Vespa Gtv: Firm's most powerful model unveiled at Eicma 2022

1 of 4

The second generation of the Gtv has been released at Eicma and is equipped with the most powerful engine in a Vespa to date.

The 278cc single cylinder engine boasts 23.8bhp, generated by its 4-valve, liquid cooled, fuel injected configuration.

Traction control and ABS are standard and the journey begins with a keyless, button starter.

A new digital LCD display greets the rider and in addition to the expected vehicle data, can show calls, message and music notifications if the Gtv is connected to a smartphone.

Comfort for urban riding is supplied by a single piece seat which is street legal for two-up riding.

Additionally, a single arm hydraulic shock absorber at the front and a double hydraulic shock absorber with 4-position preload adjustment at the rear soak up the potholes.

Stylistically the Gtv combines the tradition of the first edition released in 2006 with a modern twist.

The headlamp, positioned low on the front mudguard, and the exposed metal tubular handlebar remain.

The lights, including the headlight, are now LED while a USB port is a standard feature, located inside the compartment of the leg shield, while a larger under-seat compartment features on interior light.
