Cranbourne and Mount Waverley DC posties raised the issue of having a smaller seat fitted to the new NBC110 cc motorcycle.
There are two seat options for the current red CT110 cc. The smaller seat is approximately 50mm closer to the ground and this allows shorter statured posties additional reach. Certainly a safety issue if the posties cannot have firm footing when stopped.
The matter was raised by Senior Industrial Officer from the National Office at the National Delivery Forum on 10 July. Post has agreed to contact Honda and investigate the possibility of a smaller fitted seat.
If you have any personal experiences or comments you would like to raise about the seats on either the NBC110 or CT110, please contact the CWU.
