About Us

The Motubikes (‘Motu’ translates from te Reo Maori as ‘island’) concept is centered around being a very low environmental impact business while still offering a fun and exciting alternate means of travel around one of NZ’s most stunning natural environments. 


We are located a minute walk from Claris Airport, however we can deliver bikes or pick people up from all over the island - so if you are visiting by ferry or cruised over on a boat, you won’t miss out!​

Located a short 30min scenic flight from Auckland or a 4hr ferry cruise, Aotea might as well be on a different planet from the city.


Off grid, wild and beautiful, it is a place to go to unwind and experience nature. For more information about Aotea/Great Barrier Island please visit: www.greatbarrier.co.nz, or get in touch to talk about places to go and things to see and do while you're here!

Motubikes is powered by UBCO bikes - a New Zealand company which began by offering an electric two wheel drive motorbike to farmers and is now taking on the world stage.


In classic NZ innovation fashion they are designed to be simple, reliable and robust. For more information about UBCO, visit their website:​ www.ubcobikes.com
