  • 1999 Launch: Our story began in 1999 as Bolwell Scoota.
  • Joint Venture Success: This year also marked our successful joint venture with Bolwell Corporation and the Black family.
  • Top Spot Achieved: Through this partnership, we rapidly ascended to become the leading scooter brand in Australia, fueled by the distribution of renowned brands like PGO and SYM Scootas
  • 2008 Transformation: A monumental change occurred in 2008 when the Black family assumed 100% ownership of our company, giving birth to Select Scootas (SYM Australia).

At SYM Australia, we take great pride in our extensive involvement with industry and government organisations. Our commitment to promoting scooter safety, industry growth, and rider advocacy is demonstrated by our active role in shaping the scooter industry in Australia, emphasizing our dedication to the well-being of riders and the industry’s overall health.
