About Forbes & Davies

Forbes & Davies (NZ) Ltd is one of New Zealand's oldest and largest, wholesale distributors of tyres, accessories, apparel and aftermarket parts for the motorcycle and powersports industry. The company first started trading in 1947 as Motor Imports Wholesale Ltd.

Forbes & Davies operates out of two modern warehouses. Our main warehouse (19,000 sq ft) and head office is based in Glenfield, Auckland and our South Island branch warehouse (12,000 sq ft) is in Rolleston, Christchurch.

We stock and sell a wide range of accessories for street, off road motorcycles and ATVs, as well as the accessories and apparel needed by the people that ride them. Our range includes some of the world's top brands including METZELER Motorcycle Tyres, MAXIMA Racing Oils, FORMA Boots, MACNA Riding Gear, BULL-IT Jeans, FFM Helmets, NEO Motorcycle Clothing, MUC-OFF Bike Care, EKS BRAND Goggles, NEKEN Handlebars, AIRFLAPS Ventilation System, and MAXI GRIP Tyres.

We do not sell direct to the public, but have a network of hundreds of dealers throughout New Zealand and the Pacific Islands. Chances are that your local motorcycle, watercraft or cycle dealer already stocks our products. You can also ask to see our catalogue at your local dealer. If they don't have the catalogued item you are looking for in stock, they will be able to get it within a couple of days.
