I bought a 2009 GTS in 2010 used from a dealer who went out of business. He told me he thought it was 300cc. He had taken it in on a trade and the side panels had both been scratched bad enough to need repainting. He ordered decals and 250s came thru. I read somewhere too that the GTS came in 300 for the European market. How can I tell if this Vespa is a 250 or 300? Would the serial number reveal it?

Thanks.

Yep, serial number will, but the cc should also be on the V5 registration document.

You can also do a quick check online of the DVLA record for the vehicle, using the registration plate. Its free and you don't need to be the owner - see below....

That should do it...
