Three months ago I wandered into a Vespa dealer to kill some time. Two weeks ago I took delivery of a GTV 250ie and haven't looked back except to upgrade a few components. I've never owned a motorcycle before. The handling is superb and very forgivable; it has tons of power and is extremely comfortable. I was able to acquire a sport seat in the same matching leather. This allowed me to sit back three inches and create a more comfortable riding position. I kept the two piece saddle, should I ever wish to return the bike to its more traditional style. It is a real show stopper. Thanks Vespa.


Upgrades:
Top case, full chrome kit, Continental tires, Bitubo shocks, Brembo brakes, Kevlar belt, upgraded ctv drive, slightly larger wind screen in a smoked glass against a grey body, leather wrapped hand grips to match the saddle and backrest and a one-piece leather saddle and finally a brighter headlight kit.
