High Performance Engine

The Vespa GTS HPE Supertech is the most technologically advanced Vespa EVER.  The GTS model is not new, it has been in production since 2006 and has been phenomenally popular powered by a terrific Quasar engine.  By 2019 and with new Euro ratings to be met regularly it was time to build an entire new engine to go into the GTS.  The HPE Supertech packs an additional 12% of power and 18% more torque than the previous engine.  The aim was to increase performance and reduce fuel consumption, the result achieved thanks to meticulous work by Piaggio technicians across a large number of components, with the aim of optimising thermodynamic output and reducing friction.

The adoption of a new head and a piston with redesigned architecture results in a highly efficient combustion chamber, which also benefits from valves and ducts of increased diameter inside the head. The single camshaft distribution system with roller tappets gains a camshaft with optimised timing and valve lift speeds. The introduction of a new high pressure multi-jet injector also helps to improve combustion. Lastly, a more generous intake line improves the torque delivered at low revs and ensures an exceptionally smooth ride at any speed. The new iridium ignition spark-plug ensures greater durability.

The transmission has also been dramatically redesigned: the CVT boasts a new belt, new geometry and new materials, all enveloped by a new cover coated with sound-absorbent material, to reduce mechanical noise, also aided by a new, more rigid clutch drum.

The engine is controlled by a latest-generation Magneti Marelli MIUG4 ECU, already compatible with the future Euro 5 standard.

The body of the GTS has also been redesigned to fit the new engine and some elegant design changes incorporated such as the new horn cover on the redesigned shield while the GTS still has a full steel frame.

Aesthetically, Vespa GTS SuperTech is characterised by its rims and decorations on the typical horn cover, offered with a special matte black finish. The yellow painted front shock spring serves as an original element that contrasts against the two available colors of Volcano Black and Matter Grey. Even the seat features a “hi-tech” finish, with double upholstery and two-colour stitching with yellow sections.

The new Vespa GTS SuperTech represents the top of the Vespa GTS range, the maximum expression of sport and technology. GTS SuperTech is the first large-bodied Vespa to adopt a fully digital instrument cluster thanks to a 4.3″ full color TFT display. The instrument cluster, as well as displaying all the classic information such as speed, total and partial mileage, ambient temperature, and fuel level, also serves as the display for the VESPA MIA smartphone connectivity system.

The safety systems on the GTS is state of the art with ASR electronic traction control, once available only on the best motorcycles, to prevent wheel spin. The electronic control package is rounded off with the ABS anti-braking system. Both come as standard on Vespa GTS family models.

The Vespa GTS HPE Supertech is an impressive step up and illustrates why the iconic Vespa is still the industry leader.
