Vespa have unveiled all the updates to their 2023 Gtv, styling, technology and the highest power ever seen in a Vespa are on the list. Check out all the changes to the popular model here...

From its birth in 2006, the Vespa Gtv has been the top tier of styling in the Vespa family thanks to the use of the “faro basso” (low headlamp), positioned on the front mudguard, and the exposed metal tubular handlebar, stylistic throwbacks to the most iconic models.

At EICMA 2022, the Vespa Gtv débuts in a completely revolutionised look, yet sill retaining Vespa's core styling cues.

At EICMA 2022, the Vespa Gtv débuts in a completely revolutionised look, maintaining the inevitable traits of it origins, but combining them with a modern technological equipment package and brand new sporty finishes. 

The new Vespa Gtv is powered by the gritty 300 hpe (High Performance Engine) single cylinder, with four-valve timing, liquid cooling, and electronic fuel injection. Accredited with power of 17.5kW (23.8hp), it is the highest performance engine ever fitted on a Vespa.



 

The headlight clusters are now full LED, including the characteristic low headlamp, the new instrumentation maintains the elegant circular shape but it is now entirely digital, making 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 that Vespa say is clearly inspired by the racing world. Enhanced by three horizontal slits, it is painted orange, a shade that also characterises the Vespa Gtv’s graphics and contrasting details.

At the centre of the front shield, the unmistakeable “neck-tie” has sporty lateral slits and is enhanced by 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 two-tone saddle and the rear part which is installation ready for a hard cover colour coded to match the body. The cover is available as a separate accessory and can be removed. The new Vespa Gtv is available in the dedicated Beige Avvolgente Opaco colour scheme with contrasting orange graphics that run diagonally across the side panels.



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, 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).
