I owned Kymco Agility, now I'm a happy owner of Kymco Downtown as well as SYM HD200 which I meant to replace with the Downtown but I ended up keeping anyway because it is just so good and solid. I've had absolutely no mechanical issues with any of them, so let me put your mind at ease at least in one area: for reliable, no fuss day-to-day use Kymco and SYM products are some of the best you can get. Not just 'for an Asian scooter' but the best, period. I trust Kymco and SYM more than I would any euro scooter, Italian or German.
Consider Downtown if you can - it is a bit smaller and lighter than Burgman 400 but still capable on open roads as well as in the city (looks a bit bulky but looks are deceptive!). Yet thanks to its maxi-scooter shape it has pretty decent storage space under the seat which I find very useful.
