REVIEW: Test Ride, GTS 300 Super — Updated more photos.


#: 10,907

The Vespa GTS 300 Super is now the displacement engine ever to be to a scooter with the Vespa on it. I was fortunate to have the opportunity to a test ride of a few hours of a very new, not yet broken in 300 only 17 kms on the odometer, thank you What can I say about the styling than if you are fond of the classic but Vespa lines, you will this scooter.

The addition of the on the right rear cowls back many years to its kin, a classy look for fast bike. Other from the previous GTS including, trim around the front crest, black ring the headlight, two toned wheels, a designed horn cast, red cover, white piping on the and an analog dash with a face. Overall, it is stylish, and sporty, I love it.

One quick press of the starter and the 278 cc fuel injected, liquid four valve engine to life. Roars? Yes I said

Another change is that the tipped exhaust has a new voice. engine now roars and is growly in a sportier way. It isn’t the roar of my Leo Vince pipe on my own but I’m not sure I would getting a LV pipe if I owned a

I like the new sound effects.

So how is it to you ask? Well it is very much like my GTS 250, means it is a nimble yet powerful that easily handles the day to day of city riding. However, one big difference between the 300 and my 250 is the torque. If you at the engine’s stats you will nary a difference between the 250 and 300 in of horsepower.

Vespa did not tune this to reach a higher top end, they tuned this to be the urban assault scooter. The GTS 300 has torque, that is on demand This is very very from the first time you the throttle. The 300 is like a crouching ready to pounce.

So much so, I felt that if I shifted my towards the back of the seat a little bit more, I could lift the front wheel off the and wheelie it. Trust me, I didn’t to find out if I could handle a so I didn’t try it out. However, the really seems to be there for it if you to want to try such a thing.

So this scooter really to run. You will beat scooters and cars easily off the at a light. The power comes on away. This is a very trait if you spend most of time riding in town. As all GTS’s, it has a capable, solid that easily absorbs the and lumps that plague our

The GTS is a well balanced scooter is easy to ride and fun to lean corners.

How is it on the highway? Well, was very windy and this engine was not broken in. As well, it did not a windscreen on it unlike my own GTS which has a This scooter easily 120 km/hr to keep up with in the passing lane. However, due to the conditions and lack of windscreen, I did not it up faster than that

I would like to try it out on the 401 sometime the engine is broken in and with a I really feel that a flyscreen makes the scooter through the air better and gives it aerodynamics. I am much more at those speeds on my flyscreen GTS 250.

So as far as highway riding it gets you up to passing speeds ease, but I don’t know the top speed is yet.

Quality of The quality of the Vespa is like of other Vespas, solid, built and with quality I like the way the switch gear when you do simple things turn on the indicators or turn on the beam. It feels and is quality. The of this scooter are excellent.

There is sufficient leg room for who are long of leg, yet the seat is sufficiently low for those with short inseams (I have a 29 There is space under the for two 3/4 helmets but it will not fit a full helmet.

I guess the question is would I trade my GTS 250 in for this new GTS In short, the answer is no. The difference in albeit great, is not enough to me want to trade in my GTS.

I prefer the extra information dash on the 250 gives as well the 300 doesn’t have, things as outside temperature, tachometer and odometer. However, that said, if my current ride the GTS, but was instead the GT200, I there would be another Vespa for sale and a new GTS Super 300 in my

Thanks for reading my review and forgive it’s short I have never written a and I am not a professional test rider.
