It’s been a four-year wait, but Vespa’s finally released its newest range of GTS scooters.
As you’d expect, the Italian factory is sticking to its tried and tested successful formula of building stylish scooters that go almost as good as they look. And while on the surface it might not look like there’s a huge amount to get excited about, actually there is.

There’s the usual array or models and variants to choose from – with the ‘standard’ Vespa GTS, GTS Super, the GTS SuperSport, and the GTS SuperTech all available with either a 125cc I-GET single-cylinder motor, or a 300cc HPE (High Performance Engine). However, the big news is that the latest generation of GTS machines get new suspension and brakes. It’s not exactly revolutionary, but the traditional single-arm system has been redesigned to help offer greater stability (especially at high speeds), while also improving comfort and handling.
Improvements have been made to the seat, too, to help make it an even more capable touring companion. There’s a new keyless ignition system, which allows you to start the scooter, unlock the seat and lock the steering all without faffing about with a key. It’s a good thing for security, too.
The flagship SuperTech version of the GTS also comes kitted out with a new TFT colour display – though the standard, Super and SuperSport all keep the simple LCD instrument panel. However, they can now be linked with the VESPA MIA connectivity system (which comes as standard equipment on the SuperTech and the SuperSport and is available as an optional accessory on the other two).
With 14 colour schemes available across the range, and a whole host of aftermarket extras available, there’s no doubt that the latest generation GTS will be as desirable as ever. With all versions already available in official dealers, it looks like we won’t have to wait too long for the chance to ride one.
