NEW 35+ BHP PERFORMANCE PACKAGE SOON ON OFFER!
In an unusual move, a new performance package is about to be brought to market using EXISTING components and with a very specific ‘hi-level power spread’ tune. While a few companies are focusing on manufacturing brand new bespoke kits and components, one very sharp individual has managed to combine the exact blend of items required, along with a few specific modifications, to produce a 238cc Lambretta performance package.
Riders returning from a jaunt on the test bike have been noted as describing the power delivery as ‘the Holy Grail’ and ‘remarkable’. The package, which consists of cylinder kit (inc head and piston), 62/115 race crank, special reed block, a tour exhaust, bearings, seals and a 27mm carb (yes 27mm) has been seen to hit 38bhp and 27lb-ft in testing, but the retailer is quoting 35bhp and 25lb-ft to be conservative. Despite the high figures, the kit is pulling from tick-over, with almost no ‘pre-powerband lull’ and peaking at a relatively low 7850rpm which makes it very rideable. Cost is expected to be around £1695; a full report is to follow soon.
