The largest rental motorbike in Vietnam

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.

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 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.

Honda CB 500x detailed specs.

Twin piston liquid cooled engine packing 49.6 horsepower.

ABS front and back breaks

Adjustable pre-load front and back suspension.

Weight – 196kg

Seat Height – 31.8 inches (810mm)

We require a licence

To rent this motorbike the driver must have a valid motorbike licence from home and an international drivers permit. We will not rent this motorbike without the correct documents.

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

    • Jon - TigitMotorbikes says:

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

  24. Ray says:

    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?

    • Jon - TigitMotorbikes says:

      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.

    • Stephen says:

    – I’m from France with an international licence (I didn’t take my French one) would it be enough?

    Thanks in advance

    • Mint says:

  26. Alexander Tsapin says:
