Motorcycle parts for sym wolf classic for sale

     

Small bikes are a blast. They make me feel lượt thích a kid again, and that’s quite a feat these days. Perhaps it’s riding around at the peak of a machine’s ability without the fear of tickets or bodily harm, or in this case maybe it was riding a motorcycle that began production before I was born.My rejuvenation, so to lớn speak, arrived in the size of a 2014 SYM 150 Wolf Classic, kindly delivered to our offices by SYM’s Canadian distributor and Motorsports Canada Ltd. Owner, Michael Wells. His words, và I quote, were “Keep it as long as you’d like.” So I did, & then I kept it a little longer.

What’s in a Name?

*
For those not familiar with the SYM Motorcycle brand name, it’s a division of Sanyang Industry Co. Ltd. Of Taiwan. SYM began assembling motorcycles under licence from Honda in 1961 and, more significantly in our case, began assembling Honda’s CB125S overhead-cam single in 1969. When Honda terminated its contract with Sanyang in 2002, the assembly lines just kept on rolling. The bike we tested is essentially an updated 150 cc version of the original CB125S, sold under the SYM banner.

A Technological Tour de Force It Is Not

*
In regard to specs và components, let’s be frank, it’s not about high performance or cutting-edge technology. The Wolf Classic has less than 15 hp và weighs 120 kg, with a seat height of 760 mm; this motorcycle is as beginner-friendly & unintimidating as a xe đạp could be. The nguồn is adequate lớn keep you in the flow of traffic on all but super-slab surfaces, và fuel economy is a miserly 2.7 L/100 km – even with the throttle pinned from time to time. It’s still carbureted & fuelling is spot on, as were the clutch, shifter và gearbox. We could liken the design khổng lồ a smooth stone you might find on the shoreline: 40 years of rolling down SYM’s assembly lines have rounded off any objectionable protrusions on this bike’s character, performance & appearance. Well, almost. Other than the occasional false neutral at high rpm, the xe đạp we tested actually came with a pair of protrusions: small saddle bags that I was determined lớn remove. But there’s no argument with their functionality. As the SYM turned into a long-term fixture, so too did the effective little saddlebags.

Pin It to lớn Win It

The riding experience on the Wolf Classic is where you can make a strong argument for purchasing this small, modestly propelled & priced motorbike. For the sum of $2,999 plus freight, prep và taxes, you get a reliable and handsome motorcycle that makes a good commuter in the đô thị or on surface streets. The Wolf Classic skips along at 80 km/h with little issue, & on a slight downhill, she can be coaxed over 100 km/h. Even at that tốc độ the front disc brake with steel-braided line has no problem slowing down the fun. Ringing this bike’s neck is part of the enjoyment, as it is with most small bikes, và there’s little guilt associated thanks to lớn the engine’s tough, Nikasil-coated bore & proven components being more than capable of taking the flogging. Mind you, a more sedate approach khổng lồ riding suits the SYM best.

The Real Deal

There was great satisfaction to be found just putting along & taking in the passing scenery that I’d been blowing by in my oto or on more powerful bikes. How had I not noticed that half-covered 1968 Camaro rotting away next lớn the old barn? Okay, so maybe there are some things best left unseen, but the point is, you’ll have time to lớn look around. And while you’re moseying, you may also notice people pointing và staring at you on this café-esque throwback that never actually got thrown back or thrown away for that matter, just improved on since SYM started building these simple bikes all those years ago. So I guess you’d gọi it an authentic café. It does have two-position adjustable clip-ons, a kick-starter, fork gaiters & chrome analog gauges after all. Anyway, I decided that the oglers – and there were many – either saw something familiar or attractive about the SYM, with its classic, understated styling & eye-catching red on trắng livery, or I had something lodged in my teeth, which they could clearly identify owing to lớn the stupid grin I was wearing most of the time.

Such Sweet Sorrow

I spent more time with the SYM Wolf Classic than with any other bike over the 2014 riding season & had no desire to lớn return it even after the snow arrived. It became a trusted companion, never failing khổng lồ start or deliver me from point to point, regardless of the conditions. But more importantly, it made me feel lượt thích a kid every time I rode it. And that experience alone would be worth the price of admission, which is the same in Canada as it is south of the border for 2015, regardless of the exchange rate.
