There are many completely new parts on the family of i-get engines:
The eighth-litre version is credited with power of 9 kW at 8,250 rpm, whereas the more powerful 150 cc puts out 11 kW at 8,250 rpm. These are numbers that translate into quick engines on the road, specifically designed and built bearing in mind the needs of the rider for daily use in city and metropolitan environments. These are riding conditions characterised by frequent starts and stops which require elasticity, quick acceleration and a smooth ride. These characteristics are ensured by excellent torque (11.1 Nm at 6,750 rpm for the 125 cc and 14 Nm at 6,500 rpm for the 150 cc) which provide Vespa GTS with excellent acceleration both from a stop and in motion.
The new engines also guarantee lengthy service and maintenance intervals. Fluids and filters are changed every 10,000 km and valve clearance only needs to be adjusted every 20,000 km.
Overall fuel consumption benefits from the optimisation of each and every component: mileage on the WMTC cycle reaches 42.4 km/l for the Vespa GTS 125 (41.1 km/l for the GTS 150).
The Large Vespa style.
The Vespa GTS evolution has always followed the trend of tradition, maintaining that magical balance between tradition and modernism in the lines of the body, strictly in steel. Vespa GTS still maintains the distinctive traits that are so characteristic of the large body Vespa, but it also has numerous and important aesthetic updates.
Vespa GTS have a "tie" on the front shield with a modern design, front and rear turn indicators characterised by new clear plastics and a rear light assembly elegantly adorned by a chromium frame which recalls the finish of the crest on the front mudguard. The footboard central tunnel cover is enhanced by the Vespa logo.
Its perfect ergonomics and natural seating have always contributed to making every Vespa comfortable, pleasant to ride and accessible to all. The saddle on the Vespa GTS provides superior comfort thanks to the specific padding and new covering. The helmet compartment fully exploits the available space and is able to hold two demi-jet Vespa helmets and more. To further increase the cargo capacity of the Vespa GTS, there is a compartment in the leg shield back plate, ideal for keeping smaller objects handy such as glasses, documents and mobile phones, as well as the convenient bag hook on the upper part of the leg shield back plate. On Vespa GTS, you can also count on the convenient and solid support of the rear luggage rack.
Now standard on all models in the Vespa GTS range are the remote control to open the saddle and Bike Finder, extremely convenient for finding your Vespa in a crowded car park by making the turn indicators flash.
The USB port is not missing, located in the leg shield back plate compartment, convenient for recharging any external device, while the front turn indicators contain a series of LEDs that act as daylight running lights. The trapezoid-shaped digital instrumentation is characterised by its compact size, but also by the extremely exhaustive information provided, it is made up of a classic speedometer and a small multi-functional digital area surrounded by six service indicator lights. The information provided includes the fuel level, time and two partial odometers.
The new Vespa GTS 125/150 is naturally compatible with the Vespa Multimedia Platform (VMP). When a Smartphone with one of the most common operating systems is connected to the on board electronic system VMP transforms it into a real and sophisticated computer which is capable of providing the rider with various information both on the condition of the vehicle and on the route travelled. This allows the rider to use the Smartphone's touchscreen to keep constant tabs on all riding parameters and to handle both city traffic and longer trips in complete safety.
One of the many features provided by pairing your smartphone with your Vespa is the parked Vespa finder, certain to be popular with more distracted riders. In fact, the system automatically remembers the vehicle's last position before the engine was switched off, thereby helping you find your Vespa if you forget where you left it. This can be quite convenient when parking, for example, in an unfamiliar city. You can also store all of your travel data in order to easily analyse your riding style through the numerous parameters acquired in real time during your trip.
New safety features.
The Piaggio Group was the first company in the world to introduce electronic systems on scooters which were once available only on the best motorcycles, such as ASR (available on the GTS 300 version) and ABS, which also equip the GTS 125 and 150. Each wheel has a revolution detection system - a sensor and a tone wheel - which instantly reads the speed and deceleration of the wheel with respect to that of the vehicle. The sensors dialogue with a 2-channel hydraulic control unit which activates the ABS system if one of the two wheels decelerates abruptly with respect to the vehicle, avoiding locking and ensuring stability and efficient braking even on road surfaces with a low friction coefficient.
Technology, the uniqueness of Vespa.
The new Vespa GTS/150 is conceived on the reliable, tried and true technical foundation of the previous series. The body, as has always been the case for Vespa from 1946 to the present, is made strictly in steel and provides incomparable sturdiness, in addition to safety features and truly unique dynamic performance. The result is a particularly brilliant ride both in city traffic and on country roads: a mix of thrilling handling and reassuring stability, partly to the credit of wide tyres mounted on 12 inch diameter rims. The dual disc braking system ensures ever-ready decelerating power even in sport use, with modularity that puts even beginners at ease.
