In conjunction with the launch of the 2018 SYM VF3i 183 cc supercub, SYM Malaysia also launched the 2018 SYM CRUiSYM 250i and 2018 SYM Jet 14 scooters. The CRUiSYM 250i comes in two versions, the standard model and the Special Edition, priced at RM20,021 and RM20,339, respectively, while the Jet 14 retails for RM7,089, with all prices including GST, but excluding road tax, insurance and registration.

The CRUiSYM’s Euro-4 compliant liquid-cooled single-cylinder displaces 249 cc and produces 21.1 hp at 7,500 rpm and 23.5 Nm of torque at 5,500 rpm. No lightweight at 196 kg with a 12-litre fuel tank, the CRUiSYM 250 delivers its power via a CVT gearbox, as is typical of scooters.

Under the seat is found storage for two full-face helmets, and inside a cubby-hole in the front cowl is a 12-volt power socket for charging electronics. Braking on the 250i is with hydraulic discs, the front being a 260 mm diameter unit, and the rear measures 240 mm, with front-wheel ABS as standard.

Fuel for the 250i is carried inside a 12-litre tank and it rolls on a 14-inch front and 13-inch rear wheel. There are three colour choices for the CRUiSYM 250i – Black, White and Red – and availability at authorised SYM dealers in Malaysia is from next week.

Meanwhile, in the 125 cc scooter class, SYM Malaysia has launched the Jet 14, designed to cater for the urban commuter looking for affordable daily transport over short distances. The Jet 14 comes with a 124.6 cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine that is Euro-4 compliant and produces 10 hp at 8,500 rpm and 9.2 Nm of torque at 7,000 rpm.

With a rated top speed of 110 km/h, the Jet 14 has a 7.5-litre fuel capacity and weighs 128 kg. Braking is with a hydraulic disc in front and drum brake at the rear, with wheel sizing being equal at both ends of the Jet 14 at 14-inches.

The Jet 14 comes with twin halogen headlights, and LED tailights, with space under the seat for one full-face helmet. The flat floor panel makes mounting the Jet 14 easy, especially for riders wearing a skirt and the seat height is a low 771 mm.

There are three colour options for the 2018 SYM Jet 14 – Red, Blue and White. Availability of the Jet 14 is from May at authorised SYM dealers across Malaysia.
