We did ride the latest Vespa including the Vespa GTS 300 Super a 22-horsepower, 278 cc engine. Shown the GTS rides mostly like a Vespa: It’s smooth and to maneuver.

The company claims a top speed of 80

We also rode the company’s model, the GTV 250, which has as power as the GTS, but less so it doesn’t jump suddenly a start.

Riding these scoots Central Park and the surrounding streets reminded of the advantages of a simple vehicle that’s to weave through downtown and also park in a dense environment. Dicing with trucks and seas of yellow in every lane was a little too at times, but there is clear in the scooting way of city life.
