See what Piaggio Americas Stefano Sterpone had this to say about the new Vespa model :
The new Vespa GTS represents the most advanced,
technological and high performance evolution of a brand which symbolises
mobility. In every era Vespa has always offered the best of technology
at the service of riding pleasure.
The GTS, thanks to its size and 278 cc engine, provides
power that until a few years ago was unthinkable for the "Vespone". On
one side there is the urban and city vocation and on the other the
touring and travel vocation: the new GTS comes on the market today as
one of the most technologically advanced vehicles in the world thanks to
its extraordinary riding electronics systems.

GTS has the ASR traction control system, a Piaggio Group exclusive,

From 2004 to the present, more than 1.3 million Vespa's
have been sold worldwide and during this decade annual production has
steadily increased to almost 190,000.
