I do not see a lot of competition meeting all above criterias..?
Maybe I am not aware of something, pls update me.

Depends on what you need just as you say. The fact remains that this is a good scooter that should have more power. I put a couple of thousand miles on one in Spain and I came away with this. Great scooter just a bit large for the power.

Too bad because I was considering buying one as soon as they came to the US.
I ended up buying a SYM and it meets the above sans ABS. I've survived 40 years without abs and as much as I'd like too have it not a deal breaker.

The SYM is faster, lighter and far more agile. It also has more underseat storage. The Burgman is superior as far as the ride. Smooth as silk.

It also has a ton of under seat storage.

Contents from under seat .

Full face helmet
Rain Jacket and Pants
Long sleeve tee
HiVis Safety vest
Gloves and do rag
Small tool kit
Small backpack

Yes I'm partial to this scoot. I looked long and hard at the choices and the SYM is hard to beat.
