2023 Vespa GTS revealed: GTS, GTS SUPER, GTS SUPERSPORT AND GTS SUPERTECH
Vespa introduced four GTS model lines for 2023. The new range comes with the standard equipment of previous models and includes four versions: the classic Vespa GTS, the contemporary GTS Super, the sporty GTS SuperSport, and the “ultratechnological” Vespa GTS SuperTech.
Like the previous generation, the GTS SuperTech is a ‘flagship’ variant and comes with all modern electronic packages.
Vespa GTS include a mild facelift, a new front suspension and two engines are offered for the GTS model, which includes the 125cc i-GET single-cylinder engine and the 300 HPE offering 23hp. Both the engines are fuel-injected, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder units, but the highlight of 300 HPE is its 23hp peak power output, which is its most powerful yet, as per the Vespa.
Although the emission standards for these two engines are not specified, considering that the previous engine only has Euro 4 status, it is highly likely that Vespa has already upgraded both engines to the Euro 5 standard.
This 2023 model maintains the iconic design of the previous model but to ensure this model remains fresh, Vespa offers 14 attractive colour options and the automaker has made a few tweaks in the form of redesigned mirrors, mudguard and the front apron. The bold colourways with contrasting colour elements look striking, as do the alloy wheels.
The body of the new GTS family is still made of steel and has been paired with an entirely new front suspension. Maintaining the traditional, single-arm layout, the system has been redesigned in terms of functionality for greater stability, especially at high speeds, and to improve comfort and handling, thanks to the new suspension calibration. The Vespa GTS range also includes dual disc brakes, ABS, and ASR traction control.
Vespa continues to focus on ergonomics and a natural riding position, which the company says makes the scooter “extremely comfortable, enjoyable to ride and accessible to everyone.” Along these lines, the new Vespa GTS also features a new seat offering comfort for both rider and passenger, as well as optimized ergonomics for easy footing on the ground at a standstill.
However, Vespa has upgraded the ‘swingarm’ part to be stronger and offer better stability. Vespa has improved the level of comfort by installing more comfortable seats.
The Vespa GTS Super, GTS Supersport and GTS Supertech are equipped with keyless start/stop as well as remote seat opening functions. They also get a Bike Finder feature that helps locate the scooter in a crowded parking lot using the remote key fob. Both the GTS Supersport and GTS Supertech models also get smartphone connectivity via the Vespa MIS app.
The Vespa GTS Supertech is the range’s top model. It has a 4.3-inch full colour TFT display, while the rest of the models have a three-inch analog-LCD display.
