Possibly some sort of fuel system related issue. I am not sure that you'd call it vaporisation like in the carby days, but something similar. If it soes happen again, try popping the hood and letting it sit for 10 - 15 minutes and see if it spring back into life.
How many kms on it? Maybe the fuel pump is a little low on pressure, or the pressure reg isn't holding the fuel rail pressure at the right level.
