Hi I am in need of a front fork assy for a 2015 gts300 super. Is there a year range that will fit this bike? From what little that I have found, it seems like 2016 to 2018 125-300 are the same? Can anyone confirm what other model forks that would work?
Thx

It's not a fork, therefore it is not a fork assembly. It is a steering column with an attached shock. Are you changing the whole steeering column, or just the shock?
that just semantics posturing. in common parlance everybody in the scooter community calls it a fork. you knew what they were talking about.

'15~'17 (or perhaps late '14 to early '18) some bikes had ESS so the fork will be different with the "bent" suspension arm.

to my knowledge, structurally, the frame remained unchanged so you could always snap in just about any fork from the earlier lines.

but SIP lists just a bare tube if yours is bent and you need to replace it.

O RLY?

google search terms: 2015 vespa front fork

2nd hit gives me this:

External inline image provided by member with no explanatory text

https://www.scooterwest.com/vespa-gts-300ie-abs-ess-front-fork-2015-2017.

so basically, an industry leader in parts supply for modern vespas in the US calls it a fork.

call it a rotatornator dowangus for all I care, but don't front like somebody isn't going to be able to find what they need using a commonly known and used sobriquet.
