Sym X-Pro 125

Sym scooters are designed to take more! We took a long hard look at the Orbit ll and saw potential; potential for a custom-designed delivery bike. We fitted a single seat, which gives more room for a large rear carrier frame, perfect for large delivery boxes. We’ve beefed up the rear suspension to increase the […]

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.

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.
