The new Vespa GTS SuperTech represents the top of the Vespa GTS range, the ultimate in sportiness and technology. GTS SuperTech is the first large-bodied Vespa to adopt a fully digital instrument cluster with 4.3" full colour TFT display. The instrument panel, as well as displaying all the classic information such as speed, total and partial mileage, ambient temperature, and fuel level, works as a display for the VESPA MIA smartphone connectivity system.

TERMS & CONDITIONS
The new Vespa GTS is equipped with the latest evolution of the 300 cc, 4-stroke, 4-valve single-cylinder engine, liquid-cooled and with electronic injection: the fruit of work by the Piaggio Group research and development centre and known as 300 hpe (High Performance Engine), the unit has benefited from numerous interventions aimed at increasing performance and rideability, while simultaneously reducing fuel consumption and noise levels.
With respect to the previous version, maximum power reaches a value of 17.5 kW (23.8 HP) at 8250 rpm, which translates into a 12% increase, while maximum torque, equating to 26 Nm at 5250 rpm, is boosted by 18%. Values of reference that come into their own during off-the-line acceleration. These improvements come in addition to a significant reduction in consumption, figures going from 29.4 km/l to 31.2 km/l in the WMTC cycle. In other words, it is the most powerful engine ever mounted on a Vespa, a result achieved thanks to meticulous work by Piaggio technicians across a large number of components.
The main aim of the project was to optimise thermodynamic performance and reduce friction and engine noise, while at the same time increasing performance and general rideability. All without impacting on size or bulk, which remain the same as for the previous unit, at the top of its category. The cylinder head is born out of a brand-new casting and is characterised by totally redesigned internal components: the ducts have a new geometry and diameter (now greater), as do the intake and exhaust valves, the diameter of which has been increased by 3 mm. The adoption of a new-look piston, particularly in terms of its head shape, has resulted in a highly efficient combustion chamber.
The single camshaft system with overhead valves is all new, rockers equipped with roller tappets rather than sliders for increased fluidity and durability, and a reduction in mechanical loss. The profile of the camshaft has been redesigned to obtain different valve lift profiles, more extreme but also able to reduce the noise generated by the timing: essentially, greater valve lift duration ensures better filling of the combustion chamber, which translates into greater efficiency. As a result, the valve springs have also been altered in terms of load and size.
The introduction of a new high-pressure multi-jet injector has helped to improve combustion. A more generous intake line, equipped with a duct of optimised length, improves the torque delivered at low revs and ensures exceptionally smooth shifting at any speed. The new iridium spark plug ensures greater durability, conditions of use being equal. The many modifications made to the engine have also boosted the already legendary Vespa GTS reliability, as demonstrated by the significant maintenance intervals, now extended to 10,000 km.
Transmission has also been overhauled, the CVT boasting a more robust belt and new materials designed to reduce friction and noise. All of this is enveloped by a new cover coated with sound absorbing material, for a reduction in mechanical noise, also aided by a new and more rigid clutch drum. The engine is controlled by a latest-generation Magneti Marelli MIUG4 ECU, which already conforms with the future Euro 5 standard: equipped with greater calculation capacity, it contributes to improving overall engine efficiency and also allows for the engine to be started practically instantaneously, after just two rotations of the crankshaft.
The VESPA MIA connectivity system allows you to connect your smartphone to the on-board electronic system of the Vespa GTS via Bluetooth, for exclusive functionality that is sure to make the riding experience even more satisfying and fun. VESPA MIA and the new Vespa App are specifically designed to connect iOS or Android mobile devices to those latest Vespa models equipped with an instrument cluster and TFT display, namely Vespa Elettrica, Vespa Primavera S and Vespa Sprint S, and the brand-new entry to the Vespa GTS range, the SuperTech.
Once a smartphone is connected to the Vespa GTS SuperTech - associating the phone via the dedicated Vespa App, available for download in the App Store or Google Play - the TFT display will show all notifications regarding incoming calls and messages in the centre of the screen.
The system also allows for the management of calls, thanks to the practical joystick located on the left-hand control block, and the use of smartphone voice commands when making calls or reproducing music, with the activation of a playlist. To fully appreciate this functionality, Vespa GTS SuperTech proposes a dedicated Jet helmet as an accessory, which is integrated with earphones and a Bluetooth intercom.
The display also serves as a navigation tool, accompanying the rider on a pre-set route set up on the Vespa App, with directions and pictograms. VESPA MIA is included as standard on the Vespa GTS SuperTech, while the Vespa Multimedia Platform is available as an accessory for other models in the new Vespa GTS range. As well as infotainment and navigational functions, which make use of the instrument panel with TFT display, the app is also an exceptional source of useful information regarding vehicle status, riding parameters and travel statistics, which can be viewed on the smartphone.
The VESPA MIA technology optimises Vespa GTS usage whether riding in an urban or non-urban environment, thus enhancing the travel experience.
