Piaggio BV200?

Been looking for a scooter for the wife but have a hard time finding just what she wants. The Burgman and the other 400cc+ are just too large and heavy and the 50cc just doesn't have the top speed she wants. We noticed the Piaggio BV200 and it seemed like just what she wants, does over 70mph claimed, has a top and side box option and a windscreen yet its still small. Does anyone know much about Piaggio and reliability or about that scoot or maybe something else that would work well too? She doesn't want a stella or vespa, just doesn't care for the retro look likes the sporty types. Anyone know what mpg you get from these?
