Srinagar Bike Rental Rates 2024 – 2025

Srinagar Bike Rental Rates

In this article, I will list down Srinagar Bike Rental Rates for the year 2022-23. If you were planning a trip to either Kashmir or Ladakh this year but cannot bring your own bike, then renting a motorcycle from Srinagar city for the tip is a great option.

Mention below is the per-day cost that you will pay depending on the motorcycle you chose. Apart from the charges, I will also provide a few tips that you should keep in mind while taking a bike out on rent.

For renting a motorcycle in Srinagar, you can contact Faisal at 09596 410 670. Give him my reference and he will give you the best possible rate. I have rented bikes from him several times and was never disappointed with the bike’s performance or the price he quoted.

Srinagar Bike Rental Rates

As a matter of fact, the daily rental in Leh and Srinagar city is almost the same. The only difference however is in terms of the motorcycles you will get. In Leh city, you can easily find bikes like Pulsar and automatic bikes like Scooty and Activa.

In Srinagar city, however, these are not really that commonly available. Only a few rental agencies have automatic scooters available for rent. The rest of them majorly deal in Royal Enfield only.

The contact number I provided above is of a rental agency that has Activa available as well if that is what you were interested in renting.

Rent a Bike in Srinagar

The important thing to note here is that in Ladakh, there is a Ladakh Motorbike Rental Association that all rental agencies work with. The rates that the association decides are standard that anyone will charge you in Leh.

In Srinagar however, there is no association, and every agency has its own bike rates. These however are more or less the same with only a difference of a couple hundred.

This in fact is actually a good thing because there is no association that you got to worry about. You are free to negotiate a deal and the chances of getting one in Srinagar are way high than in Ladakh.

The minimum rental period in Srinagar is one day. There is no half-day rule applicable like in Ladakh. If you take a bike on rent, you take it for an entire day.

Please note that if you are a foreign national, your local driving license issued in your respective country will not do. You must hold an International driving license. Without it, no rental agency will hand you over their motorcycles.

For some agencies, this international driving license will suffice but others may even ask for your passport as well. If you are however an Indian citizen, all that you need to produce is your own permanent driving license.

Mentioned below is a list of motorcycles that are currently available for rent in Srinagar; with their per-day rental. As I mentioned, there is no standard rental association rule as such but all agencies will charge you around the amount I mentioned below.

  • Royal Enfield Himalayan
    Engine Size: 411CC
    Rental: Rs. 2,000 per day
  • Royal Enfield
    Engine Size: 500CC
    Rental: Rs. 1,800 per day
  • Royal Enfield
    Engine Size: 350CC
    Rental: Rs. 1,500 per day
  • Bajaj Avenger
    Engine Size: 220CC
    Rental: Rs.1,300 per day
  • Automatic Bike / Scooty / Aprilia
    Rental: Rs. 800 per day
  • Other Bikes / Pulsar / XPulse
    Engine Size: 150CC to 200CC
    Rental: Rs.1,400 per day approximately

A few things that you do need to keep in mind while renting the motorcycle are as mentioned below.

  • You will have to pay a security amount of Rs. 10,000-15,000 which will be refunded when you return the bike with no damage.
  • An additional Rs. 350 per day will be charged if you want to also rent the riding gear, including the carrier.
  • If you want to get an additional helmet for a pillion rider, that will cost you an additional Rs. 50 to Rs. 100 per day.
  • Raincoats, chargers, etc are not part of the riding gear and will be charged separately.
  • You must hold a valid permanent driving license to rent the motorcycle.
  • If a foreign national, you must have an international driving license.

Bullet on Rent in Srinagar

As you can see from the list above, Royal Enfield is the hot favorite of both rental agencies and customers alike. Depending on which model you chose, renting a Bullet in Srinagar will cost you between Rs. 1,500 to Rs. 2,000 per day. Royal Enfield Himalayan is the costliest of all the models.

Srinagar to Leh Bike Rental

I would definitely recommend renting an Enfield only for the trip. If you were riding solo, then it’s best that you go for a 350CC motorcycle. Renting a 500CC engine is just more power that you will not really need. If you were however with a pillion and all the luggage, I must in that case recommend renting a 500CC Bullet.

Depending on which bike you chose, your Srinagar to Leh Bike rental total will at least be between Rs. 1,300 to Rs. 2,000 per day. Considering that you will need at least 2 days to reach Leh and then at least 2 more days to return, you will be paying about Rs. 6,000 to Rs. 8,000 as rent for 4 days.

Where to Rent a Bike in Srinagar

From my own personal experience, the preferred place to rent a bike would be Kashmir Travelogue.

Kashmir Travelogue- Bike & Motorcycle Rental Firm
Lal Chowk, Srinagar
Phone: 09596 410 670
Contact Name: Faisal

Rates that these guys will offer you would be hard to bear elsewhere in Srinagar. They are highly professional, and humble, and will ensure that you get the best out of your trip, and a total worth of every penny spent.

The riding gear that other agencies will charge you for is Rs. 350 per day, these guys will provide it for free. And their riding gear is quite comprehensive too, way bigger than all others.

Other agencies will charge you about 10000 to 15000 as a security amount. Faisal will charge you only about Rs. 5000. If you give him my reference, he may not even charge you that.

I am planning a bike trip from Srinagar to manali. So, do you know any bike provider who can provide us bike that I can pick at Srinagar and drop in Manali.
I had contacted much more dealers but if we drop the bike in Manali then it is going much more costly as they are changing additional 15k for one bike.
