BMW Motorrad to show its police bikes at the Milipol 2013

BMW's new range of police bikes, including the C Evolution battery-powered scooter, which can hit a top speed of 120km/h

BMW Motorrad will attend the 18th Milipol in Paris on 19-22 November this year, where they will display their range of “authority vehicles” (yeah, well, police bikes…) and special-purpose equipment for “authority riders.” BMW have been building bikes for the police for more than 85 years and have, since 1970, sold more than 130,000 units of their “authority vehicles” across more than 150 countries worldwide.

The range of police bikes that BMW will show at the Milipol includes the R1200RT, F800GT, F700GS, K1600GT and the C600 Sport scooter. The newly-developed police-spec BMW C600 Sport has a special white/green paintjob and comes with bits like beacon lights at the front and rotating strobe beacons at the rear, a siren, and a crash bar at the front.

Additionally, BMW will also present the police-spec C Evolution, a battery-powered electric scooter that the police might start using someday in the not too distant future. And indeed, with a peak power output of up to 35kW (47bhp), 100km range and 120km/h top speed, the BMW C Evo might actually do alright as a police vehicle.
