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 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 1966 specimen has to be seen to be believed. Won by an Italian non-scooterist at the 1966 Milan Motor show he then passed the scooter to his son who also did not want to ride it. The scooter was then purchased by Nigel Cox, the owner and curator of the famous Weston Lambretta Museum in England in the 1990’s. The scooter was then sold to a mutual collector who passed it to the current owner. In all of this time it was stored in collections practically unused. It is almost impossible to find this top marque Lambretta in such untouched and superb original condition. On inspection the cables have never been moved and everything including the original seat is in A1 condition. This is a very rare opportunity to obtain one of the best examples of an original SX200 to be found anywhere.
