Sporting a classic design which dates back to 1946, the Vespa GTS 300 is one of the most widely recognized scooters in the world. For 2015, the Italian manufacturer launched a new Sport Special Edition that further expresses the values of style, comfort, and sportiness preached by this iconic nameplate.
Aesthetically, the exclusive Satin Black finish, the orange graphics on the side of the rear fairing, and the sport seat with orange piping give the 2015 Vespa GTS 300 Super Sport SE a modern and masculine appearance. Other highlights include a red front spring, two-tone alloy wheels, LED lighting at both ends, and a new instrument panel with a black background.
Whether you ride around town or beyond, you will appreciate the fuel-injected, 287cc, 4-stroke, single-cylinder engine, which delivers strong performance thanks in large part to a healthy 16.4 lb-ft at 5,250 rpm (along with 21.1 hp at 7,500 rpm). Aided by new Anti-Slip Regulation (ASR), like you'd find on top sport bikes, the 2015 Vespa GTS 300 Super Sport SE is said to offer solid traction and pick-up from low speeds, “providing confidence in urban commuting that never goes out of style” (the company's words).
In terms of performance and efficiency, you should also know that the 2015 Vespa GTS 300 Super Sport SE is able to reach a top speed of 129 km/h and achieves 22 km/L (3.44L/100km). Fuel tank capacity is 9.2L. The front and rear disc brakes with ABS provide superior braking power, while the 12” tires and dual-effect rear shock absorbers with preload adjustment should positively enhance ride quality, especially with a passenger in tow.
Speaking of which, this large-frame scooter offers generous room for two-up riding, plus a bigger-for-2015 storage compartment under the seat.
You can buy the exclusive, technologically advanced 2015 Vespa GTS 300 Super Sport SE for $6,995 -- just $200 more than the regular GTS 300 Super. As always, you can make your Vespa scooter unique with a wide range of genuine accessories.
