Yes Meldrew Sir, the Kawasaki J300 ( Kymco ) i have has the same thing. The only difference i can see is that to close it you use a little yellow button on the slot outer rim to open it the same as the Burger, the back end of the key.

Definately din't need the original key to close it. You can shut it with any key or even a large flat headed screwdriver or anything that will fit in that hex.
Paddle harder. I can hear banjo music!

Haven't SYM also got the keyhole shutter on some of their models.
I don't know about the other models as I haven't looked, but the Maxsym has one. I don't bother with it as it's too fiddly and I have an immobiliser fitted. Secure enough for me with a good padlock and chain. I didn't bother with it on either of my Burgmans either for the same reasons.

Yes - that was a feature on my 300 Citycom
