I'm with you, I have the 2012 TB Storm in the matte finish. It does look awesome. As for the cleaning, I wash it using a very diluted soapy water with a sponge, and a thorough rinse. I polish the pipes and other areas that need a 'sparkle' and it was advised to me to get bugs off and bird crap, etc... Get a wet towel and leave it on the area with the crap on it for 10 minutes. This softens the bugs, crap, etc and makes it easier to wash away with cold water. It was also advised to me to only wash with COLD water. I think the Matte finish is easier to keep clean, but that's my opinion. Hope this helps.
Vespa to the Storm!
