Why choose SYM?

Sanyang Motors (SYM), Taiwan’s first motorcycle manufacturer, initially started life as a bicycle lights company in 1954.

However, in 1962 SYM joined forces with Honda Motor Japan and began producing 50cc, 150cc and 160cc motorcycles. The relationship between the two grew from there and by 1994 SYM had produced more than five million motorcycles and in the following year was awarded Outstanding Industrial Automation Manufacturer award.

Modern day SYM

In 2003 all SYM motorcycles and scooters under 125cc were fitted with the brand’s “Engine of life’ slogan, and featured ceramic coated cylinders and came with a lifetime warranty.

Taiwan then the world

In 2006 the company began to export its motorcycles, making SYM not only a household name in the Taiwanese scooter market but a presence in markets around the world as well.

SYM SYMPHONY ST 125
Bought brand new bike, 5 years warranty, good value on paper. Sym does not have a good distribution chain and the Sym official dealer I bought is lacking professional... Bought brand new bike, 5 years warranty, good value on paper. Sym does not have a good distribution chain and the Sym official dealer I bought is lacking professional knowledge and have poor general managing capability. As a result, for a problem with the engine on idle (it was switching off or kept high RPM) plus excessive consumption (15 miles/litre) I had to return the bike for 4 times. Now with replaced carburetor is not perfect but acceptable (does not have linear acceleration around 5000 RPM). Current consumption 17.5 miles/l (expected 21 miles/l) is poor but not enough to return to the garage... ah forgot to mention that after four (4) months I haven't received DVLA papers ! The dealer made initial mistake and did not yet manage to sort-it out.
