But if its not, the Downtown is a fantastic scooter, everyone wants one! Or any of the other scoots available.
Sym is available at my Kymco dealership, but I don't see a model that would
fit me better then the Downtown, and I seriously doubt the RV's 23,4hp
engine would do 90mph Being a 250,6cc engine puts it in the same
tax/insurance category with the Downtown here, there's no ABS option available
etc.. anyways, I'm sure it's a great scoot but I like the Downtown better.

EDIT: Just checked, we also get the EVO version of that Sym scoot with 300cc and upgraded
stuff.. and it came in 6th out of 7 scooters in a group test in a local mag, behind the xciting 300
(5th). The Downtown won that review in every single part of the test.
