We will get straight to the point based on the current Vietnamese conditions. There is no lie and no nonsense answer.
Vietnam Motorbiking Experience Requirement
If you are intermediate or experienced riders who are good with manual clutch bikes then read on. On the other hand, if you are beginners who never ride a motorbike before then you need to do a riding lesson or just log out. This may sound rude but that’s how we care about your safety. Honestly, we need business and money but also want things clear. Many shops may not tell you the way we are doing! Reasons will be explained below.
Vietnam is really not a place to start your motorbike riding due to busy and scary traffic. Nearly 30 people die on the road everyday and about 80% is from accidents involving motorbikes, so motorbike riding experience is required. Safety should be on top of everything. We in fact don’t encourage beginners to experience Vietnam on two wheels! It’s hard to satisfy everyone because people have different expectations and nobody is perfect.
Planning Before You Ride
Plan carefully, get details of the areas you are visiting, learn how to manage by yourselves and with our assistance you would have a great trip. This means you must be very dependent.
Many riders heard conflicting things about Vietnam motorbike driving license and insurance when looking for motorbike rental in Vietnam. It’s not as difficult as you probably know, just follow the links and find out solutions.

Vietnam Motorbike Rental (Unguided Motorbike Tours)
To make sure you have bike(s) when you come, we would like to have bikes booked and paid. If you wait until you arrive in Hanoi then there is no guarantee that the bikes you want are available.
Hiring a motorbike and explore Vietnam on your own is probably the cheapest way. You need to manage and handle things on your own, from bike service, maintenance to finding roads, restaurants and hotels. Getting lost is likely but as many said that’s also part of an adventure! If you want to save money but are not able to handle things, in the end, you loose money!
We have been providing near new or latest models of scooters in Hanoi. Only genuine Honda products, no other brands or Chinese fakes. Please take these details into account when you decide which bike to hire, ask about bike model and year of manufacturing and don’t just look at prices. Our rates are not the cheapest but competitive and the quality is among the best.
Why we use Honda motorbikes only?
To date, Vietnam Motorbike Rental is still the only company that provides genuine Honda bikes from 100cc to 250cc in Hanoi. We don’t use Chinese motorbikes or other brands. Our motorbike fleet includes the latest 100-125cc semi-automatic or fully automatic scooters, latest 125cc manual touring bikes or dirt bikes and the older but still reliable Honda XR250. You would wonder why? Here are a few:
– Honda means “motorbike” in Vietnamese, as much as Google means “search”;
– Parts and repair shops for Honda motorbike are everywhere in the country, as plentiful as restaurants and hotels on the road. There are over 700 Honda authorized dealer shops and countless repair shops around Vietnam;
– Honda bikes are cheap on fuel.
Motorbike & Tour Guide Hire (Semi-Guided Motorbike Tours) In Hanoi
Apart from just motorbike hire, Vietnam Motorbike Rental also assists in providing a guide to get you into the right direction and put you in safe hands. The guide is 4-in-1: guide/leader/mechanic/translator. He adds a lot more value to the whole experience of your motorbike tour in Vietnam. He knows many secret roads that you can’t be able to find in maps or by yourself. You choose what to eat and where to stay on the road. In the end, you have total flexibility and at your own pace.
Fully Guided Motorbike Tours Through Vietnam From Hanoi
If budget allows, stretch your spending a bit and book a fully guided and supported motorbike tour. This is the best way to ride safely in Vietnam. You just enjoy your vacation while we do the rest. In fact, this is the cheapest way to ride a lesser-known Vietnam. Our guides are local Vietnamese who have been riding bikes for years and have so many friends on the road. They know Vietnam as good as the back of their hands and you never miss a bit of Vietnam. We will select the best fresh food and most comfy hotels wherever we ride. It’s not worth to save some money in exchange for bad services on the road, especially after many riding hours!
