Don't think it can be done, but it's not all that difficult to pull off the headset.

Try these links:

https://modernvespa.com/forum/article26930

These aren't specifically about changing a headlamp bulb, but each shows how to get access to it. A couple of wrenches, a screwdriver and about 15 minutes and you're off and running.

Try it!

The only way I know how to get to it is by removing the headset fairings as posted above.

and a word of warning ... take your time the especially the first time. There are two tabs that are easy too break. My vespa mechanic broke mine and didn't even tell me. I found out by changing out my headlight to hid. Boy was i pissed since a year passed before i cracked mine open to do the swap.

Its really not hard too do.

opening up the headset the first time can be kind of a pita for sure. one suggestion, have a clear area with a towel to set the front of the headset on. this will prevent scratches to the headlight lens. also be careful so as not to drop screws etc down inside the scoot. take it slow, you shouldn't have any problems.

The upside to busting the tabs is headset removal becomes a doodle. Doesn't quite make up for the rattle though.
