2022 brand new 500 HPE, only 150Km in the clock.

Today I use for the first time the reverse switch (I like to test how it works), and surprise surprise! the D and R letter (white over the black switch) goes away, peeled off like a simple coat of paint, not gravel like I would expect, so now the switch is completely black with no indications on it!

Any ideas? Is that normal? Any ideas to fix without need to purchase a new switch? I receive a bad batch of switch?

As above so a permanent white marker will help until switch is changed under warranty

In my country don't exist a Piaggio dealer, so warranty is not an option

I'm thinking about put some permanent vinyl stickers in the mid time as waiting for the part (more that USD $35 )

If it's important/confusing, I tend to use a Dremel tool and create an intuitive pattern.
