The motorcyclist died at the scene following the crash on SH35 opposite the Raukokore Marae near Te Kaha at about 2.30pm on Saturday.

Detective Inspector Lew Warner said after an initial investigation by the Serious Crash Unit, the collision was now considered suspicious.

Police are calling for sightings of a white Honda Odyssey-type van driving in the area between 2pm and 3pm on Saturday.
