South Africa Rent/Buy

I’m looking to rent or buy a motorcycle to use in South Africa and Namibia this winter, any suggestions?
In India I’ve used a buy back scheme, do they exist in SA ?
Cheers

My suggestion is to contact the bike rental companies for instance "Samatours" or "Karoo Biking" or BMW Motorrad for used bikes. But I presume they rather sell their bikes after the main season, that is in April to June.


You can check the South African bike forum Login
or check the trading sites for used bike like Ananzani, Gumtree or CarTraders etc.


Good luck!

Hi Mpark1010, were you able to buy a bike in South Africa ? I have similar plans for later this year (2024) . Turns out one needs a TRN (Traffic Register Number) to register the bike in your name as a foreigner there.

If you did manage to buy, Any pointers on is how to get the TRN would be hugely appreciated. Assuming you too had no local contacts and stayed in a hotel / airBnB.
Thanks,
makalu

A bit off-topic, however I was under the impression that buying in India is not permitted, even for Indian citizens who are non-resident.

I'd appreciate insight into how you were able to buy in India.
