It's unfair! Police motorcycles should be big, loud and very visible. Not small, electric and totally silent; this will allow the cops to silently creep up to people. Not fair. I vote that all cop bikes are Harley-Davidson with their pipes removed.
Actually, after having tested the Zero Motorcycles , I can understand why the cops in the LAPD are testing it (link ).
|This undated image provided by Zero Motorcycles shows a model posing on an electric motorcycle. Such electric bikes are already used by a growing number of police departments across the country and around the world, including in Bogota, Colombia; Hong Kong, and closer to home, multiple agencies in California as well as New York, North Carolina and Oregon. It’s a different, somewhat sleeker look than the burlier gas-powered BMWs and Harley Davidson’s LA’s police force uses today, but the department hopes the bikes will become a regular sight in its fleet of tomorrow. |
