"Hi all, fyi - I had a copy made of my "spare" key today ($165) so I now have two - yay! My take away from this experience is that it's cheaper to buy a blank ($44) and program it from the master (if you have it) but not the end of the…"

"Jo, the biggest advantage of the master key is that you can use it to program blank blue keys. You can do it yourself on your scooter. It means that you can purchase a blank blue key and have it cut anywhere and then program it yourself."

"Glad you have some options of locksmiths.  The Master Key (Brown Key) holds the computer chip for your vespa, that is the importance of it Jo.  This one can't be copied.  Hopefully you do find it one day.   Cheers Julie"

"Hi Jo, I bought a GT 200 last year that came without the blue key and only a single brown key. I looked into buying a Vespa blank key but didn't and instead arranged for a mobile locksmith to supply the blank and make a copy from the brown key.…"

"Hi Jo, I think that Vespa keys are compatible with Fiat keys so it might be worth checking with a Fiat dealer. The key that can be copied from a non master key will obviously not be a master but it will be a totally reliable spare. If I'm any…"

"Hi Jo You could just get a a copy of your blue key so you have a back up.  To get a new master key will cost over $1000.... If you can find a key cutter that has the right machine that can replicate your blue key it will cost around $100. …"

Lost master key

Hi, the master key for my Vespa Sprint 125ie has been "missing" for some time. I keep hoping it will turn up but think I now need to accept that it' gone for good.The ramifications are stressful. I have been looking at online forums that suggest workarounds but the site's don't seem to be Australian. Does anyone know if there is a legitimate local solution other than the costly replacement of the ECU, lock and reprogramming of new keys? JoSee More
