A fire engine from Truro along with a rescue tender from Camborne attended the scene.
Officers were yesterday continuing to piece together how the accident happened and a file was being prepared for the coroner.
A police spokesman last night said: "The male rider of the motorcycle was pronounced dead at the scene.
"Next of kin have been informed but we will not be releasing details of identity until formal identification procedures are completed."
