But what has stayed the same?
There are so few body parts left unchanged from the original GT200.

Thought I would start a list.

The indicator holes are still the same.
The vespa badge of the front is unchanged.
The piaggio badge is still the same although it is mounted differently on different models.
The footpegs.
The plastic covers for the swing arm bolt access holes.
Still rocking the same size tyres.
Glove box door.



I'm not sure about the floorboards.....

Like most of us, she's put on an extra 20kg over those 20 years. She hides it well though.

Something I would have changed over the years is the rake of the headlamp.

I know it's probably done for aerodynamics n all that, but all previous Vespas had an upright headlamp, and I still think it look better..


SOMETHING ALONG THE LINES..

What model year did the new headlight rake start?

All the large frame modern autos have had the raked back headlamp, the PX 125/150 and 200 were the last large frame Vespas with upright headlamps


2003 GT200


PX200

I presume the monocoque body design has remained unchanged since the release of the 2003 GT 200?

The body has changed several times. The indicator recesses are unchanged.

Indicator recesses are changed in size and form (front and back) at 2023 facelift. Indicators are now mounted without visible screws on the outside.

What is holding the indicators in place? The rusty screws will be sorely missed.

I'm talking about the geometry of the chassis, how has it been altered from 2003?
