Lambretta SX 200
The Lambretta Special X is derived from the Special and TV models. The TV (GT) 200 was superseded by the SX 200, while the SX 150 replaced the 150 Special. The exciting and timeless shape of the bodywork was mainly retained. The main difference between the SX 150 and the Special was the colour scheme. The silver paint is replaced by off-white or apple green (which apparently was not in great demand). In addition the SX 150 features a chromed mudguard crest and a polished horn grille. Both SX 150 and 200 have a large “X” plus the respective capacity stated over the Special badge on the legshields. The rear frame badge not reads “Innocenti” on both models.
Contrary to the SX 150, the SX 200 is easy to be distinguished from its predecessor. The colour used is Bianco Nuovo again, however the side-panels were redesigned and now boast large flashes from polishes alloy with a “200” cast on. The dynamic appeal is unequalled the SX 200 panels are probably the fastest looking side-panels of all times. Further to that, a longer lickstart was used which is unique to the SX 200.
The catching slogan “Give yourself SX-appeal” perfectly suits these beautiful scooters and underlines the potential of the SX. Another clear statement was the new speed facias reading up to 120 kph at the 150 and 140 kph at the 200.
Towards the end of the production the side-panel handles were replaced by steel clips under the panels, the same system to be used by the later DL. Also, the steel toolbox was replaced by a plastic item and the rectangular Innocenti badge superseded the previous shield. The last models of the SX 200 had the wheel-rims and brake-drums painted silver.
In January 1969 the production of the SX 200 was stopped with 20.783 scooters made.
