About
Scooter Monkey is a motorcycle or scooter rental/hire business that tries to make friends first. Then it is up to them to decide whether our services and products meet their expectations. At present we have 13 110cc-135cc Demak, 23 125cc Symjet, 10 110cc Honda, 14 125cc Yamaha, & 2 150cc Honda. For 250cc motorcycles, we have Yamaha R25, Honda CB250, Honda CBR250, Kawasaki Naked, and Kawasaki Ninja. All scooters or motorcycles have 1st party insurance; 90 +% have storage boxes or can be fitted with side saddles; telephone holders, raincoats, & bungee ropes are also provided at no extra cost. It is important for us that our friends can drive safely and fall in love with Sabah. Therefore we provide full petrol so their first destination is where to go - not gas stations. Scooters may be picked up from and return at two locations: Scooter Monkey 2 at Segama (Next to KFC and Plaza Hotel), and Wisma Sabah. Sandakan branch is already operational and Tawau branch will be operational soon.

RENT HERE!!!
Feb 2020 • Solo
After diving with Diverse Borneo, I was keen to spend a couple days scooter touring. The DB guys recommended Scooter Monkey. I went over there with no plan and they got me stoked on a variety of ideas of what to do in Sabah. I ended up going out to Mt Kinabalu NP by scooter and then did a day tour of town. I also rented a tent from them to go up to Kudat. When I go again, I bet I will rent a scooter the entire time. Such a great way to get around, with so much freedom, and enables serendipity. PLUS, the owner is so helpful with anything you need! The bikes are great quality and no hidden costs. A must go to place in KK.

SABAH ROAD TRIP
Feb 2020 • Solo
Friendly and helpful staff. I rented a 150 HP Honda Vario for 10 days. They provide everything you may need, silver service at cheap price. Easy to contact them trought WhatsApp 24/7. I drove 1.200 km while in Borneo, the motorbikes are in excellent condition. They lent me rain coat, ropes, and selfphone holder at not extra cost. The staff is the best and while you fill the forms they give you water/tea/coffee... Besides, they allow you to leave some luggage there at their office. That's cool.

No doubt, Scooter Monkey is the place you want to rent your motorbike.

Thanks for your great review. We try our best to be as helpful as possible irrespective whether someone chooses to rent from us or not as the objective is - to ensure that more fall in love with Sabah. Scooter rentals we feel should cover what is needed and what can be provided.

Monkeys we all are
Jan 2020 • Friends
Get into scooter monkey to rent a bike and come out with a life enriching experience..Riding is not just about moving from point A to B..what actually riding a two wheeled machine means... No-one can explain better than Bonnie who has experienced dealing with different people who rent bikes evyday...the moment we get on to a bike we are monkeys and has his own Darwin's like theory of reverse evolution which is apparent on the wall paintings of his unique themed shop.... Well, I wud like to suggest don't rush to get ur wheels n leave the shop bcoz the shop itself is a worth spending some time n get acquainted to locals while enjoying a cup of coffee at scooter monkey cafe..Get some important tips from Bonnie before starting ur bike journey...

Thanks for the great review. And we are glad to be part of your journey in our wonderful state of Sabah. On a side note some well seasoned travelers believe in practicing their negotiation techniques in Asia. Sad to say, it may be to the extent of being detrimental to small business owners. For example, just comparing the price of rental without consideration of: differences in conditions of scooters or types of bikes; purchasing, and repair costs; rental or labour charges; and services provided. Price comparison should be done on what is available at that location, and not within the whole of Malaysia. Where one can find cheaper rentals, others will find more expensive companies. Riders that are in a hurry are more prone to get into situations that may turn undesirable. It is always best to be cool and collected and spend a little time understanding the terrain and possibility of achieving their exploration desires. Racing against time will spoil your holidays.

Best Scooter rental in Kota Kinabalu

Extremely friendly and helpful people that truly cares about your safety. They have a good selection of scooters, offers rain jackets without extra charge, and they'll serve you great complimentary coffee while you get set up. Highly recommended!

Thanks for the great review on your scooter or motorcycle experience. We like our riders to be safe and enjoy their time in Sabah. It is more of a friendship company than a scooter rental company. Because we are concern about riders' travelling needs and how they will help the community. Strange though this may seem to most, it is the nature of what is now lost in most businesses - humanity. Budget travellers are only concern about price. It is uncommon for them to do a price comparison locally, ie this may span different states or countries. This is relatively unrealistic as it is not about viability for the businesses to survive. Thankfully, we have had the fortune to have met many that are understanding and friendly like yourselves.

The best ! A mile above the rest.

这是哥打京那巴鲁最好的踏板车出租,他们正在与其他人合作,在沙巴提供更多出租服务以及旅游服务。他们超越了正常的商业惯例,因为他们关心自己的骑手和沙巴人民。他们付出的努力,以及遇到的傻瓜数量值得称赞。。。我肯定沒那耐心。。。

This is the best scooter rental in Kota Kinabalu, and they are working with others to provide more rental services in Sabah as well as tour services. They go above and beyond what is normal business practices because they care about their riders and the people of Sabah. With the effort that they put in, and the amount of fools that they meet, they are commendable.

Thanks for the understanding and great review. Majority of the time, thankfully, we meet up with reasonable people. They understand that with the amount that is charged, it is actually quite reasonable. Thanks for your support.

Thanks brother. Most riders are appreciative of what we try to do in terms of range of scooters and motorcycles as well as back up services. They know the bike rental business benefits the local community in a huge way as their means and ease of transport makes it more enjoyable for exploration and the enjoyment of our state.

Thanks brother. We try our best to provide economical, safe and reliable scooters so riders can explore the whole of Sabah. This is beneficial to the local small business owners rather than just big commercial companies. Thankfully, we have had many supporters who appreciate the efforts we have put in and encourages us with their support both mentally and financially.
