Swapped a Honda for this one ,it has 45000 km but full sevice history and I have to say it's a good scoot,handles well powerfull enough to blast on the motorway and nippy on side roads.some corrosion to the chassis and back wheel but that's an easy fix. Just ordered a bigger screen from Germany so will be fine with that fitted as the stock screen is a bit short on height. Also swapped the tyres to Pirelli's,much better than the Bridgestones as fitted. … Read Full Review

I have put over 700. miles in three weeks and I am not happy with the small windshield... Where can I buy a taller windshield ?...I live in Pennsylvania..USA ..Any help and I would be… Read Full Review

ok i've had my 250i gts for a week now and i'm loving it.....i've had a honda dylan 125 before this bike and to compare it to it would be hard because the honda is a great bike....but with the honda not building a 250 which is what i wanted i went for a sym..... i looked at the yamaha city but was to exspensive, as my buget was limited. so over all the sym is what i wanted at size and cost.....having not known about the sym before i'm happy with it so far. the power is good and the size of the… Read Full Review

i have had korean, japanese and italian scooters in the past and this is my seventh. i would say that this Sym GTS 250 is the best in terms of handling, power, economy, and reliability. i use it everyday for work, put 10,000 kms on it without any major maintenance work. recently decided to keep the gts and sell the tmax 500 instead… Read Full Review

The Sym GTS 250 is a fantastic machine for a 250cc, once owned a X9500 and this bike beats it hands down for comfort and handling. only gripe i have is the oil sign that lights up every 1000km telling you to change the oil,..1000km! too soon surely! and there is no tool to adjust the rear shocks, very bad thing for sym to be doing for a new bike. Other than those things, i wouldnt change it for any other bike… Read Full Review

Just an update now I've had the Sym GTS 250 for a couple of months. I've fitted a Multivar 2000 Malossi variator (158 pounds) and the initial and 'in gear' acceleration is awesome and there's a few miles an hour extra top speed too. The engine revs a bit higher at lower speeds so have lost about 5/6 mpg. Well worth it though. Recently done a 500 mile round trip and the scoot was comfortable, absolutely reliable and cruised on the motorway at an easy 68/70 mph!!. This is an impressive piece of… Read Full Review

Sym GTS250cc Excellent scooter. I have been riding it in New Zealand for about 8 month and I have done on it over 16 000 km.
It goes smooth and it is very comfortable to ride in a traffic on motorway. Easily taking over another cars.
Possible to ride the distance over 300 km for full tank of fuel ( 12 L), which is quite economical… Read Full Review

Ibought my 2006 Sym Voyager 250 a couple of months ago and had to replace the clutch rollers and belt almost straight away at a cost of 183 pounds. This was a very disappointing start. The headlight bulb blew and the whole of the front fairing had to be removed. On my previous scooter, a Honda Foresight 250, it took just a couple of minutes. The Honda was always going to be a hard act to follow, however, the Sym has aquitted itself well. The engine is smoother than the Honda and has more… Read Full Review

It really need to improve in alot of areas for it to be a great touring scooter , the aero features of the scooter has some faulty areas of the design of the acutal scooter itself , the realiblity is good. The scooter width 890mm with is to wide for a actual touring scooter , I actually own a 2500c black 2007 Firenze in australia , I will definaely not a another sym scooter in the future , my perference would paggio or aprila scooter because of the longer service internvals every 10,000 kms… Read Full Review

I bought the Sym 250GTSi to replace a Honda Deauville 650cc and I am not disappointed. My journeys are mainly commuting a short distance to work on urban roads and there is little difference between the two bikes. Acceleration is quick from the lights, easily leaving the cars back at the line.
The riding position is very comfortable, especially feet up, with a soft seat that has a raised back. The screen is nice and big, pushing the headwind over me although it would be good to have something… Read Full Review

Comfortable to ride, enough power to easily & safely overtake those annoying 95kph drivers. Looks good & folding mirrors make it easy to get round corners into home parking space.
Have owned this for 2 months, after previously owning a Suzuki 125J scooter - both good, but the power & comfort of this are great. Have ridden 500km in a day for a meeting and had no problems on open highways, also back country roads fine. Used primarily to commute, and goes really well in traffic. Really good value… Read Full Review

Bought to replace a 250 Yamaha majesty which was getting a bit long in the tooth.
The Yamaha Majesty managed more MPG in the low to mid 80s on My 12 mile rural commute & was slightly more refined with a more comfy seat.
The Sym is a good value for money machine which could be even better with a higher standard screen as the wind noise even with ear plugs in is deafening!
Would consider the new 300cc one with fuel injection & a higher screen or might try a used Majesty 400.
Overall though a good… Read Full Review

My previous machine was a Kawasaki Classic. This is my first scooter and I'm very, very surprised at the stability and handling. I ride, primarily, in city traffic where handling, breaking, and lighting are all important and the GTSi fits the bill handily.
I purchased this machine based on reviews like this on and on the word of some guy about my age (60) I met that was riding last year's model. Purchase price was factor also as I didn't know what I was getting into with a scooter… Read Full Review

This is an awesome scoot! I have had mine for about 2 months now and put a little less than 1800 mi on her. The quality is top-notch and the ride is comfortable and fun. I initially purchased mine to commute, but it is such a joy to ride, I am now riding on the weekends just to ride. Highly recommended!… Read Full Review
