Vietnam Off-road Motorbike Tours Business

Are you a fan of off-road motorbike tours? You land in a right place and welcome to the official homepage of Vietnam Offroad Motorcycle Tours! This website is part of Offroad Vietnam Adventure Travel, a company that offers  premier outdoor adventures in Vietnam such as off-road motorbike tours, 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.

Vietnam is a motorbike nation and there is no better way to see this vibrant country than on motorbikes. A successful and safe adventure needs to be operated by a professional company and you have found the right place.

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. This bike was underpowered, unreliable and used 5-6l/100km. We realized time for this “iron buffalo” was over and there should have been a better choice. We opted out 4-stroke Honda larger road and dirt bikes from 125 to 250cc. We own Honda bikes for many years and know that this is the best choice because parts are easy, bikes are reliable and one thing says it all: “Honda” means “motorbike” in Vietnamese!

In late 2013, Vietnam Offroad imported new XR125L 2013 series and this bike quickly became the perfect choice for small off-road motorbike tours despite of the smaller wheels (19″ front and 17″ back). They are super reliable, fuel saving a environment friendly. For the larger dirt bikes, Honda XR250 is still a very good option. This model has comfortable suspension, strong engine and HP to get you further on any rough roads in Vietnam.

New Manual Bikes At Vietnam Offroad From 2014

For new manual bikes, as of March 2014 after Vietnamese government allows everyone to own motorbikes larger than 175cc and driving license is much easier to get. This A2 license was only possible for government authorities and motorcycle clubs, now anyone who pass a public driving test will have this license.

Many motorbike giants have been discussing with the government and trying to cut down the taxes (import tax, luxury tax and registration taxes) so the large motorbikes become more affordable. It’s the time we also need to upgrade to the brand-new 2013/2014 small manual bikes. Vietnam Offroad is happy to announce the arrivals of the two new models below (Dirt bike Honda XR125L and Sport Touring Honda CGL125). This also means we will discontinue the older models like sport touring Honda GL Pro 160cc and Honda dirt bike XL 125cc. Many shops in Hanoi still use the older models and we always pick up the best choice when it become available.

It is a big change after many years that giant motorbike makers like Honda, Yamaha, Suzuki, Ducati, Kawazaki, KTM, Harley Davidson etc. will be introducing many large displacements later in 2014. Currently, Yamaha and Suzuki are assembling the manual 150cc in Vietnam, nothing bigger yet. Stay tune for more news.

Hanoi Off-road Motorbike, Scooter Rentals

Based in Hanoi, Vietnam Offroad has been offering Hanoi off-road motorbike, scooter rental activities to foreigners (travellers, tourists and expats) using  Japanese Honda bikes since late 2006.

Many people were surprised with the high costs of manual clutch motorbikes in Vietnam. Vietnam officially allowed imports of brand-new (no second-hand, except foreigners with valid working visas import for their personal use) in May 2007. However, 90% import tax, 10% VAT plus 20% excise/luxury tax for motorcycle from 150cc and a huge fees on registration in Hanoi generally make a large displacement bike twice as expensive as it would cost in your country. Therefore, at least 90% of bikes you see on the road is automatic or semi-automatic scooters.

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 which means we put ourselves into your position. We want you to have a good riding experience 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. Please follow the link below to have more details about our Hanoi off-road motorbike, scooter rental business.

Safety Motorbike Riding Gear Rental In Hanoi

As you know, safety riding gear is the only to protect yourself when you do an adventure on two wheels. In Vietnam, most local riders use top basic helmets that provide very little protection. Fatal rate is high due to poor equipment or fake products. Vietnam Offroad imports some quality motorcycle riding gear and equipment and you could hire them for 5 USD/day for a typical set of a HJC helmet, a pair of Scoyco gloves, Scoyco protection elbow pads (or jacket) and knee pads (or pants). All are quality products.

- Summer protection knee and elbow pads (Scoyco brand) – Full face or open face HJC helmets CL-33. – Quality MX Scoyco and Biker fingerless and full gloves

Saety Motorbike Riding Gear: Korea's HJC helmets. China's Scoyco gloves and protection knee and elbow pads. Riding gear is one of the most important things if you take your adventures seriously. Vietnam Offroad provides helmets, gloves and knee and elbow pads.

Most of our customers bring their own riding gear to Vietnam. That is best because we don’t have all sizes in Vietnam. For example, M, L, XL are easy but either side will be hard (S, XS, XXL or XXXL). Many airlines don’t like to transport helmets so you may just buy or hire one when you are in Hanoi. Some shops near our office sell quality imported products starting from around 40$US for a full face HJC helmet like in this picture.
