Just thought I'd mention my other scooter. I bought this before my Swing and still love it. It is one of the best made scoots out there. It may not sound like much at 174cc but it has plenty of power. I easily rode it on Vermont highways at 70 - 75 mph, but I would not recommend it for most highways. It's too light and could get battered by drafts from other vehicles on busier routes. Besides, the lightness is where it excells. It is fantastic on the twisty turnny mountain roads of Vermont and a better turner than the Swing in such conditions. In fact, that was the only learning curve I had when I bought the Swing was how much more lead time I had to prepare for to turn. So if such a ride is something you're interested in, I sincerely recommend the SYM HD200. That's the ride that won the Scooter Cannonball Run two years in a row. I have over 20,000 miles on mine now and not one mechanical problem ever.

I also have a Chinese scooter that I bought for my wife but I enjoy riding it occasionally too. It's a Jonway 250cc and it does great on twists and turns too. It's very agile.

I haven't had it on the interstate and probably wouldn't, although it can get up to 70mph pretty easily.

I rode it to work one day when the Swing was in the shop and it did very well. Most of my route is 55mph highway. It got 89mpg on that trip, which makes it a temptation to drive more often.

i bought a sym 250 off the honda lot with 900 mi on it last summer. it had been traded in on a goldwing by somebody. also runs very well tho' i only get 75 to 86 mpg. less engine revs/highway speed than my reflex. seat not as comfortable as the reflex but otherwise an excellently built machine. been riding it after taking the swing shield in to have it cut down about a few inches. the givi was just too tall. also, the sym doesn't have a bigger after-market windshield listed (according to the dealer; haven't contacted givi yet). gonna keep 'em both. 74000 mi on the swing and now about 6000 on the sym. wish we had warmer weather in michigan.

I have the GIVI 105 windshield on my HD200. That's the one for the Ruckus but it works fine.

I have heard nice things about the SYM bikes and they may even come out with a 600cc bike soon. I sure would love to get 80 mpg in times like this too.
