OKokie. Let me start the ball. I just got my New auto gear bike.

I think you all may not have heard much about it but i did some research about b4 I bought it first hand at 5.5k.

 

200cc 4-stroke Liquid cool CVT SOHC single cylinder engine and transmission.

SOrt of like very simliar design of engine for X9 and VXR200 Runner.

 

under seat space, can only put on a standard helmet and a smaller helmet (Half cap). but still got plenty of spaces in under seat compartment.

 

Fuel comsumption: to be update, still running in for 1000km. Havn't hit 100km yet.

 

 

My plate: FY 1* A (Nice number with no extra charge)

 

Run-in speed: below 60km/h for 1000km (FU*king sian, almost fall asleep and all vespa overtake me!)

 

First change of engine oil, transmission oil at 300km but subsequent change at 1000km and 3000km.

 

Remark: I just found out that it has the same problem like X9. Loose screw, and lucky only one that hold the rear mudguard. Had to go back and get another screw and nut.

For the loose screw problem, from engineering point of view, perhaps you may like to try using a spring washer as it will prevent the screw from getting loose due to vibrations. Hope it helps to solve your problem hee hee

Life is full of ups and down, I call it roller coaster ride.

When you are going up, you will have all the anticipation of fun and trill and get to see all the nice scenery. But when you sense that it is going down, you will wish it would stay there forever but the thruth is its not possible.

Before you know it, you are on the way down and only thing one can do is

hold on tight to yourself. If cannot take it let it out by shouting.

The higher you went, the longer the sufferings.

But when you are at the bottom already, you will try to think of those nice moments up there again. But at the same time fear the coming down part.

Some things are, we know it yet we still go and try it.

Till the moment we are off the roller coaster on the platform, some people suffer and puke while some are enjoying the process and laughing to their joy.

UpZ. Bo Lang riding joyride. Lonely leh :weep:

It seem like my tire are like same size as VXR but belt like X9.

Tai Hin told me that this joyride200 is the make of Hyundai and Sanyang. They copy the design from both VXR, X9 and Alantic. Then come out with this Joyride.

Abit of good stuffs from these three bikes but does it actually good? :confused:

 

This I got to find out. I saw a couple of Joyride150 on the road but none are 200. Please, if you are riding a SYM, PLease comment on your bike. ANything will do! :cheer:

Dear Cupnoodle,

 

Performance wise is definitely inferior compare to X9 Evo or VXR in term of speed and power.

 

Joyride: 18hp/8000rpm due to 171.8cc (SYM)

X9: 21hp/8500rpm of 198cc leader engine (Piaggio)

VXR: 21ps/8500rpm of 198cc (Gilera)

 

Reliability: Largely depend on rider how to maintain CVT bike. These kind of bike are prone to wear and tear if not maintain properly

 

Joyride: Parts manufacture in Taiwan under Sanyang and Hyundai technology. At the moment, the bike is still very new in the market and quite a few joyride 150 on the road for 2-3years liao. No complaint ever heard of SYM.

 

X9: Screws loosen due to long distance travel, side mirror crack after a few weeks not riding X9. Basically, only accessories with minor fault.

 

VXR: Best recommended bike on par with X9. Regular maintanence as are normal CVT bike.

 

Finanically:

 

SYM: Cheaper then piaggio and Gilera if compare with original parts. Using the same belt (Malossi etc...) with VXR and same tire (pilot sport etc...) with VXR.

 

For CVT bike, always best to buy new bike as you are the owner and able to maintain the engine and CVT. If you compare a CVT bike (Skipper etc...) with RXZ 125cc, the maintanence is alot more important for CVT Bike.

 

Fuel comsumption: I hope to get more inputs of model.

SYM Joyride200: 26-28km/L 98 unleaded

 

Engine oil: Castrol R4

 

Final remark: My joyride definitely worth the $, top class comfort, silence engine, mininal vibration, large storage space, very stable suspension when corner. :thumb:

Oh yeah,

There is no need to service every months. 1st change of 4T and gear oil in 300km for new bike. 2nd change at 1000km. Subsquent change at evey 3000km. Belt change at first 1000 or 3000km. I think? I will go back and get my manual and scan and post it here. :smile:

Your wife love it? My wife fall asleep on it! Every morning I ride her to work. She sometime sleep during the journey. I keep saying it dangerous if you falls asleep but she says your bike too comfortable liao. :cheeky:

 

Most of my friends whom didn't like to be pillon, now they often ask me to bring them here or there or meet them there and can send them home later. :smile:

 

"Made in Taiwan" Cheap or not?

 

How much you get for your 2nd hand joyride? :confused:

Can anyone help me by telling me where shops or who can I contact to view a 2nd hand Joyride? Thanks a lot in advance 1st!

i actually kinda accidently found the bike.actually the only thing i was looking for was the price(money hard to come by nowadays) and storage space.was going to settle for the runner sp and then i stumbled upon this bike.maybe u can try Ban Hon(AMK) or CSTK at changi road.Ban Hon is the authorised distributor and CSTK was the ex-distributor.can juz try ur luck.
