The Vespa GTS Touring, with its single 300 cc engine capacity, is definitely the long range touring Vespa. The Touring Special Series gives a nod in fact to the thousands of specially outfitted Vespas that have carried entire generations on tour all over the world.
The finishes are designed to spice up the Vespa’s compact and rigid body: the standard chrome luggage racks at both front and rear considerably increase the vehicle’s load carrying capacity, the rounded and transparent fly screen wraps round the Vespa “eye” to raise the level of protection, while the saddle, made of last generation materials, makes it look even more elegant.
The Vespa Touring comes standard with the agile side kickstand, the handiest solution for parking, and is unmistakable with the special Silk Grey colouring and the “Touring” wording on the vehicle’s leg shield.

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.
