Offroad/DualSport Bike Rental
« on: January 08, 2019, 11:34:58 am »
I'm trying to find out if there are any Offroad as in Enduro/MX bike rental or perhaps Dualsport (DR650/690/ G450X etc) bike rental available in Cape Town area?

I have someone coming to visit from overseas and wanted to take them to maybe Atlantis dunes for the day, they have an license and can ride but they are not expert riders that's going to be jumping etc. basically pottering around the dunes if its MX type offroad bikes. Or I was thinking if that is not available getting something like a DR650 or something maybe? Not sure if I'll then take it to the dunes but one can then go ride some dirt roads or something.

Anyone know of something that could work or someone I can contact?

Omninorm. Pm sent.

Sadly our rental fleet are strictly for our guided tours only.

I guess there is a gap in the market for rental dirt bikes but the cost of maintenance and the high purchase price would mean rental rates would be prohibitive.

Thanks Wildwood.
Yeah, definitely a gap- I think you will get people that would pay R1700 or so a day for KTM/WR/CR 250 -300 - 500. One will have to do the math I guess. The beauty with dirt bikes are that they tough so not easy to break but then again you might have to let the renters sign proper waivers.
