Honda XR 150cc for Traveling Vietnam
The most comfortable ride Tigit has to offer!
The Honda XR 150cc is a dual sport designed to be both on the road and off the road!
Within the 150cc category, it is the most comfortable motorbike for one or two riders.
Although small compared to the western world of motorbikes. This dual sport motorbike is an enormous vehicle for Vietnam and heads will be turned everywhere!
Vietnam is mostly tarmac roads, but an adventure seeker can find themselves deep in the mud. For a compromise of road and off-road, the XR 150cc is the second best motorbike Tigit has to offer after the Honda CRF 250ccL.
The best option for two people!
For a 150cc, the frame size alone makes the XR the most practical motorbike for two people and luggage. The XR also has the benefit of soft and bouncy suspension designed for off-road riding. Pillion riders will be grateful to any driver that chooses the Honda XR!
The XR 150cc falls into the range of “unsupported” motorbikes within Vietnamese mechanics. This means that Honda do not officially service the motorbike or stock the parts. Tigit has these motorbikes on a mass scale and we have the parts. However, on occasion we may need to send a part to your location. Simple things like inner-tubes are not stocked throughout Vietnamese mechanics which means drivers must add them to their luggage load.
Adventure seekers vs New drivers
Without the babysitting of Honda Service centers at Tigits/Clients disposal, small problems can lead to big problems with inexperienced riders. Overall this is an incredibly reliable and easy motorbike to operate, however it does not have the same ease of use as the locally supported motorbikes such as the Honda Winner 150cc.
The 150cc range is where Tigit gets the “newer drivers”, or people who may not consider themselves “adventure seekers”. These are the people who may wish to take a motorbike that allows for Honda to bail them out of any potential difficulty.
Tires Tigit uses
The Honda XR 150L is equipped with dual sport tires which we would consider 80% road with 20% offroad.
