Modern Vespa is a family filled with different folks who love and loathe the same things. Helmets, mufflers, and even different front fenders. IMHO Nothing wrong with celebrating a crooked front fender or getting it straightened.

if it bothers you that much take it back to the dealer and have them adjust it, which should be free of charge.

if you're not pleased with the dealer then take it to an indy and have them adjust it and expect to pay hourly rate.

if you don't want to do either, buy a 10mm a new decal set then bust out the hairdryer and DIY.

it'll never be perfect, keep looking and you'll find other flaws.

best to enjoy the countryside for the scenery and not the cow manure

...I like to go around the countryside with the smell of cow manure, it enriches my sensations ...

You can see from this pic that it's not perfectly aligned!
Since I drove 13000 kms this year on it and all good.

... if you turn the handlebar until the central line is aligned, everything will appear centered ... or in any case less crooked.
Ah ... consider the parallax error that can happen when taking pictures.

I haven't seen one large frame modern Vespa that had a front fender that was straight and centered on the wheel and leg shield.

Your misalignment is accentuated by the poor application of the decal. That decal is way off the centerline of the fender.
Exactly, the fenders seem a little off on every Vespa of any kind I have owned or seen.

Probably the fenders are installed with the stickers already put, this to save time. But in doing so there is no centering with the stickers on the shield.
