– 2019 GTS 300 introduced in Europe
– Is the most powerful Vespa
– Gets revised bodywork, new features
Piaggio launched the most powerful scooter ever designed by Vespa. The 2019 GTS 300 which was unveiled at EICMA 2018 has been introduced to the European market.
The 2019 edition of the GTS 300 is now powered by a new High Performance Engine (HPE). This single cylinder engine develops 23.8 hp and a maximum torque of 26 Nm. This engine is mated to a reworked CVT transmission.
Aesthetically, the GTS 300 benefits from an updated steel body. It sports a new LED headlight, as well as a new saddle covered with a non-slip fabric. The under-seat storage can hold up to two half helmets. This Italian scooter has been packed with cool features like the Bluetooth enabled instrument cluster and the bike finder app. The rider can use the app to locate the scooter in case it is parked in crowded parking lots. The TFT screen also displays typical driving data such as fuel consumption and speed. It is also equipped with a USB port for charging smartphones. Traction control system and ABS are standard on this scooter.
This scooter is available in five variants, the GTS, GTS Touring, GTS Super, GTS SuperSport and GTS SuperTech. Unfortunately, the GTS 300 won’t be coming to India anytime soon, as there is no market for such high capacity scooters.
