Upon advanced request we can provide a bike upgrade for the tour.
Upgrade Bikes available are Yamaha, KTM 200, KTM 250, KTM 300 (Enduro 2 stroke), KTM 450, or Honda CRF 250X & 450 all models are 2007, 2008, and 2009.
The upgrade price will be an extra $500 for the week tour, $300 for the 3 day tour.
Upgrade Bike insurance is $250 either for the week tour or the 3 day tour.
We don’t do bike upgrade for less than the 3 day tour.
The bike upgrade payment will be done in cash in Costa Rica before the start of the tour, also the insurance needs to be paid in cash before the start of the tour here in Costa Rica.
The upgrade bikes have very limited spares available in Costa Rica, so we don’t carry spares for the bikes. Therefore if something breaks, even the insurance covers it, we won't have replacement parts on the truck to complete repairs. If a mechanical failure occurs on an upgrade bike that makes the bike not functional, you will be required to complete the tour on a Honda XR400.
After all of our operating experience in Costa Rica, we continue to believe that the Honda XR 400 is the best bike for Costa Rica, power delivery is smooth, suspension is plush and the motor is super reliable. We know that some of our customers are eager to ride Costa Rica on the most modern equipment available and that is why we are now offering a bike upgrade program.
If you choose to opt for a bike upgrade please contact Larry directly in Costa Rica via e-mail so that he can start to make the arrangements:
