The wider body (from 2015 forward) seats will only fit on 2015 forward GTSs. The earlier years will fit earlier year GTSs.

A lot of folks don't like the GTV seats because you are seated forward about an inch. I have both the GTV and the Eurogel seat for my GTV and find them both equally comfortable. I prefer the gel when traveling and the GTV the rest of the time, exspecially if I am going to have a passenger.

FWIW, I am 6'2" with a 32" inseam.

while I am only 5 ft 11 in, I am all legs, short torso so sit pretty far back on my Vespa 300 seat. I would think that the GTV seat, while very cool looking, might not be comfortable, but I have never tried it so don't really know. Curious what you do.

It looks like it depends on "WHICH 300"?

Rosscooter answered that question above. The '15s and newer use a wider seat pan. The seats are interchangeable within the newer or older series.
