A rental motorcycle will be essential for your road trip. Here you can find out how to choose the best option.

Which rental motorcycle do you need for your trip?

Here are 10 tips that will allow you to make the right choice, every time.

1. Define your trip first

Will it be mostly highways or the road less traveled? This will have a great influence, as it will condition the model of the motorcycle you rent as well as its speed and power.

2. Are you bringing a companion?

While this doesn't necessarily define anything, it is true that for long trips for two people, there's nothing like a roomy bike where you can sit and ride in comfort. On the other hand, if you are going it alone, a more manageable model may be the best option.

3. Mark the route well and control the distance

It is one thing to visit a city and the surrounding area, and quite another to cross a country in its entirety. For the second case, you will need a powerful model that won't let you down. For the former case, however, a scooter will suffice, for example.

4. Strike a balance between the ideal and the most economical model

Keep in mind that many rental motorcycles have a much more environmentally sustainable approach. This is also a very interesting option, and will allow you to travel in a much more environmentally friendly way. This can be a good way to sift through all your options.

5. What kind of road trip are you looking to complete?

Let's give you a simple example: imagine that you are going to take a trip around some of the most beautiful lakes in Italy, and you decide to prepare a picnic and eat once you are there. However, your motorcycle does not have the space or options to carry your food and everything you need for this adventure with you. In that case, what are you going to do?

There will be trips that are very urban-centric, and vehicles designed to take you from A to B around the city in comfort. However, if what you are looking to do is immerse yourself in nature or a trip much less dependent on urban centers, your vehicle needs to be up to the task.

Therefore, once again, thinking ahead will be key.

6. Control the type of road

Will you be climbing mountains or traveling on a plain? How demanding will the road be on your engine and the vehicle's wheels? Keep in mind that, when you rent a motorcycle, road conditions can have a strong influence and can cost you extra.

Therefore, do some research on the difficulty of the routes you are going to take so that it does not become a more expensive endeavor.

7. Check vehicle availability

Check the available options, because they may condition the overall type of route you can take. Likewise, our expert advice is to make your booking as soon as possible. This way, you can make sure you will have your desired vehicle available.

8. Control and calculate the duration of your trip

By this we mean make sure you know how many miles you will have to travel. The longer the distance and the more miles, the more advisable it will be to choose a motorcycle with good power and good endurance.

In addition, this way you can also better organize the route you are going to follow. You will see that, by doing this, your trip becomes a much more comfortable experience.

9. The weather is key

Are you going to a very humid area? Do you know if it will rain a lot during your trip? Or, on the other hand, will the summer temperatures make the asphalt boiling hot? Study these factors to cause as little damage to the vehicle as possible, so that you can avoid complications with the deposit.

10. Get expert advice

There is nothing like experience to make the right choice, as long as it is available to you. Our team of professionals can help you with everything you need to make the best decision.

All you will have to do is explain a little about what you have planned and take our advice on board. Don't forget one thing: the key is to enjoy yourself. So choose the model you like the most.
