The Vespa GTS 300 IE is a retro scooter packed with more than enough power to reward its rider with a pretty thrilling riding experience.

In terms of style, we especially like the decisive lines of the cowls, the round and sloping front headlight, the short windscreen and the big front fender.

The Vespa GTS 300 IE features a monocoque body, made entirely from steel that gives it improved handling abilities and a better rigidity.

Once on board you are met by a comfortable saddle which together with the ergonomically designed handlebar gives you a fairly relaxed riding position.

The scooter is powered by a single-cylinder, catalysed, 4-stroke, 4-valves QUASAR engine with electronic injection. The engine has a capacity of 278 cc and delivers a maximum output of 15,8 kW at 7.500 rpm (21.1 hp) and 22,3 Nm at 5.250 rpm (16.4 ft-lb).
