Buying a Japanese-used motorbike in Phnom Penh

If you’re a fan of Honda Super Cub, chance is that you can easily get a good, reliable one in Phnom Penh. There are just so many wholesalers and shops in the heart of the Cambodian capital city. In Phnom Penh, when talking about motorcycles, we must think of the Khlaing Rumsev, which is home to many Japanese motorcycle depots and has been famous for decades.

In the meantime, I would like to mention Japan motorcycle warehouses/shops you should check out before go there in person:

One of the great thing is about this place is you can find so classic, old models of Honda Super Cub. Its location is just opposite to Phnom Penh Sport Club.

Tips & tricks

Before visiting a motorcycle shop, you should check its presence online. Most shops have their Facebook Page with latest photos and live videos. You can take this time to compare price before going there to see your wanted motorbike and negotiate.

If you have a friend with in-depth knowledge of second-hand motorbike, you have great advantage to select the best of the best. These mentioned shops are reputable in Cambodia. You can expect to get the most genuine spare parts of the motorcycle you’re buying.

Getting one of the used Japanese motorbikes from a Phnom Penh shop, you’re entitled to get a tax paper. This official document is for making the plate number for its legality on the road.

A Honda Super Cub motorbike is very affordable for most Phnom Penhers. It’s easy and low cost to maintain. There are many spare parts available for replacement. After years of use, you can also sell it without losing much as other new, expensive bikes.

Why I recommend a Super Cub instead of others? I’ve owned all used Honda Cub imported from Japan. It’s easy to trust this world’s great brand name from the Japanese maker. I like the older editions, those made in the 1960s and 70s.
