There's a VIn decoder that seems to work OK located here:

vin decoding
Very useful article. Just a small addition - In Europe (certainly the UK) Piaggio have neglected to fill in all the fields of the 17 digit format.
Thus an ET2 might read *ZAPC1600000nnnnnn* where 'n' is the serial number. Most inconvenient and frustrating.

Re: VIN Decoding
Until I have 100 posts, I'll put my VIN here. However, I inherited my Vespa and it came with contradictory documentation (LX 150 Manual, but LX 50 registration papers). I believe it is a Vespa LX 50 2008 (not LX 50 4T).

The Chassis VIN (inside the pet carrier and on a plate on the dash) is ZAPC386B285xxxxxx.

The Engine VIN (stamped on the back of the transmission) is C385Mxxxx.

Cheers.

You'll have more luck in General Discussion, but that is for sure an ET4 125 with a LEADER engine. No number plate on it?

Ask the DVLA for the history - give them the VIN.

This is NOT the right place for these questions - start a new topic in General Discussion, and do label it with 'UK' to stop the US folk chiming in with the tenth digit stuff.
