Terms & Policies



All our rental motorcycles meet all legal requirements for riding on New Zealand public roads. They have a certificate of fitness as required by NZ Transport Agency for rental vehicles. We use very good quality tyres on our fleet of bikes, these are replaced regularly to ensure hirers have the best riding experience.

All our rental motorcycles are less than 4 years old, maintained to a strict schedule and inspected prior to each hire. In the unlikely event any mechanical issues, on short term hires (1/2 or 1 day) we bring out a replacement machine as soon as possible, and allow a later return.  In the case of a puncture we will replace the affected wheel.


Motorcycle insurance is included in the rental rates, with a standard rider excess of NZ$2000. It covers damage to the motorcycle, fire and theft only, plus damage to third party property. 


For hires rider minimum age is 25 years old (unless you can convince us otherwise -give it a try) and must hold restricted or full license.  Younger riders and learners licence is acceptable by exception on a tour, however we do not hire motorcycles to under 25s or learners unless on a guided tour so we can provide supervision.
