I have been noticing a neighbor riding a Sym Symba around my office recently. It is a Honda Cub or Passport clone, 110 cc with a four speed transmission with an automatic clutch.
My friend and Cannonball competitor, Binh, rode one from his home in San Jose, California to the Arctic Circle in Alaska a few years ago. A couple are riding one around the world as we speak.
So, today I rode my bicycle to work and noticed the owner getting on to go to his work. I stopped to say hello. His name was Jamal and he was very friendly once he understood that I was a scooter riding neighbor. I asked if I could try it out some day and he agreed.
It is very similar to the Suzuki FB100 I had in Bermuda in the early 1990's. That one had a three speed. I bought it for $800. and sold it for $450. three years later, so it was very economical to own.
I would like to own one to add to my stable but not right now.
