New Vespa GTS 300 Super 2009 2010 : Reviews and Specs




Scooters are cool because they are twist and go. For running errands around town etc.. they are hard to beat. However, $6200.00 is a lot of cash to lay down on 300cc's. One can get a heck of a lot more bike on Craigslist or from the local paper for the buy-in price of this Vespa. You could buy a cheap dual-purpose bike and still get as good as if not better mileage than this expensive scooter. If saving money on gas is the key factor then buy in cheap and let it pay you back quicker rather than years down the road!"... Well I guess this is the typical american mentality... buy cheap.. and then spend the money to fix it. WAY sooner than any Italian vespa. Yes they might be more expensive, but they last a lifetime. For example we got the cleanest burning and best 4strokein the category; and a manufacturing process in the making of the chassis that is unsurpassed. You buy american or cheap japanese products, and you will put a hole in your wallet much bigger than you imagine. No comparison:New Vespa GTS 300 Super 2009 2010 : Reviews and Specs quality-wise the italian manufacturing and engineering has no equals in this case. I bought a used 1981 P200 vespa with 1400 miles on it: six years later I sold it for the same amount with 66 thousand miles. Had one major accident but the bike never stopped working for me, not even to take me home that day with a broken shoulder. Had also a ET4 for 5 years and 14 thousand miles: Never let me down once. I have upgraded last year to a GTS250, Love it and get tons of compliments on it every single day. You know you're riding history on one of these bikes, and people recognize that. Smart people at least. I am Italian, grew up on these bikes and still ride them today, 43 years later.
The latest generation of the 4-stroke, 4-valve Quasar (QUArter liter Smooth Augmented Range) Single remains liquid-cooled and fuel injected. A 75mm bore and 63mm stroke deliver an extra 34cc, with peak power claims of 22 horsepower and 16.5 lb-ft torque (the 250 predecessor claimed 22 hp with 14.9 lb-ft torque). We know firsthand the admirable performance capabilities of the GTS 250, which allowed for casual freeway treks and rigorous backroad enjoyment. The new GTS 300 Super promises more of the same, retaining much of its predecessor's highlights, including a more stable and confident ride delivered by the large (for a scooter) 12-inch wheels. The latest GTS also incorporates the rigid Vespa-trademark sheetmetal frame. A single shock front suspension is non-adjustable, with the dual rear shocks adjustable for preload. Braking is dual disc, with a single 220mm rotor with dual-piston caliper configuration in both the front and rear.
