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 which 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 that 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 very late 1968 specimen has many of the later typical features that were also found on the early DL models. These include rectangular front Innocenti badge, push in front fork buffers, grey plastic tool box, clip-on panels and silver hubs and rims. The engine is still completely standard with original 200 barrel, standard gears and original 20mm carburettor.
Discovered by an Italian collector in Sicily she is in her original Yellow Ochre colour which is now regarded as the rarest of all the SX200 factory colours. She has never been re-painted save for necessary touch ups performed during the professional conservation carried out by Rimini Lambretta Centre who are regarded as the best in the world for this work. The panels all fit very well. The seat is the original and is in exceptional original condition. Our consultant rode this scooter during our recent visit to the vendor and it performs 'like a new scooter'. This is a rare opportunity to obtain a highly sought after SX200 in a one off paint colour and in original condition.
