The new Vespa GTS SuperTech represents the top of the Vespa GTS range, the maximum expression of sport and technology. GTS SuperTech is the first large-bodied Vespa to adopt a fully digital instrument cluster thanks to a 4.3" full colour TFT display. The instrument cluster, as well as displaying all the classic information such as speed, total and partial mileage, ambient temperature, and fuel level, also serves as the display for the VESPA MIA smartphone connectivity system.

Always connected with VESPA MIA

The VESPA MIA connectivity system allows you to connect your smartphone to the Vespa GTS on-board electronics system via Bluetooth and enjoy exclusive functions for an even more satisfying and fun riding experience.

VESPA MIA and the new Vespa app are specifically designed to connect iOS or Android mobile devices to the latest Vespa models equipped with an instrument cluster with TFT display: Vespa Elettrica, Vespa Primavera S and Vespa Sprint S, and the brand-new model in the Vespa GTS range, the SuperTech version.

Once the smartphone is connected to Vespa GTS SuperTech - paired to the vehicle via the dedicated Vespa app, which can be downloaded from the App Store or Google Play - the TFT display will clearly show all notifications relating to incoming calls and messages in the centre of the screen. The system also allows for call management via the practical joystick on the right-hand control block and the use of vocal commands to make calls or listen to music, by activating a playlist. To fully enjoy all these functions, Vespa GTS SuperTech offers a special dedicated Jet helmet as an accessory, the helmet complete with built-in earphones and Bluetooth intercom.

The display also serves as a navigation system, accompanying the rider along the route, pre-set in the Vespa app, with directions and pictograms.

Available as standard with Vespa GTS SuperTech, the VESPA MIA system is available as an optional for other models in the new Vespa GTS range: as well as Infotainment and navigation functions, which make use of the instrument cluster with TFT display, the app is also an exceptional source of information when it comes to vehicle status, riding parameters and journey stats, which can be viewed on the smartphone. VESPA MIA technology serves to optimise Vespa GTS usage in both town and country, enhancing the travel experience.

 

Design: tradition and modernity

The style evolution of Vespa GTS continues to be shaped by its heritage, achieving a magical balance of tradition and modernity in the lines of its strictly steel chassis.

The many modifications made to update the design of the new Vespa GTS are further proof of this, the vehicle standing out from previous versions while still retaining certain distinctive traits: the front headlight and rear lights now adopt full LED technology, a solution that contributes to increasing active safety. The front section features a redesigned shield, the centre of which incorporates the unmistakeable horn cover, extended and enhanced with three decorations. Also new is the shape of the handlebar, the chrome crest of the front mudguard, the rear view mirrors and the grilles to the sides of the shield, characterised by a brand-new honeycomb motif.

At the rear, the side panels undergo a restyling, running under the body, while versions driven by a 300 HPE engine stand out for a new engine crankshaft cover and a new silencer cover.

Legendary comfort, further improved

The perfect ergonomics and natural seat position have always contributed to making every Vespa comfortable, pleasant to ride and accessible to all. The new Vespa GTS further highlights that strong touring tradition that big Vespas have always embodied, offering a new seat able to guarantee greater comfort for both rider and passenger. A result achieved thanks to optimised ergonomics and the use of new materials for the padding and upholstery.

The large under-seat compartment makes the most of available space, able to accommodate two Vespa Visor 3.0 demi-jet helmets and more besides. Adding to the load capacity of Vespa GTS is a glove box, inside which there is also a USB port, useful for the recharging of external devices.

The Piaggio 300 hpe engine: the most powerful Vespa of all time

The new Vespa GTS boasts the latest evolution of the 300 cc single-cylinder, 4 stroke, 4 valve, liquid-cooled engine with electronic injection: the result of Piaggio Group R&D experience, and known as 300 hpe (High Performance Engine), the unit has benefited from extensive work aimed at increasing performance while at the same time reducing fuel consumption. With respect to the previous version, maximum power comes in at 17.5 kW (23.8 HP) at 8250 rpm, which translates into a 12% increase, while maximum torque, equating to 26 Nm at 5250 rpm, has been boosted by 18%. Improvements that are paired with a significant reduction in consumption, with mileage increasing from 29.4 km/l to 31 km/l in the WMTC cycle.

This is the most high-performance engine ever mounted on a Vespa, a result achieved thanks to meticulous work by Piaggio technicians across a large number of components, with the aim of optimising thermodynamic output and reducing friction. The adoption of a new head and a piston with redesigned architecture results in a highly efficient combustion chamber, which also benefits from valves and ducts of increased diameter inside the head. The single camshaft distribution system with roller tappets gains a camshaft with optimised timing and valve lift speeds. The introduction of a new high pressure multi-jet injector also helps to improve combustion. Lastly, a more generous intake line improves the torque delivered at low revs and ensures an exceptionally smooth ride at any speed. The new iridium ignition spark-plug ensures greater durability.

The transmission has also been dramatically redesigned: the CVT boasts a new belt, new geometry and new materials, all enveloped by a new cover coated with sound-absorbent material, to reduce mechanical noise, also aided by a new, more rigid clutch drum.

The engine is controlled by a latest-generation Magneti Marelli MIUG4 ECU, already compatible with the future Euro 5 standard.
