Can somebody recommend to me a battery available on Amazon (USA) for my 2009 GTS 250?

I don't need anything fancy. I just don't want to end up ordering an incompatible battery. Crying or Very sad emoticon

Thank you for the help.

I am guessing you did not wish to google & find the right battery for your Vespa or search the forum. But you are in luck here is a good battery for your Vespa

I have had great luck with these people. The battery comes preloaded. My Nighthawk had one in it for four years before it crapped out.

Generally when it is shipped it is not preloaded.
When you buy a battery online you should make sure you have a battery tender /trickle charger to get it all filled and charged up.
A decent battery tender is this one https://www.amazon.com/Battery-Tender-021-0123-Junior-Charger/dp/B000CITK8S?th=1
You may want one with a higher amp than the 750mA.

Or BatteriesPlus. They can look it up, and you can get the core charge back on the spot for the old battery. Their battery come ready to go and they have a great warranty should something go wrong.

Whichever way you go, find one that is AGM construction. Absorbed Glass Matt will hold a charge better and longer and is also more resistant to impact shocks - so it won't get damaged as easily as traditional wet cell types.

Motobatt is a very good AGM.
