review by Jon K.
I got my Vespa GTS 300 Super when it was just over a year old
and had hardly any miles. I absolutely love it! It's great in
traffic because it can easily keep up when things start to speed
up, and when things slow down it's nippy enough to weave your
way through. The GTS 300 Super feels really well balanced compared
to other scooters I've ridden, even though it might be a bit
heavier - but that helps with the stability at speed.
I think the GTS 300 Super looks good too, as do most Vespas.
The old-school looks are funny too because most drivers think
you are going to be slow off the line.. And then the light turns
green and BAM! You're away!
It's got great brakes too. They're from Brembo and do a great
job of bringing the scooter to a halt quickly and with progressive
The only downsides to the Vespa GTS 300 Super are pretty small.
It's a little bit more expensive than other similar scooters
- but I figure it'll last longer and not drop in value as much
so that's fine. Also also there isn't much storage room under
the seat but that's a pretty minor complaint.
All in all, I think I made the right choice with the Vespa GTS
300 Super. It suits me for city commuting. And when I need to
go a bit further afield, it's got the pace to get me there before
the sun goes down!
