Vespa GTS 300 Supertech: the most powerful 'Vespone' in history

Two engines drive the new versions that arrive in the eighth of a liter and in the 300c: The 125 i-Get and the 300 HPE, for the four new versions of the Gran Turismo of the Italian brand -the GTS, GTS Super, GTS SuperSport and GTS Supertech-. All are renewed for this fall, among other things, with new calipers and brake master cylinders from Brembo and a keyless ignition system.

The body of these GTS is still made of steel, as it has been since 1946, its generous section tires are mounted on 12-inch wheels and the suspension, which remains on the side, has been revised to gain stability now that these GTS are capable of rolling faster and faster. As part of this safety review, the Piaggio group's ASR traction control is part of the standard package for that generation, which adds, along with the aforementioned new Brembo brake calipers and master cylinders, a new Bosch unit for the abs.

Aesthetically, from the front, the new GTS have been retouched and now the side light assembly that acts as daytime running lights and intermittent lights (LEDs) is integrated into the shield thanks to the elimination of the visible fixings. The tie also changes, more modern with smaller friezes, the grilles on the sides of the shield and the front fender, much sharper. The also characteristic metallic profile that surrounds the bodywork comes in different finishes depending on the version.

Other changes? The handlebar, with its also characteristic round headlight (led), is new, wider and with repositioned brake levers, and the controls are now grouped into two chromed electric blocks that recall the change in the handlebar of the Vespa tradition. along with new grips and mirrors. Behind, the group of headlights also enjoys its particular retouch with reduced LED turn indicators and a rear position light with a somewhat more squared light profile.

With an increasing level of finishes throughout the range, the family's access engine -with 14CV of maximum power at 8,750 revolutions per minute-, has the RISS (Regulator Inverter Start

On the other hand, those who opt for the large option will find the latest evolution of the 300hpe single-cylinder engine (High Performance Engine) with liquid cooling, guarantor of all the advances of the group in this generation of propellant with its Magneti Marelli control unit. Last generation MIUG4. Its power is 23.8 hp at 8,250 rpm, with a maximum torque of 26 Nm at 5,250 rpm and capable of doing up to 30.3 km per liter of gasoline in the aforementioned WMTC cycle.

The connectivity system, the already famous Vespa MIA -mounted as standard on the Vespa GTS SuperSport and this SuperTech- allows the telephone to be connected to the Vespa's on-board electronic system via Bluetooth, offering the user exclusive functions through the app. In addition, in the case of this Vespa GTS SuperTech, the color TFT screen (which is also mounted on the 125cc version, while the others retain the classic analog tachometer under which there is now a three-inch LCD screen) also works as a tool navigation, with the route previously established in the Vespa App, by means of pictogram indications.

This SuperTech version with the 300 hpe engine is at the top of the family range - its price starts at 7,499 euros - with its carpet and courtesy light under the seat. The access GTS starts at 5,999 euros.
