La Mutata – italian for „the mutated“ – is the combination of the modern Vespa classic GTS with Piaggio’s biggest single-cylinder engine.

The conversion of a Vespa GTS to 500cc is made in Germany. A lot of time was invested into the development to make it drive perfectly and look as original as possible.

The impressive power and torque of the 500cc engine makes it a completely new riding experience. All components, like suspension and brakes are engineered and tested to cope with the increased power and speed.
