2009 Red Vespa GTS 250
By Ted Finnell(Owner), Feb. 27, 2009
I really don't know how you could build a better scooter than this. It has everything: styling, performance, comfort - I am thoroughly pleased. Bought it on Dec. 23rd and have about 1000 miles on it now. Have ridden a 140 mile tour accompanied by a 2009 HD Ultra Glide and had no trouble keeping up. ... Read Full Review

By Robert Harkness(Owner), Jan. 19, 2010
I road a 82 GW Asp. for 23yrs. This GTV250ie is top shelf. I bought it in Aug 09 & just LOVE it. I put a larger wind screen on it & a side stand. It seems to me (now) it was worth every penny I spent for this Scooter. What a DREAM to ride. TX.... Read Full Review
