Hey everyone! I don't know if this is normal with all GTV's but my uncle has one and the horn is LOUD. Sounds like a car horn compared to the Road Runner horn in my GTS. Was wondering if anyone knows how to do the upgrade or if there is anything similar available that's plug and play? I don't want to go crazy on my Vespa but I would love to have that horn especially when we go to NYC. Thanks!

I haven't upgraded my horn, so I don't have any info on that. Though I know a thing or two about riding in the Big Apple.

New York drivers get into your space or way too close because they want to, a loud horn rarely is going to change their mind in a hurry. Fuhgettaboutit!

Here horns are less used for warning, more just because we can, as a greeting or parting sound, to signal disapproval or excitement and because why not use it, simply because it's there.

Pull the horn cover off your uncle's scooter and take a look. It has probably been swapped for something louder. Your uncle's scooter came from the factory with the same anemic horn as yours. It can be replaced with something louder.
I like this one from Fiamm. It's as loud as a train, doens't require a relay and is cheaper than a hamburger.
