The SYM Jet Euro targets the needs and concerns of young people who want a scooter that offers a sporty aesthetic, and a reliable way to travel short distances. The bike's 50cc, single-cylinder, four-valve engine offers 4.29 horsepower. That number isn't going to impress anyone looking for highway thrills, but it will appeal to parents who want to give their kids a safe way to get around town, without having to ask for a ride all the time.
The 2009 SYM Euro shares many features with other 50cc scooters in the SYM family. Like the 2009 Mio, it has a continuously variable transmission, telescopic fork front suspension, and twin sided swing arm rear suspension. It also has front hydraulic disc brakes, and rear drum brakes.
The big difference between the 2009 SYM Euro and other scooters made by SYM, is in its styling. While the SYM Mio fits the preferences of teenagers who feel cool riding scooters with vaguely hipster aesthetics, the SYM Euro has a sporty feel that will appeal to boys who like the idea that, one day, they might own the kinds of bikes that can compete in races.
The 2009 SYM Jet Euro's headlights are built directly into the scooter's body. Their sharp angles essentially replace the racing stripes that one frequently finds on high-performance cars. Splash a little mud on the front, and you could easily believe that it just came off a dirt track.
The SYM Jet Euro has a great look, but it also offers a comfortable ride. It has a sturdy wheelbase (50.2 inches), and comfortable seat height (30.5 inches), that typically matches the height of young teenagers.
The 2009 SYM Jet Euro won't appeal to every teenager, but it will grab the attentions of youngsters who need a convenient way to get around the neighborhood, while they envision themselves in the grip of fierce racing competitions. Luckily, it doesn't have enough speed or power to worry the parents of daredevils.
