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.

I don't know, I do here the RV can do 90 MPH. But then again, the only thing to consider is that it very likely has a very optimistic speedo, so maybe its more like 80-85 MPH, which is about the same as the Reflex 250.

But yea, the Downtown is probably a better overall scoot.
