The Vespa has origins from a single model motor scooter developer in 1946 by Piaggio & Co. S.p.A. of Pontedera, Italy, to a full line of scooters and one of seven companies today owned by Piaggio. This Vespa scooters have been known for their painted job, pressed steel uni-body which harmonize a complete cowling for the engine (enclosing the engine mechanism and hidden dirt or grease), a flat floorboard (providing foot protection), and a prominent front fairing (providing wind protection) into a structural unit. Now their latest models have been launched to the Indian market for sales. Below are the full details regarding the new Vespa models which have been shown at IBW 2015 – Details.
Vespa Shows four scooters under its umbrella at the India Bike Week (IBW) 2015. Two among these were the Vespa S and the Elegante that are on sale here in India. But with them there were two never seen before scooters namely, the Vespa GTS Super 150 and the Vespa GTS Super 300. We approached Vespa and found that these scooters are on their way for an India launch soon. The GTS collection is a step above the current Vespa VX or Vespa S models available in India. They are larger in size compared to the VX, with a robust yet retro design to them.

The GTS Super 300 seen at the IBW had a windscreen and a rear luggage holder, all part of the accessories list provided by Vespa. Also seen on the black GTS 300 was a digi-analogue console. It is powered by a 278cc, four-stroke, fuel-injected and liquid-cooled engine. The GTS 300 churns out 21.2bhp at 7,500rpm and maximum torque of 2.3kgm is churned at 7,500rpm. Suspension duties are carried out by a single front shock absorber and a dual suspension system at rear. Both front and rear disc brakes are equipped with ABS. Smart five-spoke wheels are provided on both the scooters.
The GTS Super 150 seen at the India Bike Week was painted in sporty red, with black and silver, five-spoke wheels. It had a fully analogue instruments console that was legible. The GTS 150 is powered by a 154.8cc, four-stroke, single cylinder and air-cooled engine that is fed by a fuel-injector. It makes maximum power of 11.7bhp at 7,500rpm, with peak torque of 1.2kgm churn at 5,000rpm. Power is transferred to the rear wheel via CVT automatic transmission. Suspension duty is carried out by a single side-mounted shock absorber upfront, and the rear gets dual suspension. Disc brakes are provided both, in front and at the rear, for safety. It has a nine liter fuel tank.
These two scooters on display were quite similar to each other while the major difference between them was in the details. However, there is no word on how Vespa will price the two undoubted scooters here. We will just have to wait and see. More as we get the news.
