SYM GTS 250i, 251cc, This is a 2008 model with 24,793kms on the clock. It has partial service history and will come with a New MOT, Slicing through motorway traffic on the Sym GTS250 you soon realize that you might have the best of both worlds here; the manoeuvrability of a scooter with the capacity of well, clearly not a car but certainly more than a motorbike normally allows. The GTS is a swoopy-looking scooter with generous lines and capacious bodywork that not only tucks the running gear out of sight, but hides an underseat boot sufficiently roomy to swallow laptop, camera, notebooks and more. You will also like the boot light and hydraulic strut, which holds the seat up while you fossick about. The 250cc engine capacity means you need a bike licence, but it also accesses the open road and longer-distance touring if you're feeling adventurous. The GTS will cruise at 100 or more if you don't keep a sharp eye on the speedo, though rapid acceleration is rather compromised by the relaxed pick-up from the Continuously Variable auto Transmission (CVT), which also doesn't let you step down a gear for stronger pull. Back round town you'll find this scooter tall. Shorter folk would hop off the seat at stops, not a problem given a scooter's step-through architecture. Meanwhile its length helps impart a surety to the handling that's much appreciated on our bumpy back roads where the 13-inch wheels deliver more confidence over lumps and potholes than smaller-wheeled competitors like Vespa's 300GTS. That confidence continues round town, where the GTS feels well balanced and proved easy to wield thanks to the broad handlebar spread and nicely balanced weight. Park it up there's both a centre and side stand whip your cellphone out of the lockable cubby in the fairing, your bag from under the seat and you're good to go.
