Based in the capital city of Vietnam, Hanoi Motorbike Rental has been offering large Japanese Honda road and dirt/trail bikes since late 2006. Most of the shops that offer motorbike rentals in Vietnam use scooters (semi-automatic or fully automatic 50-150cc). In addition, many shops now even provide cheap and unreliable Chinese Win 110cc. On the other hand, most of our motorcycles are manual clutch, from 125 to 250cc. In reality, our bikes belong to less than 10% of total motorbikes in the nation.
As a note, this business is part of Offroad Vietnam Adventure Travel.
All Japanese Honda touring bikes (for long-distance trips) and motor scooters (for expats to ride in Hanoi) are owned, maintained, and prepared by ourselves. In other words, we put ourselves into your position. In general, we want you to have a good trip as much as we love our business.
As we have just one office in Hanoi, sadly there is no one-way rental available. You collect and return the rental bike(s) in Hanoi only. Below are bikes we hire out in Hanoi.
To know which motorbike/scooter is the best for you, please watch the below video. For more videos, you can visit our YouTube channel.

Manual & Semi-automatic Scooters
These scooter rental rates below are quoted based on maximum 1,500km monthly mileage and for commuting in Hanoi only. However, we also rent this type of bike if you ride in the Northern mountains or down to South Vietnam (unlimited mileage) at a higher rate by day or by week.
Honda semi-automatic scooters Wave and Blade 110cc. Made in Vietnam between 2014 and 2018. There is no clutch but gears that you need to change while you ride. The monthly rate is 50 USD.
If you want to get something bigger, there is a 150cc manual clutch Honda Winner sport-touring scooter for 100$US/month. It’s quite powerful and has 6 gears.

However, we don’t rent this type of bike if you ride in the Northern mountains or down to South Vietnam (unlimited mileage) because of the low ground clearance and small wheels.
This is the smallest in our fleet and they don’t require a licence. However, they are small and underpowered. All scooters are Taiwanese products from KYMCO and SYM.
