New Courier were motorcycles produced in 1899 and from 1919 to 1923, originally in Alexander Street, Wolverhampton.

At the end of the nineteenth century a bicycle maker briefly produced motorised tricycles with the name of New Courier.

  • Note: The name 'New Courier' appeared again after the end of World War I, when they produced low-cost alternative models. These were of medium weight with a variety of engine and gearbox combinations, as the frame layout had been specifically designed for a choice of specifications.
