Honda ending Postie line?

I received an email from a bike shop saying Honda have discontinued the CT110 Postie bike

Could this possibly be true?

Given the demand for the little postie bike with assorted postal services I can't see why Honda would be finishing them off.

They've been around so long that the cost of "upgrading" the next run of them would be next to nothing in dollar terms, Honda couldn't possibly lose money on them.

My first ever motorcycle was a used CT90 postie bike bought in 1970 and almost nothing, other than a slightly larger capacity cylinder, has changed since then.

Around my way(Sutherland Shire) there was talk of the posties moving to a "greener" alternative. Rumour is that they maybe going to electric assisted pushies or some such.

Coud be just rumour. Time will tell.

Cheers

The electric pushies are all ready in the work place. Their collecting dust at our centre. The rumour at work was big upgrades like front disk brake and fuel injection or the other one was some kind of scooter replacement

Thats going to be a bit hard because I am going to win the $100m and buy up all the DR650s in the world...

And then every morning I shall have one delivered to your front door until you admit that you are actually the biggest DR650 fan in history.
