To know which motorbike/scooter is the best for you, please watch the below video.
50cc Scooters, No Licence Required
This is the smallest bikes you can hire in Hanoi. The good thing is you don’t need any licence to ride them. However, they are pretty small and can only accommodate one person. In addition, due to the small engine displacement, the power is pretty slow but for city traffic, who cares?
Due to the crazy prices of Japanese Honda 50cc scooters (2,000 – 3,000$US each), we only provide Taiwanese and Vietnamese brands. They are at our customers’ request, not our official service. As a promise, we will service them in the best condition possible and the feedback from our customers is very positive.
110-125cc Fully Automatic Scooters
In general, this is the easiest option for beginners. However, be careful because there is no way you can control the transmission due to the automatic system. Take it easy and you will be fine.

110cc Semi-Automatic Scooters
In fact, this is the most popular we provide to beginners. It’s easy enough to learn and it’s cheap enough to rent.
The clutch is automatic but you have the option of the gear shift. They have four rotary gear system (all pressing down in the front). Once you change gear, they are like fully automatic scooters but give you the option for power and a gear braking system. Therefore, they are easy to ride and are safer than fully automatic bikes. Cheaper on fuel and repair as well.

150cc Touring Scooters
Finally, if you see this then you are not like most of the beginners. You want to take it a bit rough and want the total control of the bike. However, make sure you at least know how manual clutch and gears work. Honestly, manual car drivers get over this without and difficulty. In reality, this is the biggest and also the most expensive scooter we offer in Hanoi.
