Video: Do You Lambret-twist? - Gas 2.0

Video: Do You Lambret-twist? - Gas 2.0

Check! One fine Italian citizen has taken up the cause with his Ecolà , a fully self-built DIY modification of a Lambretta 125 D into an electric scooter. It’s a bit difficult to find much information, but one Richiurci and his friend Giovanni swapped out the old engine for a 1 kW motor. They also created the instrument panel, the homemade controller, and the fiberglass battery cover. It seems they didn’t swap out the lead batteries due to the cost of a Lithium battery. The scoot’s range is about 12 miles, and goes up to 31 mph or so- not too shabby considering the original max was 47 mph. Not bad, for not having any funding, and an electric scooter has zero emissions (not counting the source of electricity). My favorite part? Watch for the theme from “The Neverending Story ” at the end of Richiurci’s video. Vespa, you may have been one-upped.
