2013 Vespa GTV 300 IE

Posted on by  

The Vespa GTV 300 IE is a stylish scooter developed for those who want a fast way of moving through the city.

The scooter draws inspiration from its ancestors and features a retro style mixed with a few modern accents that give it a contemporary feel. We especially like the headlight mounted on the front mudguard which is a reference to some of the first Vespas.

Once on board you are met by a two-seat saddle wrapped in eco-leather and a classic handlebar.

The Vespa GTV 300 IE is powered by a single-cylinder, catalysed, 4-stroke, 4-valves QUASAR engine with electronic injection. The engine is mated on a CVT automatic transmission and cranks out a maximum power of 15,8 kW at 7.500 rpm (21.1 hp) and 22,3 Nm of torque at 5.250 rpm (16.4 ft-lb).

The Vespa GTV 300 IE is offered with a starting price of $6999.

Overview

Vespa GTV 300 IE

The Vespa GTV 300 i.e. stands out for refinement: in its forms and functions, reinterpreting the hallmark elements of 1950’s and 60’s Vespa models.

The headlight mounted on the front mudguard of the GTV 300 i.e. is a reference to some of the first Vespas to come off the production line in Pontedera, Italy. The handlebar is a reference to the past as well - it is the same exposed metal tube seen on the earliest Vespas that now appears on the Vespa GTV 300 i.e. The two-seat saddle in eco-leather is elegant and comfortable, and as on the original Vespas, is split into two separate seats, while the precision crafted piping emphasizes its silhouette.

Powered by a modern and powerful 300cc liquid cooled four-stroke four-valve engine, the Vespa GTV 300 i.e. offers unrivalled flexibility and responsiveness due to the use of fuel injection, which also significantly lowers fuel consumption and emissions.
