Renting a A Class from Zoom cars is cheaper than the Superlow!! There still might be takers for the Harleys, but the Enfields at that price

I rented a swift vxi in goa for 1500 rupee a day - 24 hours, unlimited kilometers. This is just uber expensive! :-D

Expesnsive it may be, but its no different than elsewhere in the world.

Not too long ago on my trip to the US (Boston), I was looking at renting a motorcycle on a weekend and go riding to New Hampshire (mountain country).

This is what I could find: http://www.eaglerider.com/vehicle-ac...omponentID=191

The cheapest I can go is $160 per day. Needless to say, I love to walk when in the US

As Urban_Nomad posted, it's the same premium pricing the world over.

1. The risk factor is just a lot more with motorcycles. Inexperienced riders = crashes & damage. Motorcycles are also easier to steal / crash than cars. This probably explains why it's so much easier to get a test-drive of a new car (vis a vis bike) in India.

2. Unlike cars, I'm guessing that renting a bike is more of a 'weekend' thing. You could rent an A-Class on a weekday (errands, special dinner, highway road-trip), but a bike, perhaps, would be only on holidays.

3. Insurance would be more expensive as well.

4. Lack of tie-ups. I'm pretty sure Zoom etc. get special pricing from the car manufacturers. Harley giving Wicked Rides a discount? No chance.

5. Bike EMIs are more expensive than that for cars.

6. Lastly, the rental car market has cut-throat competition (Zoom, Uber, Myles, Ola and more). There's hardly that kind of rivalry or price pressure when it comes to big bike rentals.

I understand the high pricing. But am sure a few would jump in to get the HD experience.

Why do they mention seats as "2" when there is only 1 on these bikes. Am i missing something?

I am pretty sure that they will be giving a bike with that 'additional' pillion seat. The image may not be the image of actual bike.

The prices have now come down - 1500 for general RE bikes, except Conti GT , which is 1800 per day. I was planning to book either the Street 750 or the Conti GT on 2nd October. I spoke to them on Friday, and took my own sweet time to confirm, and yesterday when I finally made my mind up to get the Street 750, both the bikes were already booked ! I felt like doing this - for the extra long time I took to decide between the two bikes !

Prices bumped, along with a brand new website for wickedrides now! The Royal enfields are 1900 ( was 1500 earlier ) on all days, Continental GT is 2200 ( was 1800 earlier ) Harley Street 750 is now 4000 per day ( was 3600 earlier )

Triumph Boneville is a new addition to the fleet and is 6000 for a day out!

All in all, especially after having rented Zoom cars at far more reasonable prices, the prices seem overpriced now. Especially so, as fuel is at your cost, unlike Zoom cars -where you get free kilometres too!

ii. Passport.
iii. Open signed Cheque.

Point 3 is a little scary. I can understand the need for such a thing. But I prefer how ZoomCars operates with regard to this matter!

Agreed. But they state on their website that in case any of the aforementioned documents can't be made available, you can contact their team and expect some sort of leniency, I reckon.

Browsing through their web page today, I stumbled upon two interesting things.

1. NO CASH DEPOSIT involved. Just present the documents are you're good to go. A couple of months back, they asked me to shell out a deposit of Rs. 2 Lakh.

2. The bike shall be given with a full tank of petrol and has to be returned with a full tank! Bewildering. I've used Indimotard a lot of times, and I never came across something like this.

Planning to go for a day long spin on either their S750 or I883. Mostly, the latter as the former is something which is quite not in my good books.

Rented the Superlow on Saturday and had it till Sunday afternoon.
Must say it was one of the best birthdays I had!

I was a bit hesitant to shell out 5k at first thinking it was 12hours.When they told me it was 24 hours, I thought why not, after all Birthdays happen once a year and so does a chance to ride a Harley.
Superlow was the only bike in their fleet that I hadn't ridden before, so I decided on that and it was a good choice. It had Screamin Eagle exhausts and air filter which I was hoping it did.

There is a limit of 250 Kms in 24 hours after which it is Rs500 for every 50 additional Kms.
I did 250kms on the dot and got a mileage of 18kmpl which included a blast of a ride on Sunday morning and getting to see all the biking groups on the highway in the process.

The bike was 2 years old and ran well, it had a damaged front mudguard for which they are waiting for the part. Overall it was a good experience and yes I will do a repeat next year on another model for sure.
Good people to deal with. No nonsense lectures. They respect you as a biker and in turn you respect the bike they give you and have a nice ride. And in the process you feel like a VIP riding a HD for a day. 5k well spent I would say.

Nice to hear tharian . That's a nice gift you gave yourself.

No such options in Chennai yet. I would have done this had it been available in Chennai

My friend and I wanted to book the Superlow and Street 750 for two days in April.

We went to their office yesterday and to my surprise they weren't willing to provide insurance on the bikes. This was a deal breaker for me because if something untoward were to happen then I would be held responsible whether or not it is my fault. Also they transfer the bike onto the customer's name (they asked me to sign Form 30) which technically makes me the owner for the rental period only. So in case of any eventualities then I will be forced to cough up. No cash deposit is a good thing but then not providing/transferring the insurance will not make any sense because it takes out the thrill of riding peacefully! I'd rather drive peacefully than hire a premium bike and constantly worry about keeping it safe/bringing it back in one piece!

Further to this if they are running a private insurance policy, it will not cover any risk. Please see disclaimer in a standard private policy. Wonder if the motorcycles are yellow board? How does Zoom Car do it?
