Vespa GTS 300

The Vespa GTS 300 Super is proving harder to beat than Gianluigi Buffon in a five-a-side goal. It has lifted the Best Scooter trophy for three consecutive years now, thanks to its enduring style, popularity, economy and residual values. We just wish Vespa would build a more robust sidestand and offer heated grips. Manchester is considerably colder than Milan.

"The GTS is the perfect distillation of the iconic Vespa brand. Not cheap in this segment, but it’s a class act that blends the best case of style, fun and frugal running costs."

Runner-up: Yamaha Tricity 125

A worthy scooter for sensible shoes types. A superb ‘buy with your head’ option, though compared to the Vespa, it’s about as stylish as a pair of Teflon-coated trousers.
