The launch event was marked by a herculean effort of gathering over 1,000 Vespa riders in the Greater Manila Area—from Malolos, Bulacan to Lipa, Batangas—for an evening of fun, games, raffle draws, and entertainment. Along with esteemed media guests, KOLs, and Vespa Philippines executives, the Vespa Festa crowd was the first in the Philippines to witness the bold and intriguing side of the Vespa GTV.

For the love of the road

The Vespa GTV is designed for road-cruiser enthusiasts to enjoy the chase, relish in the joy of the road, and journey with a passion for the experience rather than the destination.

With an ergonomic and unique design for the most powerful riding experience, the Vespa GTV is powered by a 300cc high-performance single-cylinder engine with 4-valve timing, liquid cooling, and electronic fuel injection. With more than 23 hp and accredited with a power of 17.5 kW, the engine is the most powerful ever in a Vespa.

Style made sportier

The contemporary Vespa GTV evolves under the sign of sportiness and includes the significant stylistic improvements introduced in the new GTS range, with even more detailed finishes and a construction quality that elevates it to unprecedented levels.

The headlight clusters are now full LED, including the characteristic low headlamp, whereas the new instrumentation maintains the elegant circular shape but it is now entirely digital, a solution that makes it possible to take full advantage of the features offered by the Vespa MIA connectivity system, available as a separate accessory.

The instrumentation is connected to the handlebar using an original cantilevered bracket and enveloped by a small yet aggressive top fairing clearly inspired by the racing world.

At the center of the front shield, the unmistakable “neck-tie” has sporty lateral slits and is enhanced by decorations with orange edging. The five-spoke design of the wheel rims is also new, painted matt black with an orange graphic on the channel.

Another distinctive element of Vespa GTV is the single-seat saddle with a racing look and the rear part which is installation-ready for a hardcover color-coded to match the body, reminiscent of the typical racing Vespa fairings. The cover is available as a separate accessory and can be removed. In any case, the saddle is street-legal for two-up riding and features ample and comfortable seating, characterized by a technical pattern and horizontal thermobonding with contrasting orange stitching on the edges.

The overall look of the Vespa GTV stands out for its matte black finish that characterizes the frame of the low headlamp and the rear light cluster, its profile along the perimeter of the body, its passenger grab handle and footpegs, its silencer cover, its rearview mirrors, and the instrumentation bracket and frame.

The new Vespa GTV is available in the dedicated Beige Sabbia Glossy and Grey Titanio Glossy color scheme with contrasting orange graphics that run diagonally across the side panels.

Hi-tech equipment package

The Vespa GTV embraces the technology and the traveling vocation typical of the famous “Vespone”. Therefore, the ergonomics are perfectly Vespa, enhanced by the comfort of the large body; the seat position is natural and allows total control over the vehicle and absolute comfort even over long distances.

Convenience and practicality are highlighted by the introduction of the keyless system, which lets you start it without having to insert a traditional key. On the back of the shield, the classic ignition switch with lock is replaced by a practical knob. To start the vehicle, simply press it and turn it to the ON position. The engine is started in the usual way, via the button located on the right-hand control block.

The implementation of new digital LCD instrumentation allows a wealth of travel information to be displayed (maximum speed, average speed, instant consumption, average consumption, range, and battery charge status), as well as all call, message and music notifications if the vehicle is connected to a smartphone through the VESPA MIA system (available as a separate accessory).

The USB port comes as standard equipment, located in the storage compartment on the back of the shield. On the safety front, standard features include ASR electronic traction control and the anti-lock braking system (ABS).

In the Philippines, the Vespa GTV 2023 will retail for PHP 425,000.00. For purchase and inquiries, visit the nearest Vespa dealer near you.
