Ride Review: SYM XS125-K

SYM is the #1 selling scooter brand in SA but they also enjoy a healthy representation in the entry level commuter and commercial road bike market, all thanks to their very popular XS125. In a market where price does matter, consumers are faced with two scenarios. Option 1: Pay a high price and feel confident […]

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 […]

SYM QUADRAIDER 600 4X4

by ZA Bikers. The quad market has certainly seen some ups and downs in recent years, especially in the recreational segment where sport quad sales peaked towards the end of 2007. 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.

SYM GTS 300i EVO – THE FREEDOM OF THE CITY

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 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 […]
