Unaware that my ET4 key had a transponder I drilled on the opposite side to make a new key hole on the silicone casing of the key and damaged the key. The electric starts but does not turn on the engine. My spare key which doesn't have the transponder icon does in fact start my vespa.
Is it possible to still make a spare with what I have either the damaged transponder key or spare key.

Will my Vespa do anything different without the transponder key?

Your spare *is* a transponder key (RFID chip inside) - not all keys have the transponder icon. Just get it cloned to obtain another spare.

I'm assuming you do not have the brown Master key that would have originally accompanied the scoot. That's no biggie as long as you always keep at least one working spare service key.
