Am I losing my mind ? I've popped the left knee cover off 3 times trying to find the alarm interface plug so that I can tap into the plug for 12VDC switched power. I have seen pictures on earlier GTS models where the connector is right there in plain sight, or tucked down slightly away. Has there been a change in which the plug was relocated, eliminated, or revised ? Thanks

The alarm plug is right where it always was. What's different is the plastic leg shield doesn't have an access hole, just slots outlining the hole.

Robot has a video showing using a knife cutting between the slots to create the access hole.

If you find it, please let us know and post a pic if you can, as I'm interested in moving over my plug'n'play alarm interface plug from my current GTS to HPE GTS.

Mine (also 2020 HPE) was 2-3" below cutout.

If it is the big white round connector, then I see it..... I was expecting a rectangular connector about the same size as the alarm interface adaptor plug ?

Alarm and GTS 300 HPE
Websites currently list the alarm sold by Piaggio as not fitting any ABS models.

Since there still is an alarm connector, which alarm does fit a modern Vespa with ABS (i.e. the GTS 300 HPE)?

Living in NYC, I have no illusions that an alarm will hinder anyone determined to steal a Vespa, though at least it might alarm me and be part of a security system.

Piaggio has given us the following part codes for the HPE. I assume they're universal...

Alarm: 1D001770
Wiring: 1D001795

Yes the alarm connector on the abs and hpe models is harder to find, the round one isn't in the same place as the earlier models. On mine it was taped and clamped just below the horn.

I have just done an install on my 2018 GTS 300 abs and it all installs fine. My wiring set up for the abs seemed to be slightly different from the instructions there was supposed to be an earth wire from abs system to the indicator relay bracket but it wasn't there.

Has anybody got an idea how to get the system into programming mode. The instructions that come with the alarm are badly translated from Italian which makes them hard to follow. It says to turn the alarm off and on 3 times with a 0.5 second gap and it is put into programming mode but I can't get it to work.

It is kind of mind blowing that companies the size of Piaggio cannot get localization better. Don't get me wrong they are far from the only ones but still... Both my Ural and BMW manual have a few tiny issues but nothing that matters. A Vespa is a premium scooter and documentation should be properly translated to English from Italian for everything officially Piaggio. Italian accessory manufacturers I can give a pass to but not Piaggio proper.

If you figure it out let us know.

You might see if your dealer will help - but I can say that mine has refused, and Vespa won't deal with the end user on this. Likely because from what I can tell the alarm unit needs a firmware update they haven't delivered.

For documentation I found it was better going to the Italian and translating that via Google to clear up some of the functional points. However as you have noticed in the USA we can't reliably get into programming mode likely because it doesn't come with the electronic key that's documented - that appears to be needed to enter programming node. For my scooter, I know that it's not referring to the the scooter key or master.

In my experience I wasted alot of money having the dealer install this- because if you ever loose your original alarm fob you won't be able to disable the alarm until you remove the unit from the scooter.

I don't think Piaggio worries much about how their products are used outside of Italy by non-Italians.

That's a bit strange for a publicly traded company.
