About Us

Experience the difference that dealing with this family owned and operated business will deliver. Kiwi Motorcycle Rentals are passionate about motorcycles and the people that ride them - no matter what you ride!  New Zealand's mild climate means you can ride from September until the end of May comfortably. Generally the most settled weather is during February, March & April.

Brief History - City Motorcycle Rentals was started in 2007 based in Christchurch, New Zealand. In 2014 the business changed its name to Kiwi Motorcycle Rentals as this better reflected the business direction and strategy. Over the years the business thrived with great people and excellent customer service to become one of New Zealand's leading motorcycle rental companies with a fleet of 55 motorcycles. In 2020 life around the world changed, with international borders closed and tourism halted, Kiwi Motorcycle Rentals downsized and had to be put on hold. 2021 has seen a change of ownership and a move back to Christchurch city, with the aim to rebuild and grow again with the same great customer service.

We are now located in a new shop and workshop very close to Christchurch International Airport. We are co-located with our sister company Ultimate Adventure Moto which provides the tours and retail side of the business. 

At Kiwi Motorcycle Rental's we strive to add a personalised approach and willingness to help you with all aspects of your motorbike adventure to ensure that your holiday will be memorable – from the planning stage right through to when you are reflecting on your holiday photos in the years that follow.

With your satisfaction a top priority; Kiwi Motorcycle Rentals will take time to listen to you and understand your needs – making suggestions to match you to the best bike for your ability and the terrain you wish to traverse.

We offer advice for self-guided and personalised tours to ensure that you don’t miss out on any of the highlights of New Zealand. Be sure to use Kiwi Motorcycle Rentals as a travel resource when planning your trip.

Just as important as making sure you see the right sights; is making sure that your adventure is not spoilt by mechanical problems! Regular servicing and safety checks are made immediately prior to your hire. Full servicing is carried out in our winter months, every motorbike in the Kiwi Motorcycle Rental fleet is stripped down, lubed, bolts tightened and the engine is checked and set.

Your motorcycle will be presented to you clean and in perfect working condition. However for added peace-of-mind, all rentals include AA mechanical breakdown Roadside Assistance 24-hours a day, 7-days a week.
