SP Developments: Recent Progress

SP Lambretta

Within the last year we have been developing the new ecu and continually updating the software for the running of the twin fuel/oil injection system. We are currently up to 450+ power runs on dyno and over 1000 road miles.

We are still running the 172cc 4 speed which is giving good level of performance and speed up to 8500rpm.

New inlet manifold has been cast for secondary injection over 5000 rpm and is fitted to 172cc.

New crankshaft and flywheel have been designed and are being manufactured for testing at new level cc.
