* Like its smaller brother, the NHT 200 has an adventure bike-inspired design with 19F/17R spoked wheels, a beaky front fairing, wide handlebars, a mini bash plate and engine crash bars. SYM have found a balance between classy looks and a rugged ‘do it all’ motorcycle design.
Just above the front beak is a stylish LED headlight arrangement, which gives the NHT a sharper and more aggressive look. On my evening excursions, the NHT’s LED headlight emitted a bright, wide and clean beam of light. (The tail light's an LED unit too.)
The NHT has a neat trick up its sleeve, in the form of a USB charge port—just the ticket for a millennial like me. It's right at the front of the fuel tank, so it's easy to get to for charging a phone or GPS. The LCD display is modern yet simple, and includes a tripmeter, odometer, clock, fuel level indicator and a gear indicator.
The NHT 200 is driven by a 183 cc single-cylinder fuel-injected motor. Although only 58 cc more than its smaller sibling, the NHT 200 feels way more competent—both on the open road, and in the slower stuff, too. It'll sit at a comfortable 120 km/h at 7,000 rpm, with 2,000 more revs to spare, but also effortlessly lug at under 3,000 when negotiating tight single track.
Thanks to its great balance and compliant suspension, the NHT 200 will soak up bumps as well as offer you a sporty ride. It's a willing companion for both the urban commute and the open road... but what about off-road?
Although only offering 140 mm of travel, a stiff setup makes up for the lack of travel—so light off-road duty is a doddle. The NHT holds its line on smooth gravel roads, the meerkat riding position feels natural, and the bike feels very nimble, too. In the tighter stuff, the high bars, tight turning circle and low revving motor enable you to ride with confidence.
