I got a really neat tool for removing plastics on scooters. It's from a Taiwanese company called Bikeservice. They make parts for servicing bikes. I got it from a distributor in Italy, thought about selling them and then found them on Dennis Kirk for $7.

I just used it to take my SMax apart. It would work very well for removing headsets on modern Vespa models.

One thing I recommend prior to taking any plastics off is to look at a parts fiche or parts diagram, and see where the tabs are and how they come apart. That one step saves a lot of time getting the bike apart and figuring out how to repair broken tabs.

It's part BS6050
