Motorbike for Rent in Chiang Mai2021-01-03T00:01:47+07:00
Our motorbike rental in Chiang Mai is created by travelers for travelers. We traveled to more than 30 countries, and we perfectly know and understand how important it is to choose the right service provider in a foreign country. With us, you can be sure that even in the most difficult situation you will not be left alone, and we will try to help you even if you have traveled more than 1000 kilometers from our motorbike rental office in Chiang Mai. Our task is quality service, and the fastest possible elimination of defects when they appear. Because even perfectly serviced motorcycles sometimes have problems.
Please note that it’s important to clarify the availability of the vacant motorcycle before coming to our office. You can do it by phone or via messengers. Before renting a motorbike make sure you read the sections Lease terms (here it is written what is included in the price), Tips for riders, Traffic Law in Thailand and fines. We do not hold a passport as a deposit. It’s illegal in Thailand. You need to pay only a refundable deposit (THB, USD, EUR).
How much does it cost to rent a motorbike in Chiang Mai?
The cost of renting a good-quality 125cc motorbike in Chiang Mai with insurance – 200-300 Baht (6-9 USD) per day. Also, the price depends on the renting period. For example, if you rent a motorbike for 1 day, the daily rate will always be higher than if you rent for 1 month. A motorcycle, which costs 300 baht per one day, will cost you only 1200 baht per week, or only 3000 baht per month.
1000+ km with pleasure and good mood! Recommended!

Rented four motorcycles for two weeks for a family trip to Chiang Rai and Mae Hong Son. The registration time is 10 minutes, the prices are very affordable, the motorcycles are in good condition, we drove 1000+ km with pleasure and good mood. Recommended!
This is a first class bike rental company. We rented 2 bikes to do the Mae Hong son loop and they never missed a beat during the entire 700km. When returning the bikes they refunded a 500 baht over-payment which I hadn’t even realized I had made. ( After paying a deposit for the bikes I then paid the full amount on collection). Absolute honesty from this very professional company. Really, don’t hesitate to use them.
I rented a 125 automatic for 9 days, and the price was very reasonable. I checked out other shops and none of them were able to match the same price or even come close. I also like to able to select the bike that I want and Cat Motors have many to choose from. Other shops will bring the only one you ask for, so you don’t get a chance to look them over.
The bike ran went well and drove through 1864 curves. I took it easy and treat the bike over bumps and around the corners to make sure no damage to the bike and make the trip safely. Thai drivers are great. They don’t honk or rush you if you are holding up traffic. They just drive pass you. 125 cc is more than enough for one rider. It’s convenient to drive around town.
A recommendation for those who plan to do long trip is to rent the bike for an extra day or two to test the bike out and become familiar with it. I was glad I took the bike on a day trip to Doi Inthanon and Chiang Dao before heading off to do Mae Hong Son loop.
I was super satisfied with Cat Motors. I rented a scooter for trip to Pai and back. When i stayed one day longer in Pai as was planed i just call the lady by Cat Motors that i will stay longer. She did not complicate about that. The guys are super friendly and fair. The scooter was perfect without any problems. I recommend this company to everybody who want reliable renting company. Thank you very much guys. See you in 2020.
Very professional, fair and helpful staff. We got a great Click,drove it up to Pai and back, and kept our big bags with them while doing it. Check in and check out was seamless. The lady down the street at Dang was trying to smooth talk but wanted to keep our passport. Nope! Glad we headed over to Cat!!
We rented a crf250 rally for a month, great bike! Friendly staff and the bikes are in great condition. Also got a couple of full face helmets with the bike for free. You don’t have to leave your passport just a cash deposit. And if you rent a bike for a longer period it’s cheaper per day. We had zero problems the entire month so definitely a good experience. Highly recommend these guys and would rent from them again!
Wir haben zwei Roller 125cc für eine Woche gemietet. Wir waren rundum zufrieden. Würden jederzeit wieder bei Cat Motors Roller leihen.
Bestes Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis in Chiang Mai.
Wir hatten noch nie so gute Roller in Thailand bekommen. Roller waren in einem guten Zustand.
