If you check with Transport Canada's list of motorcycles that can be admitted to Canada, SYM is not on that list. Transport Canada relies on information supplied by the manufacturer that a vehicle can be made compliant with Canadian safety rules before it will allow a vehicle to be imported. Even if you brought a SYM over the Border and paid the duty, the vehicle would still have to be returned to the US. The really crazy part about all this is that there were some SYM's that were imported into Canada from the US by SYM and modified to meet Canadian safety standards and sold legally in Canada. I have one of those bikes. It still has the US DOT stickers on it, but it was bought new at a Canadian SYM dealer with the Canadian warranty. So SYM can do it; but you and I can't.
