Yes yes. Chain final drive.
And get ride of that silly gap between the seat and handlebars so my knees don't knock together anymore. You could put a petrol take there!

I've been making a bit of noise about the occasional weakness of the GTS300 HPE's belt drive (personally experienced), partially serious, equal part silliness, but to be honest, if I was thinking about buying a 2024 GTS, nothing about the Vespa 300, as it is, is a deal-killer, and I would have little hesitation in getting one, potentially short belt life or not.

Dragon red, of course.

Some form of Apple CarPlay / Android Auto would be amazing. The ability to use full google maps when riding.

Would love factory tyre pressure sensors, with an on screen display.

But also, one of the most iconic elements of the classic Vespas is the ability to have a spare wheel stored - either under the side cover or behind the leg shield. This would mean a swap to identical wheels / tyres front and rear, but I think this would be an extremely unique feature in the scooter market to bring this back.

I'm not in the market for buiyng a Vespa right now.
May be one day...if I'll turn things around, development that would put me off:

-taller seat height. I'm a shorty, so 50's, 60's tiny Vespas were just the right size for me.

-more weight. I like them light.

That's about it if the rest remains

I'm not a fan of the belt either, but that's not a deal breaker. Sort of belongs to the package.

There were times, not really that long ago, when a shaft drive was an asset in big bikes....but nowadays the chain drives are just so damn durable that the shaft is starting to look just an expensive solution to a trivial problem. I mostly happily neglect chain maintenance in my bike and it just runs...the modern chains don't even need frequent adjustment like they used to.

A bigger fuel tank and more power would be nice but that means a heavier and more expensive Scooter which isn't so nice.

Ride by wire allows for a TFT screen, navigation and cruise control, for me that's what I'd like to see next, although that would also make it more expensive.

A galvanized frame (or some kind of decent rust protection) would be an asset here in the rainy UK, there are so many GTS's here with the floor totally rotted out.

German avant garde styling at its dystopian futuristic best, though one can certainly make the argument that BMW isn't hopelessly stuck in the past like some manufacturers (I'm looking at you, Harley-Davidson).

This is the one that I had a test ride on last year. They go pretty good, and are interesting to ride when one is so used to ICE machines, but the price! WOWEEE!!

Honestly, if they had a decent electric option that had 150 miles range and would hit 60mph without me having to sell organs to afford it, I'd be all in.

I like the Elettrica, but for the price and what it offers it just isn't an option. If it were limited to 65mph instead of 45 it would be a much better bike.

That CE-04 is a beast. I talked to a local guy who rides one. Neat stuff.

Looking a the responses, large fuel tank, more hp/TQ, bigger tires, and longer belt life seem to be common.

I'm new to the Vespa world, but long time long distance motorcycle rider. IMHO I think my GTS300 close to perfect for what I use it for. Sure there are times I wanted to go a bit further before refueling, and have a bit more power to get away from highway traffic, but not game changers. Have not replaced a belt so cant comment on that, but I put that in the reliability bucket. What I don't want to see is the Vespa grow into a small motorcycle...

It certainly could be 'improved to death' if many of the 'upgrades' suggested were to happen, very much including my own.

In my case, in thinking an engine size and hp increase would somehow make it a more enjoyable machine, was brought by a guy who feels that his Triumph Rocket 3R would be improved with another 35 hp and fifty pounds of torque over it's original 165 and 163.

Trixie and I refer to this train of thought as 'The Winnebago Syndrome', where one starts out in a pup tent, then advances to a camper van, ultimately ending up in a forty foot motorhome that costs as much as a two-bedroom house.

I started out on an 8 hp Honda S90, and seventy machines later, I'm on a 2500cc, 700 pound Triumph. Am I having more fun and 'better' adventures on the Triumph than I did with that humble little Honda?

I don't think so.

znomit,

You are right, the Vespa 946 is a retro move in direction I indicated in my earlier post. I also contemplated buying one. I still think a complete copy of the the early model with new technology would be super. But, of course, the 946 came with a hefty price tag. I think a dead ringer copy of the original priced like the current 150 would sell well.

