Motorbike rental in Kyrgyzstan: rent a motorcyle in Bishkek or Osh

Why travel by motorbike in Kyrgyzstan ?

In Kyrgyzstan, there are thousands of trails suitable for exploration. Our book “Explore Kyrgyzstan” (available in May-June 2020) offers you a selection of 25 off-road routes throughout the country. Motorcycle travel in Kyrgyzstan offers a unique feeling of freedom. If you have little or no experience, please note that the tracks in the book will be classified by difficulty level from 1 to 5 and 80% of them are in the easy or medium category.

Tip: There are relatively few motorbike rental agencies in Kyrgyzstan and the demand is high. Therefore, we recommend that you book your motorbike in advance, as they leave very quickly, especially in July and August!

Which bike to rent for your road-trip in Kyrgyzstan ?

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

We highly recommend a trail-type motorbike for your trip, unless you wish to stay on the main roads.

To help you find a motorcycle for your trip to Kyrgyzstan, we put you in touch with trusted rental companies that we know.

 State of roads in Kyrgyzstan

As mentioned above, roads are paved only on major routes. To reach Lake Issyk Kul and the main cities (Karakol, Kochkor, Naryn, Osh,…) you will drive on asphalt. On the other hand, to reach the mountainous areas and the most beautiful natural sites of the country, you will have to ride on tracks whose condition is directly subject to weather conditions. Fords, mud and landslides are quite frequent on the tracks. You will therefore understand the interest of having a trail-type motorcycle high enough to pass these obstacles.

Rent a motorbike in Bishkek

Bishkek is where the majority of rental agencies are located. There are not many motorbike rental companies, but the market is growing. We advise you to book in advance. Here is a selection of serious and professional rental companies.

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.

    The Yamaha 600XT has everything a motorcyclist could want for an adventurous road trip to Kyrgyzstan: reliability, light weight, ruggedness, power, and more.

    During our exploration of Kyrgyzstan (summer 2019), the OunTravela team was equipped with this 600XT and it’s nice to ride with it… In short, it conquered all the explorers who rode it. Will you be next 😉

    Aibek speaks English and Russian. He is very good advices on the routes. You will find our book “Explore Kyrgyzstan” for sale in his agency!
    His bikes can also ride in 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!
