The LI series Lambrettas are the machines, in bright colours and with shining chrome, that people of a certain age remember affectionately from their youth.
Introduced as a more stylish and versatile alternative to the popular and practical Lambretta LD series, the LI was produced by Innocenti in various guises from 1957 until the last Lambrettas of all rolled off the production line in 1971. The LI series scooters were the most popular Lambrettas of all the machines that people of a certain age remember affectionately from their youth, coming in a range of bright colours and with shining chrome. The LI Series was a fast-selling success for Innocenti not just in its native Italy, but also throughout Europe and elsewhere in the world.
