Electric versus postie bike

Posted by admin on January 4, 2011

Continuing our comparison of various forms of transport, I thought we'd take a look at postie bikes.  The Honda CT110 is a great little motorbike that is small and agile and easy to handle.  It's perfect for small trips around town, but can also manage 80kph (just) on bigger roads.  Let's look at some figures.

Honda CT110 Postie Bike

Price: $1200 (secondhand)

Running costs: $280/year rego (in Tasmania)

                       $125/year comprehensive insurance (from NRMA, 3rd party isn't much cheaper)

                       $? maintenance

                       $2.15/100km (based on 60km/L)

Emissions: 3.8 kgCO2-eq/100km
