Vespa Gts. Vespa Gts will go down as one of the world's best-loved two-wheelers as it follows on from the legendary “Vespone”, the name given to those Vespas with a larger, strictly steel body. Vespas with which to move elegantly around town but that are also ready to travel, or even adventure thanks to their increasingly generous engines.
It has clearly evolved stylistically, maintaining that magical balance between tradition and modernity that comes out in the lines of the Gts, painstakingly refined down to the smallest detail, thereby elevating the perceived quality to unprecedented levels. The “neck-tie” on the front shield is new, as well as the metallic profiles of the body, now available in different finishes, whereas the entire lighting system is fully LED. The rear part has also been revisited, introducing new side panels, a new license plate bracket, and new shapes for the lighting system. Also brand new are the mirrors, the handlebar, now wider and ergonomic, and the electrical controls, whereas new instrumentation has been introduced that contains even more information, and the keyless system. The saddle is also new, more comfortable and more refined, which allows the riders feet to rest better on the ground. In terms of comfort, the new Vespa Gts takes a bold step forward, also thanks to the new front suspension with more controlled operation and better capability to absorb any type of bump. The more efficient and powerful braking system is also new. ABS and the rear wheel traction control system come standard.
There are four versions in the range differed by their equipment packages and colour variants (for a total of 14 available colours), whereas 2 engines are available for the new Vespa Gts: the 300 hpe, capable of almost 24 HP, the most powerful engine ever mounted in a factory Vespa, and the 125 of the i-get series, featuring Start & Stop, brilliant performance, and truly low fuel consumption.
New Vespa Gtv. VESPA ASTONISHES WITH Gtv, THE MOST AUTHENTICALLY SPORTY MODEL EVER. VESPA Gtv IS THE EXTRAORDINARY COMBINATION OF LEGEND AND MODERNITY: THE LOW HEADLAMP AND THE EXPOSED TUBULAR HANDLEBAR COMBINE WITH BRAND NEW SPORTY FINISHES AND A HI-TECH EQUIPMENT PACKAGE, CREATING A NEVER BEFORE SEEN VESPA! NEW DIGITAL INSTRUMENTATION, FULL LED LIGHT CLUSTERS AND KEYLESS SYSTEM. IT IS POWERED BY THE 300 HPE ENGINE, WITH MORE THAN 23 HP, THE MOST POWERFUL EVER TO EQUIP A VESPA.
From its birth in 2006, Vespa Gtv has been the ambassador of purest classicism within the Vespa family thanks to the use of the “faro basso” (low headlamp), positioned on the front mudguard, and the exposed metal tubular handlebar, stylistic throwbacks to the most iconic models.
At EICMA 2022, Vespa Gtv débuts in a completely revolutionised look, maintaining the inevitable traits of the legend's origins, but combining them with an ultra-modern technological equipment package and brand-new sporty finishes. The result is an extraordinary marriage of tradition and modernity, classicism and aggressiveness, which manifests itself in the most authentically sporty Vespa ever.
The new Vespa Gtv is powered by the gritty 300 hpe (High Performance Engine) single cylinder, with 4-valve timing, liquid cooling, and electronic fuel injection. Accredited with power of 17.5 kW (23.8 HP), it is the highest performance engine ever fitted on a Vespa.
An authentic style, even sportier. The new Vespa Gtv evolves under the sign of sportiness and includes the significant stylistic improvements introduced in the new Gts range, with even more painstakingly detailed finishes and a construction quality that elevates it to unprecedented levels.
The headlight clusters are now full LED, including the characteristic low headlamp, whereas the new instrumentation maintains the elegant circular shape, but it is now entirely digital, a solution that makes it possible to take full advantage of the features offered by the Vespa MIA connectivity system, available as a separate accessory.
The instrumentation is connected to the handlebar using an original cantilevered bracket and enveloped by a small yet aggressive top fairing clearly inspired by the racing world. Enhanced by three horizontal slits, it is painted orange, a shade that also characterises the Vespa Gtv's graphics and contrasting details.
At the centre of the front shield, the unmistakeable “neck-tie” has sporty lateral slits and is enhanced by decorations with orange edging. The five-spoke design of the wheel rims is also new, painted matt black with an orange graphic on the channel.
Another distinctive element of Vespa Gtv is the single-seat two-tone saddle with a racing look and the rear part which is installation read for a hard cover colour coded to match the body, reminiscent of the typical racing Vespa fairings. The cover is available as a separate accessory and can be removed. In any case, the saddle is street legal for two-up riding and features ample and comfortable seating, characterised by a technical pattern and horizontal thermobonding with contrasting orange stitching on the edges.
The overall look of the Vespa Gtv stands out for its matt black finish that characterises the frame of the low headlamp and the rear light cluster, its profile along the perimeter of the body, its passenger grab handle and footpegs, its silencer cover, its rear view mirrors, and the instrumentation bracket and frame. The new Vespa Gtv is available in the dedicated Beige Avvolgente Opaco colour scheme with contrasting orange graphics that run diagonally across the side panels.
