A man who died after a collision on Anlaby Road in the early hours of Thursday morning was named locally as Phil Mosley.
Mr. Mosley was riding a Lexmoto Titan 125cc motorcycle, but was launched from it and suffered fatal injuries.
It is believed that he was traveling east on Anlaby Road to the city center when the collision occurred around 3 in the morning.
Mr. Mosley’s family has been informed and supported by officials.
Humberside police closed the road from Park Street to Rawling Way while investigating. The road was reopened at 7.45am.
It is a double tragedy for Muslims after Phil’s brother Peter was tragically found off the east coast of Yorkshire three weeks after he fell overboard from a fishing ship. Read more here.
The father of two was on his Misty Blue fishing boat which had anchored due to a mechanical problem off the coast of Tunstall on July 5 of last year.
After being carried away by the current, a frantic search was conducted involving coastguard crews, lifeboats, search helicopters and a dozen fishing boats.
Unfortunately, the 37-year-old was found nearly three weeks after 25 miles off the coast of Bridlington.
Tributes have been paid to Phil Mosley on the Hull Live Facebook page.
One person said, “Absolutely heartbreaking RIP Phil. Think of all your family and friends in such a heartbreaking moment! Now find your Peter and fly high together.”
Another woman said, “RIP Phil, devastating what your family is going through, reunited with Pete. My thoughts go to Arthur and Chris, this must be so difficult for them xx”
Another also paid tribute to Phil who said, “RIP Phil. You have been an exceptional type and one hell of a thief has always known how to laugh. My thoughts are with your family in this difficult time.”
