With anything in Vietnam above 170cc getting heavily tax’d, “big motorbikes” are still rarely seen out there on the roads. Tigit is the first to be renting large capacity motorbikes in Vietnam with legit/real paperwork.
Honda 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.
For two people luggage or careful cruising
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. 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.
Honda CB 500 Adventure with side boxes / panniers
Tigit’s Honda CB 500x is loaded up with 37L Aluminium boxes from Givi and full crash protection gear. The 500x is marketed by Honda as an “adventure motorbike”. We don’t really buy into this concept of a road bike pretending to be an offroad dual sport, but that mild adventure concept is probably handy for the potholes and occasional gravel tracks that you may find out there on the roads.
Tires Tigit uses
Currently tire distribution remains a problem and we struggle to get adventure tires. Most tires we use are road oriented and we are expecting this motorbike to be rented for road use.
