    Anybody own or ride one of these? I am considering getting one instead of a small scooter. They are freeway legal, and top out at about 65 mph. They sell for about $3K And you can actually buy one for $3K, not the $5K that a bike like the TU250 costs OTD. They are based on the '70s Honda CB125 design, and are made in Taiwan.

    Check here for information. http://symforum.com/ I was pretty disappointed in the overall quality. This bike appears to be completely made in China, with very poor quality control. I suggest giving one a good going over, paying particular attention the the fit and finish. The one I looked at already had cracks in some of the rubber parts on the showroom floor. They do not seem to have nearly the same quality as SYMs other products.

    As good as honda, in fact they have been building honda under licence since the sixties.
    It's a modern hay version of the CB125 punched out to 150. SYM 's annual unit production is about 1 million units. They are the biggest. Since they do they put their name on the product, the fit and finish is the best.

    Cheers
