    Default Motorcycle Rental for Touring

    So I haven't been on the forum in 5-6 years... I left Japan in 2010 but come back every year. I am hoping to come to Japan in Summer 2019 with a friend and rent some bikes.

    I've googled a bit and seen a few links so far.. wondering if there's something better than what I've seen. Any recommendations?

    Would love to see 400cc or bigger for less than 10k yen per day.

    Rental 819 is going to be by far the best bet.

    I think I'm gonna have to switch it up and do a Grom/z125 thing.

    Apexmoto could rent you bikes ( 400cc inline 4's ) at 6,800/day if 4 days or more. 7800 if 3 days or less.
    We also offer long term storage, so if you plan on coming to Japan every year, you could buy a 250 and store
    for 35,000/year.

    I used http://bestbike.co.jp/ recently. Very smooth, and the bike will be waiting for your wherever you want. The price seemed good as well. Landing at Tottori airport and having a bike waiting was rad.

    I had trouble with 819 before. Not the company themselves, but one of the shops they work with in Hokkaido didn't want to rent to gaijin.
