An 80 year olds impression NEW
by: Roger

I recently purchased my 2008 SYM RV 250 from a private owner. His pride in this scooter was evident. He delivered it to me with a full tank of gas and gave it a love pat when he said goodbye. It is in excellent condition with only 4000 total miles on the odometer. It has an excellent factory paint job, as good as any I have ever seen. The weight difference, between it and my Honda Elite-80, was immediately obvious. However it is still less than half the weight of the Harley Dresser I rode in 1976. I give it an Excellent.helium

SYM RV 250
by: Anonymous

I've got almost 4000 miles on my rv 250. It's great. very steady on the road. brakes are strong and smooth. got a new tall windshield for it. really cuts the wind off. i avg about 60 mpg. Since I'm tall, i took off the back support and can sit back further. very comfy. next thing i gonna do is get some new mirrors on it so i can see dirctly behind me better. All in all, a superior ride. very comfortable and i think its going to be very durable. I guess my only concern is that i need a new rear tire. the current one is just about worn out with only 4000 miles.

Great Review, Ron!
by: Kathi

Hey Ron... Great review! I really enjoyed reading your likes and dislikes. I think comfort and sway are 2 things that are most difficult for new scooter riders to get used to. Having the right equipment... and knowing your limits are extremely important. Have fun scootin'!

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.

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...
