Excellent KTM rental and guidance
Apr 2019 • Solo
Highly recommend renting from Carsten. He took great care of me during my 6 day trip with a KTM 1190 r. He picked me up and dropped me off at hotel, helped me remake itenerary due to weather, and was always available via phone and text for support. Texted me several excellent landmarks to visit and places to stay.

NZ was beautiful and there is never enough time.

South Island in 12 days, 2-up
Feb 2019 • Couples
I am and expat living in Bali and am avid adventure biker. Besides owning bikes here in Indonesia (Africa Twins and a Royal Enfield and single track riding on 390 Husaberg), I rode 2,300km through Mongolia, and more recently, 2,700km in Namibia on a 690 KTM. This is the first time I did an adventure ride with my wife on the back. And after this experience, we are planning more! Carsten was extremely helpful in assisting in planning out NZ trip, and the KTM 1190, with panniers and top box was the perfect bike for 2-up. We arrived in Christchurch and Carsten picked us up and brought us to his home and garage where he keeps his quiver of perfectly maintained KTMs. Our 1190 was sitting ready for us to transfer our gear too and ride off, while safely storing our bags and non-riding items in his secured shop. It could not have been easier. The bike preformed flawlessly. NZ and the ride exceeded our expectations! And Carsten was exceptionally kind and helpful in assisting us when we were on the road when needed. I would rate our total experience with Carsten and Adventure Bike Hire and the ride in NZ at 10! We're already planning a trip back to hit areas we missing on this trip and revisit areas that we couldn't get enough time in. We highly recommend ABH if you are looking to rent a KTM on South Island. I can't imagine you'd be any less satisfied than we were. Thanks Carsten!

Outstanding job!

It is not ordinary for someone to meet expectation let alone surpass. This is exactly what Adv Bike Hire has done. Carsten, the owner, was accommodating friendly and very personable. He made sure we we happy from start to finish. The bikes were all tip top shape needing nothing on a long trip, which says a lot. i would recommend highly his services and wouldn't even consider anyone else. Keep up the good work and thanks again for all you did.

19 days in NZ
Jan 2019 • Friends
3 riders on an a 19 day all New Zealand riding trip used Adventure Bike Hire for our bikes. The bikes were in like new condition and performed flawlessly. Carsten advised us on the planning of routes that was essential to our trip. He guided us on a local ride the last day of our trip around Banks Peninsula that was one of the highlights of the trip. His passion for riding is contagious. We are already planning our next NZ ride for 2021 using Adventure Bike Hire.

AWESOME!!! 8 day NZ Adventure
May 2018 • Solo
My first Adventure bike ride, One of the best life experiences ever, Fantastic bike the KTM 1190R Adventure....handled the road and dirt tracks perfectly...couldn't imagine touring on anything else. bike was flawless, a weapon on the road, and top notch on the gravel roads....Thank you so much Carsten, Originally a spur of the moment decision to hire the bike, but one look through the web site, Adventure bike hire NZ The decision was made...got in contact with Carsten....he was very flexible and informative regarding the hire of the 1190R
The flight was booked, Carsten picked me up from my hotel and he immediately made me feel at ease, regarding the bike, helped me with off road tracks to take. My goal was to see Milford sound. with no set itinerary and travelling solo, the Adventure began.
The ADVENTURE of south Island NZ. Wicked scenery, tracks and roads.
See you next season. Cheers Teremoana O'Carroll, 5 Star operation Carsten

Amazing 7 days in NZ via KTM's!!
Sep 2017 • Friends
Finished a phenomenal 7 day KTM 1190 trip to the South Island which was incredible!

What became a whirlwind ride took us across what seemed the south whole island on what were positively the best bikes we've ever rented! I couldn't imagine a better way to see, smell and experience the countryside, culture and people of New Zealand. We've rented bikes all over the planet from Alaska & Israel to Abu Dhabi and Ethiopia and these were the absolute best bikes and in the best condition of any! (Ethipoia's KTM rentals were the WORST!!)

From the morning we were picked up to the day we were delivered to the airport the service was outstanding and prices were great! Great routes too!!

I strongly recommend this adventure without hesitation!

Excellent, very helpful
Apr 2017 • Solo
I hired an 1190R from Carsten in April, he was very accomodating and helpful. Hiring was easy and streamlined. He offered no nonsense advice and the machine was well prepared. Couldn't have been easier.
My first time on such a beast with the view to buying one. After having a blast for a number of days on a 150hp monster, Carsten kindly let me take his much loved 950 for a quick spin.....I am now the proud owner of a 990...and still his advice flows.
You cant go wrong hiring a bike from him!

30 Days, Awesome Bike, Every Terrain and in a Stunning Country
Feb 2017 • Solo
I rented the 1190 Adventure for 30 days in Feb and March for a solo trip around the South and North Islands (20 days in the south). I was stoked to find the KTM with a company enthusiastic for you to go anywhere. The bike was almost like new, in perfect working order. Carsten provided a service second to none, totally hassle free. He delivered the bike to my hotel, I had no issues the whole ride and he picked it up when I was ready.
This was my first trip to NZ, with his advice and the Remote-moto site it was easy to plan and adapt routes. I filled my boots with loads of ridge lines, gravel and 4x4 tracks between the usual tourist highlights. Coming from the 990 Adventure R, I was impressed by the bike on dirt (only limited by ground clearance) and blasting on the tarmac it was awesome, lots of power and handles great. Riding long days without proper bike fitness was no issue, the comfort was better than a big BMW and it's way more fun.
The South Island is the best, there is so much to explore, I recommend it and Adventure Bike Hire NZ to anyone. Might even see you there. Thanks Carsten and thanks KTM.

Excellent service and assistance when problem occurred
Feb 2017 • Solo
I rented a 690 to ride with my friends on a South Island trip. I've been thinking of buying one so it was a chance to ride before committing to buy. Carsten was incredibly helpful, providing pickup from airport and all the luggage, GPS mount and extras for the trip. Nothing was too much trouble.
There wasn't any problem with taking the bikes off road. Carsten encouraged me to use the bike for what it was designed for. The South Island has an enormous range of off tarmac riding in spectacular scenery,
The 690 developed a fueling problem on my trip. We worked to diagnose the problem on the road but Carsten offered to swap bike. He made a 5 hour trip to replace the 690 with an 1190. I missed a few hours riding but got to experience a different bike for a few days. Fantastic service.
I had a wonderful trip thanks to Adventure Bike Hire NZ.
