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 more)

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 more)

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.

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 more)

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... (read more)

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 more)

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 more)

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... (read more)

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... (read more)

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... (read more)

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 more)

Only had this Sym Voyager for a month now but have to say I am well impressed. Sym have just fitted a fuel injection system to this model which makes the running very smooth, the riding position is very comfortable especially with the option of your feet forward or down on the footwell. The weight is around 178 kilos which is fine for wheeling in and out of the garage and heavy enough to give you stability at speed. The scooter has ample storage space under the seat which does take an open... (read more)

I've owned one of these now for 2 years, and in all I find it difficult to fault this bike. It is reasonably quick (it will hit just over 80 MPH, and accelerates at around the same rate as a sporty 2 litre car), and mine gives me a reliable 90+MPG. Handling is also good.
Safety features are excellent, with disk brakes front and rear with a linked braking system as well as outstanding lighting (twin headlamp up front as well as twin fog lamps, and high visibility LED array at the rear.) The... (read more)

The Sym GTS 250 is a comfortable, reliable and good looking scooter. I have now covered 8000 km and the only thing I've needed to have fixed (under warranty) was a failed flasher/indicator unit. There is a slight flat spot in it's power delivery between 40 and 50 m.p.h, however its acceleration outside these speeds is reasonably brisk. It's performance at higher speeds is excellent, being able to cruise at 70+ mph with remarkable ease baring in mind it's only a 250. I average about 62 mpg,... (read more)

This scooter is excellent value for money. It has pretty good performance for such a heavy scooter but probably wouldn't beat other 250cc scooters off the mark because if its weight. The storage space is excellent and can fit a helmet plus other things under the seat. The lighting is fantastic and greatly improves your chances of being seen on the road. It's very comfortable for long trips. I commute to work 50kms each way/day. 25km freeway at 100km/hr and 25 km in heavy traffic with lots... (read more)
