1998 Honda XR250 Baja For Sale In Hanoi

Special update

Many people who want to buy this Honda XR250 Baja model worry about selling bikes back when they end in HCMC (Saigon). Honestly, we don’t offer buy back option because we don’t buy and sell bikes. These are bikes we don’t need after upgrading to newer bikes. However, many expats who work in HCMC also ask us about buying this model down there, but again we have no office in Saigon so we, unfortunately, can’t help.

To make it easy for everyone, we will help people who buy this model from Hanoi by providing contacts who want to buy in HCMC. For people who buy back this bike down in HCMC, you can have a lower price than buying from us but expect some service needed. Note that we have parts for this model in stock, replacement and repair can easily be done in Saigon.

Honda XR250 Baja for sale

Offroad Vietnam has been using this dual sport enduro model since 2007 and it’s now time to upgrade to a new fleet of Honda XR125L and XR150L. We have been taking good care of these 1998 Honda XR250 Baja Enduro and hopefully, they will find good new owners.

Made in 1998 in Japan, single cylinder, 6 speeds, 140kg, front and back disc brakes and delivers 28HP. The wheels come with 21″ front and 18″ back which make pot holes as smooth as highways. Some even come with optional kick-start which makes it easy to start the bike if the battery is low. Available in silver, red or black colour. Recently restored in 2014 with some customized parts like front headlight (single), back brake (twin calliper) etc. and currently in good working conditions.

All bikes come with papers.

Some people asked us to buy a bike as a project bike, sadly we don’t sell bikes this way. We just sell the whole bike and you can do whatever after purchase.

Why are these bikes expensive?

FYI, bikes above 125cc come with 120% taxes in Vietnam so expect to pay around 2 times for the same bike in Vietnam like in your home country. For example, a new 250cc Honda CRF250L (same displacement like XR250 Baja) costs over 10,500$US in Hanoi, with papers. However, in Thailand where the CRF250L was made the price is just 4,200$US. Therefore, don’t expect cheap prices when you look for a real iron horse!

Why buy our bike(s)

There are only some of these 250cc dirt bikes you could find in Hanoi. However, most of them don’t come with papers or were poorly maintained. Below are a few reasons why you should buy our bikes:
– We are honest about bike conditions and provide a repair history.
– Owned and serviced by a team of more than 6 years riding these bikes.
– Come with blue card registration papers.
– Customized and fine tuned for long distance touring.
– Possibility to sell your bike back in HCMC with contacts who want to buy.
– Parts available when you need.
Assistance when you need help on the road.

Sorry, we already sold these bikes.

    I will be travelling to Saigon (Ho Chi Minh) in August of this year to start a new teaching job. I am interested in where I can buy a new Honda CRF 250 Rally or simply the Honda CRF250L – but I would prefer the Rally as I am interested in adventure biking… If you know any motorbike dealer that stocks this model please let me know. Thanks

      Hello Piers. These bikes come with 120% taxes so they cost between 9,000$US (CRF250L) to around 11,000$US (CRF250 Rally) new. You can search for Thuong Motors or and they could update you with the current prices and availability. Good luck.

    Hi Ahn,

    We are two people, deciding weather to do a loop trip back to Hanoi (hire), or a one way trip down to Saigon (buy these two).
    Are these two bikes still for sale?


    • Anh Wu Reply

      Hello Joe. Yes, we have these two bikes for sale. Rental is also okay at 35$US/day/bike. But we are in Vietnam only until May 30th. After that we ride on a vacation to Laos until June 8th. So if you want to buy the bike come before or after these dates.

    Is this bike still available?
    If so how much?

    • Anh Wu Reply

      Hello Stefan. Sadly none of these bikes is available until mid-May (just updated). You can do some research but it’s not easy to find a quality old bike like our fleet in Hanoi. Take a closer look because many mechanics are not really honest 🙂 Good luck.

      Gilles. Sadly, we are based in Hanoi and have no contact there to recommend. In fact, good mechanics can be quite expensive. Do some research and contact them. Unfortunately, most don’t speak English so you might need help from a Vietnamese friend.

      Our bikes for sale are currently only available from December 8th 2015.

