Whichever one bolts directly to the chassis rather than relying on straps for mounting.

I don't have experience with front racks specifically for the GTS, but the OEM Vespa front rack for the LX is far superior to the aftermarket versions. The aftermarket versions typically mount with straps to the edges of the legshield, where the Vespa rack mounts very rigidly with two capscrews that secure top of the rack directly to the chassis, and the bottom with a long screw through the horn grille to a bracket on the chassis. The rigidity this achieves keeps the rack from moving when subjected to road shocks and prevents damage to the paint under the rubber cup feet. With the strap mounting, the rack is much more susceptible to movement and abrasion of the finish under the feet.

I am not a fan of my cuppini front rack. It did not come with a locking clamp. The Vespa aluminum clamp and the Vespa plastic clamp doesn't fit. I tried a caribeener and it doesn't fit either. Bungees work but I hate the idea of ruining the look with bungees. The spring is so strong that it will squish my front roll bag. Took the rack off and will purchase the Vespa rack next. I hope you find one that works well for you and that you like.
