Lot details

Registration No: NOP 193F
Frame No: SX200 845460
Engine No: SX200 845862
CC: 198
MOT: Exempt

  • Italian SX200 with correct numbers
  • Imported into the UK and first registered in 1998
  • Described as running well
  • V5C for use on UK roads.

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 head-set housed a key ignition/light 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 with its own uniquely styled panels and powerful engine.

This later 1968 example appears to have been imported in 1998, according to the V5 information that we have seen. The current owner has had the scooter for 18 months. She has been converted to a 12v ignition and our consultant was able to see the scooter running and ride it on the road at the time of consignment. With its original engine, we believe that this is still a standard 200 machine. The side panels fit well and the original Giuliari seat frame has an attractive Green and Cream cover. We believe the KMH speedometer is original and is showing an impressive 48,000km, evidencing regular use. The disc brake appears to be original and standard. ‘NOP 193F’ is offered with a number of older MOTs and appears to support regular use over the years.
