SAFETY FEATURES

The Vespa GTS chassis, in line with all Vespas from 1946 until now, is strictly steel for unrivalled robustness as well as truly unique levels of safety and dynamism. The result is a particularly brilliant ride both in city traffic as well as on country roads: a blend of thrilling handling and reassuring stability, also thanks to the generously sized tyres on 12 inch wheels. The double-disc braking system ensures prompt deceleration, even in sports use, with a modularity reserve able to put even a beginner’s mind at rest. 

Piaggio was the first worldwide company to introduce advanced active safety systems such as ABS & ASR on a scooter, now available on the GTS range. ABS. Each wheel is equipped with a detection system (a sensor and a phonic wheel) that instantly measure speed and deceleration. The sensors communicate with a hydraulic control unit with two channels that activates the ABS system if one of the wheels decelerates quickly relative to the vehicle, avoiding locking and ensuring stability and efficient braking. 

ASR (Anti Slip Regulation). It uses the ABS electronics and sensors to compare the wheel speed rotation of the two wheels. When the sensors detect the rear wheel speed exceeds that of 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 . These solutions put Vespa on the top level regarding safety and technology.
