The New 150 i GET 4 Valve Watercooled GTS 150
Piaggio now introduce the Vespa GTS 150 to the family of “i-GET” (Italian Green Experience Technology).
Every technical detail, both internally and externally is new. All designed to reduce noise fuel consumption and emissions while propelling the bike along at speeds readily accepted in the urban environment.
This new family of long-stroke engines provides a quick response to the throttle thanks to the high torque available at low rpm. The compact design provides a low centre of gravity to improve manoeuvrability.
The 4-valve timing and the patented Start & Stop system complete a technical framework that is the new benchmark for the market.
Start & Stop Technology (GTS 150 only)
The RISS (Regulator Inverter Start & Stop System), patented by Piaggio as the Start & Stop System, eliminates the old style starter motor design and replaces it with a simple and highly efficient brushless system mounted directly fitted on the crankshaft. This allows the engine to turn off when sitting at stop and instaneously restart at the turn of the throttle.
- Engine starting: The starting process is familiar; turn the key, apply a brake and press the start button, but the difference is that the engine starts silently, without the traditional starter motor noise.
- Activation / Deactivation of the RISS: The system is activated by selecting “AUTO” on the handlebar switch. When activated the system turns off the engine when the scooter has been stationary for between 3 and 7 seconds.
This results in the combined benefits of reduced noise, fuel consumption and pollutant emissions. The RISS is equipped with a control system which overrides it automatically if the battery is low.
The advantages are:
1. Silent ignition
2. Increased reliability
3. Lower engine fuel consumption
Front LED position lights
The on board technological level of Vespa GTS increases also in the lighting system, thanks to the LED technology. Front positioning lights are made by LED lights, a modern and elegant solution. As for the exclusive and elegant Vespa GTS, the lights are perfectly integrated into the turning indicator, in this way the front shield remains clean and stylish.
ABS. Antilock Braking System (GTS 150 & 300)
GTS 150 and 300 Provide Dual Channel ABS as a standard feature. The ABS operates on both front and rear wheels, guaranteeing optimal vehicle control in all atmospheric conditions, a key consideration for people riding in city streets on a daily basis.
The system consists of a control unit and sensors that monitor and regulate braking power If the rider brakes too sharply, they risk wheel lock.
The ABS automatically intervenes to reduce the braking pressure and stop the wheels from locking. The control unit performs these adjustments up to 10 times per second
ASR - Anti Slip Regulation (GTS 300 only)
ASR system uses the ABS electronics and sensors to compare the speed of rotation of the two wheels. When the sensors detect excessive speed of the rear wheel than the front, the control unit intervenes cutting the engine toque by spark advance reduction and, if necessary, also on the injection system to prevent slippage and prevent loss of vehicle control.
Quasar engine (GTS 300)
Quasar 300 Engine: Now Even More Environmentally Friendly
The 300 Quaser is the benchmark for the compact performance CVT engines. The 300cc is a single cylinder engine, 4 stroke, 4 valve, electronic injection, liquid cooled, and can deliver maximum power of 15,6 kW at 7,750 rpm and maximum torque of 22 Nm at just 5,000 rpm, ensuring quick throttle response and extremely brilliant performance in general. With a high-cylinder engine, GTS Super 300 gives the rider a great performance experience which other scooters do not have. Meets strict enviromental e4 emission requirments.
Further safety enhancements include the Tilt Sensor. In the event of the bike falling the Start Stop system is automatically disabled and the engine turns off.
Fully Electronic Immobilizer
Standard anti-theft immobilizer integrated in the ignition key. The immobilizer is activated automatically by removing the ignition key, and locks the engine control unit functionality, making the scooter unusable; the operation of the system is indicated by a special flashing indicator on the dashboard.
Bike finder & Opening the saddle
- Remote unlocking of the saddle (via remote control)
- Quick Vehicle Recognition System through starting of the indicators pics
The left side of front glove box compartment includes the lever for mechanical opening of the saddle and a USB port for easy charging of smartphones and other electronic devices.
