Hello. Always good to place a location in your profile. Some additional info about the scooter pic you posted would also be interesting.

Some of the world gets a 4 valve liquid cooled 125cc or 155cc version of the GTS.

It's slightly more powerful than the air cooled 3 valve Primavera / Sprint, but a bit more weight - so tends to balance out about the same performance.

I've never really understood the reason for their existence, apart from the prestige factor of owning the more expensive scoot when you're limited to the smaller capacities for local reasons.
With the larger frame are they still slower despite the extra power?

They're much better suited for 2 riders than the small frames, but in England at least - most ride 125's on a 1 day training course and can only carry a pillion with a full licence (by which point, they tend to get the bigger 300cc).

Storage is better on the larger GTS though, and the extra 1-2hp tends to even up with the extra weight - so very similar performance to the small frame. Just handling is a bit different.

Never been a better excuse to buy a 946.
