The Honda CB 500x is the largest rental motorbike in Vietnam

The Honda CB 500x is a comfortable mid-sized adventure motorbike. Perfect for the job of traveling Vietnam in style.  The Honda CB 500x has ABS breaking on both the front and back. A comfortable upright seating position, adventure kitted forks, and shocks with extra travel for hitting those potholes at speed. 

Honda CB 500x reliability and performance

The Honda CB 500x is a smooth well finished machine. It looks stunningly beautiful, and it glides along effortlessly. The Honda CB 500x is the “large-capacity motorbike” that Tigit has chosen to invest money in. This is down to the performance, reliability, and overall customer feedback.

37L Aluminum boxes on the Honda CB 500x

Tigit kits the Honda CB 500x with free 37 litre Givi Aluminium side boxes (per box, 2 x 37L). An optional top box can be rented through the booking platform. This motorbike is in our fleet for a traveler wanting something similar to what they may drive at home or for a comfy two-person cruise. However, this motorbike is way beyond the performance capabilities needed in Vietnam. Get this motorbike for comfort, safety, control, and stability. Not for speed or power.

The Honda CB 500x is a “do it all” mid sized adventure motorbike

Internationally the Honda CB 500x would be seen as a mid-sized adventure motorbike. In Vietnam, however, it sees itself as a powerful, large-capacity machine that dominates the roads of Vietnam. We are finding riders of the CB 500x enjoying all riding styles, from casual road journeys to pushing their skills in the Vietnamese jungles. The motorbike appears to handle everything, to the point that a growing CB 500x community is being built around renting our CB’s and then going on to buy one of their own. 

The Tires we put on the Honda CB 500x

Our tires are still all over the place, but as they wear out, we are equipping the Honda CB 500x with Metzeler Karoo Stree tires. Tigit Jon has found these to be the best value for money over distance while providing a 70/3o road to offroad feel.

    1. You should have a British license + international drivers license. For big bikes in Vietnam you need to play by the rules, for 150cc and below, you don’t need to mind so much.

    I am keen to rent a CB500X for a 3 or 4 days as a sort of try before you buy option. I see that currently they are all out on the road but when becomes available can you let me know please?

    Many thanks


    1. Which city are you based in ?
      An email has been sent with more information.

  25. You guys offer any insurance with your bikes? Looking at the cb500x for a trip from HCMC to Danang and back.
    I notice you can claim the full cost of the motorcycle should it be stolen etc. Do you have insurance to cover this?

    1. Currently we do not have theft insurance for this, though the concept is under discussion.

      The issue we have is, there is literally a 0% chance of getting a motorbike stolen in Vietnam if using parking lots and sensible hotels. There are no reasons to get a motorbike stolen.

      Adding the concept of insurance, disclaims against such a notion. Theft is 100% driver error and should never happen in this country.

    2. Hi I’d love to rent for a month the cb 500x, from the 5th October till 5th November 2019. Hanoi to hcmc. Thank you

  26. Hi,
    I’d like to rent a CB500X (or equivalent) from June 15 ~3PM to June 16~7PM.
    2 questions:
    – Can you deliver the bike at a hotel in Hanoï or I’ll have to pop to your office?
    – I’m from France with an international licence (I didn’t take my French one) would it be enough?

    Thanks in advance

    1. Hi,

      Sorry that the minimum rental is 3 days and we don’t work on Sunday.
      Also, big bikes should be booked in advance for weeks to 1 month

  27. Hi, I want to go to Bao Loc on June 16 (this Sunday) – it will be a round trip, morning to Bao Loc and afternoon back to HCMC. I want to ride the bike in HCMC 2 days before that date, to get used to it. So the dates will be June 14, 15, 16. So pick up and drop off is HCMC.

    1. Hi ,

      Sorry that we don’t work on Sunday, and the minimum rental is from 3 days, kindly choose another date to drop off.
