The new i-get engine makes its début on the Vespa flagship in the 125 and 150 cc engine sizes. The large GTS uses the most technologically advanced powerplant: brilliant performance and low consumption. Both models have electronic injection, four-valve timing and liquid cooling. These are engines at the top of their respective categories in terms of performance and environmental friendliness. And the new Piaggio Group patented Start & Stop system called RISS (Regulator Inverter Start & Stop System) makes its début on the Vespa. This system does away with the traditional starter motor, which is replaced by a brushless “direct mount” electrical unit installed directly on the crankshaft.
Also, now standard on all models in the Vespa GTS range are the remote control to open the saddle and Bike Finder, extremely convenient for finding your Vespa in a crowded car park by making the turn indicators flash. The large, convenient, comfortable and extraordinarily protective Vespa GTS combines its elegantly urban and city spirit with the travel and tourism vocation which large Vespas have always embodied. From the GS in 1955 to the PX in 1978. Vespa therefore reaffirms its technological cutting-edge which has always marked its past, and introduces one of the most modern, advanced and safest vehicles in the world.
