I'm running the akro on my GTS. Happy with the exhaust note and volume but the end cap is cracking and splitting, not very happy about that when they cost so much. I see you can buy spare end caps, mainly form the US but they cost so much, nearly half the price of the exhaust itself. I think I will either see if I can get an end cap fabricated out of stainless of look out for a new exhaust.

I wouldn't buy another akropovic.
No problems with my Remus but I did have to get it repainted. Other than that the build quality is solid and while it is loud you can really feel the engine and every pop and growl. The only complaint I have about my build is the bike shudders like crazy and so I constantly have to tighten things down. I wound up having to glue down the grommet for the clock as it kept working it's way free. When idling you can feel the scoot just wanting to go as if saying "hey, why the hell are we stopped?".

Does anyone know if the Toro tTi-Hex Exhaus is any good?

https://www.amazon.co.uk/i/dp/B07PQT4ZPP/ref=mp_s_a_1_2?dchild=1&keywords=gts+300+exhaust&qid=1591022386&sr=8-2

It seems cheap to me but if anyone has bought one (or knows someone who has) I'd love to hear your feedback.

I posted my Delkevic SS exhaust system for a 300GTS in For Sale here and now listed on page 9 with a picture. I have more pics for serious lookers.

It's a very well made muffler from the UK and distributed in the USA too. The header pipe is SS, uses an OE Vespa gasket and the system comes with all hardware and fittings to easily install on your Vespa. The DB killer is in the muffler but bit loud for my ears and I decided to keep whats left of my hearing and go back to the OE muffler. It is very similar to certain models of the Scorpion mufflers, also made in the UK.
Honestly it has a nice bark to it, could also be called a throaty sound. There are a few YT videos on the web with it on MC's but none on scoots.

Looks quite short so will be loud, if thats around your budget have a look at Black Widow exhausts.

Not for the 300 but I have the Sprint coming which has the black wheels so ordered the black heat shield. My bikes get race exhausts but my scoot is sticking with original sound.

You are correct... I've had it a long time and got the part numbers confused. It was probably one of the first ones imported to the United States.

I did the same when I had the Malossi kit installed - I just went with the Malossi exhaust as part of the full kit.

At first the louder exhaust note was a bit off-putting because I'd become so used to the relative quietness of the OEM exhaust, but that's changed - I really enjoy the louder "roar" when I accelerate. It an attention-getting sound, too, as I regularly see people along the street turn their heads when I ride by.

Unfortunately the carbon fiber end cap took a hit from road debris early on. I removed it and considered ordering a replacement. I don't know how much it would cost to replace, but once I got it off, I don't think the naked exhaust looks bad, so I'm going to leave it as is.

I got the Malossi exhaust from scooterpartsco.
I do not consider it loud, but a nice throaty sound.
I also put Malossi suspension & Malossi upgear kit in it.( all from scooterpartsco.com)
I'm very happy with the Molossi upgrades.
Last weekend I did a nice 315 mile ride up to the NC mountains, some very tight curves & climbs that it handled exceptionally well.

Seeing as how the scoot appears to be owned by a Northern Soul Mod that isn't a surprise. Basically it's the wave of Mods after my generation (no pun intended ). Nice looking ride BTW.

I'm with the stock exhaust group on this one. To me Vespa is a scooter, not a motorbike. I also played with a thought of maybe replacing my stock muffler on GTS SS HPE with the Scorpion Red Power one but it made me think I'd look more of a big bike wannabe who couldn't afford one so ended up with a souped-up scooter with aftermarket parts.

For me personally Piaggio did a good job with the GTS muffler, Vespa is all about the curves and the stock exhaust does follow those lines too. What I did on mine though was to carbon paint my polished stainless heat shield in matte black, it's a Super Sport model after all and that much chrome sticking out from the right hand side just isn't a great visual match.

So now it looks like the one that comes on Racing Sixties or Sei Giorni, black, understated, low profile and attractive to boot.

The only other bit I'd possibly change is the stock seat, I really like the one that comes on Sei Giorni, the back of it has a nice visual flow and (in my view) matches the sloping back and the cowls better.

That's me, I know many will beg to differ.

Cheers!

Thanks for your your summary of the stock exhaust, you raise some interesting points.

Changing the seat is a bit like buying a new pair of shoes, you want a comfy fit especially if you are riding any distances.

It's probably worth doing some research on here before taking the plunge and changing your existing seat.

Here's a couple of threads I've come across, but there's probably more if you use the MV search feature.

I did the same, except I went for satin black. But then I found I had to paint the whole exhaust to match! I was using engine enamel anyway. The curves of the exhaust to go well with the shape of the Vespa, much better than any of these straight tube aftermarket exhausts.

The modern Vespas have far too much chrome, unless you are going for that look.

Hi Andrew,
I have no intereat in a split seat, unfortunatelly...not my cup of tea. Just the single standard seat which comes stock on the current Sei Giorni.
It's a straight swap with a GTS Super Sport, so no worries there, cheers.

Yeah mate, good to know we share similar sentiments. On the chrome topic, I don't mind it on the standard GTS and GTS Super as they both have quite a lot of other silvery detailing on them.
One of the reasons I opted for Super Sport (Racing Sixties red tie and yellow/gold wheels were a little too much for my taste) is that I wanted a little sportier model, black wheels, decals and all. The shiny S/S heat shield on the muffler was in my view a bit of an oversight from Marco Lambri's design team. At the same time they probably wanted to protect the current lineup where both Sei Giorni and the Racing Sixties come with it. Notte model too, but that's another story.

She's a beaut, mate!
Do tell little on that seat, I have been looking for some time for the one that curves/slopes at the back but still allows comfortable pillion ride. Cheers.

P.S. SIP and Scooterwest both sell heat shield M5 10mm washers and screws in black oxide.

The seat is a mono gel seat Piaggio Vespa part 605677M, but I had to shave the hump down so I could sit back in the middle of it comfortably. It migrated from my GTS250, and as the 300 has a wider helmet compartment the rubbers under the sides don't make contact with the under-seat bucket, but that doesn't seem to matter.

I am happy with the shiny bolts/washers on the exhaust. They add a bit of feature to it. One needs to notice the exhaust without it hitting you in the eye. Then it becomes part of the scooter rather than an add-on accessory.

Thanks, good to know, I noticed it was a little different from what I've seen so far but now I know why I have a neighbor who seems to be keen on selling his. As for the rubber bumpers, he mentioned he had to move them a little towards the outer edge to adjust for his 2016 GTS, so all the pre-work should be all done. I prefer this older spirts seat from Vespa than the new Sei Giorni. Cheers.
