Scomadi Turismo Leggera 250 runs wild…

Just thinking about riding this thing makes us laugh out loud...    :-D

With its Lambretta styling, Piaggio engine and carbonfibre bodywork, the Scomadi Turismo Leggera 250 is rather unique and we quite like the way it looks. Handbuilt in the UK by Scomadi, the TL250 is fitted with a 250cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, four-stroke Piaggio engine that kicks out 21 horsepower and 20Nm of torque.

The engine is mated to a continuously variable transmission (CVT), while the tubular space frame chassis is custom-built. Twin outboard Bitubo gas-assisted hydraulic shock absorbers, with adjustable spring preload, handle suspension duties at both ends and 175mm (front) and 220mm (rear) disc brakes take care of stopping the TL250. The scooter rides on 10-inch (front) and 12-inch (rear) wheels, shod with 100/90 and 130/70 tubless tyres.

The Scomadi TL250 weighs 117 kilos and has a fuel tank capacity of 11 litres. Scomadi are selling this scooter as a limited edition model in the UK. More details here and here

You really had me , Love the style and the concept .
But I can't go for the Paggio power plant in a Lambretta !
Darn I'd love to have one but it would have to sport a lambretta motor like the new twin 250cc .
What a combination that would be !

I think it's the best of all worlds. Lambretta styling with its engine between the wheels, modern technology... and it's bloody quick.

I'll have one.
