Honda XR

The most comfortable ride Tigit has to offer!

The Honda XR 150cc is designed to be both on the road and off the road!
The largest, most comfy way to travel Vietnam by motorcycle.

Dual sport motorbikes are enormous vehicles for Vietnam and heads will be turned everywhere!
Vietnam is mostly tarmac roads, but an adventure seeker can find themselves deep in the mud!

The best option for two people!

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 unfortunate truths!
Dual sport motorbikes come with a large “luxury goods tax” which makes them expensive. This is why they are not seen anywhere on the streets!

There are also no parts available to fix the Honda XR, which means a breakdown can cause huge problems to a traveler. Tigit’s XR contract does have a clause for replacement motorbikes, but customers choosing the XR must be understanding of how rare and difficult to maintain these imported motorbikes are. A spirit of being a true motorbike enthusiast is needed, instead of a backpacker on a casual motorbike holiday.

    Hi,

    I am interested in renting the Honda XR April 28th – May 1st. I have a US passport. Please provide a quote. Thank you.

  2. David H says:

    Great videos. If I discount the XR due to price and parts availability, which would you recommend for its versatility in going on dirt roads, which I’m likely to want to do often. I intend to use in Laos/Thai /Cambodia as well. Experienced rider. Thx.

    • Jon - TigitMotorbikes says:

      There is nothing that comes close to the XR for an all round vehicle. This is why we use it, and all the tour companies use it. It is by far the best motorbike for an all round holiday.

      We deal with a wide variety of interests and customers. My over the top disclaimers and videos are a warning to stop beginner riders pre-booking this motorbike. It is an amazing machine, but not a simple and straight forward motorbike like the local motorbikes that are available.

      For people who know what they are doing. The XR is absolutely fine and unlikely to cause serious problems.

    Hello,
    I’ll be looking to rent a motorbike for travel to mountain. From March 31, 2017 to April 8, 2017. Will be available Honda XR? What will the price for it?
    Thank you, for your answer.

    • Jon - TigitMotorbikes says:

      Yes available, please see the drop down on the left that display prices.
      An email has been sent with more information.

  4. Markus says:

    Hey,
    I’ll be arriving in Hanoi at the 17th and looking to rent a motorbike to travel down to HCM. I don’t really have any experience riding a motorbike, but I’m a quick learner, and not easily startled, is this a terrible idea, or will I be able to learn as I go, granted I take it easy in the beginning?

    And ofcourse, will you have a bike available on the 17th – 20th?

    • Jon - TigitMotorbikes says:

      No it is not a terrible idea.
      Though I suggest if you really want to start on a manual, that the Honda Winner is the correct bike of choice. The XR can cause problems when people can’t drive it.

  5. Jenn Knaus says:

    Arriving in HMC on March 11th, will you have an XR available at that time? Or within the following couple of days?

    Thanks!

    • Jon - TigitMotorbikes says:

      Just in time, we will have one available and an email has been sent with more information.
      The pre-booking time on the XR is around 1 month, although our fleet has nearly doubled in the month of February so I hope this motorbike becomes more readily available.

  6. Glenn K says:

    Hi.. have an XR reserved for next month.
    Looking to bring an emergency tyre repair kit. Are the XRS tubed or tubeless?

    • Jon - TigitMotorbikes says:

      The XR is tubed. There are mechanics everywhere in Vietnam. Good to be prepared, but in this country it is possible to get away with the bare minimum!

  7. Jim says:

    Can you please explain the financial aspects of the transactions. Do you charge my credit card $3000 and then give me $2600 in cash at the end of the period? Or how does this work?

    • Jon - TigitMotorbikes says:

      We return the money the same way that you pay.
      Pay in cash we return cash.
      Paypal and we refund with paypal.
      Transferwise and we refund with Transferwise.

      Sent an email with a longer description.

  8. David says:

    Hi I am arriving on the 11th January 2017 and am wishing to rent a Honda in HCMC and then dropping off in Hanoi on the 3rd or 4th of February. Is there any available for this and how does the buy back work?

  9. Jon says:

    Hi, want to know if you would do a five day rental? pickup and drop off in Hanoi.
    Cheers

  10. bonnie says:

    how does the 35 day buy back work?

    • Jon - TigitMotorbikes.com says:

      You buy the bike for $3000
      We buyback for $2600.

      There is different ways of depositing which explained separate by email.
      The other option is $500 and a passport.
      Collect $100 and passport back at the other end of the country.

  11. Daniel Messer says:

    Hi there, I will arrive in HCMC on January 26th 2017 with five other friends. We want to rent a bike each for approximately 3 weeks from 27th January to 15th February, finally leaving the bikes in Hanoi. Will you have bikes available and if so for how much this group booking?

    • Jon - TigitMotorbikes says:

      The total rent works out as $440 per bike after transport.
      We currently do not do group discounts as I believe we are the cheapest “big bike” company out there already. Also have the best online reputation 🙂

      Buy for $3000 and buyback for $2600
      Or $500 and a passport
      $100 and passport back at the end.

      An email has been sent with more information.
      Sorry for the late reply, for some reason messages coming from this page were not getting through to me.

  12. Michael Vogel says:

    Which year oft make are the Honda xr 150?
    Are they Tuner 125l vor real 150l?
    Thanks Michael.

  13. Tony says:

    Hi I’m looking at renting an X-ray 150 on the 17/12/16
    For 10 days how much will it cost and is there a replacement bike if it breaks down

    • Jon - TigitMotorbikes says:

      Depends where you are going. Our prices are mostly set by start and stop destination and not timings. All to confirm we are looking at the XR.

  14. Jason says:

    Heya,
    Looking to arrive in Saigon on the 1st of December, do you know whether you may have any XR’s available to rent at that time?

    Thanks!

    • Jon - TigitMotorbikes says:

      To deposit and have a bike waiting is $100.
      Sent an email with more information.
      Without a deposit then we consider it a walk-by. This is luck of the draw as to if we randomly have a bike sitting in the garage. With the bigger bikes they are normally on the road.

  15. Elijah says:

    Hi, is this the best bike for 2 average sized adults with gear?

    Also, what would be the cost for a 7 day rental from Danang to Hanoi? Or do you only do a minimum of 10 days?

    Thank you for your help! I won’t be taking this trip until March.

    • Jon - TigitMotorbikes says:

      Yes for comfort the XR is the best choice.
      Largest frame size and the seat is quite good to.

      We do rentals in packets as certain destinations require sending bikes around and short rentals are not worth the effort / time ratio of motorbikes sitting on trains.
      The rent works out as $274 due to sending bikes to Danang and from Hanoi back to HCM. Not the most economical way of doing it, but it does work.

      Probably not helpful for your holiday, but as we expand we do hope to remove these train fees from as many destinations as possible.
