2015/2016 BMW R 1200 R

From: NZD 229 per day

2015 BMW R 1200 R | Motorcycle Hire New Zealand

With its silky, new-generation boxer engine, telescopic upside down forks and a host of standard and optional electronic rider aids the 2015 BMW R1200R enters the modern motorcycling age.

Fully-loaded, it’s as techno-packed as any sportsbike, with all the safety and performance advantages that brings, but it’s still simple and friendly to ride. It’s a classic roadster with a 21st century twist.


  • Thank you for your very professional attitude and friendly nature that has made our adventure something we will never forget. The bikes were fantastic, the accommodation outstanding and we were able to enjoy the ride without the worry of finding accommodation as it was all pre-booked. Mike had also pre-programmed a GPS to guide us along the best motorbike roads possible and get us to our accommodation each day without any hassle. The amazing thing about dealing with Mike and Alison was they even thought of all the little things like having a taxi waiting for us when we arrived at Christchurch airport, made reservations at the Skyline restaurant, pre-booked helicopter flight over the glaciers and suggestions in a printed itinerary of places to eat and sight see. Our experience from first contact right through to when we left the island has been nothing short of outstanding.
