Indonesia Motorcycle Videos

The Southeast Asian country of Indonesia is the world’s fourth most populous nation. Given the sheer number of people it is only natural that motorcycles play a big role in the daily and recreational lives of those who live there. Whether it is the pristine coastlines or the awe-inspiring national parks, Indonesia is an exotic destination that is on the list of must-see places. Here is taste of what its like on two-wheels in this exotic local.

  • Kemal Kautsar

    My Country! that’s me with my Honda CB150R (no that’s not a typo it really is 150cc, 250cc bikes is the maximum cc you can get without an insane amount of tax)

    • Ricky Mohammad Nugraha

      yep, over the 250cc capacity bikes, we get the “luxury item tax” for a japanese 600cc supersports its roughly twice the price of its supposed normal price.damn.

  • Jack Meoph

    I’ve seen other vids of the scooter/hybrid racing, and some of the tracks they’re on have fencing right next to the tarmac, and the crashing looks horrific. But, those guys untangle themselves and attempt to get right back into the race. It’s crazy. The track in the vid is the best one I’ve seen of those races.

      You’re right, that’s an awesome looking track! I race minis and I would love to bomb around a track like that on some of the bikes we ride.

    My lvoe of motorcycles comes directly from my first trip to Bali and riding around overloaded with a best friend and board etc for weeks!

    Why doesn’t the Deus bike in the first video track straight? See 1:06. The front wheel is not in alignment with the rear wheel. Possibly a warped swing-arm or a mal-aligned head tube?
