It seems a challenge that launched by the Taiwanese house to the giants such as BMW and Kymco, in fact what until last year was just a prototype, an idea, to carve out a space in the market of Maxi Scooters, is became a reality, Sym Maxsym TL was officially presented at EICMA 2018 and this time it is ready to make its debut in the streets of the world. In dealerships you will find it already starting next year and the characteristics seem very little changed compared to the model anticipated the previous year.
The Sym Maxsym TL has adopted some refinements regarding the equipment and the appearance of the bodywork but as regards the engine was confirmed the parallel twin 465 cmq, from 39.5 hp to 7 thousand laps, a maximum torque of 41.2 Nm at 5,000 rpm and liquid-cooled. A small detail is certainly also the position of the same engine that was precisely mounted in the middle of the platform in order to share the weight halfway between front and rear, a real find to level dynamic that will offer a different guide compared to other competitors. In addition to this we must also mention the wet clutch, the balancing countershaft to reduce vibrations at low revs and the final chain drive.
But the endowments do not end here, in fact the suspension section is definitely high, which includes an upside-down fork along with an adjustable mono equipped with a six-link progressive linkage that connects it to the frame. According to Sym, these solutions have been purposely adopted to guarantee a stable and comfortable ride both in the ruined asphalt and in the sporty driving, we also add a 1555mm wheelbase and a 80cm height saddle.
Now we are also talking about safety, during the braking the Sym Maxsym TL will be supported by a double 275 mm front disc with radial and a rear diameter of the same diameter. 15-inch wheels with 120/70 and 160/60 tires complete the road safety section, in addition to this, however, in the Maxsym we find a saddle pad that allows you to hold a full-face helmet and a 13-liter tank.
The Taiwanese house has obviously thought about a really competitive starting price, since it will have to conquer a slice of a market that has not yet been explored, we will only find out with the first exit in dealerships. This and many other innovations of course await the passionate in 2019, that of Sym Maxsym TL is only one of the most interesting because it is the first time that the motorcycle company faces a new market full of surprises.
