Piaggio has received a hit in its ambitious plans of securing a higher position in the segment of scooters. It has now recalled 2613 scooters to fix issues regarding faulty fuel pumps. The recall comprises 12 Piaggio as well as Vespa models, which have been built between the years 2008 and 2011. As per the documents, which have been released by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the agency responsible for the identification of automobile recalls, the malfunctioning impeller might swell with time. This could lead to an issue of decreased pump clearance, leading to failing to restart. This problem might appear while trying to restart the scooter after it has been off for 15 to 20 minutes.
