Ok so what does this bike do well? Quite a lot actually, it makes useful power and is comfortable to ride. It will overtake easily enough and has no problem going up hills. The handling is admirable although it could use a set of better tyres than the ones fitted to the test bike I rode. It also manages to stop fairly well with its disc front and drum rear. I must make comment that a bike of this price, retro styling aside should have discs front and rear. There are a few advances over the original version of this machine, the 2 stroke engine now pre mixes the oil using separate oil reservoir and there is a somewhat quirky but still functional electric start to compliment it’s kick lever. The dash is easy to read and gives some useful warning lights and a fuel gauge. The detuned and air-cooled 200cc two-stroke engine sounds incredible and will chug along just about indefinitely. There are PX’s out there with well over 100,000kms on the clock still getting around just nicely thank you.

The lockable front glove box is quite large and very useful. The indicator switching system could do with an upgrade, it works ok, but with a bit of refinement, like fitting a slider rather than an actual press down switch it would be much better. The Vespa PX200 definitely manages to look pretty damn cool; whether it is cooler than newer interpretations of this particular style is a matter of personal taste.
