The PX200 is back !!!!!
The legendary PX200 was discontinued in 2002, the unfortunate victim of ever stringent emmision laws leaving only the 125cc version available to purchase.
New 200cc engines were still available for a short period, but quickly sold out and became ever more scarce, leaving the only alternative as an expensive build from scratch or taking your chances on E-bay with a second hand one. In 2010, Piaggio ceased production of the 200cc crankcases making new engine builds impossible.
That seemed to have sealed the 200′s fate.
However, a couple of years ago, Italian tuning giant Malossi acquired the tooling and started to re-manufacture the PX200 engine casings, once again making new engine building an option.
Despite the PX200 being a “dead” model for over twelve years, it is still suprising how many phone calls we still receive, enquiring if the scooter can still be bought new.
With such demand still apparent, we decided to look into building a new engine. The main problem we faced was the overall cost of all the parts required, which would run well over the £2000 mark at current list prices, meaning supplying either a new engine or complete scooter, would be prohibitively expensive.
The only viable solution was to base the conversion on an existing new PX125, so that all the common shared parts (ignition system, gearbox parts etc) could be used, keeping the cost down.
The result is a brand new PX200 with all the performance advantages over a 125 or 150cc, but still offering all the reliability, convenience and economy that only a standard scooter can. The savings on using common parts means we can also lower the price by a thousand pounds to £4499.
One available to buy now, in Midnight Blue, brand new. Also available to order in all current colour’s or as a Ron Daley Special Edition.
