On the basis of the renewed technical platform of the Vespa GTS comes two special versions with a slew of standard equipment which includes ABS and ASR safety systems: these are Vespa GTS Touring and Vespa GTS Super.
The Special Super Edition of the Vespa embodies the typical Vespa values of style, comfort, safety and outstanding sportiness while citing legendary models of the past sports such as the 1955 Vespa GS 150, the 1965 Vespa 180 SS and the 1985 T5 “Pole Position”. Vespa GTS Super is the most aggressive Vespa of the large scooter family that is the most popular in the world, that meld together drive, attitude and performance.
The new Vespa GTS Touring represents the Vespa's vocation to touring. Millions of Vespas, equipped for tourism, have always travelled the roads of the world giving generations the opportunity to know each other, expanding their borders and encountering different cultures.
Developed on the technical basis of the Vespa GTS, the new Touring model comes off as a, vehicle of great stylistic impact that draws from the mythology of Vespa travel, and ready to face all journeys whether city or country. The new Vespa GTS Touring is characterised by the evocative windscreen that improves protection without affecting - thanks to its small size - the elegance, by the front luggage rack that, along with the rear one and the under-seat compartment, provide excellent load capacity to tackle memorable holidays, alone or in company. The Touring also has a dedicated logo positioned on the leg shield back plate.
The evolution of style
The most sporting of the Vespa range continuously evolves and hits new standards of safety, technology, comfort and painstaking attention to detail. All of the Vespa large body versions boast a spacious helmet compartment, a more and more comfortable seating position and latest generation instrumentation with plenty of information.
The new series standard features a USB port, located inside the compartment of the leg shield, while the front turn lights house a series of LED that act as day running lights.
A step forward for technology
The Piaggio Group is the first manufacturer to introduce scooter ASR electronic traction control, once available only on the best motorcycles, which prevents wheelspin. The electronic control package is rounded-off by the ABS, anti-braking system. Both are standard features of the Vespa GTS Touring and GTS Super.
The sophisticated Vespa Multimedia Platform is available on the entire Vespa GTS range. This is the platform that allows smartphone connection to the on-board electronic system to transform it into a multi-function tool, a full-fledged complex computer able to simultaneously display information such as tachometer, rev meter, and also instantaneous engine power and torque, longitudinal acceleration, instant and average fuel consumption, average speed and battery voltage and much more. The smartphone connected to the Vespa Multimedia Platform also makes it possible to display maps and routes as well as identify petrol stations and Service Stations. The tyre condition monitoring feature takes synergistic advantage of the vehicle and smartphone sensors to monitor tyre wear and inflation, immediately alerting the rider of any potentially critical situations. The general analysis feature monitors vehicle condition.
Vespa GTS Touring and Vespa GTS Super come with a 300 cc modern and advanced 4 valve x 4 stroke single cylinder engine with electronic injection, able to provide a maximum output of 15.6 kW (21.2 HP) at 7,750 rpm with maximum torque of 22 Nm at only 5,000 rpm. Values that ensure heightened acceleration readiness and in general extremely brilliant performance, making the new larger body Vespa ideal vehicles for city roads and touring, even long range travels, in full comfort whether alone or with a passenger.
For both Vespa versions the windshield, the spacious 42 litre top box and the top box mounting are available. The front and rear luggage racks are some of the most popular accessories that strongly denote the personality and long standing Vespa traveller tradition.
And speaking of chromium plated accessories, let's not forget the side kit which guarantees maximum protection for your Vespa and ensures a bold aesthetic personalisation.
The leg cover made of thermal material, easy to install, also guarantees riding comfort in any season of the year. The complete set of accessories also includes the vehicle cover, mechanical anti-theft device, electronic anti-theft device, top box internal bag, luggage rack straps, and elegant “Country & Leisure” plaid.
To enhance the sporting spirit of the Vespa GTS Super, the single-seat Sport saddle was designed that combines two different fabrics, has electrowelded stitching on the seating area that contrasts with the white stitching.
One of the most characteristic and highest technology accessories is the Vespa Multimedia Platform which allows the rider to place his or her smartphone in communication with the Vespa.
