Since the 1980s, the Australia Post has counted on the Honda CT110 to deliver letters across the continent. Simon Williams thinks it's about time for a change.

Williams, who invented the Deliver-E (say it out loud), thinks he's created the trike to replace the CT110 as Australia's "Postie Bike." With a pair of electric motors propelling the Deliver-E trike to to a top speed of 50 miles per hour and the ability to run for 40 miles on a full charge, inventor, he might be right. Williams believes that the Deliver-E's stability, off-road ability, standard reverse gear and safety makes its far superior to the now-infamous CT110.

The Deliver-E's pivoting rear swing arms allow the trike to tackle small obstacles with ease and lessen the impact felt when hitting potholes. Williams says that the swingarms help the bike carve through corners and hop curbs.

There is one little problem before the Deliver-E brings postal goodness to people across Australia: money. To that end, Williams is looking to secure funding to turn his electrified postal machine into something more than just a dream.

      funny enough concept. let's see it in operation.

      not sure the design compares favorably to a normal bike with a clever stand

        sorry, post 3 was in response to some crazy spam.

        Inventor actually invents something useful and displays it proudly.

        Enter a Grampus snuffling enviously, expresses a few supercilious and ignorant remarks, and grumbles off, negatively.

        marco, whatever a grampus is, you are describing yourself. I offered honest accurate observation on the story and you come rushing out from under your bridge as the bitter mindless troll you are.
        you did the same when I pointed out the error in the porsche article, I was so wrong and negative according to you yet ABG corrected the article. of course I was right. but you don't want to talk about that. you just want to rush on to your next vile outburst.

        you can have such a mind too. if you turn away from the dark side.

        Ah Hah, the Grampus rants! But sadly, not up to the standard of the previous rants.

        DF, aside from your claim that the 9/11 attack was a fake perpetrated by the US government, I still think that the following is the best of your rants....

        [quote]there can only be peace in truth. if you were christian as you may think you are, you would know Jesus and his spirit and that is one of truth without pride. face your error, only then will you be clean. only then can we be friends.
        if you can show yourself to be reasonable in this matter I shall show you how I am also right in the matter of aerodynamics and weight. I shall show you specific designs and concepts and relevant elements of knowledge and inference.
        I am a computer scientist, specialized in artificial intelligence. I know mechanical engineering as well as electrical engineering to the point of being able to make the power in EVs. I have a wonderful glacial mind and I was right all along and you were wrong.[/quote]

        I especially liked the wonderful glacial mind!

      Idiots aside, this is a seriously good idea.

      Aussi Post rejected the VX1 Vectrix because I was to heavy for female riders, and the V-moto because...Well it was a Vmoto.

      But this looks very promising indeed! I have followed the creation of this bike on the AEVA website and it seems to be a very well thought out idea.

      Good luck with Australia Post.
