Police had received the report of the crash at the intersection of Rimu Road and Oregon Drive at 11am.
"Emergency services attended but sadly the motorcyclist died at the scene," a Police spokesperson says.
The crash forced the closure of the road for several hours while the Serious Crash Unit conducted a scene examination.
The road later re-opened shortly after 2pm.
