A motorcyclist has died in a crash in the Central Otago town of Cromwell.

The man died at the scene of the crash near the intersection of Partridge and Shortcut Roads about 6am on Thursday, police say.

"At this stage it is to early to speculate on cause of the crash," Senior Sergeant Ian Kerrisk said in a short statement.

Diversions are in place and Shortcut Rd is likely to remain closed for some time while police investigate.

The death brings the Christmas holiday road toll to 12.
