The GTS 300 Super is Vespa’s biggest scooter to date and blends classic Vespa style with bang-up-to-date performance, refinement and sophistication. At 70mpg-plus and group 7 insurance it's cheap to run, too.   

Thanks to it's decent-sized (for a scoot) motor the GTS300 is up to more than just cutting across cities and suburbia - get the extra luggage, load it up and it’ll happily take you for a long weekend away touring. It pulls well up to 70mph and will keep going to a top speed of just over 80 so there's no need to fear the motorway.

The Vespa GTS300 is one of the sweetest handling scooters you can get. Wriggle through town, between cars, over mini-roundabouts, in and out of car parks and it rewards with perfect balance and steering. It even feels stable at speed.

Vespas are expensive compared to other less established scooter brands, but they do hold their value well so in the logn run it can pay off.
