    If you’ve seen the Yamaha Tricity, and thought heck, I’d love to give that bike a try. Then send a message to 3C-Rentals and they are renting the Tricity for only 3850 per month. The unique two wheels at the front (3 wheels overall) of this scooter offer much more stability than a tradition two-wheeled scooter. 3C Rentals also offers fantastic monthly prices with Clicks & Scoopys as low as 1900 baht per month.
