HA NOI (Biz Hub) – Piaggio Viet Nam said it is recalling 628 imported scooters manufactured between May 13, 2009 and August 31, 2010 to check and repair possible fuel pipe defects, Vietnamplus reported.

The Piaggio series being recalled this time includes the Beverly, Vespa GTS and the Vespa LXV. Specifically, Piaggio Viet Nam will provide free services for two Piaggio Beverly 125 models, in particular for those, whose vehicle identification number (VIN) begins from *APM691000*, 359 Vespa GTS 125 models, with VIN starting from *ZAPM453000* and 267 Vespa LXV125 models, with VIN beginning from *ZAPM68102*.

The Italian motorbike manufacturer's periodic quality checks had revealed that there is some problem with the rotor of the fuel pipe in these particular scooters. The defect might cause difficulties in starting the engine or even stopping it when the vehicle is used constantly and the surrounding environment's temperature is high.

So far, no vehicle owners have faced the problem or reported it. The time required for checking and repairing a scooter is estimated to be between 40 and 90 minutes.

The free service is being provided since January 23 at all Piaggio branches nationwide. – VNS
