Other differences between the Vespa GTS 300 Super and the 250 version are mostly cosmetic, including grills in the side panels, a stylistic nod to older sporting Vespas, revisions to the leg shields using different chrome and vents, red painted suspension components and new shaped seats (there are two options, comfort and sport). The wheels are cool two-tone alloys allegedly reminiscent of the old unboltable rims of earlier Vespas – not sure about that, but they look good. The rear luggage rack of the 250 isn’t standard on the 300, which is a surprise, though Piaggio says this is because the 300 is sportier and needs to have the cleaner rear end appearance. But the underseat storage isn’t great – Piaggio’s press shots showing a helmet in there don’t tell you it’s an open face belonging to a pin-headed pygmy. My hulking great Arai didn’t come close to squeezing in, so most buyers will have to fork out extra for a rack and probably a top box too if the GTS is going to be any use for getting to work with a briefcase and wet weather gear.
