Officers attended a road traffic collision in Monnow Way, Bettws at around 3.40pm on Wednesday 25 January.
Paramedics confirmed that the rider, a 23-year-old man from the Newport area, had died at the scene.
He can now be named as Joshua Stock.
His family have issued the following tribute to him:
“Josh was a kind, loving and caring person. He was devoted to his family and was a full-time carer to his much-loved grandmother, Judith, visiting and caring for her every day.
“Josh was a real joker and prankster with a wicked and very dry sense of humour. He would go out of his way to make people smile and laugh even during the worst of times.
“He was happy go lucky and always found time to help his friends.
“We are grateful for all the kind messages of love and support but ask for time to grieve as a family together in peace.”
His next of kin continue to receive support from specialist officers.
