Witnesses attempted to perform first aid on the man before paramedics arrived, but he died at the scene.
Alison Street was closed for several hours and parents doing pickups at nearby St Leonards Primary School were told to avoid the area.
The man is the 27th person to die on South Australian roads this year – the seventh in a motorcycle crash.
