Windsor sushi delivered by eBike

A Windsor, Ont. sushi house has started using an eBike to deliver sushi.

According to the Windsor Star,  the Oishii Rock 'n' Roll Sushi Bar now rolls out its products on a specially-designed eBike built for cargo.

Co-owner Mat Mathias says his Thrust Eco-Delivery Electric Bike, made in California, is the first of its kind in Canada. He had it specially delivered to Windsor in time for Bike Month.

He says that the delivery eBike has twice as much torque and Lithium battery power as a standard recreational eBike, and can make deliveries where automobile traffic or other barriers would block a car or van. Also, he says, it can park easier.
