Are you planning on buying a motorbike in Nha Trang? If yes, the first question you should (seriously) ask yourself is whether you can drive well. You have probably noticed that few rules apply when it comes to traffic in Vietnam. You should always be extremely reactive and able to anticipate changes, either because of a pothole on the road or a driver suddenly switching lanes without warning.
Which Motorbike Should I Buy in Nha Trang?
Here I will give you the common motorbike options. In short, the best motorbike in Nha Trang for me was the Honda Win, but that might not be to everyone’s liking.
Honda Dream, full-automatic, 100cc scooter. Price Range USD 200-300
Honda Wave, semi-automatic 100cc motorbike. Price Range: USD 200-300
Russian Minsk, clutch 125cc motorbike. Price Range USD 400+
Honda Win, clutch 110-125cc motorbike. Price Range USD 300-400
Although automatics are made by real companies such as Yamaha or SYM, in the $300.
Honda Wave & Honda Dream
If you want to go out looking incompetent and not looking a real biker then you can go for the Honda Wave or Dream. You get a nice comfy seat and a bike that changes gears easy. Really though, where is the fun in that? Would you really have motorbiked Vietnam or just scooter’d it?
The best motorbike in Vietnam is no doubt the Honda Win. It has the best value for money and provides the best riding quality. With the Honda Win, you will be accepted by fellow riders as having a real motorbike. Importantly, the Honda Win will also offer that clutch control needed to ride the high mountain passes in northern Vietnam.
The Honda Win will break down as all motorbikes in Vietnam do. However, in the long run, the Honda Win in Vietnam is truly indestructible. Replacing a chain will cost up to $5 and even blowing up an engine will only cost $50 each time.
Things to Check Before Buying a Motorbike Nha Trang
So now you know where to buy a motorbike and which types of motorbikes are the most usual in Nha Trang City, Vietnam! It’s time to go into details and talk about the things you should pay attention to when testing the motorbike.
Check the condition of both tires. You can put the price down if the tires are well-used and you should change the used tires as the roads can be very slippery in some sections.
Front and rear signals are working?
Front and rear lights are working? Does the brake indicator on the back work?
Always check out the condition of your horn and loudness level of it! It’s one of the most important things on your motorbike!
When doing a test drive, try out your brakes and get a feeling of tightness. It can be fixed easily since the mechanic just needs to adjust the cables and wheel.
Try to turn on the motorbike with kickstart and on the electric starter.
Drive a bit and leave the motorbike on the stand. When the engine gets a bit warmer, you shouldn’t see any oil leaks below.
Put the bike on the center stand and rotate the rear wheel to see if it’s centered.
Drive in all gears and check out if there is an anomaly when changing the gears. The gears should change without much effort and you can also put in the neutral gear once you’re in 1st and 2nd gear (manual bikes).
Another great tip when buying is to have a local friend who knows people and who can help you with negotiating the price. Believe us, the language barrier can be a deal breaker here!
