Vespa GTS Malossi tuning

Vespa GTS on the test bench with Malossi Tuning

Some tuning measures were carried out on the Vespa GTS by Bernd (customer), both visually and technically:

Engine: Vespa GTS with Malossi Tuning

Everything from Malossi was installed on the engine, from the cylinder, cylinder head, clutch, variator and gearbox. So the GTS has real pressure from below, that There is an increase in performance across the entire engine speed range on, and thanks to the Malossi Forcemaster2, the rev limiter is reduced by 1.000 rpm. raised, measured on this vehicle 10.500 rpm.

The 4 different setting maps of the Malossi Forcemaster2, depending on the expansion stage, also have the option of changing the injection quantity + -20% at min / medium / max.

  • Curve 0: original cylinder, original camshaft, original cylinder head and Malossi exhaust with DB killer
  • Curve 1: original cylinder, original camshaft, Malossi cylinder head and Malossi exhaust with DB killer
  • Curve 2: Malossi cylinder, original camshaft, Malossi cylinder head and original exhaust
  • Curve 3: Malossi cylinder, original camshaft, Malossi cylinder head and Malossi exhaust with DB killer

Built-in Malossi tuning for Vespa GTS

The following parts from the Scooter Center Vespa shop:

Test Pinasco cylinder Vespa Wideframe

Wasp Wideframe Tuning

The Vespa Wideframe-Models are enjoying increasing popularity.

In addition to more and more replacement parts, there is also vigorous development in the area of ​​increasing performance.
So far, existing cast iron cylinders have been rebuilt in order to wrest a little more performance from them with a lot of effort.

New Pinasco Faro Basso cylinder

Pinasco will soon be offering an aluminum cylinder 160ccm for the old Vespa engines with 3 stud bolts.

Our loyal customer Andreas Nagy, who has always been a great friend of these somewhat special Vespa models, deals very carefully with increasing the performance of the Wideframes and works closely with Pinasco in this area.

With a Prototype of the 160cc V2 cylinder he visited us on our dynamometer.

We would have liked to have taken an even closer look at the 160 Pinasco.
The prototype of this cylinder was unfortunately hidden under the cooling hood.

Wasp Wideframe racing exhaust

On our Scooter Center We tested some exhaust systems with Andreas on the P4 test bench. Of course, there is also a bgm PRO BigBox Touring exhaust for the PX models, where we have modified the suspension so that it fits onto the Wideframe fits.

10PS and 100 km / h

Secure; In the age of a Malossi MHR, with which more than 35HP can be achieved almost playfully on a PX, the 10 horses of this Pinasco racing cylinder are not exactly breathtaking. However, you should also look at the original “performance” of the Wideframecall s to your memory! Originally with around 5HP, a maximum of 70km / h was possible on a flat stretch.

With now 10PSthat on Tugging 8 inch small rear wheel, and a suitable primary reduction, are mileage of over 100km / h possible, as can be found on an original PX200, for example.

We are curious to see the potential with which Pinasco will send the cylinder into the race.

Of course, you can find out about the latest news here, from us at Scooter Center Blogging!


Wasp Smallframe Polini Evo 133

Wasp Smallframe with Polini cylinder over 20HP


Today our customer John was again with his Vespa Smallframe on our Scooter Center Test bench.

Where can I find a few more horsepower in my Vespa engine? John

More power for the Vespa

During his last visit, he asked us what changes he could still make to his engine in order to find a little more power.

After we had briefly discussed what its current setup looks like, we were actually able to give some pointers through which more top performance can be obtained.


Motor setup

Basically, the engine is equipped with a Polini Evo cylinder, a 54 bgm crankshaft. The 30th Mikuni TMX carburetor is attached to an MRP suction device. The very best prerequisites to become a clear Ü20 unit.

With an additional processing of the outlet and the conversion of the Polini membrane to 2 flaps, the following result comes out:


Polini Evo 133 Vespa Smallframe on the test stand Polini Evo 133, L&S Franz, Polini Membrane, MRP

With Kytronic even better

Due to the larger outlet area, the exhaust can work much better. The small loss at 6500rpm is unfortunately due to the missing Kytronic. In the current state (red curve), a standard PK ignition system provides a ZZP of 18 ° before TDC. their service. With the Kytronic it is certainly possible to shift the red curve back to the left at 200 rpm, in the direction of the performance that starts earlier.

But all in all a nice number - have fun with it on the street!




Vespa 235cc

35PS and 34NM to start with

Vespa 235cc

About 235ccm on one CNC motor housing are also more of an exception to the test for us.

Few enthusiasts dare to take on such a financial and mechanical challenge. The outwardly rather inconspicuous, silver Vespa PX, hides the technical eye-catcher under the right hood.


27.06.2014 007

The engine, carved out of solid aluminum, is manufactured with a sufficiently large membrane intake manifold.

The crankcase is filled by a 38 Keihin Airstriker in a very short and direct way.

27.06.2014 002

Gearbox is designed for over 50HP

The valuable filling from the crankcase is then transported into a Simonini cylinder borrowed from aircraft engine construction during the flushing process. The 70mm bore results in 235ccm on this engine!

The gearbox of this Vespa PX200, actually 235, is of course not off the shelf either. The company KR-Automation has reached into buttons and developed a very elaborately manufactured Vespa gearbox that can withstand a power of over 50HP over the long term.

Here are the inner values

Simoninii 235

At the moment “only” 35HP and 34Nm are pulling on the main shaft.

However, as the owner credibly assured us, this will be further optimized and we will soon meet again on the test bench to look for more horses.

We are very curious!