      One of our red Honda XR250s use Honda XR650 front suspension so it fits you perfectly. It also have a 28HP engine and the cost is 1,800$US. It’s a 1998 model so it’s in old conditions, not new. FYI, a new CRF250L costs as much as 10,000$US new in Hanoi.

      We sadly don’t have any contact who sells jeep as you wished.

      What’s your dates? Our bikes for sale are currently only available from December 8th 2015.

  7. Chris Reply

    Why don’t you list the price for the last of the bikes, the 250 cc Baja? I’d like to know the answer, too (several people have asked that question…) Cheers! Chris

    • Anh Wu Reply

      Hello Chris. This was answered many times. We have about 10 bikes for sale and the prices are different for each bike, starting from 1,500$US to 2,500$US. We could only tell you the price of each bike when you come, look at at them and ride test them. Pictures say nothing about bike performance.

    It’s been a dream of mine to tour bikes through South East Asia. That being said would it be possible to bring the Baja into other South Asian countries if so what would the price/requirements be to cross over borders on the way to India?

    If I decided to stay in Vietnam with the bike would you consider buying the Baja back?
    If not do you think it I would be able to sell it anywhere after using it for around 1 month?
    Thank you, Peter King.

    • Anh Wu Reply

      Hello Peter. We sell used bikes to upgrade to a newer fleet which costs much much more. Sadly, we don’t buy these bikes back. To take it to another country or sell it you need to try your luck. Some people said they could bring their bikes to other countries but some reported “not possible”.

    What additional papers are needed to drive these in Vietnam?
    For anything under 175ccs it’s easy, but I hear that for things above 175ccs it’s a bit more difficult to make sure that *everything* is properly legal.

    • Anh Wu Reply

      Vietnamese laws require a motorbike driving license for motorbikes from 50cc (A1 for 50-174cc and A2 from 175cc). The police rarely stop foreigners to check license unless they do something stupid or wrong. It’s more to do with personal medical insurance. You can’t get a local license with a tourist visa, even if you have a business visa, you need a work permit and a company to sponsor you and wait 7-10 days after you arrive in Vietnam to do paperwork. This means it’s near impossible to get a local license and therefore you can’t buy any insurance in Vietnam. If you don’t have a Vietnamese driving license, you can’t purchase any local bike insurance policy for you. Luckily, you can buy a personal medical insurance policy from companies like Allianz, CHI or World Nomads etc. They only request your country driving license. Vietnam driving license is a very complicated issue. Even Vietnam doesn’t recognize any foreign license but take it easy you will be ok. More details are at this link.

      The government is working on accepting international driving license from 2015 but unfortunately there is no final confirmation from the Ministry of Transport. Laws in Vietnam need sometime to be enforced through a complicated system of decrees and letters.

    Yes but I’m not asking the price of your bikes, I’m asking the price of the bike in the photo, which has now changed from the original photo when I originally contacted you

    • Anh Wu Reply

      Jay. The first one is the cheapest at 1,500$US and was sold. It’s now too late to buy that bike. The current photo is 2,500$US which is the most expensive. We don’t want to show all 9 photos. We still have some cheaper ones. Come have a look and we will show you options. Photos don’t tell anything about real bike conditions. These bikes are not cheap in Vietnam.

  11. Jay Reply

    Ok, you will need to provide your address then for me to come and see your bikes. Thanks.

    • Anh Wu Reply

      You can see our office detail here. Please call me on 0913047509 before you come so we can prepare bikes.

  12. Jay Reply

    How much are you asking for this bike? I wish to buy an offroad bike in or near Hanoi for travelling around.

    • Anh Wu Reply

      Hello Jay. We have about 10 bikes for sale and the prices depend on conditions, starting from 1,500$US to 2,500$US each. We can meet and show you all bikes and you choose the one you like. Thanks.

      • Jay Reply

        I am only interested in the Honda Baja , Suzuki Djebl, or other Japanese off road bike. My question was referring to the Honda Baja you have listed here, what price is it, please?

        • Anh Wu Reply

          Hello Jay. We are selling 10 Honda XR250 Baja bikes (no other brands). As we mentioned earlier the costs are from 1,500$US to 2,500$US depending on conditions. Of course the better bikes cost more than the older ones. You can come and ride test the bike and choose one for you. I am sure you will have good value for that money.
