That hoop on the front of the rack looks as if it could cause a lot of pain! :lol:

The exhaust cover is a bit "blingy" and the headlight looks like it was added as an afterthought, and the kickstart seems rather like overkill, or does it have mega high compression?

There's a few Keeway Targets kicking around dealerships at the moment at a good price, doesn't have the classic looks though.

the target is a good looking machine, similar to the Pug Vox, a friend had a keeway last year and the build quality wasn't good on it.
Sym seem to be of a reasonable quality, apart from the mild steel exhausts on there scooters which seem to rust easily.

I'll bet that you can get spares for the Keeway Partner & Keeway target though. :)

yep, thats the worrying thing, now the symba isn't in the SYM uk line up, what would spares availability be like?? SYM scooter parts arn't hard to get hold of, but the Symba didnt sell in great numbers over here.

Unfortunately, they are ... :(

I'd have room in the garage for a Sym. I like them, and their build quality.

I won't unless things change drastically with their UK importers/distributors Their spares provision for current, and recent models is dire. Even the best selling ones are only sparsely covered. It's the same in Australia, apparently.

According to SteveW, Sym owners have found certain spares in mainland Europe and imported them themselves.

The Symba was only brought in for one year, and in very limited numbers. Other than parts that are compatible with Honda and Cub clones, I think that the spares provision will be virtually non-existent.

Sym is distributed by Moto GB with Hyosung and Daelim, you'd think it'd be a bit better really!

Yeah, you'd think ... mind you my personal experience with Hyosung hasn't been exactly brilliant either. :lol:
