Improperly galvanized brake lines can reduce braking

Piaggio Group Americas is recalling 483 model year 2020-2021 Vespa GTS 300 and GTV 300 scooters.

Improperly galvanized brake pipe terminals can result in excessive front and/or rear brake levers travel during braking.

Reduced braking efficiency can lengthen the distance needed to stop the scooter, increasing the risk of a crash.

What to do

Piaggio will notify owners, and dealers will test the O-Ring, replace the brake fluid and bleed the brake system, or replace the brake pipes based on the vehicle's age free of charge.

The recall was expected to begin October 21, 2020.

Owners may contact Piaggio customer service at (212) 380-4433. Piaggio's number for this recall is PP2ZZQ2003_GTS/GTV.
