Well, I've had many bikes and scooters of various sizes over the last 42 years, and a few machines stand out from the crowd. In Bikes; XT500. FJ1200. and now the Vespa 300 gts. this scoot has a bit of everything, commuting, weekend runs, and touring, yes that's right touring, with a top box fitted and room under the seat, together with sharp acceleration and motorway speeds , happy days. If you're thinking of buying a scoot, give one of these serious consideration, has a top speed… Read Full Review

The ultimate Vespa: attractive (especially in white), fast, timeless design. Kitted mine out with Leo Vince pipe and large windscreen - now it is a joy to ride on 400 series highways (where it comfortably does 100-120kph despite barn door of a windscreen that creates a totally still pocket of air). Would love a manual transmission option for a more engaging ride. I've owned 20+ bikes over the years (cruisers, touring, sport-touring, runabouts, sidecar rigs) and for combination of… Read Full Review

I owned a GTS 300 for 2 years and commuted 110 miles a day on it. Brilliant in town and fine on motorway. I sold it last year (losing only about £1100 over the 2 years and 26000 km) for a motorbike and regretted it. I'm selling the bike now and getting another GTS 300: more practical, more economical, better looking. Only downside to it is the service schedule (every 3000 kms) but it's a small price to pay to keep the bike in shape… Read Full Review

I've gone from over 10 years riding sports bikes to the GTS 300. Simply put, it's a hoot. Comfortable, well built and striking in the flesh. It's not fast in a bike sense but is nippier than almost anything else around town. And a town bike it certainly is, I wouldn't fancy a motorway blast, although performance wise the Vespa could clearly cope.
I kitted mine out with all the chrome kit and a top box and it made the front end go all wobbly at 30-40mph but these are minor details when you… Read Full Review

Awesome machine... have owned 4 ET4's, 1 GT200 and 1 LX125 and this is by far the best - I did previously like the LX best but they lack a bit of power up hills. The GTS 300 Super has superb acceleration - no probs up hills and has good looks. The GT200 always felt a bit commuter-ish wheras the GTS 300 super feels sporty. Very pleased with it. I'll take it to the Whitby Easter rally where the scooterists can admire it and then tut at it not being an automatic-nothing changes but who cares:0)… Read Full Review

As soon as my local Vespa dealership got hold of one of the new Vespa 300's, I went down to have a look and take it for a little spin. I was very impressed with the majority that the bike had to offer.
The GTS 300 retains a similar classic look to the existing 250 (minus to the luggage rack) with the addition of black alloy wheels which add a sporty touch. The acceleration and torque is superb and the 22bhp engine makes this lethal in the city due to the small chassis! Like all modern… Read Full Review
