We would like to say up to now (2022 – 2023 after Covid- 19), We are still one of the best motorbike tour organizers in Vietnam who have the most and best motorbikes for any tours in Vietnam.
For some reasons, most of Vietnamese people ride a under 175cc motorbike or scooter . firstly, the bigger motorbike we have to import and the government charge the import tax at least 100% with a huge fee on registration so generally it may cost twice as expensive as in foreign country.( it’s too expensive for most of people in Vietnam). Secondly, Vietnamese traffic law allows motorbike’s maximum speed is 40 km/h in the city and 60 or 70km/h on high way. So the bigger bikes seem to be not necessary in Vietnam.
Over the year riding motorbike tours in Vietnam we understood that a high quality bike is one of the most important things to make the perfect motorbike trip. Vietnam Motorbike Tour Expert is always doing our best and being not hesitant to invest a lot of time and money on maintaining good quality of bikes or updating newest possible bikes. Below is the list of bikes we usually use and did have great on and off-road trips by them!
