“2008 SYM 250 GTS”

Written on: 18/05/2012 by maxspeed70 (1 review written)

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

When I bought my GTSi I was told that the taller windshield would set-up a vibration at higher speeds and was advised against. This info came from the importer's main showroom manager.

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

Written on: 02/08/2009

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

The oil service light should come on every 3000km which is approximately 1800 miles. If yours doesn't there is a problem with it as the hand/service book also says 3k.

I can vouch for that 24kms/ltr figure. I've had my 250 for just over 4 years and have kept close track of my fuel consumption. As of last week I've got an average of 23.49k/pl (55+MPG) and the majority of my driving is short hops of 10k or less.

Written on: 25/06/2009 by paul54 (2 reviews written)

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.

Written on: 06/04/2009 by paul54 (2 reviews written)

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

If your scooter is out of warranty I would have changed the belt and roller myself...it's not as difficult as you think and you woul have saved yourself a lot of money. £183 is far too much for what should be a relatively simple job for a dealer. I wonder how much they charged you for the belt? Personally I think you were ripped off....sorry

Also, luck on getting 10000km out of a piaggio or aprilla. The book says 5000k but all the service agents say 3000km.

I think you'll find Piaggio a lot less reliable than SYM. In my experience and that of many members of a major scooter forum in the UK Piaggio simply cannot match SYM in the reliablity stakes, far too many of their machines are plagued by electrical problems.

Written on: 31/12/2008

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

Written on: 15/12/2008 by Dave Mac (1 review written)

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

Written on: 22/11/2008 by Pure and Symple (1 review written)

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
