LML (re)launches Select 150cc four stroke scooter in Goa!

on

Lohia Machinery Limited, a.k.a. LML is a scooter maker that hit its zenith in the nineties when its scooter range in collaboration with Piaggio of Italy was a high quality alternative to the likes of the Bajaj Chetaks and Bravos of this world. As the bottom of the scooter market blew off in the late nineties, to be replaced by commuter 100cc four stroke motorcycles, LML was slow to see the change coming and in due course of time, had to go belly up in India. That said, the scooter maker continued to export its range of scooters to the European and other export markets across the world.

In the early noughties, at about the 2003-04 period, LML made a comeback to India as the Delhi market comprising of the National Capital Region(NCR) continued to show high demand for the traditional hand geared-side engined scooter. With Bajaj Auto missing-in-action, after choosing to concentrate on economy and premium motorcycles, LML was the only traditional scooter maker, apart from Honda with its Eterno 150, in India poised to take advantage of the latent demand that the NCR region continued to demonstrate for the traditional scooters. LML began selling a limited number of its four stroke 150cc scooter offerings in this market.

Now, LML is slowly (re)expanding its footprint to markets that it was once strong in. Goa is one such market and after restarting sales in the coastal state known for its mountains and beaches in 2011, LML has just expanded its portfolio by launching the LML Select four stroke scooter in Goa. The LML Select four stroke scooter displaces 147.5cc and produces a power-torque output of 8.7 Bhp-11.3 Nm. This power and torque output makes the LML Select the most powerful scooter in India. The engine is mated to a four speed hand operated gearbox.

LML claims a whopping fuel economy of 80 Kmpl, which the Select might very well be capable of delivering, for the scooter produces its peak power at 6,250 rpm and more importantly its peak torque at a low 4,250 rpm. LML has priced the four stroke Select scooter at a price of INR 53,475 ex-showroom Goa. Apart from the Select, LML also sells four stroke versions of the LML NV and the NV LS scooters in the Goan market, with both scooters featuring the same four stroke engine powering the Select. These scooters are also available in the NCR region of India. All LML scooters sold in India currently, come with a 30,000 Km/3 year warranty.

Going forward, LML also has plans of expanding to other scooter friendly regions in India and also is mulling the launch of the 200cc four stroke Star scooter. You can read about it here.

    Nice to know that LML is resurfacing in the market. I always thought it had shut shop and long gone. Ny dad was among the early buyers of LML Vespa ‘Select’ and it was lot better than Bajaj of those days. I even did a couple long distance rides on it. It continues to be in use until this day. Lack of spars is a major issue with. Now that it might return to market is a good news. But, I wonder if the entry of Piaggio’s Vespa scooters will have an unintended positive effect on LML. If LML introduces gearless scooters, it would do the company a lot good. I still don’t mind using a geared one from LML but the only grouse was frequent snapping of clutch cables.

    Select 150cc four stroke scooter will launch in Bangalore or not ? pl give me feed back on this. fed up of asking details about dealers address in Bangalore since more than one year

      Dear Kuls,

      LML India has not released any information about launching the Select 150 4T in Bangalore. It is highly unlikely that this scooter will be launched. Thereby, I would suggest that you look at other options in the market.

      Cheers,

      Jay

    R/Sir, Humble suggestion , what an idea please.
    Today most of people use motorcycle or autogear-gearless scooter like activa,access,vespa,wego,etc.
    A lot of trouble in this scooter due to small wheel.
    New model of scooter like motorcycle and autogear or gearless. In Motorcycle too much bebefit,large wheel,engine in meedle place,easy for long drive,
    if less air or puncture in bike’s any wheel, no trouble to reach destination,in scooter too much difficult and drive or to draw just like snakewalk.
    sorry for the trouble. with best regards
    Ila.K.Mandaliya

    I have purchased a New 4 Stroke LML NV Scooter in 2011 December from Goa , and riding/using it in Mumbai, i am very much happy with the performance of the scooter, till date it has run about 13,000 kms without any problem, for spares i do get help in a very prompt/ polite manner from B N Thakur Panjim. Great Scooter with Gear and Good Road Grip. Average one can’t specify in Mumbai dirty traffic with constant braking and accerlation.
