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.

In the iconic year of England's victory in the World Cup in 1966, this early version was produced and was originally sold in the USA, then exported to Australia where it was restored and then exported again to the UK in 2019. The scooter was UK registered in 2020. There are bills available to show the extent of the extensive engine rebuild. She is painted in a tasteful White with Fiat style Italian pinstripes. She has a nice Cuppini ‘Madrid’ style rear luggage carrier and inside leg shield spare wheel and carrier. The seat is the original Guilari with a good quality replacement cover. An SX200 instruction booklet is supplied with the current V5.
