Motor Unit

All Officers are required to complete a 5 day Police Motorcycle Training course held by the Municipal Police Training Committee which certifies them in Police Motorcycle Operations.

APD currently owns and operates 2 BMW F 650 GS-P motorcycles designated MC1 and MC2.

The F 650 GS-P sets a new standard for agile, multi-terrain motors. This is the first manufacturer-certified police motor in this displacement range, fully equipped for police work, yet with an acceptable seat height (unlike converted dirt bikes).

Standard Features Include:

  • Water-Cooled 650 cc Fuel Injected Engine
  • ABS Brake System
  • Code 3 LED 4-Head Light System
  • 100W BMW/Code 3 Siren System w/wail, yelp, hyper-yelp and air horn, RRB & PA

We feel that this motor fits perfectly for the mission of homeland security, and is fully capable of virtually any police motor mission. This motor has volume potential as no other manufacturer has a police motor in this category that has water cooling, auxiliary battery, is police turnkey ready, has ABS, low seat height and is in this price range.
