Honda Wave Alpha
Honda Wave Alpha [Tourist Rental]
The Honda Wave Alpha is one of the most popular bikes in Vietnam. Very light, with excellent fuel economy.
Inexpensive, lightweight and extremely reliable, the Honda Wave Alpha is arguably Vietnam’s favourite motorbike. It’s basically the older brother of the Honda Cub: it may lack a bit of the character of its smaller counterpart, but it more than makes up for this by being more comfortable, more capable, and having an engine more than twice the size.
Because of the Honda Wave Alpha’s popularity, parts are very cheap and easy to find and local mechanics all know these bikes inside-out. This can be handy if you decide to travel outside the city, which these bikes are more than happy to do, although if you’re looking to carry a pillion or a lot of luggage we’d recommend going for either the upgraded version, called the Honda Wave Blade (it’s got disc brakes and a better engine), or even the significantly more powerful Honda Future.
