The Vespa 160GS, produced from 1962 to 1964, is the sports model that replaces the 150 GS. At the time it represented the Vespa model with the highest displacement ever produced.
Compared to the previous model, it has a completely new frame and engine, an unusual front suspension in which the shock absorber incorporates the spring (a solution that will then be used on all Small Frame models and on the PX series), a spare wheel integrated under the belly left, an unpublished rear glove box. The latter is the exclusive peculiarity of the first units produced, identified as "160 GS prima serie". It is fast and elegant, reaching 103 km / h top speed, thanks to 8.9 hp of maximum power. It was produced in a single light gray color and with a matching saddle. It will be replaced in 1964 by the Vespa 180 SS.
