Motorbike rental in Chile?


we are planning to visit Chile from 5th to 30th of December, me and my girlfriend. We would like to travel around by motorbikes, unfortunately we are not able to google up some motorbike renting shops with reasonable prices, so far we have found only prices starting at 80 USD/day, which is a bit too expensive for us, as we know that cars can be rented for approx. 25 USD/day!

Can anyone recommend some better rental shop? Or suggest some better way for such a trip? The bikes do not have to be brand new, they just have to reliably survive our short trip.

Thanks for any advice.

I'm from Chile.... and I think here rent a bike its only for wealthy people.

80 dolars a day it cheap, I belive..... probably you will only find BMW's and Harleys for rent...and here those are luxury.

but...anyway.... what are you looking for....lets see if I can find something.

buenas rutas!
