Good gas mileage. Great in traffic.
Needs a 500cc engine. Never enough power.
This is my first scooter. I have a Goldwing and the GT200. I am not riding my Goldwing because the Vespa is such a great commuter. It runs 65-70 on the freeway easy and gets almost 70mpg. Have had it to 77mph according to the speedo. It feels a lot like a BMW F650 I used to have...really. The handling is good with decent brakes. I love the twist and go in trafic. The GT200 is stable at speed, much more so than you would think. Skip the cheap Vespa topcase. I got it - it works but aftermarket would be better. I think. Overall a very good scooter but like I said my first so I am comparing to motorcycles I have owned... Recommended.
