Below are excerpts from a recent review of the Vespa GTS 300 Super Sport SE, with ABS, by David Harrington from the Just Gotta Scoot blog.

"New for the 2015 GTS 300, the lower shock mount is now hinged. This allows the front suspension to maintain correct geometry with no lateral flexing. In combination with the monocoque steel chassis the enhanced front suspension contributes to a smooth and stable ride. Also new is the Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS) with electronic stability control."

"The stock seat is one of the most comfortable out there. The seat, floorboards and hand controls seem to fit an unusually wide range of physical sizes equally well."

"Turn the key to the on position, wait for the fuel pump to charge, grab a brake lever, and press the starter button on the right-hand control - the Vespa GTS 300 Super will fire right up. No choke, no "playing" with the throttle, just immediate, smooth running. Twist the right-hand grip and one is launched, briskly, into whatever riding adventure one has selected for the day."

"I like the Vespa GTS 300 Super, I like it a lot. Some would argue that a small-frame Vespa like the new Primavera or Sprint in 150cc is a better choice for riding around town. Not to take anything away from those machines, but I like having a little surplus power and general capability to hand even when cruising parkways at something resembling the legal speed limit (30MPH.... ish....). I still think a big-wheeled scooter is a more capable overall performer, but I wouldn't be afraid to take a Vespa GTS out touring."
