Riding off the back of a very successful 2018 event, the New Zealand Motorcycle Show is back in 2019 at the ASB Showgrounds.

The show is home to eveyrhitng related to biking. From new Makes/Models, to Classic and modified machinery, it’ll all be here. Not only that, but we’ll have all the latest gear and plenty of show specials to take advantage of.

As always, there’s free bike parking down the alley way, right outside the main pavillion. There were over 1700 bikes during peak hours last year, it’s a full show in itself!

Great product prizes and cash are up for grabs for both individual bikes and club entries so get your entries sorted.

The show remains a charitable fund raising event and all of our profits go back to the community. In 2017 you helped us donate $180,000 to Charity (up from ($140,000 in 2016).

The show is run by the Papakura Rotary Club.

Entries for Individual Bikes or Clubs is very simple. See the page for “Enter Your Bike” or “Enter Your Club” when these become available, fill in the details and we’ll get back to you to confirm. If you’ve got any queries, just use the contact form and we’ll be in touch.
