The new Vespa GTS SuperTech represents the top of the Vespa GTS range and the first large-bodied Vespa to adopt a fully digital instrument cluster thanks to a 4.3″ full colour TFT display. The instrument cluster, as well as displaying all the classic information such as speed, total and partial mileage, ambient temperature, and fuel level, also serves as the display for the VESPA MIA smartphone connectivity system.
Aesthetically, the SuperTech is characterised by its rims and decorations on the typical horn cover, offered with a special matte black finish. The yellow painted front shock spring contrasts against the two available colours of Volcano Black and Matter Grey. The new seat features a “hi-tech” finish, with double upholstery and two-tone stitching
The Piaggio 300 hpe engine: the most powerful Vespa of all time
The new Vespa GTS boasts the latest evolution of the 300 cc single-cylinder, 4 stroke, 4 valve, liquid-cooled engine with electronic injection: the result of Piaggio Group R&D experience, and known as 300 hpe (High Performance Engine), the unit has benefited from extensive work aimed at increasing performance while at the same time reducing fuel consumption. With respect to the previous version, maximum power comes in at 17.5 kW (23.8 HP) at 8250 rpm, which translates into a 12% increase, while maximum torque, equating to 26 Nm at 5250 rpm, has been boosted by 18%. Improvements that are paired with a significant reduction in consumption, with mileage increasing from 29.4 km/l to 31 km/l in the WMTC cycle.
This is the most high-performance engine ever mounted on a Vespa, a result achieved thanks to meticulous work by Piaggio technicians across a large number of components, with the aim of optimising thermodynamic output and reducing friction. The adoption of a new head and a piston with redesigned architecture results in a highly efficient combustion chamber, which also benefits from valves and ducts of increased diameter inside the head. The single camshaft distribution system with roller tappets gains a camshaft with optimised timing and valve lift speeds. The introduction of a new high pressure multi-jet injector also helps to improve combustion. Lastly, a more generous intake line improves the torque delivered at low revs and ensures an exceptionally smooth ride at any speed. The new iridium ignition spark-plug ensures greater durability.
The transmission has also been dramatically redesigned: the CVT boasts a new belt, new geometry and new materials, all enveloped by a new cover coated with sound-absorbent material, to reduce mechanical noise, also aided by a new, more rigid clutch drum.
The engine is controlled by a latest-generation Magneti Marelli MIUG4 ECU, already compatible with the future Euro 5 standard.
