4 Rarest Police Classic Motorcycles

Since long times ago the police motorcycle generally use big capacity engines. Even now that condition has not changed much. Of course this is something special, because most accessories/special component of police motorcycle is very special or due to the use of police motorcycles based on a special need.

As in America, where the police riding a Harley-Davidson or Kawasaki. While in Europe, BMW motorcycles earn trust as a police patrol fleet. Not only fast, but the performance and acceleration are also the first-class.

But we will discuss this time is not the police fleet based modern motorcycles, but a fleet of classic motorcycle. It was looks and counts from the population can be said to super rare. Are you curious? Here are the list:

1. 1941 Indian Four Police Special
Indian, a motorcycle manufacturer has long involved the police motorbike production that begins with the Ace Four types in 1928. This bike was the one of the American police favorite motorcycles and then up grade into a Police Special. This bike uses a 4-cylinder engine that has a capacity of 1,265 cc, and be able to driving with a maximum speed of 144 kph.

This bike is also equipped with strobe lights and sirens which driven by the front wheel rotation. The average speed as generally four wheel drive in that time, still below the 100 kph. And so, the Indian Four Police Special bikes much use as the city patrol rather than for chasing the criminals.

After a few years makes the Police Special, Indian start developing their product. This time they glance at twin engine format, as used by Harley-Davidson. And then both motorcycle manufacturers become the backbone of the American police for the motorcycles fleet procurement.


2. 1949-1966 Triumph 6T 650 Thunderbird 650
The Triumph 6T 650 Thunderbird was loved by police around the world who ever been use it. Because at the time they could be riding this motorcycle with speed up to 161 kph. Naturally, because this motor was the work of Edward Turner and Jack Wickes, the racing bikes tuner in the Triumph-racing team.
1950 Triumph 6T 650 Thunderbird. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/1ttOLhP)
In fact, when it first launched in September 1949 and ended in 1966, the motorcycle's speed is still about 149 kph. In order to suit the American market, its 650 cc engine was repaired and eventually capable of driving up to 161 kph. With that ability, some other state police also began to snap it for their fleets.

With time, its achievement was not exactly recorded as the reliable and tough police fleets, but becomes a winner on the racecourse. This is evidenced by the development of multiple versions of Thunderbird which ruled the motorcycle racetrack, including the TR5, the champion of AMC Racing 'Class C' to 1969. 

3. Norton 500 cc + Sidecar
To found the Norton police motorcycle version may be difficult. In the UK too, the origin of this brands may be called nothing. The reason, the Norton with side-car models is only used by the Hong Kong police. And Hong Kong  in that time were under the British protectorate.

Conversely, if we sought the racing version of Norton 500 cc was easier to find. Where the 1950s was the era of racing event, especially in Europe. No wonder if this variant was the one of competitors of Gilera 500 cc in that time.

The appointment of Norton as the police motorcycles thanks to engine performance and responsive acceleration. The addition of 'side-car' to be more adequate as the neighborhood patrol vehicle.

With the standard version there was virtually no difference. There are striking differences in the color of the body as well as the Police's accessories and the word 'police', in addition to the 'side-car' attached. Unfortunately, there are no official records on the number of units of the police's version of Norton 500 cc.

4. 1966 Honda CB450 Police Special
In the 1960s, if you see one of these motorcycles in the streets of America with a flash of red light that lights up on the side of the bikes, there is a possibility you are being chased by police officers.

There is no public who had this bike other than the police. A total of 25 units of Honda CB450 Police Special imported from Japan to America. The goal is to smooth the law enforcement task in there.

Actually the CB450 Police Special similar to the CB450 production in 1955. Both the engine composition and body format. The most striking difference is the police's fleet is equipped with the police accessory therefore it called the Honda CB450 Police Special.

Unfortunately, the CB450 Police Special failed to perform the task. Not because the specifications are not adequate, but in that time the Harley-Davidson varian so dominating. Finally, the 25 units is the total number of the Honda CB450 Police Special in America.*** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | AMA MOTORCYCLE HALL OF FAME]

Another 7 coolest Police Supercars

American and Canadian Police force have the world's greatest patrolmen. In addition to highly focused training methods, also has many sophisticated patrol car specifications. No wonder if the American and Canadian police officers have the courage to conduct the high speed pursuing action against illegal racers, car thieves or criminals on the streets.

