Kawasaki offers police-spec Concours 14
First new Kawasaki police bike since 2005
The Kawasaki Concours 14 ABS Police motorcycle has a number of features designed to meet the needs of law enforcement agencies. Kawasaki gave the police bike a tighter turning radius and equipped each unit with an adjustable speedometer, a second wiring harness with 12 fused circuits and a separate battery dedicated to electronic add-ons.
Like the standard commercial model, the police-spec Concours is available with traction control and ABS brakes. According to Kawasaki, the Concours 14 ABS Police has the quickest acceleration in the law enforcement class with superior high-speed handling. The Concours 14 uses a 1,352cc engine, claiming 156 hp and 102 ft-lb.
Kawasaki is offering a three-year unlimited mileage factory warranty for the police Concours and will also provide training for law enforcement agencies’ maintenance personnel.
The Concours 14 ABS Police will retail from $16,000 to $22,000 per unit, depending on the model year and equipment options. According to Kawasaki, the price represents savings of over $2,000 per unit compared to the BMW R1200RT-P or Harley-Davidson FLHTP police motorcycles. Kawasaki also says complete clutch system replacement for the Concours 14 ABS Police, one of the most common maintenance needs for police bikes, will cost $400 less in parts and labor than the competition.
The Kawasaki Concours 14 ABS Police is already being used by police in Boise, Idaho, Mesa, Ariz., and Woodburn, Ore.
