About us

If you’re mad about motorcycles, you’ve come to the right place

At Darbi we’re passionate about riding, it doesn’t matter whether it’s street, touring or off-road, we love it.

We’re lucky that we get to try out some of the best motorcycle gear and accessories available anywhere in the world. Every single piece of gear is tested, and when we say tested, we mean taking it to the limit, so that we can be confident that it’s right for New Zealand conditions and will satisfy even the most demanding Kiwi biker.

The driving force behind Darbi is a passion for the very best motorcycle gear & accessories. We like to call this our ‘MOTOVATION’. So if you’re like us and expect the very best, why not explore the rest of this website and get Motovated.


Steve Bridge, Managing Director of Darbi says:

 “Darbi is a leading distributor of motorcycle gear and accessories in New Zealand. We’re a Kiwi business and have been around since 1969, when we first imported Yuasa batteries into New Zealand. Today we’re still run by the same family. Everyone who works at Darbi is passionate about motorcycling – just as our retail partners are, you have to be if you’re in the motorcycle business. Why else would you work in the business if you didn’t love motorcycling?

We’re proud of the fact we distribute some of the finest motorcycle gear brands in the world, with names like: SIDI, HJC, MOTODRY, D.I.D & ACERBIS and many others. But we’re always looking to discover other exciting and innovative new products to offer our customers, which is why we go to the big expo’s and shows in the USA and Europe.

Outstanding customer service is vitally important to us, so we’ve invested in the best systems, processes and training to make things as easy as possible and support our customers. Of course we’re always looking to improve, so if there’s anything we can do to make life easier for our customers, you only need to let us know.
