The performance exhaust systems produced by Scooter & Service and DSE at the end of the last decade set new standards in the field of tuning Vespa 200cc motors. They were essential for the ever increasing number of set ups pushing out over 22 PS. Our reaction was long overdue. The exhaust developer responsible for the very successful system on our 150m sprinter took on the, for him largely unknown, subject of Vespa exhaust systems. Successfully! The answer he came up with? The 'SIP Performance 2.0'!
The main body of the 'SIP Performance 2.0' has been completely redesigned and is now noticeably more voluminous. The larger dimensions still allow the use of the scooters main stand and wider wheels / wider-section tyres. These systems are hand-welded at JL exhausts from either stainless or normal steel and then lacquered with a heat resistant varnish. The manifold is held in place at both ends by springs and the whole assembly is attached using a very solid mounting bracket that can withstand the vibrations caused by the silencer. This exhaust is compatible with both standard and tuned motors and according to set up, 18-32 PS and speeds of between 110 – 150 kph are easily achievable. This exhaust is available for use with a number of various silencer types, including carbon fibre, aluminium, black and stainless steel. Other SIP silencer units also combine well with this pipe, along with those produced by Scooter & Service.
This performance enhancing system also provides large amounts of torque and its power delivery remains constant throughout the rev range. Its performance kicks in lower down the rev range than other comparable exhausts, such as those produced by Newline or DSE. There is no noticeable lapse in delivery all the way through to fourth gear, with a similar maximum power output.
JL Guarantee: An automatic 3-years warranty from date of purchase is included, for all original purchasers, if your exhaust splits open at any time during 'normal' use (apart from grinding it along the curb or similar abuse) it can be returned to the place of purchase for repair or replacement.
Conclusion: The 'SIP Performance 2.0' represents an ideal solution for both road-going, touring scooters and also high-end, maximum power projects. This is the most powerful exhaust system that we presently have available.

Can be combined with wider-section tyres with use of the main-stand also still possible. Regrettably, this is not the case with the spare wheel, which cannot be left in its original position underneath the left sidepanel. For safe and enduring use of this exhaust the jetting and ignition timing should be checked and adjusted.
SIP–TIP : When combined with the original SI DELLORTO carb, the size of the main jet should be increased by at least 10 size grades. A MALOSSI 210cc cylinder, COSA clutch, a race or long-stroke crankshaft and a modified cylinder head are ideal in combination with this exhaust system. A Vespatronic race ignition, a reed-valved 30-36mm carb assembly and a high-end 'bell' crankshaft etc. will be able to boost the power output of your motor to 30 PS, and beyond!
Alex, SIP-man, February, 2013 : "A road-tuned PX 200 with a 210 MALOSSI,long-stroke crankshaft and a SI 24 carb set up delivered 21.2 PS with 23 Nm during tests in combination with this exhaust system. Unbelievable! This exhausts power delivery is brutal!"
Robert, SIP-man, February, 2013 : "My 210 motor set up including a 30mm carb received a power boost, in comparison with the previous version of this pipe, from 22.5 PS to a whopping 26.6 PS! That is 4 PS, only by swapping the exhaust. The torque was also increased by 2.9 Nm. The scooter now pulls like a tractor"
