Summing up the SYM Jet Euro X. (Every time I write that I laugh) I’m not entirely sure who the Jet is aimed at, I imagine it’s young males who like a sporty looking scooter. The two stroke motor certainly makes it fairly unique in the modern market and it does give it that fun two stroke sound. This scooter is certainly an option if you intend on tuning, as being a two stroke it’s much easier to make power gains. The problem I have is that it has some pretty stiff competition from SYMs own Mio100. Both bikes are about the same speed but the Mio is a four stroke so does slightly better gas mileage and doesn’t need expensive two stroke oil. Worse still, in New Zealand and Japan you can get a Suzuki Address 125 for less money; definitely the bike I’d buy.

By the way, if you haven’t figured it out yet…I’m not always entirely honest. So here begins the piss-taking of the name…What the hell is a Jet Euro X? Standing here looking at the scooter none of these words come to mind. Jet, well no, apart from the functionless air intakes it does not resemble a jet. Euro, sorry no again, it certainly doesn’t look remotely euro to me. Finally X, well I imagine they’re talking X as in extreme…ahh, yeah, no. The only thing extreme about the SYM is its extremely long name. Now what I see is scooter that is trying very hard to look racey but has ended up a little on the chunky side, so I’m thinking…SYM Tiger Moth Sumo G. Hmmm, I think that’s worse.
