Among the 29 (twenty nine) recalls the NHTSA announced this month comes news of the following:

Piaggio Group Americas,Piaggio Group Americas, Inc., a New York, New York establishment, has recalled an estimated 1,328 model year 2019 Vespa GTV 300, GTS 300 and 2020 Vespa GTS 300 HPE Scooters marketed, sold and delivered in the United States.

NHTSA Safety Notification 19V826000 reports the brake lines in the recalled Scooters may have been improperly galvanized, allowing hydrogen to be released into the brake fluid.

The recall began November 27, 2019 and owner-letters will be mailed through January 17, 2020.
