New Zealand Motorcycle Rentals

I just wanted to thank you …. for providing such a well-fettled BMW 650GS. It clocked up 5,500 kms with no oil top-up and no chain adjustment required. The weather was good too!

Jeff Hawkes, UK, 2010

Thanks to you and your team for arranging our bike hire, it couldn't have been easier. Bikes were fabulous. I am sure we will be back in touch in the future but thanks again. I will certainly recommend you guys.

Jean & Nick, UK 2016

Because New Zealand offers such a choice of scenery, riding conditions and distractions, our fly-ride programme offers an unbeatable range of motorcycles to suit all riders. If you like the freedom to go as you please then this is the option for you, all at the best possible price. We’ve just done all your hard work for you! The same motorcycles are also available for our tours – see the tours section.

For all rentals, we can arrange accommodation pre-and post-tour to allow you time to recover from or wait for international flights. Please ask us at time of booking. And don’t forget to ask us for the all-important travel insurance and a flight quote!
