So in the discussions with the authorized Vespa repair person an interesting tidbit came out, here is from an e-mail with the repair person:
the kickstart is mainly for looks...the vespa has always had a kickstart since the 40's and they wanted it to be similar but it only works if the bike is really hot...

Wow! I'm glad that when I was having the batter problems that I wasn't stuck some remote place late at night counting on the kickstart to work.

Dear Vespa, if you include a feature on a product, please make sure it works and isn't just cosmetic.
