Well I have a Piaggio MP3 500 and BV350.
Now I have a 2020 Vespa Sei Giorni. They did PDI today and I am picking it up tomorrow.

Here's the tech doing to PDI.

Welcome to the GTS owners club. There are lots of other scooters in this world, but the GTS/GTV is the pinnacle of the evolution of the classic scooter. Ride and enjoy!

It just came in last Friday Oct 25th. I was at the dealer looking at the box in the parking lot wondering what was inside when I was dropping off my BV350.
They said it was a surprise delivery they were not expecting.

I could not pick it up today because it hadn't had the state inspection done yet and being the last day of the month there was a long line at the shop they use for inspections.
If it is not done tomorrow i am just calling the dealership I worked at and make an appointment to get it inspected ASAP and just ride there. State law allows transporting a non inspected vehicle to an inspection station if you have an appointment. But I am sure they will get it done first thing in the AM.

Very beautiful, i say nothing about color (it is the same as my scooter ). In my zones it turns an "6 giorni" with also the numbers on the sides.

Looks like you have a trifecta of perfection for your scooter line-up. I'd certainly love to have a collection as simple as that. Only thing that would be missing for me would be a TMax.

Congratulations! Love the look of the GTV. I hope the guy doing the PDI isn't too distracted and overlooks something. Check the fluids before you ride off. Just sayin

Stopped by a local Italian Sub and Pizza shop I eat at alot and parked out front on the sidewalk. Was talking to the guys at the counter and said go look at my new ride. They went nuts. one guy came back in sayin, "Sei Giorni Six Days" Top of the line scooter you got there.

Was at the BMW dealer picking up my new helmet and got 3 complaints on my "cool scooter".
And I met the brother of the owner of the other Sei Giorni the dealer sold a few weeks ago a few towns away from me. ( He was picking up a used Harley. ) So we might see each other some time on the road.

Love that GTS
You have really been around the product line with both the MP3 and
Bev 350. I also went with the GTS 300 - I just had to have the classic Vespa look.

Related/Unrelated comment: In Minnesota we got rid of the State Inspections. They were a money making scam. We don't need no stinking badges here!!

Wishing you good miles and memories on the Italian Classic.

Yep wouldn't want someone to let you know you need brakes or tires or front end work. OR your frame is rusted out form salt. Yes that was a problem with Toyota Pick Ups.


I like the light on the fender of the GTV.
It's been cold and had to test ride the BV350 for a few hundred miles so the Sei Giorni only has little over 130 miles.

Going to see about getting some stone guard film installed behind the front tire.

And want to get the Vespa Crash Bars in Black and will need to swap the rear grab rail out for a black one or add a black rear rack to have to option of a toro case..

Might consider scuffing that area and spraying some (Toyota's use it) chip guard there?

Finally i know Web-Tech and ... yes, it was how i imagined it ... (of many of you i don't know the appearance).
Question: what did you use to fix the license plate? They have a strange shape ...

Getting a place to put on 3M stone guard film. Doesn't affect the paint and is replaceable.
