50cc MOTORBIKES & SCOOTERS RENTALS WE ARE PROVIDING IN HANOI
Important: Honestly, these bikes are not really suitable for riding two up on one bike because of the low HP, seat, and suspension. Ideally, riding solo is the best option. In addition, riding on long trips is not recommended.
However, due to the availability and prices, we can only provide the near new Taiwanese SYM motorbikes and scooters. Real Honda 50cc scooters are either too old or too expensive while Chinese copycats are very unreliable. To be clear, 50cc scooter hire is a very very small part of our business and we only provide it at the request of our customers. We will try to prepare the scooters in the best possible condition.
To find out how a small 50cc handles the traffic in Hanoi or if it’s powerful enough, please watch the below video. For more videos, you can visit our YouTube channel.
Why 50cc Motorbikes & Scooters Rentals?
Vietnamese laws require riders of motorbikes and scooters from 51cc to have a valid driving license. However, your home country license is not valid here in Vietnam and only the 1968 Convention international driving license is accepted. In fact, it’s not so difficult to convert a license but many customers still want to play it safe and choose a 50cc motorbike or scooter to work with their insurance policy.
In reality, 50cc motorbikes & scooters rentals are not popular in Hanoi and Vietnam. The demand is low, scooters are small for foreigners. Therefore, we can’t guarantee availability and you should contact in advance to make a booking if you need one.
Why not Honda?
Honestly, we would prefer Japanese Honda 50cc scooters but life is not always as easy as you think.
We don’t provide 50cc motorbikes & scooter rentals older than 4 years so using older bikes or older Honda Cub is not an option for us.
In Vietnam, a new 50cc Honda (Super) Cub is extremely expensive, around 3,000$US. Crazy. Therefore, most new clone Cub on the roads are Chinese copycats.
If we rent 50cc, the only option we have is SYM and it’s the best product at an affordable price. The quality is okay.
Some customers requested a copy of the famous Honda Giorno 50cc, we also had one GN-50 in near new condition and with some customization, it worked out just fine.
50cc Models We Stopped Hiring
Some shops in Hanoi still offer the models below. We discontinued these models because the newer series offer better technology and are more reliable. No shop in Hanoi provides newer scooters than we do.
