Featherweight

That appears to be a featherweight compared to the big Burgie and new BMW by approx 100# lighter in weight per those specs.

A picture would be nice but we wont see them in NA anyway....

Looks nice. I had a SYM HD200 which was a very good scooter.

There is a 400 Sym on the road, and the "looks" are very much in the Burgy mold.



Sym MaxSYM 400i ABS (above)
Down to the 15" F and 14" R wheels, pillion backrest, in-glovebox DC power outlet, and divided taillamps.



Sym MaxSYM 600i ABS


SYM Maxsym 600i

I did read somewhere that Sym had some tie-in with Honda so there is the possibility that, like Honda, they are prepared to use a common platform for both 400cc and 600cc engine sizes.

Hi,

Can anyone find a single official SYM website anywhere in the world that lists machine as available for sale?

Single cylinder?!

That'd be a first in this class to my knowledge.

Big vibes.. low power (compared to a twin).. it will be interesting to
see how smooth this engine can be. Most scooter buyers in this class
want "smooth".

I'm more interested in the Kymco MyRoad 700i, but this Sym will probably
be cheaper.

I get the impression that the 400i ABS is being released first!

There is currently a 600cc model Sym for sale but its this one:


SYM Quadlander 600LE Atv

As of this date it would seem that the sole appearance of the Maysym 600i ABS model has been at a show; 2011 EICMA.
2011 EICMA: Sym Maxsym 600 and Joymax 300

Quote:
Sym Maxsym 600i is basically a bigger version of the 400i, with bigger engine and standard ABS. Aesthetically it is just like the its little sister, and maintains all of the key features of the model: comfortable riding position (thanks to the huge saddle), huge loading capacity, sharp dual projection headlights, telescopic fork, great aerodynamic protection (thanks to the big windscreen) and 15″ front 14″ rear wheels fitted with 120/70 and 160/60 tyres respectively.

Just curious about that bio of yours. Burg(with trailer)??? Pics?

I pull a piggybacker behind my RT thats why I ask. As I age and weigh my options with a maxi, I wondered about a scoot pulling a trailer.

Thanks.

The big 500cc Kymco is a single. Does not interest me. I would rather have a twin.

I know.
The 700 isn't.

And the Sym obviously is (single), and that's what I meant by "that's a first".
I'm not aware of any other 600cc single cylinder scooter out there.

More important on a normal motorcycle then a scooter, IMHO.

Go to-
Carlex - Easy Trailer gallery webpage

View pictures 120, 232, 341.

An American equivalent of the Easy Trailer 830TA, is the 870 Lb. Capacity Utility Trailer, 40" X 49" from Harbor Freight. The US trailer usually rides on 8" wheels while Carlex picked the 12" size to suit Australian road conditions. Longchih builds them but some thirty years ago they were built in the US and sold by Northern Tools.

Many cut-down these trailers (I did) and extend the drawbar (tongue) to make it an easier and safer tow with a motorcycle. Home-built motorcycle trailer.


TS36 Towbar from Classic Industries of Yandina, is made for Suzuki Burgman 650 fitting.

While we are off topic talking about trailers, how about this one like vortexau's?

The Tagalong is indeed one often mentioned on the Delphi Forum for motorcycle-towed trailers. Seems that there are somethings like coupons, and special deals, available from Harbor Freight?

The LINK to Delphi Forum and other folks build accounts are in that earlier referenced Home Build page.

.................................................. .................................................. .................................................. ..................

The single wheel trailer variety (and again Delphi Forum has an occasional mention of a self-build single design running a torsion spring first built by a chap called: Scuba Dave.

.................................................. .................................................. .................................................. ..................

I carry items like Air Compressors, the Kayak, and maybe (to come) a 36v Lithium Mower, so my trailer has now become of the Box Trailer shape employing a modern wood-recycled & plastic material like that referenced here:
Wood-plastic composite

The consumer Raised Garden Beds & Sand Boxes products are size-compatible, with some minor cutting. Both Water & UV resistant while some come in natural wood colors.


(NB- Why not initiate a separate Scooter Trailer thread and let others contribute?)

I take it you haven't seen the Aprilia SRV 850? http://www.aprilia.com/en-US/Model/9.../Overview.aspx

Looked more like the Aprilia is aimed at the sport market vs. the commute/tour market which the Burgman is.
I'd love to see the MaxSym (either) since they do appear to be pointed at the Burgmans pretty solidly. If they show up in North America, I'll definitely take a look.
