With all its design and technological content, the Vespa GTS Super 300 reinterprets a new sporty classic from the mighty Vespa collection. While plenty of functional details, like the USB port in the double compartment under the leg shield back plate, it certainly hasn’t forgotten its racing spirit.
The new two-tone alloy rims nod to the past and highlight the sporty attitude of the 145th model in Vespa’s history. The red spring of the front suspension and the new front grill add to the sporty feel.
While the lights are now modern LEDs, in stark contrast, we still have a completely analog instrumentation, which harks back to racing traditions, offering a beautiful display of white numbers on a black background.
The saddle is comprised of materials typical found on sporty Italian vehicles, and the body, the metal soul of the Vespa, has undergone some significant changes. On the right hand side the horizontal grill nods to the most beautiful Vespas of the past and gives an elegant sporty touch to the vehicle’s profile. And for increased safety, the front and rear disc brakes are now equipped with ABS and Piaggio’s ASR system.

Piaggio was the first worldwide company to introduce advanced active safety systems such as ABS & ASR on a scooter, now available on the GTS range. ABS. Each wheel is equipped with a detection system (a sensor and a phonic wheel) that instantly measure speed and deceleration. The sensors communicate with a hydraulic control unit with two channels that activates the ABS system if one of the wheels decelerates quickly relative to the vehicle, avoiding locking and ensuring stability and efficient braking.
ASR (Anti Slip Regulation). It uses the ABS electronics and sensors to compare the wheel speed rotation of the two wheels. When the sensors detect the rear wheel speed exceeds that of the front, the control unit intervenes cutting the engine toque by spark advance reduction and, if necessary, also on the injection system to prevent slippage and prevent loss of vehicle control . These solutions put Vespa on the top level regarding safety and technology.
