I noticed that one can purchase "blank" Vespa chipped brown keys online.

I have the original Brown key to my Vespa. Will a Zed Bull programmer correctly clone a new brown key from my working original brown key?

I know that , with my Brown key, I can get any number of blue keys cut and program them to my bike. I'm just wondering if I can create a brown key copy.

No, at least not that way! The Piaggio master key blanks cannot themselves be programmed, and nor can the Piaggio service key blanks. The ECU has to be programmed first to a master key (this can normally happen only once) and can then be programmed to up to seven service keys.

However, blanks are available that *can* be flashed to be copies (clones) of either a master or service key. These are different beasts entirely, and any good auto locksmith should be able to use an existing Piaggio key to clone it to one of these blanks.

The answer is a cheap chinese key chip cloner. It can do a clone of any chip, no matter if brown or black. Next you simply install it into a cut key. You may even choose to make it blue or red
