I hear they bundle it with a framed picture of the Loch Ness Monster and Big Foot.

nice rendering of a dream. its not gonna happen. the front suspension wouldnt have any travel the way pictured. if they would just make short case 500 engine I will make my own. the scarabeo 500 engine is too porky to fit.

It'll never happen - at least not in the current GTS body.

Can you imagine the results of 500cc on 12" wheels?

Stock up on body bags now.

True Americans (and freedom loving people everywhere) are holding out for the Vespa GTS 1500, known as "The Harley Killer". Mine will be the limited edition "Sportster Smasher", with a few performance mods straight from the factory, including Akrapovic exhaust, Brembo brakes, 50 gram Dr. Pulley sliders, and of course, "Sportster Smasher" badging. Two paint options will be available: Dragon Red with flames or Nero Opaco with skulls and crossbones.

A boost gauge...if a shot-to-pieces scoot can be seen on this here site with one, surely there should be one on something like this.

Otherwise, I'm with Jess on this - cool rendering (kids with Photoshop and InDesign these days...!), but no, BS all over. Whoever perpetrated this, waterboarding's too good for 'em. Laughing emoticon

The unicorn is included, it's in the pet carrier. You have to purchase the factory top box if you want the elephant.

Upon Closer Inspection
Google Translate to the rescue, sorta:

"Vespa GTS 500 ie Piaggio - Rendering and graphics by Tommaso D'Amico. Proposal for a more powerful edition and technologically advanced scooter par excellence the most famous and loved the world, not to mention and omit its own characteristics that made it emblematic of its kind."

Upshot: False alarm, y'all.

Meanwhile...

Speedo displays max speed of 160kph.

Seriously? I clocked an indicated 140 on Melody less than a month ago.

This is one digital pipe dream where I want to check out that pipe myself...
