NSU Lambretta motor scooter, 1951

The motor scooter started to gain a foothold in post-war Germany. NSU responded fastest and presented the NSU Lambretta for the first time at the Frankfurt Trade Fair in 1950, built under licence from the Italian company Innocenti. The new NSU target group: women. With standard fuel consumption of 2 litres/100 km, the Lambretta enjoyed superb commercial success in Germany. 1100 scooters rolled off the production line in August 1951 alone.

Engine: 1-cylinder, 2-stroke
Displacement: 125 cc
Power: 4.5 hp at 4,500 rpm
Maximum speed: 75 km/h
Series: 1950-1954