+ Helme waren gut (man konnte sogar günstig, neue (!) Helme kaufen, die anschließend in Zahlung genommen wurden)
+ Übergabe mit vollem Tank. Wir konnten direkt durchstarten
+ first aid kit in jedem Roller
+ gratis Regencape
+ Personal sehr freundlich und fachkundig
We had a great time renting our bike. The service was great and it took no time renting and returning the bike. Scooter is definitely the quickest and cheapest way of getting around if you brave enough to do it on Chiang Mai’s busy streets. While the deposit was quite a lot of money (3000THB), it was well worth it!
We rent a motorbike for a day. Price was good, the motorbike was in perfect condition and we haven’t any issue. The staff is really friendly and nice! Next time I’ll be in Chang mai again I’ll go to them again for sure!!!
I dropped a number of bike rental companies in Chiang Mai an email to enquiry about bike availability and cost. Cat Motors were the only one to reply quickly. A quick WhatsApp chat and I booked a bike for a week and within an hour they delivered the bike to my hotel. A quick and simple registration and payment process followed by the customary condition check and I was soon enjoying the open roads of Chiang Mai – well, at least significantly more open than Bangkok LOL. I rode the bike extensively within Chiang Mai and to some of the more distant temples. The bike never let me down and was remarkably fuel efficient. At the end of the week, Cat Motors collected the bike from my hotel. They were professional, friendly and accommodating and I have no hesitation recommended them.
Incredibly Friendly Staff and Excellent Condition Motorcycles

I have been renting from Cat Motors for just over two years. Their staff have always been incredibly friendly, no matter what my query or problem was. Their motorcycles are also in excellent condition, and are serviced regularly. If you’re looking for the best value for money on a rental, Cat Motors is the place to rent from.
They have top quality bikes, best helmets and are super responsive via messenger. I rented for two and a half month there and would totally recommend. I tried 3 other places in Chiang Mai before but this one was best. Hard to top I think.
I took bikes on two occasions from these guys. The first was a couple of auto bikes for use around town. Absolutely no hassle. Easy to rent, do paperwork, and also return and get deposit back etc.. I felt totally comfortable with these guys. The second was they gave me a bike to tour FOC and I did the Mae Hong Son Loop for 6 days. Again, the bike never missed a beat and I had a great time. Returned it, got my deposit and all was cool. I totally recommend these guys as they are genuine and do what they say they do. A breathe of fresh air in a dog eat dog industry.
Super Team! Alles hat bestens geklappt und wir waren sehr zufrieden. Es stehen einem ordentliche Roller zu einem guten Preis zur Verfügung. Das Team weißt einen in die Handhabung ein und steht bei Fragen jederzeit zur Verfügung. Absolut zu empfehlen!
Cat Motors is an awesome shop to rent your bike. My bike was in a good state, it was easy to extend the duration of my rented bike during the Mao Hong Son Loop. Furthermore, no passport as a deposit is a big plus.
Please remember, the longer the term of the motorbike rental period, the lower the rental price per day.
Among other things, we have season discounts depending on the number of motorbikes in the parking lot. That’s the reason why the same motorcycle can cost different prices for a year, depending on the rental availability.
We have a special bounty program for travel bloggers that provides them with an opportunity to rent a motorbike for one or two weeks free of charge. If you have a travel blog, you can contact us by email for further information.
Please note that we do not rent motorbikes to travelers without riding experience. We do not. No jokes. If you have zero experience riding a motorcycle and you don’t understand how dangerous it is, then, in this case, choose another rental of motorcycles for suicide.
The motorcycle is a high-risk vehicle, and your family members expect you to come home safe and sound. So, if you can’t ride a motorbike, you better use Grab-Taxi or a Taxi-Meter. Possibly, it would save your life, even if you are now reading these lines and think, “How dare they teach me what to do?!”
If you have come to Chiang Mai for a long time, but you have never ridden a motorbike and you want to learn, you should read the section Training.
All our bikes are in good technical condition regardless of mileage. The brakes work, the engine is fully functional, the bikes are good looking and they don’t have a bald tire and other “surprises”, plus we have different useful stuff that you would never find in other rentals of Chiang Mai. Read more about what else is a part of the motorcycle rental agreement in the Lease terms section.
In addition to that, when you rent motorcycles from our company, we provide you with medical insurance. Also, you can always use our help in receiving the insurance payment in case of an accident. For more information, please read the Insurance terms section.
We spend about 20-30% of the rental cost on motorcycle maintenance. All motorcycle rental prices indicated on this page above are fair for a fully operational motorcycle timely maintained in the Yamaha or Honda dealerships. Minor operations are carried out by our professional mechanics.
