Why Choose a SYM Motorbike?

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.

These Chinese bikes are very poor quality with very easy to break brittle plastic parts and rubbish metal parts with bolts that work their way out on their own. Any maintenance attempts just results in more broken parts. My bike is only 4 years old and falling apart around me. The performance is ridiculously slow and regulated to a maximum speed of 27 MPH. I wouldn't have thought these bikes would pass the quality control or import regulations required when being imported into the UK.
I know it will not pass it's second MOT as it is. Looks like it will go for salvage already !
