A motorcyclist is dead after crashing near Tauranga this afternoon.

Police said the accident occurred on the Tauranga-bound bypass on State Highway 2 about 1pm.

It appeared the rider on a Honda motorbike had failed to negotiate a moderate bend in the road, striking the kerb and crashing into a bank.

No other vehicles were involved.

The section of road was currently closed traffic with diversions in place.
