A celebration of the motorbikes we love and admire

From Vincents and Moto Guzzis to the legendary Britten and the BSA Goldstar 350, Kiwi Bikers captures the love affair New Zealanders have with motorcycles.

From north to south, and from veteran bikes to the latest high performers, this book showcases 85 incredible motorbikes and their passionate owners. Shot by motorbike enthusiast and respected magazine photographer Ken Downie across New Zealand in a major two-year project, the 85 astounding portraits include some of the most famous names in New Zealand motorcycle sport and photo essays of the last-ever Brass Monkey rally, races at Pukekohe, and the Burt Munro Challenge.
