Okay, It can be done. But you will need the Vespa headlight rim, not one of the stick on ones, an adapter to plug it into the harness, and you will need to drill two holes, and make one slot, in your existing headset.
I bought a chrome front handlebar cover, because it was cheap and I suspected I would be cutting into it, and I did.

The light does look good, and illuminates better. I'm not sure yet how it will do long term, but am willing to find out. I will post photos eventually.

Here is the new GTS HPE LED headlight assembly on my 2006 GT 200. Someone who knows what they are doing could make it a lot cleaner installation.

You will need the following parts:
Piaggio LED Headlight assembly
Piaggio Rim for headlight assembly- comes in chrome or black
cable to adapt to the H4 input in the older vespa
2 small screws. I used stainless, about 12-13mm long.
2 speed nut clips. I used the ones that are fairly standard, but it would be better to use smaller ones.

Installing it will require you to drill two small holes and cut a groove in the headset.

I've got a stack of them, and have the assembly on the site, as well as the outer rim in chrome, I think. I haven't put it together as a kit yet. I've got the wiring adapters coming later this week.

Here is the kit. We have a couple left, and so far nobody who installed one has set their bike on fire. The biggest issue is mounting the HPE trim ring on the existing headset.
