SYM Citycom 300i Review

by Chris Neely
(Santa Barbara, CA.)

I am now riding the Citycom 300i and find it to be a real pleasure! The ride is very comfortable with the 16" tires, the engine is smooth and powerful - I have ridden it for a few long trips (100, 200 mi.) and loved it!

Got it up to a sustained 75 mph (gps - plugged into the handy 12v outlet) for 45 minutes. Around town it is very easy to handle - the centered rear disc makes braking quickly a safe, assured stop.

Plenty of storage under the seat. I have over 3000 mi. on this bike and no regrets.

The only things I don't like about the bike are not the bike itself, but the accessories that came with it. The rear rack and luggage box were well made, but did not go with the lines of the bike and tended to block the taillight/ brakelight. The bigger windshield, while very strong and solid and clear, tends to give the steering excess movement at higher speeds (I have gotten this bike up to 85 mph on a long level run).

Overall, I would agree with most Citycom riders - "best bike ever!"

Battery Tender Junior in package

A battery tender like the Battery Tender Jr. can make all the difference in whether your scooter will start right up each spring, after being stored for months.

Just about every scooter owner needs to have a battery tender, sometimes called a trickle charger. Unless you are lucky enough to live in a climate where you can ride all year long, chances are your scooter will be put on ice, figuratively-speaking, for at least a couple months every winter.

One of the key steps in winterizing a scooter is to protect your battery from draining during its "rest" period. This can – and will – happen if you leave your battery sitting untended in your cold scooter over the winter, even if it's in a garage or shed.

ATTENTION! I have had to delete the Scooter Forum for this site, unfortunately. Despite my best efforts, I could not adequately prevent daily attacks by hackers and spammers. Even though most of their posts did not go public, they still cluttered up my website host's server space, jeopardizing my account. I appreciate everyone's contributions over the past few years and I apologize for having to do this.

Wondering why your scooter question never got posted?

Chances are, there is a good reason. Did you...

If you "checked yes" on any of the points above, then I've deleted your post. Sorry, but I have standards. Feel free to re-submit, following the instructions I have everywhere on the site.

Also... all submissions have to be reviewed by me, and I am currently backlogged. Comments go live without approval, but still take 30 to 60 minutes to show up, so don't repost them, please.
