    Default Advice needed - Getting a 2B Scooter



    Gonna sell my car. *sob*
    Been away from SG riding scene for nearly 10 years and is intending to return with a scooter.
    Got some refresher riding experience in overseas so worry not.
    Important question is which 2B scooter to buy?

    Am considering SYM, Kymco downtown 200i, Suzuki Burgman 200 ABS.
    Key considerations:
    - Cost
    - Low maintenance cost
    - Reliability

    Basically just need a hassle free transport.
    What do you say my friend?
    If you have some other scooter in mind kindly share too.

    Have you considered the Yamaha NMAX 155 ABS? I'm looking to get a scooter as a 2nd bike and will most probably be going for the NMAX. Engine capacity is slightly lower @ 155cc but should be sufficient for SG roads. OTR price is <$10k at current COE prices. Hong Leong is out of stock until the end of the month though.

    Good luck in your search!

    Thanks for the suggestion.
    I tried bidding $2 for COE today but was outbid.
    The magic hand came into operation at the last min and the price soar to $2,500
    Nevertheless, it's a $1400 decease.

    For everyone's info, i made some calls and visited Alexandra motor shops for a while
    Have my eyes on SYM Joyride 200 as Ban Hock Hin sales man said this is a MAXI scooter (maxi = bigger = premium)
    Called and checked for SYM Joyride 200:
    Bike production - no stocks for scooter, call next week (no sincerity to make business, don't even quote)
    Ban Hock Hin - $6300 (without COE, insurance)
    New Southern Motor - $9360 (OTR)
    Unique Motorsports - $9800 (OTR)
    United Cycles LLP - $9500 (OTR)

    BTW was told the cheapest scooter now is Honda Vestro (something like that), $8400 OTR
