Maybe ,,,go into the library,,,there's a test for the charging system,,,it may be the stator not producing enough power,,,as a side the electrical systems on these scooters is marginal at best,,,I would consider switching all the lights in the bike to LED,,,saves a bunch of power and in most cases run brighter than the filament builds ,,,altho you have a genuine they usually are very strong ,,,,not your typical Chinese scooter,,,I have a genuine myself and have been well pleased
Well it is one of the "premium" Taiwanese brands,,,as pointed out if your not having trouble with starting ,,, but if it were mine I would at least investigate it,,, it just seems low to me,,, I'd be much happier with 14v or better,, I have like a magnito setup on mine so when running the lites get dim at idle at a stop,,,, kind of a pissoff,,, but it is what it is,,,,& occasionally if it sits for a longer period of time it won't start with the button,,, thank the gods the thing has a kicker that actually works ,,, it will run with a completely defunct battery,,,
Good idea switching to LED bulbs. I have had starting problems lately but it could be because my battery is only 6 amp hours. I will receive an 8.6 amp hour battery next week. I will keep the charged 6 amp hour battery in my storage compartment in case I need to jump start.

My first scooter was a used 125cc 1988 Yamaha Riva. I put 10,000 miles on that scooter. My current scooter is a Genuine Buddy 170i.
I would do a little math when switching bulbs. Take the total oem watts or curent draw and stay under it and you will find the leds are much brighter for the same curent draw. Less curent leaves higher working voltage.
