UK: Police Withdraw Their Honda Pan European Motorcycles

UK Police version of the Honda Pan European ST1300
After a coroner in the UK {link} stated that the Honda Pan European ST1300 used by the UK Police Officers was unsafe at high speeds, the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) in the UK withdrew the motorcycle.

This happened after a Police Officer (David Shreeve) lost control of his motorcycle after developing a violent high-speed wobble resulting his death.

There is no problem with standard Honda Pan European motorcycles, just the Police version, due to the heavy equipment transported (communication and emergency materials), and the different suspension used.

The ACPO will further investigate the motorcycle, and a permanent ruling will be made later this year. Honda is working with the UK Police to find a solution.
