That is my only negative to the SYH HD200. No kick starter. My Kymco People 150n has one. I have criticized the motorcycle industry for removing kick starters on almost every motorcycle. The only exception I can think of right now is some Royal Enfield Bullets. And most people don't agree with me on the motorcycles. But on a motorcycle you have the possibility of a push start. You aren't going to do that on a twist and go scooter.
I would suggest a yearly, or twice a year, removal and checking the battery in the SYM. It's an easy job. Remove it, check fluid level and add if needed, throw it on a trickle charger overnight, and reinstall.
One other nit pick is what you have to do to add coolant. Easy to check through a little cutout window to see the level in the coolant recovery tank. But hard to get to the fill cap and radiator cap. This should be an easy job.
