1964 Lambretta TV200 GT

Registration Number: GOE8B

Mileage: 4672

There is no more an evocative machine in the Lambretta world than the GT200. Devised specifically for the UK Market by Lambretta Concessionaires, it was the first Lambretta of 200cc Capacity in order to fulfill demand for the UK scooterist who was notorious for being more of a sporting rider than the average Italian.

Innocenti originally hadn’t ever intended to go for a higher capacity model than the TV175, which was the top of the range scooter at the time and the Series 3 Model featured the first ever disc brake on any motorcycle; a huge leap forward in design at the time. However, Peter Agg, Managing Director of Lambretta Concessionaires asked Innocenti to build a special model and although Innocenti initially refused, they then agreed on the basis that all warranty claims were handled by the Croydon based firm.

Mr Agg’s foresight paid off, and the TV200 (marketed in the UK as the GT200) became the model of choice for any aspiring Lambretta owner from 1963 onwards. Interestingly, the GT was never sold in Italy and only built for the export markets. It was so successful however, that Innocenti then decided to produce the SX200 as it’s replacement, which although considered more refined, was never as quick as the GT and didn’t quite catch on as well due to being introduced a little too late in 1966, when sales started to drop off for the scooter market in general. However, the formidable GT200’s reputation has remained unbeaten, having found favour in the UK as the machine to have for the aspiring Mod or Scooterist and as a result values are now higher than any other machine.

This example in its original colour of white  is presented in perfect fully restored condition.  It fires up readily & is a pleasure to ride with the 4 gears being selected on the left hand handlebar grip.

Little more need be said as the scooter is in simply perfect condition thoughout having resided in a collection of pristine machines of the era.
