First Ride: Vespa GTS 300 Ultimate urban commuter?

Not we have all been sitting waiting for a scooter that had juice to wheelie off the line, but it be nice to have an urban-commuter that had a real dose of Storied Italian brand delivers just that its new GTS 300 Super.

First, a bit of history. The 300 GTS is the of years of modern development started in 2000, when Piaggio introduced the GT 200. Up to time, the Vespa had been along with no major for 15 years or so. The 200 refreshed the brand’s in the best Vespa tradition, the company a true injection of new to its essence and concept.

The chassis retained the stamped-sheet-metal construction, but with torsional numbers greatly exceeding of the previous iteration. Inside a brilliant liquid-cooled, sohc Single teamed with a CVT transmission, replacing (at last!) the hand-operated four-speed unit in use the dawn of Vespa just World War II.

The GT 200 upgraded the Vespa to a new appropriate for the third millennium. The big update, the GTS 250, added spice to the concept. It was quicker, and featured a revised front-end that improved steering while retaining the traditional layout.

A totally revised, leading-link suspension would have the virtues of the chassis in terms of response, stability and all-around quality, but that would eliminated a traditional Vespa hallmark. The following version, the GTS was so brilliant that it seemed to the final evolution of the Vespa It retained the traditional front-end but sported reduced rake enhanced the precision of the steering and the engine’s performance was terrific.

The new engine is outstanding. Peak only increased from 21 to 22 but torque has been boosted 14.8 ft.-lbs. at 6500 rpm to ft.-lbs. at just 5000 This makes engine superb, almost to a fault!

actually got to use restraint with the when leaving lights the 300 Super tends to wheelie if the rider sits right at the of the seat. And a wheelie from a this short—especially one notorious for a weight distribution heavily to the rear—happens pretty fast, so is advised. But even part-throttle will make the Super a top at the drags down the streets of

In fact, a taller final-drive would not kill one bit of the Super’s with the added benefit of fuel mileage and perhaps a higher top speed.

Compact, and as practical as ever, a Vespa sense as a thrifty and stylish of transportation. There are no current to import the new GTS 300 Super to the states, is a shame because it represents a new of excitement and performance to the ultimate commuter.
