This US-market Rally 200 has been given a custom ‘60s style makeover at the customer’s request. We have replaced the block-letter badges with Rally 180 script-type badging, done away with the large front and rear turn signals in favor of the tidy German-market Hella-brand bar-end signals. And, in keeping with the ‘60s, Rally 180 theme, we have omitted the Rally 200 stripe decals, but the fantastic Femsatronic-ignited 200cc motor still roars under the sleek, uncluttered panel-work.
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.
