Now done 4000 k and scoot running in nicely now,it was like riding a bucking bronco at first it was so tight but now its very good.Brilliant handling and well planted and as the rider you feel solid on most surfaces,The suspension is just let down a little on rough surfaces but you just have to slow down and accept that small wheels will struggle.I cant compare with other scooters because my last one was a Vespa in 1969.100% reliable,starts first time every time and I look forward to riding it… Read Full Review

had this about 15 months now after stepping down from a 650 Bandit as I now only commute and wanted something less heavy with more weather protection and storage. Weather protection is great, keeps off win and rain and I fitted bar muffs for extra cover through winter, storage is fantastic, easily keep my helmet, gloves, waterproofs and bits of shopping under seat, fuel economy is around 85/90 mpg and is very nippy. OK, so it won't keep up with the big boys out of town but as a commuter and… Read Full Review

This scooter is value for money. It doesn't consume much gasoline ie 30+km per litre. The ride is comfortable thank you for the CVT and 171 cc engine. The sitting position is excellent and the broad and thick cushion helps to distribute the rider's weight. The legs are in a relax position as one would sit on a thick padded chair.There is an ample leg space and enough space for a small bag. The ride is smooth on a even road but it can be irritating on uneven and bumpy road. The tiny little… Read Full Review

We enjoyed our time with the scooter and it certainly is an easy runabout compared to my Yam Xj 900!
I would have one at home just for a trip out at weekends but what an English winter would do to this machine I hate to think.
It was a good introduction to scooters for me after 40 years on a bike… Read Full Review

Oil change is most important, every 2k (yes, do it yourself, it takes 10 minutes) and it will hold for a long time. this is my 3rd and last JR 200. I will move to the hyosung MS3 250cc which has 2 disc brakes in front 2 year warranty and closes at 150km.
Overall I think quality junk and she be sold after 2 full years. I'm not talking about putting 15km everyday I'm talking about 40km everyday… Read Full Review

Great overall general purpose scooter. Storage, excellent handling,starts and idles better than the 125 I owned before the 180. Performance is much better for Duel carrigeways and riding 2 up. Good size fuel tank. Good overal fuel economy. Getting around 80 mpg on shortish runs even when rode fairly hard… Read Full Review

The Sym Joyride is very very VERY easy to ride. comfortable, the fact that has frond and rear disk brakes makes it more efficient when you want to stop. large space under the seat . the floor gives you the ability to curry something else with you. very easy to handle in the city... and on the highway if you travel for up to 100 km/hr is quite good yes! I am happy with it! It was what I've been looking for… Read Full Review

I rode on a variety of makes in the past. I have to say that the Sym Joyride is indeed a joy to ride. Ride comfort for rider and pillion is excellent. The seats are wide. The pillion gets to see the road ahead. A good run-around scooter… Read Full Review

Since getting into scooters only a few months ago and buying a second-hand Peugeot Speedfight I quickly realised that I enjoy it so much that I have been looking at upgrading to a bigger scooter and doing some touring.
I am in Australia and the Sym Joyride 180 is re-badged here as the Bolwell LeGrande 200 (not sure why 200 as it is only 171cc!).
I had the fortune to hire a Bolwell LeGrande 200 for a day when I was holidaying in Port Douglas in far north Queensland (tropical paradise!)… Read Full Review
