After visiting my Vespa dealer, I noticed that the new GTV 300 had matte black trim instead of gloss black. For my tastes, it looked a lot better. If you were considering changing to matte back trim, the floorboard and legshield trim is available for the 2023 GTV. According to SIP Scootershop, the trim is interchangeable with the 2023 GTS 300. As for now, there does not seem to be a matte black headlight ring or a matte black taillight ring available. I would imagine that Piaggio, Moto Nostra, or SIP will make this sooner or later. The good news is that SIP Scootershop sells the Piaggio floorboard trim for $30.18 x 2, and the Piaggio legshield trim for $48.83 x 2 ($158.20 - not including shipping). SIP Scootershop is the only place I could find these items. I could not find the matte black trim anywhere else, but I did find the matte grey trim (2023 Supertech) in the USA for $421.80 for all four pieces. I would imagine the matte black trim will be a similar price in the USA. It seems that the 2023 headlight ring and taillight ring are not interchangeble with the 2022 parts. If you can't wait for the 2023 matte black parts, it would be fairly easy to paint. Anyway, that's my two cents.

I just realized that if you had a 2023 Vespa GTS 300 Super Sport, it would require quite a few changes to go all matte black. You would have to change the fender crest, the mirrors, the foot pegs, and the brakes levers. Depending on your budget, you could upgrade these items while going matte black. If you had a GTS Super, you would need to change the horn cover inlay. Moto Nostra makes a 2023 matte black replacement (Falan Parts - 20.65 Euro + shipping).
You would need to change the exhaust shield. Falan parts makes there own replacement for 46.20 Euro. SIP makes a matte black CNC speedometer ring
(37.18 Euro - Falan Parts). Moto Nostra makes matte black foot pegs (81.82 Euro - Falan Parts). Anyway, you get the idea.

According to German forum the headlight ring is compatible between pre-facelift and MY23:

Not really. It's an Italian bike and none of your sources for parts are in Italyl. If I had a BMW and wanted a blackout mirror that was useless because the glass was black and I couldn't see anything, I wouldn't look for it in Italy, but Germany,where they make the bike.

I have no idea what you are saying . I suppose if if I want to buy a Vespa, I should go to Italy. I buy parts from Italy and the Netherlands.

So we shouldn't buy anything from Oklahoma then?

Have you bought parts from this place falanparts.com? They are based in the Netherlands.
