So long BMW cop bikes. We barely knew ye.

I'll bet that the CHP will prefer 1 hour vs 8 hour clutch changes.

"Kawasaki gave the police bike ... an adjustable speedometer,"

Sir, you were going...let's see here...(dial, adjust, dial) 89, no, NINETY ONE miles an hour in a 70 mph zone.

That will be $15,850.00, please.

What does the word "adjustable" mean for the speedo anyway? While calibrating radar guns on I-10 you can make sure your bike is going as fast as the radar on your buddy's motor unit says?.?.?.

Most-likely they meant "RECalibrate-able", rather than merely "adjustable". Sure, there are lots of things I can "adjust" on the fuel-train and primary-air controls of a Scotch-Marine boiler - but I leave that to the guy I pay real good money to tune the damn thing.

Your typical speedometer is definitely "non-adjustable", no matter HOW far off it is.

That's a pretty good looking machine!

I wonder if Ponch and Jon could catch a Volkwagen minivan any quicker than it took them on their old 900's? IIRC, it took two commercial breaks for them to get that guy.

Default Kawasaki does not make a police bike!!!!!

Kawasaki does not make a police motorcycle!!!!! The bike is outfitted by two different companies with a police package. One company out of Mesa,AZ called Probity Cycle Inc. makes the package called the ZG1400 Enforcer Police package. The other company out of Post Falls,ID. called Beaudry Motorsports makes the Interceptor police package. Both packages use all Whelen lights. The Enforcer package has custom made drop bars that fully protect the bike, a custom fiberglass radio box, and integrated lights in the headlamp and mirrors. every component is in house. The Interceptor package has light pods, metal radio box and MC Enterprise guard bars, which is the one you see on the Kawasaki web page. Here is the Probity Enforcer page link.Probity Cycle Inc.
