Although there is no doubt that in motorcycles the transition to the electric motor will not bring many advantages because the cost of fuel is not as high as in cars, the fact is that the future of motorcycles, especially in urban level, too. become electrification. And the Lambretta Elettra which has already been presented, will be sold next year, which is a futuristic looking motorcycle, with the air of a Tesla Cybertruck, and perfect performance for the city.

It is not surprising that an electric motorcycle has a futuristic look. The strange thing is that it is like this one Lambretta a brand we usually recognize as a classic in the world of two wheels, on a level similar to the Vespa.
And although it is true that we still see a traditional structure typical of a scooter, the truth is that the finish is very futuristic.
With the wind in a Tesla Cybertruck
It’s easy for the motorcycle to remind us of the Tesla Cybertruck. On the one hand, The frame and body of the motorcycle are made of cast aluminum and steel.
But again, the finish is a pretty matte black silver with some cyan blue details and several glowing elements.
The motorcycle looks like it was brought from another century, although the truth is that it will arrive next year and can be sold.

In mode the standard reaches 70 kilometers per hour and promises a distance of about 70 kilometers while in mode deportivo reach the speed of 80 kilometers/hour, reducing the autonomy to an average of 62 kilometers.
However, the certification of autonomy of WMTC established autonomy in those 105 kilometers so for urban uses we have more than enough.
Power, price and availability
The average power provided by the motorcycle is about 4.3 kW, with a maximum power delivery of 11 kW which means that, as expected, it is suitable for use with the vehicle license to enter the motorcycle category similar to 125 cc.
The bike was officially announced as Lambretta’s first fully electric motorcycle at EICMA. Although it is called 2024 no one knows definite release date, nor the price it will have although it is expected that it will not be placed in entry-level scooters, but as a premium option for those who want an urban electric motorcycle.
