Vespa GTS250ie 2009 Scooter Review

I like my 2009 Vespa 250GTS so much I gave it to my wife and bought another one for me... exactly the same model and year. Now we scoot around together. Great fun. Routine maintenance is costly, but 70 mpg makes up for some of the costs.

Vespa experience NEW
by: GOR in WI

After having a Honda Elite 150 for 20+ years, last year I bought a 2009 Vespa GTS250ie. My wife and I had not ridden the Hondas (she had a Honda Elite 125) for a few years and they were in need of work, so we decided to get new ones (she got a 2009 Aprilia 200). Both are 2009s but new and at a discount.

I added a windshield and Top Box to the Vespa and then added extra lighting to the Top Box from Admorelighting for better visibility by other road users. The added lights are great as they work for braking and turn signals. I also put them on my wife's GIVI Top Box.

The Vespa has performed flawlessly and has plenty of speed for freeway riding, handles well and at about 350 lbs. has great stability. Just turned 4k miles on it and, weather permitting, plan to use it a lot this summer.

I recently purchased my 2009 Vespa GTS250ie scooter and absolutely love it. It's a blast to ride, the seat is comfortable, the ride is pretty smooth, acceleration is incredible and it looks great! I would encourage anyone to look at a Vespa for a quality scooter. I couldn't be more happy with my Vespa!!!

Battery Tender Junior in package

A battery tender like the Battery Tender Jr. can make all the difference in whether your scooter will start right up each spring, after being stored for months.

Just about every scooter owner needs to have a battery tender, sometimes called a trickle charger. Unless you are lucky enough to live in a climate where you can ride all year long, chances are your scooter will be put on ice, figuratively-speaking, for at least a couple months every winter.

One of the key steps in winterizing a scooter is to protect your battery from draining during its "rest" period. This can – and will – happen if you leave your battery sitting untended in your cold scooter over the winter, even if it's in a garage or shed.

Even though most of their posts did not go public, they still cluttered up my website host's server space, jeopardizing my account. I appreciate everyone's contributions over the past few years and I apologize for having to do this.

Wondering why your scooter question never got posted?

Chances are, there is a good reason. Did you...
