CruiSYM 300
« on: March 24, 2018, 12:18:12 PM »
I have just joined this forum. I am considering buying a Cruisym300. I have visited several SYM dealers and sat on the bike in question, but, no one will offer a test ride. One dealer contacted SYM UK and was told no demo bikes available, I am a mature owner and currently ride a Silverwing 600 (my second one) I average 10,000mls a year and ride all year round. I was looking for a second bike as I recently got rid of my Burgman 400 that was seventeen years old. I always do my own servicing.I wondered if any one has a CruiSYM300 and could comment on, reliability, comfort etc. any information would be helpful

we don't see the CruiSYM here in the colonies, but where I live you can't get test rides from dealers either. Any brand dealer.

We can usually get a test ride around here, but you break it you buy it pretty much (or fix it like new).
Closest thing we get to the Cruissym is the Citycom.  Looks like a similar if not the same motor but different lay out.
Personally I'd love to try that too, but the local dealer doesn't stock it & won't order one without a deposit..good towards stuff at his store if ya don't buy it, but still $$.

I have found a dealer that has a pre registered SYM 300i and is going to let me have a test ride. He is thirty miles away but, because bike is pre  registered it is offered at a thousand pounds less than unregistered bikes. It is still new with no mileage.

Went for my test ride,as arranged, whoever I spoke. to on the phone had not told service dept to get bike ready, so no test ride. Dealer is thirty miles away. Not too upset as a lovely day and a nice ride. I did test ride a Burgman200, but much too small for me, although great engine. They will arrange another date for test ride, as they knw I have the cash.

After much thought, and sitting on a cruiSYM 300 I have placed an order for one today. It will take a couple of weeks before i can take delivery. If any one is interested knowing how it performs, or my opinions of it  I will be happy to let them know

Sylar,another newbie here and picking mine up tomorrow so will report back.
The bike I tried was three months old and had done nearly 5000 kms.
It had some scratches here and there and I discovered afterwards it was a pizza delivery bike  ::)
Anyway the ride was good,front brake juddered so I guessed hard usage but a very comfortable ride,brisk,handled well,loads of room for two big ‘ens and seemed to tick all the boxes,finish seemed ok,cigar lighter plus usb in the glovebox,nice space under the seat which had a good stay strut and an automatic light in the compartment.Five year guarantee seems a good idea or 100,000 kms so will wait and see.

Should have said,chose a new one!!
They wanted only €500 less than the new price so seemed a no brainer!

Hi Sylar,
Well I live in the Alentejo in Portugal,halfway between Lisbon and the Algarve.
Born in London and did a lot of despatch riding there.Calmer life now retired and no filtering needed in our traffic light corner of the world.
The Portuguese are crazy drivers though!

I took delivery of my Cruisym300 on Wednesday 16/5/18. Having done 170 kilometers  up to now. First impressions are good, I think  i made a good buy. Engine is Lively and responsive, riding position is excellent being able to see just over the screen. One drawback, when putting fuel in it takes ages very very slow filler.looking forward to running it in properly, keeping below 50mph for now.

Now Saturday 26/5/18. Been riding most days to "Run" everything in. Mileage now at 750km. Phoned the dealer to arrange first 1000km service, said would ring me back to arrange, two hours later no call. Is it any wonder I never use dealers for servicing. All that needs doing is, engine oil change, final drive oil change, it doesn't even have an oil filter. It would take me about an hour to do both. Quoted price for this 1000km service is £125

I suspect there should be a valve check in there too Sy.
Doubtless not the end of the world, but should be done.
