Motorcycle USA contributing editor Gabe Ets-Hokin samples the Vespa GTS 300 Super luxury scooter. Read the full story in our 2010 Vespa GTS 300 Super Review.
- The Super's modern, liquid-cooled, four-valve, fuel-injected Single means hills, no matter how steep, just aren't a problem.
- The 2010 Vespa GTS300 is an evolution of the GTS250 model and is the largest capacity Vespa ever made.
- Fuel gauge, temperature gauge and clock round out the instrumentation. Anti-theft ignition is very effective, and standard.
- The GTS's styling is modern, but unmistakable as a Vespa. Che bella!
- Chromed passenger pegs fold neatly back into the cowling when not in use.
- Dual disc brakes with braided-steel lines deliver sure, safe stops, two-tone wheels deliver the latest in Euro automotive fashion.
- The GTS300 is held together by a monoque chassis that makes for good handling and maneuverability.
- The Super corners as well as anything with a purse hook has a right to do. Chrome grab rails replace the luggage rack found on the standard GTS300.
- The GTS300 has wide, cushy seat with lots of room for two, underseat storage for two half-helmets, and a locking glovebox.
- Fuel economy with the GTS300 is still quite acceptable: I saw around 60 mpg in my very unscientific mpg testing, which means you can expect 120-150 miles from its 2.4 gallon tank.
