Honda Blade

Most common motorbike in Vietnam!

The Honda semi-automatic is the most common motorbike type in Vietnam. Cheap to buy, cheap to maintain and cheap to run with excellent gas efficiency. Drive up the mountains into remote terrain and Honda semi-automatics will be seen everywhere. Indestructible machines that can handle anything thrown at them.

No breakdown guarantee!

Tigit’s warranty against breakdowns combined with only one oil change in the journey means the Honda Blade should work out similar or on many occasions cheaper than trying to buy and sell a cheap backpacker motorbike!

These are real Honda motorcycles, not Chinese copies that are found in the backpacker area. Make sure to understand the difference of Chinese Vs Real Honda.

Plenty of power!

The Blade has enough power to carry two people and luggage across Vietnam without skipping a beat. Tigit does offer more exciting motorbikes, but there is actually no need to get anything bigger or more powerful than these reliable and affordable machines.

Easy to drive!

Learning the basics of simple gear changes can be taught within 5 minutes. Please watch this video for more information on how to drive a semi-automatic.

Videos are filmed with a wide angle go-pro. Footage appears faster and in closer proximity than in real life.

    Hi there,
    Can you advise if a Blade would have sufficient power for 2 people and 2 backpacks to travel Hanoi to HCM over 2-3 months?

  2. Moira says:

    Hello! Looking to leave in the next few days to head to HCMC. Do you do fully automatic bikes? And how much would a rental be for 20 days or so?

    • Jon - TigitMotorbikes says:

      We only use semi-automatics travelling due to reliability issues with Automatics.
      An email has been sent with more information.

    I am interested in your buy back program on a Honda Blade 110, ending my trip in Hanoi. I am currently in Mui Ne. Is it possible to pick up one your bikes in MuiNe / Phan Thiet area?


    • Jon - TigitMotorbikes says:

      When we are less busy it is possible to do Mui Ne, but at the moment bikes are shortage.
      Our other location is Quy Nhon and failing that, Danang.

      Sent an email with more information.

    Hi Jon,
    I’m looking at riding from Da Nang to HCM around the start of May. Just wondering if you can advise what licence I need to obtain to ride legally in Vietnam? i.e. UK CBT test. I am looking into the Honda Blade 110cc for around 2-3 weeks, do you think you’ll have availability?

  5. Beaker says:

    Hi Jon, I’d like to buy/rent a Blade or Exciter in HCM on March 11 or 12. I plan to ride it to Hanoi over 4-6 weeks. Do you have any in stock? Thanks!

    • Jon - TigitMotorbikes says:

      Apologies for the delay, but believe I did message on email.
      The notice was too short for an Exciter, but a Blade is possible.

  6. Harsh says:

  9. Scott Harkess says:

    Hi and thanks for a great website and video. I am arriving into Ho Chi MIn 14/03/2017 for my first visit to Vietnam. I will most likely take the train to Danang or onto Hanoi. I have a 30 day tourist visa and am travelling solo. I am not sure what is best whether I should try to rent a bike in Danang and ride to Hanoi to tour the northern region of Vietnam or rent a bike in Hanoi and spend more time in the north. I love mountain scenery, but not sure what is best. Do you have any suggestions? Also would you have a motorbike available for rent approximately from 20/03/17 to 13/04/2017? I hope to come back in future, so what I miss this time around will try to complete another time. Thanks for your assistance.

    • Scott Harkess says:

      Hello again. Just had some great ideas from Tom at Vietnam Coracle on riding a motor bike. Do you have a motorbike available for pickup in Danang on 19/03/2017 and dropping off latest 13/04/2017? Thanks.

      • Jon - TigitMotorbikes says:

        Thanks for all the feedback. Good to see Tom is still recommending us.
        I have replied to you in more detail on emails.

  10. Brett says:

    I want to buy a bike with guaranteed buyback. Will use locally in Quy Nhon. Interested in using for approx 9 months- a year.

  11. Erik says:

    I would like to make reservation for buying one of Honda Blade bikes during 12.-22. January for buyback as solo traveler. Pick up location would be Danang and drop off location would be Ho Chi Minh. Are there still some bikes available ? When would be best to pay deposit?
    Thanks in advance,

  12. Chelsea Stanford says:

    Hi Jon

    We are travelling HCM to Hanoi from 23rd February to 19th March 2016 and will be buying a Honda Blade each, on buy back. When would you suggest we pay a deposit to hold them? Thanks

    • Jon - TigitMotorbikes says:

      Paying the deposit as soon as possible is a good idea. Until our stock catches up with demand we will remain short on bikes until mid 2017. Messaged in more detail via email.

