The GTS 250 scooter was first introduced in 2006 in Europe. It was the first time fuel injection had ever been included in a Vespa scooter coupled with a larger engine and better handling, and the Vespa GTS 250 was one of the best scooters made by Vespa to date. The GTS 250ie was restyled from the Vespa GT200. Along with changes in the engine, the other changes were the digital gauges, a tachometer, chrome fender-crest, chrome horn grille, restyled rear fairings/taillight, chrome foldable rack, redesigned center stand, unpainted front suspension cover, and restyled seat. The fuel gauge, temperature gauge, and clock complete the instrumentation. The anti-theft ignition is very effectual and comes standard.
