Hanoi Motorbike Rental is one part of the larger Offroad Vietnam Adventure Travel, a company that offers premier outdoor adventures in Vietnam such as motorbiking, cycling, 4×4 and cruises in small groups. Unlike most of travel companies in Vietnam, we don’t offer classic tours in large groups by bus. This website focuses on the rental business of Honda dirt bikes, road bikes, scooters from 100cc to 250cc for your guided or unguided motorbike tours through Vietnam.
Our motorbike rental business was founded in late 2006 by two local motorcycle riders who realized an increasing demand of riders from allover the world about a special way of exploring Vietnam on two wheels. When we started our business, Russian Minsk 2-stroke 125cc was the only choice. However, Russian Minsk was under-powered, unreliable and used lots of fuel (5-6l/100km). We thought time for this “iron buffalo” was over and there should be a better choice. Therefore, we opted out 4-stroke Japanese Honda larger road and dirt motorbikes from 125 to 250cc. We own Honda bikes for many years. Every Vietnamese knows that this is the best choice because parts are easy, bikes are reliable and one thing says it all: “Honda” means “motorbike” in Vietnamese!
DIRT BIKES, ROAD BIKES, SCOOTERS MODELS
There are currently many shops and companies offering motorbike tours and rental. The fact is most tourists ride a cheap Chinese 110cc called Win which was well cheated as Honda Win. This bike is horrible and very unreliable. Even local Vietnamese people didn’t buy or use this bike shortly after it was introduced in early 2000’s. Honda Astra PT Indonesia stopped manufacturing this model in early 2000’s and Chinese companies started making it because it’s small and easy to copy. Hanoi Motorbike Rental is in no way recommend or consider this Chinese copy a touring bike. Our smallest touring bike is 125cc. We use only one brand: Honda due to part availability and reliability. For more information why you shouldn’t ride a Chinese Win, follow this link.
All bikes provided are Japanese Honda brand, no Chinese fakes or other brands. As a note, Honda doesn’t sponsor our business.
