First mod I did when I picked up my 2023 GTS 300 SS was to swap out the front Piaggio badge to an all black emblem. Looks fantastic.

Can't say the same about the faux carbon fiber bowtie/horn cover though.

there's also a LOT of different ones available at v-emblem (dot) de.

shipping took about a week to get to me on the east coast from germany. they do the backer plate with thick sticker option, so they aren't enamel but it's an aesthetic thing and i'm likely to change things out as the mood strikes.

True. But you also get what you pay for ordering from there.

although my success rate with aliexpress is not 100% the amount I've saved makes me sooooo far ahead that it's a good gamble for stuff like a badge.

and for that matter, last week I took something I bought locally back to a shop and this week I have something else I bought locally to take back to a different shop.

The 2 weeks plus it takes to get anything from ali doesnt work for the majority of the world. You being so close to their center of operations yields different results.

Ain't that the truth!!! $US100 for $US50 of bits, or the same in Euros for similarly small packages from Europe.
