Taiwanese bike builder SYM has just unveiled two new 125cc models at INTERMOT in Cologne – perfect, if you’re looking for your first bike on a budget.
In essence, the road-oriented SYM-NH X and adventure styled SYM-NH T are very similar machines – aside from styling. They share suspension, chassis and equipment, including a 124cc air-cooled single-cylinder four-stroke engine, which kicks out just over 10bhp at 8,500 rpm and peak torque of at 9.5Nm at 6,500rpm. There’s also a digital dash with USB port and a 10.3litre tank on both models.
The standard NH X comes with 17-inch cast wheels from and rear, a stacked double headlight, room for pillion, and a seat height of 787 mm. While the adventure-inspired NH T comes with 19-inch front and 17-inch rear wire spoke wheels, a frame-fixed front panel with an embedded headlight (Suzuki DR-style), a 10.3litre tank and a seat height of 818mm.
The new bikes from SYM are set to make it to market at the beginning of 2019, but at this stage, there’s been no news on prices. Expect them to be fairly affordably priced though.
