The GTR was a European market scooter, and was not sold in the US originally. It was a 125cc version of the Vespa Sprint, and built to satisfy customers who did not have the license for a larger machine, or did not want to pay insurance for above 125cc scooters. We’re not sure when this one was imported into the US, but by the time we acquired it, a previous owner had removed the original motor and installed a motor from a P200. This is a big improvement, to say the least. The scooter is fast and good looking! It is the ideal balance between vintage style and more modern speed.