This sparked some countries to undertake similar method, by giving the advanced sports cars to their police force. Here we summarize 7 supercool police cars from all over the world,

7. Mazda RX-8
Like any modern police force, the Keisatsu (Japanese police force)  have a tremendous amount of equipment. Unlike the United States, where most police cars are one of just two or three common types of sedan, the Japanese use an astonishing variety of cars, each especially suited to a specific role.

Ranging from Honda (Acura) NSX, Nissan Skyline GT-R, Mitsubishi GTO (300 GT) and finally they were use Mazda RX-8. The next generation of the RX-7 can be driven up to 234 kph by using a machine that is able to generate power of 290 horsepower.

6. Mitsubishi Evolution X
British police are the lucky one who got the latest Mitsubishi Lancer Evo car. Mitsubishi Evolution X officially became the British patrol cars, although the Road Crime Unit (RCU) of South Yorkshire Police has been used the Mitsubishi Evolution X that could be driven up to 228 kph as it uses an engine that capable of generating power up to 291 horsepower.

The Road Crime Unit of the South Yorkshire Police will use the Evolution X radio cars, along side a fleet of Evolution VIII and IX police cars, to trap speeders. In addition to the speed, the style and the scary image it presented in your rear-view mirror, the cars come equipped with the new Automated Number Plate Recognition system. The Evos will "hunt" in packs of three in order to provide a deterrent for anyone in the mood to end up on the BBC News.

5. Porsche Panamera
The first car Porsche has donated to police in Australia is powered by a regular 3.6-litre V6 – rather than a twin-turbo engine reserved for its thoroughbred machines. The car is the slowest amongst the Porsche car catalogue. The base model Porsche Panamera accelerates to 100 kph in a leisurely 6.3 seconds and a top speed of 259 kph.

The police Porsche will be equipped with temporary lights and sirens to stop traffic if required, but not radar equipment to catch speeders. The $200,000-plus Panamera will primarily be used as a community liaison vehicle within the Crime Management Unit of NSW Police – not the highway patrol.

4. Porsche Cayenne
Porsche Cayenne is a five-seat luxury car made ​​in 2002 by the German company, Porsche. The Cayenne car using the first technology of V8 engine which are applied by Porsche since 1995. This engine could be generate power of 300 horsepower.

Not only the German, Russian police force recorded using the Porsche Cayenne as their police patrol vehicles. Porsche Cayenne has a top speed of 142 kph, and is considered to be pretty tough car to explore the corners of the city in Russia.

3. Dodge Challenger SRT-8
In what might be one of the coolest police cars ever, the Edmonton Police Department, Alberta, Canada unveiled a 2009 Dodge Challenger SRT-8 Police car complete with a roll cage with swing out bars, flashing lights and three-tone paint job.

The Challenger will become a member of the EPS street legal team to help educate drivers about the dangers of illegal street racing and to promote healthy competition at legal racing venues.  The Challenger police car has been shown at the 2009 Edmonton Motor Show.

2. Spyker C8 Spyder
And then, there was a Spyker C8 Spyder is specially created for Frevoland police in the Netherlands. The C8 is a hand built roadster built by Spyker and powered by an Audi 4.2L V8, which is capable of producing output power of 400 hp and could be pushed to speeds up to 300 kph. There are several different flavors starting with a 400 hp version capable of reaching speeds of up to 300 kph moving up to the C8 Double 12S, a street legal version of the Le Mans C8 with an optional 600 hp engine.

A more expensive and powerful version, labelled the C12 because of its W12 engine, was also developed recently but considering the €215,000 starting price for just the V8 version, we bet that the police version is the lesser C8 model. This is just the latest high-end performance car to be turned over to crime fighting forces.

1. Hummer H2
German automotive performance house GeigerCar specialises in American cars and outrageous one-offs, and is hence accustomed to unusual customer requests. So the request from a Texas sheriff to turn his personal emergency vehicle into the world’s fastest police Hummer represented a special challenge and one which was approached with pride.

This is the Hummer H2 which is used by U.S. sheriff in the Texas state. With a supercharged 7.0-liter compressor engine-powered up to 700 hp, the big car can accelerate from rest to 100 km per hour in 6.5 seconds and has a maximum speed of 250 km per hour. Be careful for those of you who like to deal with the police, especially in the state of Texas.
