VESPA 300 GTS Super Review

As happens in the vehicle business, engines find their way existing models. Thus, the 300 GTS is simply a “Vespa 250 GTS” a bigger engine. A 278 cc liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine, as it happens, about 22 horsepower and 16.5 of torque, developed at 7,500 and rpm respectively.

I’m not sure the “Vespa” gets to 7,500 rpm, there is no tachometer. But it does get to an 85 mph on the 405 freeway when I duck my down to reduce wind This is good enough to you in the diamond lane without a pickup truck driver down your neck.

pretty stellar performance for a scooter like this, it? And that’s the thing about the 300 It isn’t one of those maxi-scooters you see pounding the pavement with porky weight and casting a shadow under the huge

No,the 300 GTS is about the size have always been, a short 55-inch wheelbase and manhandled 326-pound dry weight.

you never get to feel, since can actually ride a dry motorcycle. You to put the oil, coolant and fuel in first. But you can certainly sense how the machine is while pushing it in the garage.

With a lot of its weight low in the stamped steel body, the wheels around almost as as a bicycle.

Despite the compact tall riders can sit on the Vespa feeling like a monkey on a The controls are at a reasonable reach, and the don’t come back one’s knees. The thing easily, too, feeling balanced during low-speed maneuvers.

And when the light goes it steps off the line with a smooth push that leaves the cars for …. As is with a continuously variable (CVT), the speed increases a dramatic increase in engine which makes the acceleration Think zero-to-60mph in about 11 and you’ve got the idea.

Maybe doesn’t sound all that compared to test results you see in CAR and but the simple fact is that drivers launch in a rather fashion, and their responses that sharp, either. One guy in a Aerostar van went flat out one traffic light as it changed, and the was still ahead at an indicated 60.

important than the little fairly surprising pace is its For a machine that steers so in urban situations, it manages speeds with complete Sure, the steering is super and you don’t want to be hanging on it or it around.

But the Vespa tracks ahead when left to its own devices.

The you get from the trailing-link front end and dual shocks that the engine/transmission/hub unit at the rear is commendably plush over surface regularities. Bigger do move the 12-inch wheels than the suspension travel accommodate without displacing the and these come through as well-damped movements at the bars.

But stamped-steel body is stiff and and it absorbs stuff like without exhibiting any nastiness. the chassis is not much upset by at speed, you just keep on With so much unsprung at the rear wheel, some motions back there are over big heaves, but the machine recovers its composure.

Another surprise is how well the goes around corners. It not unlike a real motorcycle cranked into a bend, and I that in the kindest way. You to be trying quite hard to get the tang to touch down, and I forsee many prospective riders inclined to ride hard.

We do this so you don’t to.

Equipped with disc on both wheels, the 300 GTS slows when both levers are firmly. It doesn’t take effort, either. Even with moderate hand should be able to generate retardation. This facility in dynamic department is part of the mission.

It needs to do everything well, and be for anyone to operate.

And it is. You just on, switch on, and go. The seat is fairly and well padded, and it seemed comfortable during the trips we on the bike.

Fold down passenger pegs deploy necessary, and while they afford the same support as the floorboard, the rear seat just about as comfy as the one.

The whole thing up to reveal an underseat compartment, and it isn’t quite wide to accommodate a large full-face it will happily swallow helmet styles and a lot of other besides. Just no pets, There’s a big sticker warning that in case some donor figures it might be the place for little Garfield.

The 300 GTS we rode was the Super variant, features black wheels, red springs, and a chrome passenger rail. It retails for $6,200, and that may sound high, is an iconic brand, and the GTS 300 has the broad to handle virtually any transportation
