Woah there we go. Not much of a Change from the front. All I see is the mirrors, maybe a different fender crest, and the primavera sport style wheel.

What other changes do people see?

Quite a few but mainly cosmetic. New angular shorty mirrors, wheels, full-body fender crest, flatter and streamlined horn cover, new handle bar and steering section, smaller end bar weights, chrome edging/trim on legshield now looks same as on Prims and Sprints. I'd say few more like side vents on glove box, new low profile tail light, lowered license plate holder and many more. Vietnamese forum guys are saying the engine stays 150 i-get or 300 HPE, some called it HPE+ but it's unconfirmed yet.

Rumor on German forum is new suspension in collab with a 3rd party performance suspension maker, this is certainly a welcome addition as the low end Chinese one which comes stock standard leaves much to imagination.

Couple of fresh photos. Mainly cosmetic changes it appears. These are Super Sport 300 HPE and likely a new Racing Sixties ? (red one on the right) models.

Or it could be a new GTS Super and a Super Sport. We'll know in the next few days I believe.

Looks like we will retain the 300 as the pic of the black one reveals on the glove box, but who knows if these are early production runs or just shop toys... they sure are sharp looking though, the black on the red is really nice! I wonder if those are 13" wheels. The key FOB found on the seat.. the turn signals are very silver, hope they illuminate nicer than they look off. overall they look nice!

It looks like it, the dash has a larger LCD display area under the analog speedo.. probably buttons/switches to access menu selection etc..

As a fan of the Sprint, I was hoping they'd put a square headlight on the GTS too, at least on one of the trim levels!

Yup, for us who bought the 2019 model no real need for an upgeade.

I also prefer the look of my tail light and the fact the license plate sits higher on mine. On the new modell it's abour 3 inches lower, below that weird looking 'nipple' sticking out above it. No wheelies anymore, guys...we are likely to end up with a licence plate on the tarmac if we try that

IMHO, the shiny chrome around the controls and on the leg shield trim (a la the sprint) cheapens the look, sigh. Change is hard to accept, ha!

The lower part of the new speedo assembly seems to be an LED segment display. I am curious what the areas below the ASR are for. There seem to be two distinct spaces and these two hair-lines in the display. I wonder what goes there.

looks like new brakes front and rear including the mounting of the front. And what is that black line going diag upwards from the bottom of the spring to behind the fork cover? maybe just a support for the cover?

BTW I hate the new fork cover as I find my fork cover gets very very dirty, ie it is protecting my front shock from a hell of a lot of crap

Waaaaitaminute…I like those stripes on the fender, particularly if they're reflective (which they don't appear to be, especially in the close-up photo). I put a reflective stripe between the footwell on Thelonica about two weeks ago, partly to "be (better-) seen", partly for appearance's sake. (Fat lot of good it did for me yesterday…)

Look on the bright side: they don't want to make us too envious of "next year's model", if we (I) just bought this year's.

some differences to the transmission housing vs my 2019 supertech Asia/Pacific E3. Obviously the highlighted differences don't matter but you have to wonder why? Are the internals different?

Makes me wonder about a 2022 E5 ... anyone got a good photo of that?

PS I still havent installed the Frandos that are sitting here looking at me with a "come on ya lazy bastard" expression

Go on. Fit them. Having much better brakes will change your riding style.

Only problem is bleeding them with all that ABS stuff. You may have to go to a Vespa workshop.

I agree. That taillight is a bit too much. I prefer the earlier GTS300 taillight without the chrome surround. It followed the body lines nicely.
