The Rally 200 was the final incarnation of the “Vespa Sport” series. Produced from 1972 to 1977 it is considered by many to be the ultimate “best of all worlds” Vespa, combining the smooth curves of the ‘60s with the power and reliability of a “modern” 200cc, rotary valve engine. This basic engine, with only very subtle upgrades over the years, was also used in the “boxier” P200 Vespas produced in various forms from 1977 until 2005.


The example shown here was restored by us to 100% concours correct European-market spec. A true ‘70s masterpiece, exactly as the designers intended.
