Available in a men’s (small, medium and large) and women’s (small and medium) version the Li126 is custom built sporting air suspensions, disc brakes and bespoke flat-design mudguards.

Only 500 Li126s have been produced, with the first presented to music and mod legend Paul Weller.

“We are very excited to be launching the Li126 Lambretta Bicicletta,” enthused Fisher Outdoor Leisure CEO Richard Allmark. “We are huge fans of Lambretta and as such have been faithful in our efforts to create a bicycle with style and class, that is in keeping with the brand heritage. Though the brand is vintage, the Li126 is a thoroughly modern bicycle. We have used the latest developments in bike technology and design to create a beautifully honed and high-performing ‘city cruiser’ bike. I’m delighted to announce that Fisher Outdoor plans further ranges of the Lambretta Bicicletta, and will announce further details in Spring 2010.”
