First I would like to say HELLO to all the members and thank you for letting me join.
I have just bought, on the 7th July, a Vespa GTS 300 HPE Supertech, nice shiny black in colour like my Primavera. Two hours before I was booked to pick it up from the dealers they called to say they had found two bodywork issues, asked if I could come and take a look. One was where the headlight fits, not quite right and the other, a mark I couldn't see on the left hand side panel, we agreed they should be done under warranty and gave me a letter and photo's to confirm this. When I picked it u later I did a steady 50km before going home, all ok.
Next day I decided to check oil's, fluids and tire pressures, all ok then I took most of the afternoon setting the Supertech screen up and putting the app on my phone. I noted that when I started the engine and moved the scooter the ABS light went out but the ASR icon stayed on, tried pushing the ASR switch but nothing changed. I did a general search on the net and found it's quite a common problem, this Forum and others including "Robot" on Scooterwest YouTube videos detailed ways to reset the ASR and it's also covered in the handbook. I tried, got the ASR light flashing slowly, must have done quite a few kilometers at 30kph but no luck the light stayed on. During this process the amber engine management light came on, so I called the dealers who asked me to bring it in.
They dealt with the fault, engine management light out and I mentioned the ASR light being on. This is normal I was told, maybe needs a software update or something the only English speaking Mechanic says. I said no, if it's on the ASR system is not working, that's ok you can go faster he says. I decide not to get angry and show him a piece of broken plastic I'd found while cleaning the scooter, he has a look around and finds one of the plastic skirts is broken, under warranty procedure again.
On Saturday I did over 200km with no further problems other than the ASR icon showing all the time. I'm concerned that the ASR system is not working at all or have I missed something? Does anyone know if a software update is due/needed or even available or any other suggestions.
Thanks in advance for any help or pointing me in the right direction and I hope any further posts I make are a lot shorter.
