Pages 58-59 of the Owner's Manual provide details about the Digital Display. Item "N" is the "Provision for tyres low pressure icon" and is the standard TPMS low-pressure warning symbol.
No additional details appear in the Manual, nor have Google searches revealed anything to me.
Did anyone get the facts about this?

my understanding:

not yet a feature. they _may_ add tpms in future models using which could have the same dash or it may be a yet to be released option that you could add.

Thanks for that. Would be nice if they got this sorted; from what I see here, valve stem cap TPMS sensors aren't a good idea.

that's the general opinion. I added internal to my gts see https://modernvespa.com/forum/topic175875. if you don't want to run an app you can get similar internal tpms that come with a small module you mount on you dash/handle bars.

So: buy a tire plugger kit, manually check the pressures, and wait for Vespa to do the right thing... I can do that.

Oh why is that?

I've been running a Fobo bluetooth TPMS kit for at least 7 years on my bikes without any problems. I plan to add it to my new GTS. If my valve stem isn't metal, I upgrade it prior to installing one.

To the OP: it would be nice if they offered a TPMS system integrated into the dash from the factory but it would be super expensive like their factory heated grips and seat with their additional cables and harness.

As I read here: TPMS Tire Pressure Monitoring System
I, too, ran FOBOs on my CanAm Spyder for years without an issue - but opinions seem to be conflicting.
