as with other models Lambretta dealers offer a wider choice because they are green on white, with panel color red or blue.