  13. viona van cauter says:

    Me and my friend are travelling through vietnam from hanoi to HCMC. We were planning to buy a motor or two and go from north- south. I have experience in driving a scooter in Indonesia but was wondering for such a long distance if it would be better to get a semiauto moto? Do we need to book in advance? Our traveldates would be between february and march. And whatv would be the costs?

    • Jon - TigitMotorbikes says:

      The semi-automatic is the simple and common choice. It will get you across the country without problems. Automatics are more expensive and there is much more room for things to go wrong. This is why we encourage people to use the semi instead of the auto.

      For FEB you need to be careful of TET holiday which finishes on the 5th. Prices are on this page but will send a follow up email with more information.

  14. girts vernis says:

    I (solo driver) plan to rent a bike from 25th to 29th of November to drive Ho Chi Minh – Tan Chau – Phu Quoc – Can tho – Ho Chi Minh. Is it available any bike? What conditions?

    • Jon - Tigitmotorbikes says:

      Yes it is possible.
      The Honda blade is $10 a day.

      Are you sure you want to travel the south? There are better places to go.

      Also to get to Phu Quoc and back in 4 days is ambitious / impossible.
      Sent more information via email.

      • Jerome says:

        Hi Jon, arriving in Hanoi on Jan 5th.
        Will return the bike in HCM on Jan 18th.
        Looking to rent a Honda Blade for the trip.
        Can I get a quote, and would you have a reliable route map to share?
        Thanks, Jerome

  15. Jonas Smead says:


    My girlfriend and I are arriving in HCMC and looking to buy/rent 2 honda blades from you from October 13- November 10th/ish. Will you have any in stock? Once we get into HCMC should we stop by your shop?


    • Jon - Tigitmotorbikes says:

      We have a constant rotation of motorbikes but at the moment running short in both Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh. To guarantee bikes it is a good idea to deposit in advance. Details have been sent to your email explaining further.

  16. Donald Wong says:

    Hi there,

    Planning to ride from HCMC to Hanoi from 31st Oct 2016 to 25th Nov 2016. Will you have any Blades in stock for these dates? I’m going solo so will only need 1.

    Also just wondering what forms of payment do you accept? Cash? Paypal? USD or VND only? I saw a mention about British Pounds for transferwise in the rental contract.


  17. A says:

    Hi. I have booked flights to arrive HCMC on 17 December and want to hire/buy back motorbike under 125cc from 21st December and return at Hanoi on 8th December as I return back to UK on 10th January. I will take out travel insurance that covers motorbike accidents and will obtain IDP.
    I live in Scotland, am 61 years old..but a young 61!!
    Any advice from you is very very welcome. Very much looking forward
    Thank you meantime.
    Adam Winski

    • Jon - TigitMotorbikes says:

      Thanks for showing an interest.
      I assume returning bike on 8th Jan not December?

      Blade 110cc is under your 125 bracket 🙂 Check carefully with the insurance.

      No worries. Vietnam is no problem for a young 61 year old. The weather might be too hot for a scot though. Bring Suncream.
      Let me know if you have any further questions.
      Email sent with further information.

  18. Cam says:

    Looking to bike from Hanoi to Nha Trang in March next year for roughly 3-4weeks, looking at the Honda blade, just wanting to know about the buyback policy and what it means.

    • Jon - TigitMotorbikes says:

      We are a rental company.
      Can leave a passport.
      Or we have a buy and buyback as people like to travel with a passport.

      We have a purchase value (where you buy the bike) and a guaranteed and set buyback. This works the same as a rental.
      Buy for $1000, buyback $800 = $200 “rent” + the various transport costs depending where you are starting and finishing.
      Hope that answers your question.

  19. Thomas croteau says:

    I’m looking to travel for 4 weeks doing the south to north or the north to south route. I would prefer a full automatic so not worry about shifting at all. Is it possible for one way trip and how much?

    • Jon - Tigitmotorbikes says:

      Will send you an email with more information.
      Yes it is possible to do a one way trip. On the standard bikes like the Honda Blade and Suzuki Hayate the total rent works out to be $240.

      We always recommend the Honda Blade, but if you really do not want gears then the Suzuki Hayate is the next best choice!

  20. Jan Kotaska says:

    Hi, we’ll be traveling from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh from 26th Sep till 11th Oct and we would like to rent a decent bike that would carry me and my girl. Can we book it thru your webside? thanks

    • Jon - TigitMotorbikes says:

      We do bookings through emails as there is additional information we provide. Will contact you separately via email.
      Thanks for showing an interest.

  21. Darragh says:

    I’ll be in HCMC from the 7th september and am looking to get a honda blade for about 4 weeks. Do you have one available around this date?
    Thanks & regards,
