First electronic ignition on a Vespa.
After the Vespa 180’s great success, in 1972 Piaggio presents for the first time the Vespa 200cc. It has immediate success, and the “vespa fans” are even ready to wait for months but to have it. In the same year, the advertising campaign “Le Sardomobili” appears, with the following pay-off: “two powerful and brisk wheels, with quick reflexes, two “rally” wheels pushed by the new 12 hp engine which reaches 5,700 rpm, two mighty wheels that zoom safely up to 110 km/h.”

From an esthetical point of view, the Vespa Rally 200 is immediately recognizable for its adhesive strips on the side bags and on the mudguard. On the side, the writing “electronic” states that the powerful engine is started electronically, a technological solution adopted by Piaggio for the first time on this model.

The Vespa Rally 200 was produced from 1972 to 1979 in over 41,700 samples.

The Vespa Rally 200, Model 180 derived from the rally, is a scooter designed for fast motion. Was the model of Vespa fastest and most powerful ever built by Piaggio house, produced by the 1972 to 1979 boasted a speed of 116 km / h and 12 hp .
The line of 200 (next to 180) was enriched with strips of color White hoods and fenders, which were to indicate the quality of the electronics (there were written electronic) that lacked the ancestor 180.
Rally 200 was one of the models to be equipped with power electronics and optional boasted the mixer automatically.
One of the most reliable and sought vespas.
