Motor cycles are still the most popular choice in South Africa for delivering small packages – especially takeaway food! - and play a large part in business deliveries for companies of all sizes.

Almost every company in South Africa owns a delivery two-wheeler of some sort but  Cayenne says its new Cayenne Cargo  is purpose-built so its perhaps a cut above other small-capacity motorcycles that simply have a glass-fibre box bolted over the pillion seat.

The franchise holders says: “The Cayenne Cargo is a complete and factory- designed unit - there are no after-market fittings. The carrier has plenty of branding/advertising space on each side and doubles as a backrest for the driver.

“The box will take a much larger load than the normal unsightly delivery units can be heated for food delivery operators - no more cold food, a common complaint from customers.”

'THE PERFECT UNIT'

The step-in scooter build will protect the driver from the weather and, the company says, and the “super-tough, maintenance-free, single-cylinder 170cc engine has all the torque needed for all-day work”.

Its fuel consumption is listed as 2.9 litres/100km, the tank holds 4.5 litres and the bike weighs only 115kg.

Craig Langton, Cayenne group's dealer principal, said: “At last we’ve found the perfect delivery unit for our customers, a machine that will run at 90km/h all day, every day."

Maximum power is 7.6kW at 7500rpm.

Price: R15 900. For more information call +25 (0)11 244-1900.
