We provide more fully guided off-road bike tours than motorbike rental (unguided trips) so we are likely booked up quite early before. Therefore, if you want to hire motorbikes from us please do it as early as possible.
We are not just competing on prices but more about assistance when you are riding. For assistance, no shop in Hanoi surpasses us as we are mechanic ourselves and we speak perfect English. In the long run, you save because if you need help, we are straight to the point, very clear, and don’t waste your time.
One-Way Vietnam Motorbike Rental
Please note that we don’t offer one-way motorbike rental as we have only one office in Hanoi. Many clients asked if we could deliver or collect bike(s) in Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City – HCMC) or anywhere other than Hanoi and we are sorry to say “NO”. All rentals start and end in Hanoi.
Rider Skill Requirement
We don’t normally rent bike(s) to inexperienced/novice rider(s) as Vietnam is not a place to learn or test your riding skills. If you want to hire a 250cc trail bike, make sure you are over 1.75m or have had good riding skills or ride/own one like this. Even if you send a deposit to book our bike(s), we won’t refund if you can’t ride the bike(s) reserved.
Duration Of Motorbike Rental
At the moment, we don’t offer 24 hours rental service. If you pick up the bike anytime before 5pm you pay for the full day. If you pick up at midday on the first day and return midday on the next day we charge two days, not one day. The minimum of a rental is at least 2 (two) days.
You need to send a 50% rental fee deposit before collecting the motorcycle(s), motorbike(s), or scooter(s). No deposit refund if you cancel the booking or after you pick up the rented vehicle(s). The balance will be paid when you collect the bike(s).
Our Rental Bike Fleet
Offroad Vietnam has 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 don’t just look at prices. Our rates are competitive and the quality is best.
Last yet importantly, don’t start off on an automatic, step-over scooter. These things have hair-trigger acceleration, usually, no foot brake, and the front wheel turns too easily. Start on a 110 cc bike with semi-automatic (clutchless) gears. The discipline of changing gears means you will build up to speed more slowly, and therefore, more safely. The front wheel is easier to control smoothly, and you all have that foot-break instinct from your first push bike when you were kids. However, don’t fear the models with a clutch. It doesn’t take that long to get used to it, and it gives you more control, safety, and smoother shifting.

50CC SCOOTERS (NO LICENCE IS REQUIRED)
Most of our customers hire the motorbikes and scooters above, but some do request 50cc. In fact, we have some from Taiwanese manufacturers like SYM and KYMCO. Our team works on them and make sure they are very reliable, almost like Japanese Honda. Our fleet includes both automatic and semi-automatic scooters. They are lightweight and are super easy to ride.
Please note that due to the size and engine, 50cc scooters are good for just one rider. If you have a passenger, you either have not enough space to sit or power to ride.
