Scooters are basically two-wheel run-abouts with the engine set under the seat, connected directly to the rear axle. The original Lambretta scooter, produced by Italian manufacturer Innocenti, went defunct in 1972, only to be bought by Scooters India. Fiat owns the Innocenti name and rights today. Lambretta scoopers are manufactured today by various companies throughout the world, in France, Germany, Spain, India, Brazil, Taiwan, Columbia, and Argentina.
