There are two names of legendary scooter manufacturers who can be said to be the pioneers of the scooter industry in the world, namely Piaggio with the Vespa scooter brand while the other is Innocenti with Lambretta.

Since the beginning, the competition aroma was very thick between these two Italian scooter manufacturers. One of them was when Piaggio with the Vespa Siluro managed to break the speed record known as 'The Flying Kilometers' on February 9, 1951. Seeing those achievements then sparking the interest of Innocenti to do the same by making an almost similar Siluro scooter shortly after that in the same year and named the Lambretta Red Bullet.

The Lambretta-made scooter has a very aerodynamic shape like a bullet and made of rubber, metal, and plexiglass. The Red Bullet was designed by Pierluigi Torre by using the finest of Italian scooter engineering at the time. It was pushing by tremendous 2-stroke engine power through the 3-speed gearbox to break the record.

After completion, the Red Bullet was prepared to break the land speed record in the scooter category with the speed targets of exceeding 200 kph, so the manufacturer appointed Romolo Ferri as the rider. His toughest competition is Piaggio’s Vespa Siluro. But the real challenge is winning against himself, as he already reached 195.8 kilometers per hour a few months earlier, on French soil. And this time, his goal is to exceed 200.
This historic moment occurred on August 8, 1951, on a stretch of highway between Munich and Ingolstadt, Germany. At that time, the Red Bullet ridden by Ferri managed to shoot through the air with a speed of up to 201 kilometers per hour (124.8 mph). Since then, Lambretta has established itself as the chosen racing vehicle of its category for the decades to come.
This of course becoming a pride for the Lambretta's scooter manufacturer, Innocenti; also to the designer, Pierluigi Torre; and of course for Romolo Ferri, who continues to set records at full speed on his Lambretta Red Bullet.

Kept spur your adrenaline on the power of the two-wheeled monster and stay alive with true safety riding. May God will forgive Your sins and so does the cops...... *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | ITALIANWAYS.COM | RETROSPECTIVEMODERNISM | THECHICANE.COM | HEMMINGS]
