Piaggio USA Launches New Vespa 250cc Granturismo Sport Scooter in the U.S.
Vespa GTS 250 i.e. Brings Unprecedented Combination of Style and Performance to the Scooter Market

The new GTS 250 was launched at the 2005 IMS show in Long Beach.

Sixty years after introducing the first scooter in post-war Europe, Piaggio, the manufacturer of the world-famous Vespa scooter, has announced the release of the fastest and most technologically-advanced Vespa in history -- the Granturismo Sport 250 i.e. With its commanding engine displacement and sleek design, the GTS 250 i.e. is the perfect choice for customers seeking both outstanding performance and style.

At the heart of the GTS 250 i.e. is a sophisticated 250cc four-stroke, liquid-cooled electronic injection engine, the largest engine displacement in the Vespa range. The new system considerably reduces both emissions and fuel consumption and provides immediate throttle response and speed that dramatically increases precise handling.

 

“The GTS 250 i.e. builds on Vespa’s tradition of smart functionality and design by adding the most powerful and sophisticated Vespa engine to date,” says Paolo Timoni, CEO of Piaggio USA. “This scooter is sure to ignite passion in riders and become the industry's new benchmark for urban mobility.”
 

 

Due to arrive from Italy at authorized Piaggio USA and Vespa dealers across the country by mid-December 2005, the GTS 250 i.e. has a launch MSRP of $5,799. This includes a one-year roadside warranty. 

One of the very first scooters in the 250cc category to exceed strict U.S. CARB emissions standards, the GTS 250 i.e. is built on a steel frame that echoes the design of the current popular Vespa Granturismo model. The GTS 250 i.e. features a redesigned tail light, instrument panel and a vintage-style rear rack. Riders will also enjoy the streamlined engineering that simulates a racing scooter, along with new, thinner side panels that visually push the entire vehicle forward.

"Consumers are increasingly realizing that scooters provide an economically- and environmentally-friendly solution to both the cost of transportation and fuel conservation," Timoni said. "The GTS 250 i.e. is the most eco-friendly Vespa ever built, has great style, superior handling and offers the best and most enjoyable riding experience in the scooter category."

The GTS 250 i.e. provides ample storage under its double-stitched seat, large enough to hold two scooter helmets or numerous other items. Its precise ergonomic design and response system make the scooter both comfortable and easy to maneuver, whether touring or scooting through city traffic.

To further enhance its sporty look, the GTS 250 i.e. is available in three eye-catching hues -- Dragon Red with a black seat, Shiny Black with a tan seat and Excalibur Gray with a black seat. Custom accessories for the GTS 250 i.e. include a top case, windscreen, chrome kit and more
