I purchased this scooter second hand with only 400 miles on it and have since ridden it about 1600 additional miles. The bike is very powerful and extremely easy to ride in an urban setting due to its automatic transmission, low center of gravity and light weight when compared to a motorcycle. I use it primarily to run errands and go grocery shopping. It is amazing how many bags of groceries you can load onto this machine! You can put them under the seat, you can hang a bunch of them from the hook behind the front apron, you can fill up the aftermarket trunk bag on the rear rack and you can bungee cord more on top of the passenger's seat. If that isn't enough cargo capacity you can always add the front rack and scooter panniers for truly mini-van-like hauling capabilities. Unlike a minivan however, you can park this bike right next to the front door of the grocery store rather than cruising the parking lot for 10 minutes trying to get a decent space. The scooter regularly gets 65 mpg riding in the city and will do 80 mph if you are so inclined. The bike feels rock solid due to larger than normal wheels and a decent suspension - not at all like the Chinese, Tupperware knockoffs - it feels quite substantial. I highly recommend it for urban duty.

I bought a new GTS and since then, I sold my Suzuki. The GTS is awesome. I commute 30 miles one way on a highway doing 80mph or so all the way with a little bit of throttle left. 70mpg average. It handles two-up duty well also and the seat is tremendously comfortable for rider and passenger. Maintenance is easy and cheap, so is insurance. I don't think I can ever regret this purchase. My friends are constantly impressed by what the GTS can do.

When I sold my Harley, I thought I was out of motorcycles. When I bought the new Vespa GTS250 I realized I just changed brands. The 250 is a superscooter. I rode a ET4 for 5 years. It was really great but always seemed a little small for Phoenix combat riding. Too big for the bike lane and too small for the Indy 500 demo derby called Phoenix surface streets. The 250 has changed all that. This big bad boy wants to run. It knows no fear. I've only put 400 miles on it but I already know this is it for me. I've had a Honda, a Beemer, 5 Harleys and 2 Vespas. I've been passionate about all of them when I owned them. The 250GTS is my favorite. Oh yeah...it's black. Whoa!

I just picked up my new GTS, red because it's faster and because my WIFE told me to get black! After 14 motorcyles I thought it was time try a scooter. I originally wanted a PX 150 until I test rode it and I could not wait to give it back. It shook like a paint mixer and was flat out doing 50mph but I guess thats character? The GTS is more my speed. Much faster[about 85mph] and feels very well put togther and around town who wants to shift? The GTS is a little expensive compared to some of the cheap scoots out there. It's fuel injected, has good under seat storage, although my full face helmet won't fit and it gets fairly hot (no ice cream). It has a speedo, tach, clock, water, and air temperature gauge, a small glove box and rear rack. I just wish it had a side stand. I'll give it another reveiw in a couple hundred miles.
