Model TV Series 2

October 1969 saw the TV 2 has introduced Innocenti scooters marketed as the "sports scooter". Style is based on the end of the Li series 1, but with some changes. A hull reworked, now made a new shot with the direction of light, and floor mats instead of the runners were the major differences. All TVs come with a standard double seat, with a choice of two stools. Changes in production were half of the backlight back style first found in the first television series, offering greater lighting zone last. Again, depending on the model of the first series, the first examples of the second set kept the door round horn, with which after moving to a larger grille, pear-shaped horns. Forks were selected from the first series, and has a color code printing. The front brake has been upgraded to one of the options presented on the disc, but always with drum brakes.

An interesting aspect of the second TV series, was apparently the same power increase, which highlighted the weakness of the body. Alloy Steel are some examples very soon began to break. Innocent recalled all models, and it has been discontinued. Innocent response was to cut the side frame, welded to the flat plate, and then weld the frame back together, which improves the strength. This decision is now behind us, it was very strange, most must have cost a lot of money to implement these changes Innocents, would scrap boxes and start again. When all the current framework was changed, Innocenti better resistance of the frames, making them thicker gauge tube. Chassis numbers in two TV series, appeared in two groups, whose first version was mainly those who needed to change was one, thick successive frames started 2

Now the engine crankshaft 58 mm Stoke, but with a 117mm stem length of 108 mm Li barrel coated with a different and piston. Gone are the awkward arrangement of the first round trip, to be replaced by a single piston, which engaged the first gear teeth. Carburetion is further reduced in size to 21 mm in the afternoon, from the earliest examples of 23mm. Production was still 8.6bhp claimed, with a maximum speed of 65 mph!

The badging on television had the same time "Lambretta wheel cover," as the models of Li, but large plate screws TV175 below. Shields had a leg shield in the center of the horn casting, which hid two screws to help ensure the distribution of the horn, and badge clip. Shields on the stretch placed a thin chrome Lambretta badge, the flagship model TV175 then re-chrome. UK models also gained a round copper plate with St. George the dragon on it. All rubbers and trim, was gray, with control cables, except the following: - The rubber feet were black and standing kick, the joint was white rear lights

Again, as in the sister model, the Li, the television series was the second ten pounds more expensive than the series it replaced, which helped sales to compete. The color choices are Ivory, light blue, and some two-tone yellow or gray, with the second dominant color of the side panels in blue or red and horns. When production stopped in November 1961 over 34,000 examples were built.
