LML showcased its range of gorgeous retro-modern scooters including its first automatic scooter, Star 125cc 4T Automatica, at EICMA 2012 in Milan

LML may have shut shop in India but, their scooters have been creating quite a splash in international markets. At the ongoing 2012 EICMA motorshow in Milan, the company showcased their range of scooters, the LML Star Light along with the newly introduced Star 125cc 4T Automatica. The cute, bright coloured, retro-inspired scooters from LML were hard to miss despite the presence of big, brute machines from Ducati, Aprillia, etc at the show. The Star Light range has engine options ranging from 50cc to 125cc in the 2-stroke segment and from 125cc to 200cc in the 4-stroke segment. All scooters are equipped with a 4-speed manual gearbox. However, the Star 125cc 4T Automatica, as the name suggests, is powered by a 4-stroke, 125cc engine mated to a variator (automatic) transmission. Sadly, LML is unlikely to field this range of super cool, beautiful scooters in India.

The Star 125cc 4T Automatica is LML’s first attempt in the automatic scooter segment. The styling of the scooter is very retro and in tune with its vintage-styled Star Deluxe range of scooters. The 4T Automatica is powered by a 4-stroke, 125cc engine producing 6.8PS of power at 8000rpm and employs a Variator transmission, which was developed and provided by Adler. 

 

To reduce the weight of the scooter, the frame is made of welded steel pipes which are integrated into the sheet metal body. The weight reduction has enabled the LML to be more maneuverable and agile. A noticeable change is that the rear brake is no longer operated by pedal on the footrest. Instead, it’s done via a brake lever on the left handle like in conventional automatic scooters. To improve the practicality of the Star Automatica, the fuel capacity has been increased to 7 litres, and the company claims a fuel efficiency figure of 46 kmpl. The scooter has been unveiled in four variants: Classic, Glamour, Vintage and Prestige. Also, a variety of colour combinations will be provided with the option of customisation. The Star 125cc 4T will be available at a special price of €2,250 (Rs 1.57 lakh) when it launches in December 2012.
