Hi, we are Mitch and Nick and welcome to Motorcycle Rentals New Zealand (MCRNZ). MCRNZ came about after Mitch had a not so pleasurable experience trying to hire a bike in Auckland during 2017.

Over the Christmas break at a lovely beach on the Coromandel Peninsula. While having a few beers and discussing Mitch’s poor rental experience. We came up with the concept of running a boutique motorcycle rental company that offers fantastic customer service.

Our aim is to primarily cater to the overseas tourists visiting this great country of ours. So they can experience what New Zealand has to offer while on two wheels.

Mechanical Background

Mitch and Nick both have a mechanical background having both been mechanics in the New Zealand Army many years ago.  They have also been around motorbikes and cars most of their lives and both still actively trail ride with their friends and family when time allows. That is in between kids sports and other activities, but enough about us and more about why you should use Motorcycle Rentals New Zealand.

Oh, and if you find yourself over on the Coromandel while you are exploring our great country on one of our MT-09 Tracers, give us a call you never know we might have a BBQ and cold beer waiting for you.



Rent a Yamaha MT-09 Tracer from Motorcycle Rentals New Zealand and you know you will be getting a bike that has been serviced to the highest standards by highly trained technicians at our local Yamaha Dealership.

Our Yamaha MT-09 Tracers each go through a detailed check before being rented to our customers. Be it the tyres, brakes, clutch, engine fluids, chain, electric system or accessories – our checklists don’t leave anything to chance. If the rental motorcycle isn’t in 100% working order, it won’t be rented.



Like we said, the concept for Motorcycle Rentals New Zealand came from a bad rental experience. So we never want that for our customers.

We will bend over backwards to ensure your experience of renting a bike from us is pleasurable and hassle-free.

From easy to navigate website and online booking. To picking up the bike and enjoying all you can in this great little country of ours.

If we can help with anything just ask, and hey we might not know the answer straight away but we’ll do the best to find out.

If it is where to stay or what to see we will endeavor to point you in the right direction. So you have an awesome stay here in New Zealand.

What our customers have to say 

  • Great service from Nick. I was able to book the bike hire without any problems from the UK before Jons trip to NZ and then when his pal Dave joined him, Nick provided a further bike. The roads were amazing and the experience was a must-do for motorbike enthusiasts!! Thanks Nick.

  • First time visiting New Zealand, so decided to hire a MT09 Tracer through MCRNZ. Price was reasonable considering it includes insurance, roadside assistance, unlimited k's (most important) and prepaid tolls. Picking up the bike was smooth and easy, it was pretty much brand new. Beautifully handling bike, great for North Island's backroads. Would highly recommend Nick and his team if you're looking at renting a motorcycle in NZ.

  • Excellent service an almost new bike. The initial paperwork was done very quickly as we had sent Nick a photo of my driver's license via mail already. My wife and I spent 1 week riding on a Yamaha Tracer MT09 staffed with side panniers and a top case. The motorcycle is also equipped with a smartphone holder and USB plug which makes navigating and charging the phone easy. Nick did everything to make it as comfortable as possible for us! Thanks again! We can only highly recommend renting a motorcycle from Nick.

  • Excellent experience with Motorcycle Rentals New Zealand! Nick and Mitch made everything possible to make my road trip as smooth and comfortable as possible. The motorbike is in perfect condition (MT-09 Tracer, 2018), well equipped with side panniers and top case, as well as a smartphone holder with USB plug which made the navigation really easy. The motorbike is economic. you can easily ride 350km without refueling. Plus, this motorbike suits perfectly with NZ country, national roads and highways. I highly recommend renting from Motorcycle Rentals New Zealand. Thank you Nick and Mitch for the warm welcome from arrival to return.

  • Excellent service from Nick. A beautiful bike which ran faultlessly through the Coromandel and East Cape. Best motorcycle holiday yet and will certainly use MCRNZ again.

    Stephen McGowan
  • Beyond and above customer service! What can I say? Contact with Nick was great, The motorcycle was almost new, I've been given a few advice and tips about NZ's roads and Police patrols. I'm already planning to come back to NZ and if I'll choose to rent a bike again I'm sure I will choose MCRNZ! Nick, thank you so much again for everything (including the pick-up and drop off at the airport).

  • My mate, Ken and I, hired two Yamaha MT09 Tracers from Motorcycle Rentals New Zealand (MCRNZ) for a tour of the North Island in February 2020. During the 2 weeks, we travelled 3327 kms. The service from Mitch and Nick was exceptional. They offered helpful suggestions regarding our itinerary, some accommodation recommendations, picked us up at the airport on arrival, and provided transport to and from our motel to their office. The bikes were perfect or NZ roads and traffic. Light enough to carve through the endless corners with ease as well as having plenty of power to easily overtake the inevitable logging trucks and RV’s. Panniers and a top box provided heaps of storage for clothes, wet weather gear, and other items. Mitch and/or Nick were always only a phone call away, which proved very handy for a quick seat adjustment on Day 2. Their hire price was very competitive especially as it included comprehensive insurance and 24/7 assist. The bikes were in excellent condition. Would we rent from them again? Definitely yes!
