DESCRIPTION

NEW VESPA GTS

The technological advancement of the new Vespa GTS is spectacular - the largest and most powerful member of the Vespa family - which sets new standards in safety and electronic riding support equipment:

- New front ESS suspension

- 2-channel ABS braking system

- ASR traction control

- Vespa Multimedia Platform to connect your smartphone to your Vespa

Now the Vespa GTS is new and improved with the adoption of the most advanced technological electronic riding support systems.

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.

New safety features:

For the first time, Vespa GTS and Vespa GTS Super adopt important technical advancements in terms of safety and comfort. The Piaggio Group holds patents on the best technology currently available, thanks in part to the experience gained by its motorcycle brands at top levels. The Piaggio Group was the first company in the world to introduce electronic systems on scooters which were once available only on the best motorcycles, such as ASR and ABS, two active safety systems which are now also available on the Vespa GTS and Vespa GTS Super range. 

Each wheel has a revolution detection system – a sensor and a tone wheel – which instantly reads the speed and deceleration of the wheel with respect to that of the vehicle. The sensors dialogue with a 2-channel hydraulic control unit which activates the ABS system if one of the two wheels decelerates abruptly with respect to the vehicle, avoiding locking and ensuring stability and efficient braking even on road surfaces with a low friction coefficient.

The ASR system uses the electronics and the ABS sensors to compare the rotation speed of the two wheels. When the sensors detect excessive speed on the rear wheel compared to the front, the ECU intervenes (first on the advance and then, if necessary, on injection as well) to prevent slipping and avoid losing control of the vehicle.

The technical equipment on the Vespa GTS and Vespa GTS Super includes the adoption of a new ESS front suspension, already introduced successfully on the Vespa Primavera and Vespa Sprint. While still maintaining the classic single arm driven pivot suspension on the front, typical of Vespa traditions, the new Vespa GTS and Vespa GTS Super range adopts a completely redesigned system capable of cutting sliding friction in half. The shock absorber is now fixed to the trailing arm with a hinged pin whereas it was previously bolted on rigidly. By increasing suspension slide, riding comfort is increased, as well as the ability to absorb bumps on the road which the rider does not feel, ensuring a perfectly fluid, relaxing and safe ride.
