I have a Vespa GTS300, I have an oil leak , which was leaking from the oil filter area on the bike.
I started the bike I drove it out of my garage I instantly noticed an oil leak on the floor.
I stoped the bike, there was oil leaking from the centre stand area.
I wiped the area clean and it stopped.
The oil filter was in poor condition, thinking it was the cause.
The oil filter was in a very poor condition.
I did an oil change and fitted a new filter.
I am waiting for a new exhaust clamp before I start it.
Some thing in my head is telling me, it's something internal and when I start the it will still be leaking

Fingers crossed that resolves it. You may need to do a bit of crawling around underneath to suss out the source otherwise.

How many miles/age on the bike?

Possibly just an oil fill. error.

Had this happen on my 2018 GTS if you miss the center under the oil fill cap, the oil leaks down and out of the CVT/belt cover, which is just a hollow sleeve under the oil fill cap, leaked down the oil pan to underbody and kickstand

Welcome to Modern Vespa. Think positive and rule out the easy checks. b4 turning negative and having to check the hard to rule out problems, is always a rule I like to follow. I hope you find the problem to be small.

I would definitely use a funnel that fits when changing the oil. Getting oil on the belt and pulleys would not be good.

Nice scoot!
WELCOME TO MV. Unless you can pour liquid better then most , do follow calif. cruising's recommended use of funnel to refill or top off oil.