Hi-tech equipment package. Vespa Gtv embraces the technology and the travelling vocation typical of the extremely recent evolution of the Vespa Gts family, the famous “Vespone”. Therefore, the ergonomics are perfectly Vespa, enhanced by the comfort of the large body; the seat position is natural and allows total control over the vehicle and absolute comfort even over long distances.
Convenience and practicality are highlighted by the introduction of the keyless system, which lets you start it without having to insert a traditional key. On the back of the shield, the classic ignition switch with lock is replaced by a practical knob. To start the vehicle, simply press it and turn it to the ON position. The engine is started in the usual way, via the button located on the right-hand control block.
The implementation of new digital LCD instrumentation allows a wealth of travel information to be displayed (maximum speed, average speed, instant consumption, average consumption, range, and battery charge status), as well as all call, message and music notifications if the vehicle is connected to a smartphone through the VESPA MIA system (available as a separate accessory).
The USB port comes as standard equipment, located in the storage compartment on the back of the shield, whereas the spacious compartment under the seat features a mat and a practical courtesy light. On the safety front, standard features include ASR electronic traction control and the anti-lock braking system (ABS).
New Vespa Primavera Color Vibe. AN IRREVERENT EXPLOSION OF COLOURS COMBINES WITH THE TIMELESS LINES OF PRIMAVERA: INTRODUCING THE NEW COLOR VIBE SPECIAL SERIES. AN ECLECTIC TWO-TONE LIVERY MIXES WITH THE BLACK DETAILS AND THE EXCLUSIVE OTTANIO WHEELS, CREATING A PLAY OF UNIQUE CONTRASTS.
Vespa Primavera is the young and fresh soul of Vespa. It is simultaneously an icon and experimental, a model with timeless style yet still a trend setter. A citizen of the world that arrives at EICMA 2022 in an even more colourful and irreverent outfit.
Introducing the new Vespa Primavera Color Vibe, a special series and a tribute to the colourful and carefree Vespa universe. Vespa Primavera Color Vibe is characterized by a special two-tone livery: the body, available in the Arancio Color Vibe and Bianco Color Vibe shades, is matched with a footboard in Ottanio, a bold and decisive shade of turquoise.
An original contrasting colour “stain” which, outlined in black, runs diagonally across the entire body through the dedicated graphics on the sides of the front shield and side panels. The decorations of the typical steering cover on the front shield are also in Ottanio, as well as the exclusive wheel rims, made only for this version in a special glossy metallic finish.
Yet more proof of Vespa's eclectic nature, the outfitting is completed by sporty black trim: the headlamp and taillight frames, the profile that runs along the front shield, the crest on the front mudguard, the front suspension spring and guard, the passenger grab handle, and the silencer cover. The saddle is black with anthracite stitching.
Vespa Primavera Color Vibe is available in the 50, 125, and 150 cc versions with the displacement indicated in orange on the side panels.
Vespa 946 10° Anniversario. VESPA CELEBRATES AN EXTRAORDINARY PROJECT, WHICH HAS BEEN REINVENTING THE FUTURE FOR TEN YEARS. VESPA 946 10° ANNIVERSARIO IS A TRIBUTE TO THE TRENDS OF 2023, WITH A SPECIAL DEDICATED COLOUR.
Created in 2013 and continuing the legacy of a humanistic approach to design, in which the human figure is at the same time creator and focus of the creative idea, Vespa 946 has now been the archetype of Vespa for the coming generations. It’s a masterpiece of Italian craftsmanship that has now become a genuine collector’s item, taking shape in a dedicated production line, more like a haute couture atelier than a factory.
Ten years on, Vespa 946 makes its debut in the special 10° Anniversario outfit, with an exclusive dedicated colour that’s a modern take on a classic Vespa shade, green. In keeping with its role as trendsetter, Vespa 946 10° Anniversario sports a shade which is soft and velvety, but has a hint of acidity that makes it highly original. It’s no coincidence that this shade emerged as a trend in the Spring Summer 2023 fashion collections at the New York, London and Milan Fashion Weeks. The pearlescent colour appears pastel at first glance, but then gains depth with illumination.
All the details of Vespa 946 10° Anniversario are made with a refined burnished finish with warm hues, starting with the aluminium alloy split wheel rims, whose fins are intended as a reference to the historic drum brake that equipped the first Vespas. The wheel rim channel, on the other hand, is green to match the body. The double-upholstered saddle is black with burnished stitching, as are the hand grips, hand-sewn with needle and thread.
Vespa 946 10° Anniversario - The Technology. Tradition and innovation: Monocoque body made of sheet steel with aluminium elements: handlebar, saddle support, side panels, front mudguard, rear view mirror supports. Maximum safety: 220 mm dual disc brake, ABS dual channel braking system, ASR traction electronic control system. Large 12" wheels, aluminium alloy split rims. Ecology and economy: 125 and 150 cc 3V engines, electronic injection, top-in-class fuel consumption and emissions reduction. Technology and style: LED headlamp with heat dissipating system, LED tail light and turn indicators, full LCD multi-purpose dashboard.
