A guy from this store went to the hostel where I was to show me the motorcycle. He seems to be a nice guy and also give you some informations. But he is a good actor, don't get fooled. Do not make business with them as I did. That's why I'm writing, to alarm you.

I paid 250 USD for a motorcycle that was supposed to be trustable. However, after driving 300k, I had to change the shock absorber (40 USD more). The oil was leaking all the time and the front wheel was off-axis. Really dangerous.

I have never been so scammed in my life. I was supposed to finish my trip in Ho Chi Minh, but the motorbike was falling apart in Da Nang.

So, if I can give you one honest advise, I say: do not buy a motorcycle there. It's not only about money, is about safety.

I bought a motorbike from Hanoi Motorcycle and I am really happy with my experience! I was intending to travel to north and south Vietnam, they sold me for 335$ a 10 year old Honda Win 110cc bike that they had prepared for my travel: new tires, overall check, backpack rig, bungees, big plastic bag to put your backpack in, lock, phone holder, helmet... they gave me many advices about trafic laws in Vietnam, they fixed every little issue I felt on the bike... i have had some problems on the road (needed a new starter, tighten the clutch or the breaks, flat tire) but nothing serious and quite normal when you make a long trip. When I came back to Hanoi after my North loop, they made an overall check on the bike for free, as aftersale service. I got along really well with Luke, the seller, who speaks perfect English. They sell different kind of bikes: scooters, semi automatic, fully automatic, dirt bikes... I really recommend this shop to foreign backpackers who want to experience motorbike trips in Vietnam for cheap...

Dont trust, dont buy

Long story short: bought two honda wins for 325usd (!) each, both broke down after 150 km. Have been stuck on an island for 5 days with not working bikes. Got back to hanoi, were yelled at from a CANADIAN guy who is an awful human being. Our fault that the bikes are not working, haha. Then the mechanics fixed the bikes for another afternoon (seriously 5 hours) and we got the bikes we should have gotten and paid for a week before. This is bulls*** . Save yourself nerves and emotions... ALWAYS buy from a backpacker even if it takes more time. ALWAYS!!!!
(Met a girl on the road who bought a vietnamese dublicate from them, she got 250 km North then had to get the completely broken bike in the bus and had to get back to hanoi like this... Just saying, not a onetime thing)

Do not trust them

I bought an automatic scooter from them and it's a total piece of junk. 
After 2 days of buying it I realised there were some minor problems, the light only worked 2 minutes and then went black and the exhaust pipe was backfiring. At first they didn't want to fix it saying it was nothing but I insisted and they finally agreed to fix the backfiring, which I realised later was not true, they just pretended to do something about it. As for the light the seller told me there were no problem with it and that I didn't need to drive at night anyway! 
The first long stretch of road I did I ended up in the middle of nowhere with no power, the scooter couldn't move forward anymore, and of course the night came and I had no light, that was only the beginning of my problems. 
This scooter is just too old and everything is breaking apart. They told me it was the best one for me, with good power and perfect for a trip up the mountains. They seemed nice at first telling me that if I had a problem I could come back and they would fix it and that if I was too far I could call them and they would try to help me, this is totally untrue. I cannot do more than 50 km without having a problem. I will soon have spend more money on repairs than on the bike itself. When I tried to call them to tell them about the problems they told me I got what I paid for and it was probably my fault...

Dead bike
Nov 2017 • Friends
I tried a Honda Win and told them the gearbox isn't ok. They only readjust the clutch and said it's alright now. In fact it was a little better, so I believed them and bought the bike for 240$. I wasn't three miles out of town, when my gearbox finally broke. On my further journey I had to visit too many workshops to repair things, which isn't easy because most mechanics don't understand any english. The pedestal once simply broke off, and anything is still making strange noises in my motor. Matter of time that I have to visit a workshop for this.
Probably the bike is older than myself, though they will tell you something different. My advice is, do not buy a bike there and if you do, don't get a Honda Win. So annoying to visit almost every workshop you meet on your journey... And expensive with the time.

Buying a motorcycle in Vietnam
May 2017 • Solo
I bought a motorcycle there and had absolutely no idea how to drive one.
They were very patient and spend a lot of time to show me how.
The best thing, as i had some problems on my bike after a week of driving, they fixed them for free.
Also very good English speaking guys.
Cheers guys!

Friendly and Best Motorbike shop in Hanoi!
Mar 2017 • Friends
The guys here are awesome, they are really helpful and not pushy. They bent over backwards to make sure my brother and his friends had good safe bikes, knew how to drive (taught a couple of the guys in the group how to ride and made sure they were confident on the road) and provided back racks and straps for their road trip. Bikes were cheap and good! Highly recommend anyone wanting to get a bike to explore this amazing country, to visit Hanoi Motorcycles!!

Best honest & hospitable expieriance

This is their main loacation. They also have another location more conveniently located in the old quarter at 43 Đào Duy Tù,Hoan Kiem in hanoi.with at least 50 to 60 bikes to choose fromThe really awesome thing is that if not sure how to get there they will pick you at your hotel,hostel free of charge. The western staff did make it easier and helped me feel comfortable when purchasing a bike for local city travel or for taking a road trip. Another added bonus was they added an extra rack for my traveling bag, bungie cables with a rain cover, a paper map,cell phone holder to avoid stopping to look at my gps & a helmet FREE of charge. Regardless if you want a automatic, semi-automatic or a manual motorbike/motorcyle. If you cant drive one...they will personally provide you with FREE lessons! The amount of concern and compassion from staff including a genuine concern for my financial and personal safety alone made the experience worth it alone.

Telephone : 096668179

And ask them for E.T.N. or Luke for native english speaker.

Sold us a complete piece of s***
Aug 2016
While the staff was very friendly, the bike was absolutely horrible! They convinced us we needed an automatic 150cc bike for $350, without telling us said bike was almost completely broken, had no power, multiple parts dead, and impossible to repair in Vietnam since it is rarely driven here.

On the drive from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh, we stopped at minimum 2 mechanics per day (about 30 total) and spent over $100 on repairs. Every mechanic told us the bike was worthless and never driven in Vietnam.

Drives that were supposed to be 3 hours ended up being 10 because of all the stops at mechanics.

Somehow, we made it to Ho Chi Minh. But, since we (unlike this company) are honest people, we refused to sell it to some other poor backpackers and leave them with the same problems we had. Instead, we searched for a company in HCM to buy it, and could not find a buyer for more than $50.

Overall, including repairs, we lost over $400 on this bike (SYM excel). Although I can't say for certain the staff was aware at the beginning, we were informed that they had a mechanic make sure everything was in working order, which was clearly false. They also told us we would be able to sell it for the same price in HCM, when every mechanic we saw on the way said they wouldn't even pay 1 million dong for it. On top of that, they were not upfront about how rare this bike is in Vietnam and how difficult it is to repair here.

Save yourself time, money, and frustration - go somewhere else.
