Is it just another scooter?
A scooter is a scooter is a scooter right? Well, for the most part, yes. But Taiwanese company SYM has been around from the 1950s and built up a reputation for quality over decades. On top of that the Sym Crox does have intelligent characteristics that make it stand out from the rest. By the way, its name is pronounced “cross”, not “crocs” or “sea rocks”.

Does it look good?
Are you blind?! Based solely on its looks, the Crox is an attractive option. Most scooters follow a similar design, or a complete lack of design. The Crox is a really handsome little scooter, with a purposeful, angry look to it. The best feature is the digital speedo with trip meter, fuel level and clock. It’s stylish and compact, yet displays all the info you need and looks futuristic and cool. It also means less clutter in front. The seat  lifts up as usual, and storage underneath is adequate for an open-face helmet.

How does it perform?
Well, like a normal scooter, with just a touch more. The suspension is noticeably harder and sportier than on the average scoot. This makes for a scooter that handles like a go-cart, as I discovered on a twisty road, going 115km/h downhill in the slipstream of a big SUV. The little Sym corners aggressively, with brakes that offer more stopping power than you need. If you don’t have a truck or SUV to “hide” behind, you will have to be content with an absolute maximum of an indicated 95km/h. Not bad for a 125c

With those hand guards and knobbly-looking tyres it looks like a dual-purpose scooter. It would definitely stack up in the top five best-looking scooters on sale. The sporty handlingiss a real surprise, as is the little front disc’s superb stopping power.

Final verdict
The Sym Crox is a fresh and attractive alternative to the normal scooter crowd. It looks good, has exceptional handling, and will stay in style.

This scooter is in excellent condition with only one owner from new has only has 600 miles on the clock
