So I have installed some bar-end mirrors. I have some old Jettin bar ends that I used for it, but it left the ugly holes in the brake cylinder covers which I wanted to cover up. I tried using a carbon fibre wrap, but it was too hard to wrap around the corners and didn't work, my next idea was to get on Aliexpress and see if they had anything. They did. So I ordered, waited for 3 weeks (it sat for a week in customs here in Australia!)

Anyways I've installed them. They sit up too high, so I need to sand or cut them down a bit, but I think I like 'em.

Personally, I always used the original Piaggio rubber plugs that go on most "1 mirror" models, depending the market or displacement. I don't know if they will cover this hole though, cause I never had a modern vespa. Piaggio part code is: 562897

I think your Vespa is the standard for yellow vespas - one day I will be somewhere up near your standards.
