2009 SYM Citycom Review


The 2009 SYM Citycom 300i allows riders to go where most scooters cannot. With its 405-pound curb weight and 20.6 horsepower, riders can feel comfortable taking the 2009 Citycom practically anywhere they would drive a car. This makes the SYM Citycom an excellent commuter vehicle for people who want to avoid the expense and frustration of owning a larger motor vehicle in the city.

The 2009 SYM Citycom has a single-cylinder, four-stroke, 300cc engine that gives it more power than the typical scooter. Its continuously variable transmission lets riders focus on where they are going, rather than on what gear they are in. Whether the rider is a 16-year-old who is still getting accustomed to driving, or an adult who has been traversing city streets for years, this scooter offers an exciting way to travel.

A large gas tank and excellent fuel efficiency also make the 2009 SYM Citycom a first-rate option for commuters. The Citycom's 94.1 mpg combined rating, and 2.6-gallon tank, means that riders only have to stop every 240 miles to refuel. Considering that the average person only needs to travel 10 to 15 miles to work or school, those who own the SYM Citycom can go weeks without stopping at a gas station.

SYM has a reputation for making scooters with cool aesthetics that appeal to young people, and the 2009 Citycom 300i does not deviate from this. It has built-in headlights, and a windshield that makes it look like a sophisticated ride option. Even teenagers zooming around on the 2009 SYM Citycom don't need to feel that they have been dropped to a lower social class, just because they don't have cars. The SYM Citycom has a look that should satisfy them, whether they're commuting to school in the morning, or hanging out with friends on the weekend.

Parents will be happy to see that the 2009 SYM Citycom has front and rear hydraulic disc brakes that can keep their kids safe in all driving conditions. By combining the needs of parents, with the concerns of teenagers, SYM has built an excellent commuter scooter that can appeal to a wide audience.
