The results are in!
More than 47 000 readers of the monthly German motorcycle magazine Motorrad, one of the industry’s most renowned publications, have voted for Motorcycle of the Year 2019.
Once again, Vespa has taken the top spot in the ‘scooter’ category.
All About Italy writes that the Vespa GTS has been crowned best scooter in the world due to “its elegant and sinuous shapes, and its unique body entirely made of steel” – elements that make it the most coveted scooter in Germany.
Vespa has already obtained this important award several times, so many that the website of the magazine commented: “No matter how much power or technique the other scooters implement, in the end, there’s always this Italian girl on top of the podium.”
Another reason for Vespa to celebrate one of the happiest moments in its history: in the last ten years, over 1.6 million new Vespas have been produced and sold worldwide and in 2018, sales grew by 16% compared to the record numbers obtained in 2017 and exceeding the extraordinary figure of 210 thousand pieces.
The Vespa GTS carries on the legacy of the legendary “Vespone“ – Vespas with larger bodies, that work well in the city as well as over longer distances.
In other words, the GTS is the perfect replacement for that fuel-guzzling car that’s been eating into your bank account since the petrol price hike.
Moreover, in 2019 the entire Vespa GTS family improves performance, comfort, and style thanks to the new 23 hp engine, more advanced and efficient in terms of reducing emissions and consumption.
The TFT display shows all notifications related to incoming calls and messages allowing to manage phone calls using the practical joystick on the left control pad as well as to use the smartphone’s voice commands to make calls or play music, activating a playlist.
The only thing with the power to unseat the GTS from the top spot in the future is Vespa’s latest addition to the family, the Vespa Elettrica.
The electric scooter is eco-friendly, silent, and packs quite a punch.
