Since Vespa’s first graced the streets of Italy and countless movies like Roman Holiday, Vespa’s have been identified with style and elegance. Now years later as a world-wide renowned icon we all know that no other bike is as cool as a Vespa. But there is more to it.
In Siem Reap we only use new Vespa’s that also offer the latest technology in emission reduction. The four stroke engines of our Vespa’s are of the high-tech Low Emission Advanced Engine Range (LEADER) family.
Unlike any other scooters and motorbikes on the Siem Reap roads our Vespa’s are all certified to comply with the strict Euro 3emission standards.
As part of our typical equipment all our Vespa’s have back rests, which allow you to sit back and relax without having to worry about anything.
It is a great device to keep children and elderly alike safe and comfortable for the whole ride. Many of our guests even take photos from the back of the bikes. Helmets are another standard feature and all guests are issued helmets, of course.
Safety is at the core of everything we do. All our drivers are first carefully screened and once they make the cut they undergo a very intensive training period before they join tours.
Part of the main activities of Akim is to lead the training sessions and to make sure that all drivers fully adopt our strict safety standards.
Sometimes we navigate country paths or even the bottom of a dried-out lake. That is when the Vespa comes into its own, because the wide rear tires make for a smooth ride and give plenty of traction when it’s needed. We have had feedback that even very tall or weighty guests are always comfortable. The Siem Reap weather can be a factor and because we are in the tropics our guests are always encouraged to drink as much as they need. Many guests bring sunscreen and headgear on the day tours. And for when it rains we have excellent, large raincoats (poncho type) available that fit anyone. You are well protected and it definitely adds to the tropical experience. For GoPro aficionado’s helmets with mounts are available!
We care about your safety and comfort and also like to cruise in style!