I've never been particularly attracted to powerful cars, and only asked that they be adequate for our purposes, which are of a practical nature.

Curious, am I the only member here who has owned a Renault Dauphine?

Our Miata is 155 hp, and definitely not a 'fast' car, but damn, that thing is a hoot to run around the Black Hills with. Completely satisfied with it's performance.

Most of the motorcycles I've owned since about 2015 (8-10 bikes ?) have ranged in hp from 20 to 55 hp, and the performance of all but one was entirely acceptable to me..that one being the 2023 Royal Enfield 350, which along with being probably THE most attractive retro-styled motorcycle, IMO, was also the most depressingly underpowered machine I've ever experienced. As a result, it regretfully left our garage with only about 300 miles showing on it's odometer.

I've learned a long, long, time ago that the 'fun factor' of a motorbike is not solely dependent on it's hp numbers.

I've learned a lot. Because I'm old now and stuff. And I realized that it's more fun to drive a slow car fast than a fast car slow. Same for bikes.

Speed limits, anywhere I'm ever going to drive, top out at 75mph. Period. Why on God's green earth would I want a car or bike that does 200? Or 170? Or even 120, realistically? I have never in my decades of driving ever HAD to drive any faster than 80. And even that is illegal. Anything more is just looking for trouble.

I don't think I ever broke 80 with the Volvo. Aerodynamically, either of my VW Buses were like driving a Frigidaire. You were lucky to hit 70. My FIAT tops out at 90, but it will likely never see it.

I have more fun driving the FIAT than I did driving the 928. And my Aprilia is a blast, because I'm usually pushing it to its mechanical limits, but it's still not enough to get me a ticket.

Americans, largely, are obsessed with HP and torque, when most cars on the road are simply overkill. And then we also like to complain about gas prices.

adios all the nanny controls
I prefer the older scooters with no electronic add-ons, like Rocket, my 2006 Vespa GT with over 100,000 miles on it.

I took a 50 mile ride at lunch today on that old scooter and I enjoyed it greatly.

I wasn't always checking the computerized dash for mpg or air temperature or voltage or any of the other functions they monitor.

Not having ABS or traction control or any of the other rider intrusions makes for a pure riding experience that enjoy so much.

I wish we could still buy a new scooter that was just a simple scooter.

I know that has been taken away from us, so I will continue to enjoy my old, pre-intervention scooters.

On another note, the suggestion that the new Vespa GTS needs a larger fuel tank is seconded here. On my 2023 GTS, I am seeing the low fuel light start flashing at less than 100 miles on some rides. On the Cannonball, I had to refuel four times one day.

When the time comes, I'll replace my 2007 GTS with something from 2023 or later. After watching Robot's video detailing the changes for 23, I have no need to think about the interim year models. I'll skip the Supertech trims though, not sure I would get much out of the extra options. UNLESS...I find another pre-2010 GTS with low miles & in really good shape hiding somewhere.

I would love to see better rust proofing, larger wheels (13" or 14" - no bigger), and 30 hp. Having a larger fuel tank would be nice, but after 2-2.5 hours of riding, I'm probably ready to stretch my legs and take a piss. It's easy enough to carry extra fuel if you want/need to. I would also like to see a factory accessory backrest for the rider that's easy to install and remove. Factory TPMS would be another lovely item to have.

Larger wheels and at least 30 HP.
I want to comfortably cruise at 75, and be able to pass at 85 or climb a long, steep grade without slowing. I know the 300 CAN do it, but it's maxed out.

Ride by wire allows for a TFT screen, navigation and cruise control, for me that's what I'd like to see next, although that would also make it more expensive.
don't need ride by wire for tft and nav. supertech already has these and doesn't have ride by wire.

The ability to use full google maps when riding.

Would love factory tyre pressure sensors, with an on screen display.
I have tyre pressure sensore on my supertech and show their values on the tft (using my own app to achieve this 😉)

and for google maps, full map display would be cute but yet again using my own app I am able to show google maps nav on my supertech (instead of the standard mapping in piaggios app) and that'll do well enough for me
