I'm new to Vespas and this forum. Hoping you all can help me with an issue...
A few months ago I picked up a new 2020 Primavera 50 for my girlfriend and I. Perfect for the city where parking spots are scarce. Fun scooter. Generally.
Generally, because there is a very consistent problem with it:
Everytime I start it "fresh", get on it, and twist the throttle, it will go for about 10 seconds just like normal, but then lose power entirely. If I then kill the engine and start it again, it works perfectly fine for the duration of the ride.
I contacted my dealer/service department and they took a look at it. They say it's because I need to let it idle for about 30 seconds before I start going. Unfortunately, that doesn't seem to help either, though. I've tried letting it sit with just the ignition engaged, then idling for various amounts of time, and none of it really seems to make a consistent difference.
Curious.. Is that something anyone else has experienced? It gets a little dicey when I pull this scooter onto the road with cars zooming by and it suddenly loses all power.. Not exactly the quickest thing in the first place.
Thank you very much for your kind responses!
