Does anyone know if there is a safety feature in the seat where a 2018 Vespa GTS300 is on the center stand idling when there is no one sitting on the seat the engine will cutout back to idle when you roll on the throttle a little?

Yes...my BV350 has it too. I think it is so the bike can't take off if rocked back on the rear wheel.

I think it's the asr? The rear wheel is rolling but the front isn't, confuses the computer.

correct.

there is no seat sensor in a GTS. But you need to disable the ASR if you want to rev it

I understand now, disable the asr first if i want to rev it. I guess my ase was on.
When the "ASR" indacator illuminates on the screen, does that mean the ASR is activated?
I always kept the ASR not illuminated on the screen thinking the ASR is disabled.

the asr light is the other way around

1. it flashes after turning on the ignition until you start moving
2. once you start moving the light turns off. This means the asr is enabled.
3. pressing the switch for a a second makes the light come on and stay on. This means the asr is disabled.
4. if it flashes quickly while riding this means it has decided to intervene, ie telling the ecu to cut power. This can happen if you accelerate quickly from stationary

Think of it this way: a clear dash with no lights on is a happy bike.

Understood, then that means ive been having the ASR enabled this whole time.
Ive never seen it flash, but thats probably because i havent looked on the dash when i accelerate quickly. Ill take a look next time.
Thank you for the helpful info.

Actually it is the Piaggio MP3 which has a seat sensor which prevents the engine from being revved when the rider is not on the seat. This is important, of course, because an MP3 will fall off it's tilt lock if this occurs.

The mp3 has one? Well that makes sense to have that feature.
Only reason i ask is cause the dealer told me there is a sensor in the seat that prevents the engine to rev too high. Maybe he was putting it in simple terms to explain for me to understand.
Who knows really.. but im going to try revving the engine a little when the ASR is enabled and disabled.
