In terms of exterior design, the new Vespa GTS i.e. Super calls to mind the Primavera, particularly through the positioning of its headlight and turn signals. The new scooter also comes with a larger under-seat storage area and a next-generation dashboard.

Another new feature is the Vespa Multimedia Platform. After downloading the dedicated app, users can plug their smartphone into the scooter's interface to view a range of information, from tachometer readings to average fuel consumption, torque and speed. In addition, the platform provides access to maps and directions, including information on service stations and Vespa dealerships nearby.

The ABS/ASR models, equipped with a dual braking system and a traction control system, also include a sensor-based tire pressure control system.

The Vespa GTS i.e. Super 125 and GTS i.e. Super 300 are priced at €4,599 and €4,999 respectively. The ABS and ASR versions are available for an additional €300 ($410).
