Post by Johncas » Thu Aug 17, 2017 12:56 am

Ok so got my classic Honda cub nice early one but dont use it every day it's in mint condition but Sym do the Symba it's a copy of the honda cyb 100cc engine looks exactly the same I know sym made hondas cubs under licence then when that ended they brought out there own version has anyone riden a symba is the performance as good a a cub the one im looking at is brand new as you cant get a new honda super cub in UK any more unless it's a 2nd hand import from japan

I would be using it for commuting to work but how good are the cubs for long distance touring in the UK used to have a 125cc scooter and did 100 miles in a day one it once

Put "symba" in the search box on here. There are several threads on the little Sym.

Do some research on the spares situation before doing a deal on one. That's my only advice. 8-)

agreed, buy a second cub/innova for your daily work.
cubs will do 100 miles per day easily. Newt did 1,000 miles in 24 hours a couple of years ago so no worries there.

If you want to spend that sort of money then you can't go wrong carefully choosing a good second hand C90!

I bought a Sym Symba in the USA almost 2 years ago now.

I also own a Rider's Super Cub here in the UK.

The difference in quality between the Sym and Rider's is quite different, i.e. the Sym is far better made.

I'd go for a Symba if you could find one at a reasonable price in the UK but they are normally priced around £1400~1500.

I found it rode very well indeed but never tried to see what it would do top end.
