Made-for-India Vespa GTS Scooter Spotted Testing

The recently updated GTS 300 sold overseas looks similar to the Vespa seen on the riding test.

Vespa’s big-capacity GTS 300 line-up has consistently failed to make inroads in the Indian market, but recent spy images suggest that there is still hope. So let’s take a closer look at Vespa GTS Scooter.

India-spec Vespa GTS Spied Testing: Details

Piaggio India is making a new, more powerful engine specifically for the Indian market, as we mentioned earlier. Unfortunately, there has been no progress on this front for a long time. The Vespa seen on test here has design cues from the international-spec GTS 300 maxi-scooter. Still, its powerplant differs from anything currently available in the international or Indian markets. The engine is much bigger than the 150cc mill in a vehicle like the Vespa Racing Sixties 150.

Unlike the internationally sold GTS 300, which has liquid cooling, the engine seen here is air-cooled. Although the GTS 300 engine is not used in any Piaggio vehicle offered in India, it is used in the Keeway Viest 300 maxi-scooter and the Keeway Sixties 300i neo-retro scooter.

The Vespa scooter seen here also gets a digital dash unit, which in terms of form, resembles the top-of-the-line Vespa GTS 300 Supertech variation. However, you should note that this model is the first Vespa with a fully digital instrument panel. It is still determined whether Vespa will equip the production-spec scooter with an LCD or a TFT dash similar to the GTS 300 Supertec.

Another strange thing about this model is that it has a rear drum brake, which is not present on any Vespa GTS 300 model worldwide. Despite the maxi-scooter status, Vespa is trying to keep expenses as low as possible.

It is not clear when this large-capacity Vespa made for India will go on sale, but when it does go on sale, it will be priced much higher in India than the Italian brand’s current flagship model, the Vespa Racing Sixties 150. which cost Rs. 1.5 lakh rupees.
