I find this a funny discussion…the disdain for them.

Maybe because it's all I've known my entire life it feels like here in Canada.

I'm more bummed my Supertech is delayed till spring. Even though there's no chance in heck I could drive the thing right now with the amount of snow I have. I guess I really just wanted to sit on it in the garage and pretend I was writing lol.

Really should have black break levers, sigh. Thanks for the front view of the white. They don't have any on the website. I swear every photo I see with the orange in it, strip or whole scooter the color is different.

Black or white cascades are no problem (from the GTS or GTS Super), as far as I know, but there are currently the cascade inserts not yet in black).

With the other colors of the SuperSport it might be difficult in vehicle color, but there remains at least black.

The switch panel will also be available soon in the accessories, wait and see in which colors. I'm afraid though that all colors except carbon(-imitate) and maybe black will probably have to be painted.

Note: the brake levers of the pre-facelift do NOT fit the 2023 facelift!

Yes the reflectors are ugly to many people. The first mod I made on my new to me gts250ie was to remove the reflectors. I plan on adding some custom stripping with reflective tape to make me and scoot more likely to be seen by 4 and more wheel drivers. I have had experiences with those who have claimed to have not seen me and my rides. Being aware of drivers not recognizing vehicles smaller then a mountain has so far prevented unwanted contacts.

Personally I honestly don't notice the reflectors until pointed out.

The reflectors are very small anyway. Much better to have a visible scooter - yellow, orange, white, blue, anything but black. A gloss black GTS looks beautiful, but it is a crazy colour choice if you plan to do any night riding.

If a driver doesn't see you, it's because he/she didn't look. I don't think the reflectors make any difference. Ride defensively and treat everyone as stupid.

I use black reflective white tape on my black top cases. During the day you have to look closely to even see it there but at night it lights up really well, better than the black/gold older version. On a gray Burgman we had I used the same tape as accent pin striping which really helped visibility much more than the small reflectors. If a driver didn't see that scoot at night it was because they weren't looking where they were going.

what's the best mount for iPhone to use the gps that is compatible for the 2023 vespa gts? I was thinking a ram ball mount for the side mirrors because I saw in a video it can use many different angles but I heard they changed the mirror design so this mount is no longer compatible. can anyone help me out? much appreciated thanks.

I recommend the mounts from SP Connect.

Mount on the mirror + cell phone specific case or universal case, the latter is water resistant.

https://sp-connect.com/collections/universal/products/universal?variant=42332610363592

The Mirror-Mount is available in two versions:

https://sp-connect.com/collections/motorbike/products/mirror-mount

and
https://sp-connect.com/collections/motorbike/products/mirror-mount-pro

The standard mirror-mount is perfectly adequate

Note: there are depending on the selected components also sets (including mirror-mount and phone case)


ATTENTION: with smartphones, vibrations can damage the camera (Apple warns against this!), so always order the anti-vibration module as well!

Quadlock with anti vibration dampener. Personally I prefer the mirror stem mount but a ram ball on the mirror works fine. My 2023 FTS with Garmin XT and Quadlocjk mounts. I prefer to put my phone on the windchills support to minimize wind on it but I coul easily have put it on the ram ball I use with the Garmin.

I added an extra USB port as I do long trips so have the powered Quadlock mount and sometimes also plug in a camera.

I heard putting it on the windshield stem causes too much vibration for it to be useable that's why I asked about one for the side mirrors. but thanks for the info

You can put it wherever you like including on a ram mount. While I prefer the windshield mount the Quadlock with vibration dampener is on my a ram mount on my husbands Sports City.

Hello Guys , after 4 months waiting list my GTS 125 2023 will be ready for purchase next week from the dealer . İt's a Beige color GTS 125 2023 model brand new. My previous scooter was a Yamaha Nmax 125 2020 model matt gray with 12hp Dualcore water cooled engine , Abs and 13 inch Dunlop tyres and I made 4400km all on weekend trips to west coast villages of Mediterranean coast of Turkey . The handling and engine power was so satisfactory but it was not comfy on the village roads .I purchased Vespa to be a more comfortable option but still not sure if the sitting position and engine power as well as torque on the engine will be satisfactory after Nmax . That's why I still didn't sell Nmax . The only bad thing about Nmax was unfortunately having solid rock suspension. İt's a complete stile change i know and completely different scooter and hope will i like that.

Welcome to MV. Great looking scooter. Note: I believe the rear shocks are adjustable. On my 250gts, I found the lightest setting gave me the most comfortable ride (one up 160 lbs.)

Walked into the Vespa dealer in Bari today and saw the 2023 Touring edition.

It's grey with lime stripes (GRIGIO ENTUSIASTA MATT). Has a front luggage rack, and a short windshield (similar to prior Touring editions).

The badge on the glovebox reads T300.

Didn't think to check to see if the dash is analog or digital. Also didn't check if there was a rear luggage rack. I feel like I would have noticed if there was, but it's also a strange omission for a Touring. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

There is no official 2023 Touring!

GRIGIO ENTUSIASTA MATT is only available at a SuperTech (with digital dashboard), maybe equipped with accessories that it looks like a Touring…

With a rear luggage rack (there was no front luggage rack on the pre-facelift generation!), a windshield and a T300 badge, you can make a "Touring" out of any color....

The special thing about a Touring was the exclusive color, which was not available on any other model. Who wanted the color had to buy Touring, who wanted both accessories (rear rack + windshield) came with the Touring cheaper.

In the US, the Touring was the best value. You got like $500 worth of bling for $200, plus the green paint job.

think it might have been a supertech with optional extras installed - not a touring.
