I really am not sure if this is a factory issue or if it happened over the weekend. Pretty sure it happened over the weekend when we got married at our house. Lots of people were ooogling the Vespas and this morning when I went out to the garage, I noticed what appears to be a blemish. Doesn't seem to be a scratch as my nail doesn't catch it, you can't feel anything.

I tried to wipe it clean with a brand new damp micro-fibre towel but that didn't take the issue from the body. I will attach a couple photos, hopefully someone with experience on Matte finishes can advise as to what to do... I don't want to make it any worse for sure but if there's a chance I can alleviate the issue, Im all ears!

I think someone might have just rubbed against it or something but I don't want to turn something minor in to something worse on a 2 week old Supertech

That sucks. It's hard to tell in the photos but it looks either like a scratch or paint transfer from sometime rubbing against it.

I think you're right, paint transfer seems accurate.

Congratulations on the nuptials! If it's a paint transfer, you might be able to carefully remove it. Try a little rubbing alcohol on a Q-tip applied in a circular motion.
