Motorbikes aren't my thing...

But I do like the look of the ones Specialist Firearms Command (SO19) anti terror police use here in the U.K..

The military used to use Harley Davidson MT350.


Power‎: ‎30 bhp (22 kW) @ 8000 RPM

Engine: Rotax 348 cc Air-cooled single cylinder four-stroke single overhead cam

But the modern day Metropolitan Police SO19 use BMW F800GS.

Top speed: >200 km/h (120 mph) (F800);

Engine: 798 cc (48.7 cu in), parallel-twin, water cooled, 4-stroke, DOHC, 8 valves


While the Special Escort Group (SO14) use Honda VFR1200.


Top speed: 157 mph (253 km/h)

Power: 127 kW (170 hp) @ 10,000 rpm; 148.94 hp (111.06 kW) (rear wheel)
