BOTSWANA SYMmetry – Two SYM’s, two Daves’, 1900 K’s and plenty of Ellies

Nothing elicits a feeling of longing and nostalgia in me more than watching a YouTube clip of bikes and buds on a road trip through an arid landscape. I literally feel the heat, smell the dust, revel in the amber glow of the sunset and live for the African aroma of a “hardekool” fire. You […]

SYM GTS 300i EVO – the Slick Route to the Freedom of the City

The “EVO” part of this Sym’s title is spot on. The Taiwanese built scooter started it’s life as a 250, and then evolved into the 263,7cc engine which currently provides it’s thrust. In fact parent company Sym are busy with a bit of an evolution themselves. 2018 world wide sales are significantly up, to more […]

SYM CityCom 300i – Freedom of the City #ScooterRevolution

Ride Review: SYM WOLF SB250Ni

I think it is fair to say that the Taiwanese manufacturer is better known for its range of quality scooters than for its motorcycles. I was therefore intrigued to see how the 250 Wolf would shape up. Whilst new to the South African market, the Wolf has been sold internationally for 4 odd years. 250cc […]

ATV’s were still affordable back then and quickly developed into a craze, rightly so. Quad biking is an adventurous activity and something the entire […]

Gautrain Vs MAXSYM Scooter!

by ZA Bikers. When my mate Grant Scott reviewed the mighty MAXSYM Scooter, he felt that it would make a decent tourer. Well maybe I thought, but let’s really put it’s touring credentials to the test. The shortish travel, firm suspension feels a bit choppy at lower speeds on bumpy back roads. As speeds rise, […]

by Howard Stafford aka Howie Zowie I seldom drive a car in Johannesburg. Traffic in this city is so bad that any journey has the potential to turn into a nightmare experience where people in cars suddenly find themselves trapped like rats because of some trivial incident 10km away. I hate not being in control […]

Ride Review: SYM MAXSYM 600i ABS

by ZA Bikers To be honest I have never considered a scooter above 125cc to have a place in the market. I am not sure if it’s a matter of pride over purpose, but let’s face it, with so many other “proper” motorcycles in a similar price range, why would a maxi-scooter have any appeal? […]

Ride Review: SYM CROX 125

Review by ZA Bikers Scooters are not always in the spotlight and reviews on them are scarce. When we were asked by SYM South Africa to ride one of their most popular models, we jumped at the opportunity. The only question on our minds, how does one review a scooter? On face value, all scooters […]
