Motorbike rental in Kyrgyzstan: our recommendations in Bishkek and Osh

Price, model, road condition, rental companies, etc.

In this article, you will find all our tips for renting a motorbike in Kyrgyzstan: which model? At what price? Road condition, insurance, etc. We also suggest you a selection of reliable and serious rental companies. Unfortunately, since the Covid-19 pandemic, many rental companies have had to sell their vehicles. The offer is therefore quite limited.

road book and travel guide book about Kyrgyzstan

Riding in Kyrgyzstan

Kyrgyzstan is home to thousands of trails for exploration. From sandy desert tracks to mountain passes at 3,000m, the wild beauty of this small country will amaze you. In our book EXPLORE KYRGYZSTAN you will find a selection of 24 off-road routes throughout the country. The motorbike will give you a unique feeling of freedom and will attract the curiosity of the locals.

Note that Kyrgyz people do not use motorbikes to get around. The few motorbikes you will come across are mainly driven by tourists. Some rental companies are specialised in renting trail-type motorbikes with all the right equipment to travel independently.

If you wish to rent a motorbike in Kyrgyzstan, we recommend that you arrange this in advance. Despite there being ever more agencies, the demand is still greater than the supply.

Road condition in Kyrgyzstan

The roads connecting the main cities of Kyrgyzstan are paved. You will not need a trail-type motorbike to get to Lake Issyk Kul and the main towns (Karakol, Kochkor, Naryn, Osh, etc). Although a lot of work has been carried out in recent years to improve the state of the road network, you should still travel carefully. The roads can be deteriorated by potholes, bumps and debris. Even on sections where the roads have just been finished, we do not recommend that you drive too fast.

When you leave the main roads, you will be on tracks where the conditions are very variable. To help you, we have classified the routes of the book EXPLORE KYRGYZSTAN by difficulty levels, from 1 to 5. As some routes are poorly maintained, their degree of difficulty may vary according to the weather and recent flooding or landslides. If in doubt about an itinerary, do not hesitate to ask the local people or the tourist offices.

Please note that some border areas require a permit. Order your permit online here. For more information on restricted areas, see the map here.

Which bike for your road-trip in Kyrgyzstan?

There are very few motorbikes in Kyrgyzstan. The majority are driven by tourists. Unlike in Southeast Asia, it is not common to ride a motorbike or a scooter.

You will be able to ride on the main, paved roads with any type of motorbike, but as we have said, beware of potholes, bumps and other defects that the road may have. In general, ride slowly because danger can spring from anywhere, especially the large amount of animals that roam freely in Kyrgyzstan. You are vulnerable on a motorbike, and medical emergency services are very limited, so it’s better to prevent it.

For riding on Kyrgyz tracks, we strongly recommend a light and powerful trail-type motorbike and off-road tyres.

The biggest difficulties are fords. It is sometimes impossible to cross them on a motorbike. If the water level is above your knee and there is a current, we advise you not to take any risks: turn back or wait until the next morning (rivers are lower at the beginning of the day).

Don’t forget that in addition to your own weight, you also have to add the weight of your equipment and any fuel reserves, which can quickly make the bike heavier and slower. Also note that conditions can become extreme with snow and slippery roads, especially when riding over mountain passes.

Ma femme et moi avons loué des motos en avril 2019 du 10 au 16 avril pour faire le tour du lac Issik Kul. Sergi nous a donné le meilleur itinéraire pour profiter de notre voyage. Nous avons vraiment apprécié piloter les Yamaha xt 600 et Yamaha xt 225 de ma femme. Toutes les motos sont bien entretenues et en bon état. Merci Sergi. J’espère revenir bientôt.

Rent a motorbike in Osh

If you want to visit Tajikistan, it will be easier to rent a motorcycle in Kyrgyzstan in Osh. Osh is also an ideal starting point to visit the beautiful Alay Valley, a mythical region home to the Lenin Peak (7134m). Here is a selection of serious and professional rental companies in Osh.

Oibek – The Yamaha specialist in Osh!

5
Rated 5 out of 5

Oibek has a fleet of 10 Yamaha 600 Xte. This bike has everything a motorcyclist could want for an adventurous road trip in Kyrgyzstan: reliability, light weight, ruggedness, power, and more.

During our exploration of Kyrgyzstan (summer 2019), we rent it and we liked it so much that we bought one two years later!

Aibek speaks English and Russian. He gives very good advices on the routes and you can ride his bikes to Tajikistan.

Yamaha 600 XTe

An ideal bike for the off-road routes of Kyrgyzstan! This machine is powered by a 595 cc, air-cooled, single-cylinder, four-stroke engine that delivers 43 horsepower. This power combined with the low weight of the beast (170kg) will allow you to ride at high altitudes, such as the Tosor Pass at 4000m. What's more, the XT consumes very little: with its 15-litre fuel tank, it's easy to envisage a range of nearly 300 km. In short, you will have understood it, this bike is our favorite to explore Kyrgyzstan!
