Does anyone know what this "A" dash icon on my 2021 GTS300 HPE is for? No mention in the manual and it doesn't light up when turning on the scooter.

On a car it is the Engine Start-Stop Light. Designed to save fuel in stop-and-go city driving. Reduces amount of time the engine idles.

Perhaps a harbinger of an auto Start/Stop Vespa?😝

I have no idea, but thank you for sending me down a rabbit hole.

You're right, I don't see it in the manual.

I do see an Alamy Stock photo that shows it illuminated.

Does it light up when you park the bike?

I think the A stands for 'another' ..and the arrow is going around the A, so the bike is saying 'another go around, please.'

Best to just keep riding so the light says off.

This looks like an article from 2017 :

Vespa adds stop-start tech to save fuel
Quote:
The new Vespa GTS scooter range includes stop-start technology to switch off the engine when stationary and automatically restart when the brake is released.

The GTS 125 iGet in Europe has an automatic Stop - Start engine function. Compact, LC, with the radiator mounted directly on it, flywheel side…

It would be costly to do a dedicated speedometer for the 300 so they use the same on both models…

That's pretty rad - shame it isn't being shipped out on more models (although it must suck big time when these features act up on you)
