There’s been a GTS 300 before, but the “HPE” bit makes all the difference here. In typically straightforward Italian fashion, it stands for High Performance Engine, which is a bit modest seeing as to how this is the most powerful Vespa chăm sóc sức khỏe và làm đẹp ever.


*

That might not sound like a lot of oomph, but it’s 12 percent & 18 percent more than before respectively. The HPE uses less fuel, too, averaging a claimed 31km per litre (instead of 29.4km/L).

For the extra hp sauce you can thank a new piston kiến thiết, along with a revised cylinder head — the cam protệp tin is different, the cam followers have sầu rollers for less friction, và the intake & exhaust ports are wider, so the valves are 3mm bigger.

But never mind what’s on paper. In practice the GTS 300 is a blast khổng lồ ride, with an eagerness to get going that’s almost playful, sort of like what would happen if you took a cheetah và hypnotised it inlớn thinking it was a puppy.

Twist the throttle, and the Vespa chăm sóc sức khỏe và làm đẹp leaps into action with a suddenness that can catch you out, especially when all that torque makes the front wheel pop up for a tiny moment.

*

Adding to lớn the hilarity is the fact that, if you keep the throttle pinned, the Vespa chăm sóc sức khỏe và làm đẹp has you at three-figure speeds in no time, banishing your rivals in the traffic light grand prix lớn the round mirrors.

People think owning a Porsche or Lambo is a sure way lớn thất bại your licence, but it seems to me you’re just as likely to end up in the soup if you ride a GTS 300. It’s so infectiously lively that you’re bound to lớn try it on, every chance you get.

*

Maybe one of the things that will help keep you honest is the electronic speedo. In Supertech spec (a S$500 option) as tested here the Vespa chăm sóc sức khỏe và làm đẹp thitruongxemay.comes with a 4.3-inch TFT display that’s actually pretty easy to read, both at night và in bright sunlight.

You’ll be able to lớn see your tốc độ clearly and dial things baông chồng accordingly, but the real benefit is that it enables a bunch of connectivity features via Công nghệ Bluetooth and a thitruongxemay.companion ứng dụng on your phone.

There are also displays on the phầm mềm that let you peek at your Vespa’s performance and fuel consumption, keep traông xã of service appointments và so on.

All that connectivity on the Vespa is fine, but really, the enjoyment thitruongxemay.comes from riding the thing.

There’s nothing quite as zippy as a scooter, & the GTS 300 doesn’t disappoint there, pulling off single-lane U-turns and fast direction changes with ease. The saddle isn’t actually that low to lớn the ground, but the Vespa itself is light enough that it’s a breeze to shove sầu around in the oto park và keep upright at a red light.

The wheels are still pretty small (12”) so if there’s a pothole looming you’d best use the maneuverability to lớn swoop around it, & the bar stool riding position sometimes feels a bit precarious on the highway, but the Vespa làm đẹp is otherwise a lovely place khổng lồ sit.

In typical Vespa chăm sóc sức khỏe và làm đẹp fashion it’s also handy, with a glove thitruongxemay.compartment that I literally used lớn stow my riding gloves (above), a nice bag hook that you can use to lớn take curry with you, and some underseat storage.

You won’t get a full face helmet into the thitruongxemay.compartment under the saddle, alas, which is probably why you always see Vespas with a top box.

On the less traditional side of things, the headlight is now a super bright LED (below), the way the transmission works is noticeably smoother than before, and there’s even traction control & ABS (both standard), both of which are worthwhile safety features.
