How is Motorcycle in Vietnam?

Vietnam S-shaped country located in southeast Asia. Vietnamese border shares the border with China, Cambodia, and Laos, where are mountainous areas, jungles, and forests to adventurers can explore. Vietnam’s long coastline in the tropical zone is an ideal destination for vacationers searching for a beach holiday.

With that topography, traveling on motorcycles is the best way to explore every single corner in Vietnam. But what are motorcycle brands the best in Vietnam?

Until 2014 the Gov public A2 driver license for everyone. Before that, everyone rode a scooter or semi-auto motorbike and all were under 175cc. That’s leading to not too many people having an A2 license to ride a big bike on the streets. Sportbike is a way to travel, but in Vietnam, that is not a good idea. Roads in Vietnam are not good enough to travel by sportbike, but we do travel, not do a race, so sportbike is the last choice on the list.

So how about dirtbike and Motorcross to unfold the real Vietnamese nature?

From 2006, two-strokes bike was forbidden in Vietnam because of Emission Standards Regulations. And bikes with racing”shapes can not get through customs because of the huge taxes how much to pay taxes for those bikes evenly is not mentioned in the law.

However, the Dirtbike community still improving day by day. In fact, In the first days, Vietnam has XR 150 from Honda to build a dirtbike foundation. In the 2010s, Motorcycle brands: Honda, Kawasaki, and Yamaha see this demand and start importing four-stroke dirtbikes to Vietnam. Some introduced dirtbikes this 2021, such as CRF 300L, CRF 300 Rally, and KLX 300 of WR155, have enough legal paper to ride the whole country.

Traveling on dirt bikes, we can visit small ethnic villages located deeply inside the jungle. Through this, you can learn more about the cultures, food, and local life and not be disturbed by tourists. Generally, a dirt bike is perfect for those who love enduro tours and exploring single tracks in Northern Vietnam.

And how you can do a dirtbike tour in Vietnam? BM travel Motorbike Tours is No1 Motorbike Tour Operator.

Furthermore, Adventure bikes are the best way to discover Vietnam and Indochina. Many great motorcycle brands bring their adventure bike to Vietnam. Especially, BMW comes with GS 1250, Honda produces CB 500X or Africa Twin CRF 1000L, Kawasaki introduces Versys 600 or Yamaha manufacture Tenere 700, or Himalayan of Royal Enfield, those ADV bikes will make you comfortable on every trail, Jaw-dropping mountain passes and spectacular vistas await you in this northernmost province of Vietnam or glimmering lakes and rolling pine forests are a delight. It will be an enjoyable experience for the ham driver move, passionate about nature discovery in Vietnam.

Why is Indochina for the adventurer motorcycle riding?

For those bikes mentioned above, we can do a tour from Vietnam to Laos, Cambodia, and back to Vietnam. But why should we do a motorbike tour from Vietnam?

On the first day after a long flight to Vietnam, here we have many things to help  you recover or relax in Ha Long Bay is a great idea you shouldn’t deny. And the last day, after riding for many days one more time, you can enjoy fresh air on the best beaches in Vietnam.

So Indochina is one of the best choices for those who want to have a real adventure, is a land of mystery, legendary and colorful cultures, and breathtaking scenery in each km of riding a motorcycle.
