“It cannot be upgraded with engine and tyres”

★★☆☆☆

written by LeahMacMillan on 24/10/2020

When comes to motorcycle you pay for what you get, you pay cheap and you end up with a regret. It's 4 years I have it and a few problems, the plastic trims it's very poor,cannot even fit larger tyres because of the rear frame,I tried to fit larger piston upgrading from 125 to 160 but the head finally would not take it and valves bent , unfortunately no headvalve it's available to upgrade this sym Symphony 125 cc.many do sale cylinder and piston 160cc 180 cc but no head valve ,therefore you will be waisting your money and time.the best I can do is to finally get rid of this bike,very poorly build.

Perhaps considering the manufacturer designed and produced the product based on many decades of knowledge of what works. Why would anyone wish to bastardise any vehicle and expect it to then work in balance is quite beyond me.

I have had all types and sizes of motorcycles since the 1960's including Honda, Sym etc, from my experiences having owned them myself, are every bit as respected by those whom are more interested in being objective on long term experiences of the operation of these vehicles and their capabilities.

“Most reliable vehicle I’ve ever known ”

★★★★★

written by xzCannon315 on 28/01/2018

Had 3 of these now never had a moments trouble travelled miles into mountains in middle of nowhere in Romania Italy Spain Switzerland find it great fun with excellent handling engines one of the best in the market bought my first one because of price but now I really trust these ,under seat storage along with shopping bag holder for floor makes ideal for trips to shop maintenance is simple brakes could be sharper but ok for a 125 engine eager to pull well even with 2 full size adults onboard will cruise comfortable economically at 55 mph after that it’s trying a bit but will do indicated 65mph switches all feel top quality mirrors good visability

“reliable dependable as c90”

★★★★★

written by LyricHarris on 20/07/2015

bought this scooter knowing sym are a good under dog type brand but to my surprise its the brand other brands should follow , when I ride it gives the impression its a real form of usable quality transport I was so confident of the quality sound and feel of it I have taken on motorway where it performed excellent keeping up with inside lane traffic at about 55mph constantly which doesn't sound that fast but ive had lots of motorbikes and scooters I feel this is one of the best performing 125 fourstoke scooters ive ridden cant recommend enough I also bmw 1200 motorcycle which im no where near as impressed with

“worth the money”

★★★★★

written by on 28/05/2011

Sym Symphony 125 Well this is my first scooter and i love it, I picked it before doing my CBT. Being 40 I didn't want somethign too pimped up or too small. I'm 5ft11 and feel ok on the scooter. When stationary on the road my left foot can touch the floor quite easily, while my leg remains straight. So the seat is at a reasonable height. It is really econimical with the petrol £5.00 fills it up, usually lasts me around 100km. Ride feels good. Easily keeps up with the traffic. DEspite what i will write below i do think it is a bargain Negatives,I have a large helmet, which cannot fit in the underseat storage. So my chain stays there. I would have though a built in immobiliser for the ignition and steering lock was standard these days, afraid not in this case. Therefore a chain is esential. Also it needs to be serviced every 3000km or 3 months if you want the wararanty to be valid. But these minor things should detract from the value for money and fun this scooter brings.

Hi,
I have the 150 model, as per built in immobiliser, the yellow switch inside the underseat storage act the same way. If I'm not mistaken, according to user manual, service should be done at 1000Km or 1 month interval

Hi All,
I too have a 150cc model, a 2010 to be exact. As stated previously there is an isolating switch under the seat which cuts out the battery and there is a steering lock on the ignition key position. I find the bike comfortable ( used mostly around town) and economical with really good brakes ( disc front & rear ). Wish I could get hold of a service manual so I could do all the maintenance myself. I also agree with previous comments about 1000km service intervals. Bee Mac
