Australia Post is in the process of renewing its fleet of postal delivery bikes, and the humble red ‘postie bike’ that has become something of an Australian icon will soon be no more.

The traditional CT110 models have been supplied by Honda to Australia Post for decades and have achieved cult status amongst enthusiast groups, delivery companies and amateur bike racers.

Soon, red postie bikes sporting orange mail bags will be replaced by a light grey and green design with fluorescent yellow mail bags.

The CT110 is being replaced with the more modern Honda Super Cub (Honda NBC110); a single-cylinder step-through design that introduces electric start and electronic fuel injection to Australia Post for the first time.

The organisation's motorcycles are ordinarily replaced after three years and/or 25,000km, at which point most are sent to auction.

Of the ones that aren’t, some are donated to charitable causes by Australia Post, such as the annual Gibb River Ride in Western Australia, which raises money for brain cancer research.

The roll-out of new bikes began in April, so there’s every chance you’ll see one around your neighbourhood soon.
