Lambretta, LML Star, and Kinetic Luna, once beloved scooters from yesteryears, are set to reenter the Indian market. These legendary two-wheelers, known for their style, simplicity, and reliability, are making a comeback to cater to the growing demand for retro-inspired scooters.
1. Lambretta: A Timeless Classic
Lambretta, the Italian scooter brand that gained popularity in India during the 1960s, is set to make a grand comeback. With its timeless design and vintage charm, the Lambretta scooters evoke a sense of nostalgia among enthusiasts.
The modern-day Lambretta models are expected to blend classic aesthetics with contemporary technology, offering a unique riding experience.

2. LML Star: Reliability and Simplicity
LML Star, another legendary name in the Indian scooter market, is making a comeback after a hiatus. LML (Lohia Machinery Limited) scooters were renowned for their robust build quality, fuel efficiency, and low maintenance costs.
The new LML Star is an e-scooter, aimed to carry forward the legacy of its predecessors while incorporating modern features such as telescopic front suspension, monoshock rear suspension, digital instrument console, alloy wheels, and futuristic maxi-scooter styling. LML Star e-scooter will likely appeal to riders seeking a reliable and hassle-free commuting option with a touch of nostalgia.
3. Kinetic Luna: A Favourite Returns
Kinetic Luna, the iconic moped that captured the hearts of many Indian riders in the 1980s and 1990s, is set to make a comeback as well. Known for its lightweight construction, fuel efficiency, and ease of use, the Luna was a popular choice for daily commuting.
The revived Kinetic Luna – to be christened eLuna – will retain its characteristic simplicity, making them ideal for urban mobility. With an updated design and modern enhancements, Kinetic eLuna is likely to attract a new generation of riders looking for a practical and stylish mode of transportation.
