The motorbikes we offer on our tours
Thai Bike Tours provide quality motorcycles, usually no more than 1 to 2 yrs old. Brakes and tyres at UK standards and prepared and checked prior to each tour. All bikes are electric start and the support vehicle will always carry spares and tools to sort most eventualities.
Big Bike - On-road Tours
The Suzuki Vstrom 650cc tourer is a great bike for big bike road tours and is now fully available and is proving to be very popular especially amongst BMW GS1200/850 riders.
We also use the Honda cb500 plus the Kawasaki versys 650cc. We use the very light and capable Honda CRF300cc for our Motard rides.
Classic Bike Tours Asia
Celebrating 10 years of successful motorcycle touring in SE Asia, in July 2019 Alan launched Classic Bike Tours Asia. Classic Bike Tours Asia offers unique motorcycling adventures throughout Northern Thailand and SE Asia on an exciting fleet of the legendary Triumph Bonneville and the brand new Royal Enfield 650cc twin Interceptor, both reborn as modern classics with full retro style. We have a selection of Triumphs finest models for your motorcycle adventure, including:
- T100 900cc
- Thruxton 900cc
- Street Twin 900cc
- T120 1200cc
We currently use fully prepared and modified Honda CRF 250/CRF300cc as our main off road dirt bikes. More than enough power for this terrain, light enough to pick up when you’re tired and extremely reliable. For shorter riders we also have the fantastic Kawasaki KLX175cc. for more information please visit www.passionendurotours.com
The Yamaha Xmax 300cc and Honda PCX 150cc Scooters are fully Automatic-no gears-twist and go. Anyone, yes anyone, can ride these beauties. They are a luxury scooter, comfortable, smooth and more than enough power for a day ride into the mountains through to a more adventurous 3, 5, 7 to 14 day tour of the whole of the North of Thailand. The Yamaha XMax and Honda PCX scooter will handle it all with ease. You choose the route and the duration of the tour.
Safety really is a priority for us as most of the tours we are riding are in extremely remote regions. I hope too it''s your priority? We do have assorted body armour, knee pads and elbow pads, helmets, boots, gloves jackets and boots etc for off road tours, but they are all used and tend to be of the larger sizes XXL and XXXL. I do recommend you bring your own helmet and any gear you choose, as wearing ill-fitting gear really isn't where you want to be, you want to feel good and on top form to enjoy some of the best biking you will ever have the pleasure to experience. Sunglasses or tinted visors are required too!
Sturdy walking boots are sufficient though, I do recommend ventilated jackets for road tours with elbow back and shoulder protection. Full racing leathers are definitely too hot. We are constantly adding to our “kit list” so check with us before you rush out to buy riding gear for your Thailand bike tour. However, let us know what you need, if we have it in our storeroom it's yours rent free, if we don't, we can go and buy it for you with no profit added, you simply pay the ticket price.
