My love affair with bikes started 30 years ago when I was 20 years old and found myself the proud owner of a Honda CB250. Soon after - a CB 360. That was until an oil slick in the Broadway at Reservoir - cause an accident - ouch!
I stuck with push bikes after that until an add for a little Honda Scooter caught my eye a year ago - $2000 - this could be good.
After a little fast talking the "boss" reluctantly let me have my way. After a little research - the Honda felt a little small , but I was… Read Full Review

Initially I was looking around at smaller 125cc scooters to travel about 30km one way into work every day, but 3/4 of this is on a highway with lots of log trucks. Saw the Bolwell Firenze on the floor of the local dealer and was immediately impressed even though it was more than I was thinking of spending.
From first ride I was hooked and things just keep getting better. I now use this bike as my primary means of transport.
Fuel economy has been pretty good so far and I average around 4.5 -… Read Full Review

An ideal blend of power and great handling, lots of storage and still very economical. I wanted a quieter 'cruiser' kind of scooter, and the feet forward position also makes it very comfortable and safe. If you are considering buying one, it will look big in the showroom, but it feels small and nimble once you ride it. Make up your mind after your test ride… Read Full Review

I thoroughly enjoy riding the Bolwell Firenze 250, but find it a bit disconcerting that the fuel gauge can be a bit iffy, and from the one long ride I have done, it doesn't seem overly economical, as I thought it would have. All the other points, whether good or bad, seem to have already been covered by others, so I wont go repeating what has already been said… Read Full Review

Have not ridden a motor bike for about 14 years so I was a little apprehensive when I first ventured out. Having had the Bolwell Firenze 250 bike for a week and travelling about 800 km I find the bike economical around 335 km per tank or 25km per litre, travelling consistently over 100 km hour this would drop dramatically. Bruce's comments were great and helped me to choose the bike. The style, ride and comfort are great if you want a scooter that handles well and has the ability to keep up… Read Full Review

Whilst I have only been riding for a relatively short while, I quickly realised that I loved it so much I would have to upgrade my first 100cc Peugeot for a larger touring scooter. I recently purchased a new Bolwell Firenze 250cc (sold outside Australia as the Sym GTS Voyager 250 and also known as the Joymax in some countries). After just three weeks of riding this scooter I can confirm that the upgrade is the most enjoyable decision I have made in recent memory!
Apart from my experience on… Read Full Review
