2013 Vespa GTS 300ie Super Review

2013 Vespa GTS 300ie Super

Sporty and racy for the open road...

The Vespa GTS 300 ie Super is the fastest most technologically advanced Vespa ever.

Luxurious ride; highway power.

Redefining the commuting experience. The classic, unique Vespa style is combined with a distinctly sporty and modern personality, giving the clean Vespa lines a decidedly rugged look. With its sporty design, the Vespa GTS 300 Super embodies the style, convenience, safety and sturdiness of the Vespa brand. With an ultra-modern, powerful 4-valve liquid-cooled engine, electronic injection and Euro3 approval, what sets the Vespa GTS 300 Super apart is the incredible flexibility and exuberance of the engine.

Vespa, inside the steel body beats the heart of a gladiator’

One look at the 300 Super says it all; superior performance, clean lines and uncluttered instrumentation. This trim Italian built champion carries no excess weight and is designed to impress with the industry leading 300cc EFI engine and its unmistakable sports styling.

Features include chrome rear grab rail, blacked out trim, underseat storage, lockable glovebox and two tone wheels.

Vespa GTS 300 i.e. Super presents itself as a distinctive choice among GT scooters. It is the only maxi-scooter that can offer all the class and exclusivity of Vespa, with the agility and performance of the 300cc engine. The trailing link front suspension gains a distinctive red racing suspension spring, a distinctive and instrumental part of the Vespa design.

The aggressive front leg shield underscores the Super’s sporty character, with a stylish grill and chrome accents. The suspension gains a distinctive racing red finish for the front spring, a motorsports detail that makes the GTS 300 Super i.e. stand out in a crowd. The two-color alloy wheel rims are reminiscent of dismountable rims of Vespas past.

The GTS 300 Super i.e. engine delivers an extraordinary urban vehicle performance, characterized by a high torque level (22.3 Nm) reached at a lower engine speed (5,250 rpm.) On-road traction and superb pick-up from low speeds allow a rider to navigate city roads and highways with the confidence that they look stylish doing so.
