Four years after the last Vespa was launched, the Vespa patriarch – the GTS – has been introduced  by Piaggio in Italy. Manufactured only in Italy, the new Vespa GTS continues the legacy of the legendary ‘Vespone’, as all the largest body Vespas were christened.

The MY2023 Vespa GTS in four versions (GTS, GTS Super, GTS Supersport and GTS Supertech) is powered by two new liquid-cooled engines with EFI: the 125 i-get single-cylinder and 300 HPE (High Performance Engine). They deliver more than 23hp, tyhe most powerful yet in Vespa history, as per the iconic Italian scooter manufacturer.

The new engines are, according to Piaggio Group “are increasingly more technologically advanced and efficient in terms of limiting emissions and consumption.”

The body of the new GTS family, as has always been the case throughout Vespa history, is made strictly of steel: a sustainable material because it is 100% recyclable which guarantees unrivalled strength as well as unique safety and dynamism. This body, which is a Vespa worldwide exclusive, is now paired with an entirely new front suspension. Maintaining the traditional, single-arm layout, the system has been redesigned in terms of functionality to guarantee greater stability, especially at high speeds, and to improve comfort and handling, thanks to the new suspension calibration.

Designed, as always, around the human body, Vespa boasts ideal ergonomics and a natural riding position that helps make it extremely comfortable, enjoyable to ride and accessible to everyone. The new Vespa GTS further highlights the strong touring and even travelling vocation, offering a new seat with a superior comfort level even for the passenger and optimised ergonomics for easy footing on the ground at a standstill.

The Vespa GTS gets a keyless system to activate the ignition, TFT colour display in the SuperTech version and new instrumentation on all the other versions.
