Ohlins Suspension for Vespa GTS300/GTV300 901 & 902
Consisting of twin rear shocks and a single front unit, the new Öhlins suspension upgrade for the Vespa GTS 300 is now available across the Asian market. In countries like Thailand, the Philippines, and Vietnam, Vespas have gained massive affinity thanks to their charm and fashionable aesthetic. Oftentimes seen as status symbols, as opposed to utilitarian machines, the Vespa-centric culture in these countries runs pretty deep.
Apart from the improved performance offered by the Öhlins upgrade, the premium construction and quality fit and finish of the suspension components elevates the overall aesthetic of the scooter. Featuring Öhlins' iconic yellow springs and gold piggyback reservoirs, the upgrade gives the Vespa GTS 300 a subtle aesthetic boost, accentuating the scooter's sporty nature. Both fornt and rear suspension upgrades feature adjustable preload. Dampening is non-adjustable, however features a more sophisticated dampening control system as opposed to the stock units.
Öhlins Asia CEO, Paul David Hugo, said: “We’ve always been a Vespa fan and admire how the brand occupies a premium segment within the scooter market. Öhlins is a high-performance company, but we often redefine the meaning of ‘performance’. For example, applying our high-end technology to a scooter enhances the supremely-important ‘feel’ factor, thereby improving the rider’s overall road experience, while raising his or her level of confidence.”
All Öhlins suspension components come complete with a two-year warranty, in line with the Swedish company’s engineering prowess. The Vespa GTS 300 Öhlins suspension upgrade is now available throughout the Öhlins network in Asia.
