Many regard the SX200 to be the finest scooter Innocenti produced, and possibly regarded as the best scooter ever made. The SX range retained most styling features of the TV 175/200 Series III that preceded it. The bodywork, however, was more angular and streamlined than that of the preceding LI models. Like the TV Series III, the headset housed a keyed ignition/light switch in the space where the standard LI had a simple kill switch. The SX200 had improved performance and gearing over the previous TV200 models. The SX is the quintessential Lambretta, they are extremely prized by collectors and the SX200 with its own uniquely styled panels and powerful motor is the absolute top of the scooter tree.

This mid-production example was first registered in Great Britain by motorcycle dealers Williamson and Peacey of Winchester on 26th June 1967 and sold to David Rogers on the 18th June 1968. It has been left in the will of David Rogers the sole owner of the scooter to our vendor's wife. She has allowed a picture of David riding it back in the day with her mother to be included in the history file and this is included the sale. As we understand it David restored it around 2010 with the help of a motorcycle club after many years of wishing to do so. At this time he also applied for the original number to be restored to the scooter successfully. We note that the scooter has many original parts and the original speedometer shows a credible 7,373 miles. This can be deduced particularly because the panels are in extremely good condition and most notably the original Giuliari seat still has its original red cover in strikingly superb condition with no rips or tears. The engine casing and gear levers also looked like they had had light use. There are a great deal of other original parts used including the original ignition switch number 117, toolbox lock and key and steering lock are all original. The engine is completely standard as a 200cc with the original SH1/20 carburettor and original long reach kick start. The scooter is well presented with attractive red side panels which are also original. The number plate has period-style vinyl numbers. This SX200 has been converted to 12v electrics but the original 6v flywheel and stator plate are included in the sale along with a large amount of spare parts and manuals (photographs to follow). Our consultant was able to start the scooter easily and also rode it on the road. It sounded and handled very well and all worked as it should at the time of consignment.
