I have been a Vespa fanatic for about 10 years, but I have owned other motorbikes to commute back and forth from work on the highway, and the vespas were more like a hobby. I continue to own a vintage Vespa to tinker with, but I am having a blast with my new Granturismo that has replaced my sport bike. I can cruise right along with the big boys on the interstate. It has got plenty of acceleration, and I cruise along at 75 mph without straining the engine, I think the top speed must be near 85 mph. I'm getting about 70/75 miles per gallon, I wish the tank were larger, it's only 2.5 gallons, but it has a nice gas gauge, plus a light on the dash to warn when fuel is low. I go about 125/150 miles between fill-ups. I do enjoy the large compartment under the seat to haul things and it is the most comfortable scooter I have ever had (I've had 6 other scooters). I imagine that anyone shorter than I am would not feel as comfortable at stop lights. It is also the safest scooter: The brakes are awesome and the light is really bright. It is all-around everything that I would have dreamed it to be, but it comes at a rather high price.

I have had this scooter for a little over a month now. I ride it to work everyday, and ride all over on weekends. My comute is only 3 or 4 miles one way to work, but many mornings, or afternoons I will take a much longer route just to enjoy the ride. This is a very easy bike to ride. I like not having to change gears, or worry about clutching, or foot brakes. The GT200 has plenty of power to stay up with traffic and will run 55-65 mph very easily. I really have to watch my speed in town because it is so smooth, that you will be over the limits without knowing it. I have also ridden this bike for a few trips of 100 miles. Very good on the back roads, and handles them quite easy. Great scoot overall.
