Yamaha Nuovo [Tourist Rental]
Our most powerful automatic scooter. The Yamaha Nuovo is very quick, is great for carrying a pillion and has plenty of storage under the seat.
*Please note that this is an automatic bike, meaning you’ll be limited to the city in which you rent the bike and its immediate vicinity. This is for your own safety: automatic scooters lack the power to be ridden for extended periods of time, and they do not handle steep or poorly maintained roads well. If you’re looking to do some touring, please check out our semi-automatic and manual bikes instead!
Our biggest automatic scooter, with a 135cc engine, large wheels and plenty of space under the seat (though, not as much as the Honda Lead). The Yamaha Nuovo has plenty of power, and deals well with a pillion and luggage. They’re pretty heavy and their fuel economy isn’t great, but the’re unbelievably quick.
You’ll often see backpackers touring Vietnam on these bikes since they’re relatively inexpensive and parts for them are cheap and easy to come by. While they can be good for touring, we’d always recommend a bike with gears instead, like our semi-automatic Honda Future or our manual Honda XR 150, since they deal a lot better with steep hills and give you more control over your speed.
