Buying a new scooter in Hanoi.

I'm planning on staying for awhile and just moved to Hanoi on a year long tourist visa.

I want to buy a new Honda PCX or Kymco scooter as a foreigner, what are my options?

I have a Vietnamese friend that I can register it in their name but I also heard you're not allowed to own scooters that belong to other people if you get in trouble.

Thanks.

Just het paper what say you are allowed to use that bike, that law is really stupid....  plus nobody cares ;)

It's not true, just a rumor.
feel free to get a scooter in your own name or other's

Not as easy as you make out. Getting it in a foreigners name is more trouble than it's worth.
