Automatic Motorbikes
Automatics are the easiest motorbikes to ride, there is no changing gears so for a beginners will find these bikes the easiest to learn.

They are not the most useful bikes for travelers to use compared with manuals or semi-automatics simply because when you go up mountains being able to change gears is a lot better for the condition of the bike and the ease at which you can get up the mountains and as a traveler around northern Vietnam you will be climbing up and down mountains a lot as this is part of the beauty of the north.

The fuel tank is also smaller and will be under the seat so you will have to stop more often and each stop will mean you have to remove your bag.

If you are heading south then this is less of an issue but still it is recommended you try a manual and semi-automatic before going for an automatic.
