New CASA LAMBRETTA 80cc cylinder for lui and J50 replaces the 75cc X3

Drawing original Inocentti

new cylinder Lui and J50

Here we have put the 75 ccm tuning cylinder for the lui & Junior 50 models through its paces: CLICK! 

Since its appearance in 2009, the 75 has been an extremely popular means of giving the 50cc engines a boost.

The successor is now in the starting blocks, the 80 ccm CASA LAMBRETTA cylinder for those models.

Who now thinks: "WOW, 5 ccm more... What's going on there?" Not sooo fast!

In issue 22 (November / December 2020) of the ingenious ScooterNova Magazine by Andy there is the following report with the caption below:

"EXCLUSIVE – How Innocenti planned to factory-tune the Lui range"

Innocenti's technical drawings are dated May 24, 1968 and titled CILINDRO MOTORE 75cc SOLUZIONE with 3° TRAVASO bezeichnet.

The overcurrent system has been optimized with two finger ports and corresponding recesses in the piston, and the cylinder delights with increased torque in the medium speed range and revs further.

The cylinder from the technical drawings will reach us very shortly. Vittorio Tessera from CASA LAMBRETTA turned Innocenti's plans into reality and made the 80cc cylinder a reality:

As soon as the new cylinder Lui and J50 is with us, it will be put to the test and will compete against the original 75 ccm lui cylinder and the old 75 ccm CASA LAMBRETTA cylinder, then we can report in detail.
