In the last time of Siambretta, Siam wanted to use the popularity of the Siambretta 125 standar model and decided to design and manofacture an open frame version of the Siambretta 175 TV. The result of this was the Siambretta “Super Standar” 175 AV, the only Siambretta model designed and manofactured 100% in Argentina. This model has subtle but marked differences with its bigger sister as the glove box and fuel tank, legshield and its typical front light, among others.
Although there are not convincing evidente, it’s believed that the acronym “AV” would mean “Argentina Veloce”, according to its close relation with the Siambretta -or Lambretta- 175 “TV” (Turismo Veloce)
