The UK at least doesn't have Model Year as a concept. You could find out the date of manufacture by asking Piaggio (and probably paying for the privilege), but it's the date of first registration (so when it stopped being 'new') that is on the registration certificate. The VIN just has a 0 (zero) at the tenth digit.
