A couple of news articles over the weekend mentioned a police department in Arizona was re-equipping their force with BMW motorcycles, specifically, the BMW 1150 RT-P. I had mentioned the Honda police bike before but I was unfamiliar with this BMW police model so I thought I would check it out. Looks nice.
It has an 1130cc boxer engine, ABS braking system and a huge load of police special accessories, including radar mounts and shotgun mount. LED warning lights, electric height adjustment for the windshield and run flat tires. That’s something I haven’t seen before although they may be a standard police item.
Again, I have to believe Harley Davidson has a lot of competition in this market, much more than before, and from a patrol officer’s view, I would think bikes like these are much preferred over the Harley.
