V8 Trike Tours
Welcome to V8 Trike Tours, New Zealand - Voted the TOP 10% Attraction Worldwide!
Join us for a unique and thrilling experience on a V8 Chevrolet trike as we explore the beautiful Bay of Plenty. Designed and built in New Zealand, our trikes are powered by 5700cc Chevrolet motors. It’s the ultimate in power and excitement. With a low centre of gravity, our trikes provide a smooth ride with an impressive grip around corners.
Buckle up and get ready to see the beautiful Bay of Plenty in the
best way possible.
Our scenic rides take you on a tour of the golden beaches and multi-million dollar houses. We’ll ride through Mount Maunganui, Tauranga City and out to the scenic lookouts across the Bay of Plenty.
Our drivers are also your guide. They conduct an informative drive around downtown Mount Maunganui and Tauranga City covering local knowledge, history and culture. Our drivers will also be able to provide additional information at the various photo-op stops and answer any questions you may have.
If you’re looking for something a little different, we’ve got you covered. We believe that fun is for all ages and your number shouldn’t get in the way of excitement. Whether you’re two-years-old or 102, we will do everything to make sure you enjoy yourself. Our trikes are also suitable for those with a disability or special needs as they are low to the ground and are easily accessible for those in a wheelchair. The rides are safe, stimulating and fun for everyone.
We have three vehicles in our fleet to cater for 10 passengers. There are two trikes with four passenger seats and one trike with two passenger seats.
Helmets are not required. Our trikes are registered with the New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) as cars, not motorbikes, so three-point seatbelts must be worn at all times.

Kathryn and Nigel embarked on this adventure in 2015, after moving from the UK to New Zealand. It was a big transition from owning and operating a large coach company to the awesome V8 Chevrolet trikes. What grew from a passion has seen V8 Trike Tours New Zealand become one of the Bay's must-do attractions for tourists and locals alike. Nothing makes the pair happier than hearing “wow, that was the highlight of our holiday” at the end of a ride.
