MUMBAI COPS COULD GET NEW CUSTOM BUILT ROYAL ENFIELD CLASSIC 350 BASED PATROL BIKES
In the coming months, Mumbai’s police force could get brand new patrol bikes based on the Royal Enfield Classic 350. The Classic 350, which will form the donor bike for the customized patrol motorcycle, will be modified suitably by Road Rage Custom Builds, a motorcycle customization outfit based out of Mumbai. The man who founded Road Rage Custom Builds, Mr Gabriel Zuzarte, has just gotten approval from the RTO for inducting the custom built Classic 350 based motorcycles as patrol bikes for the Mumbai police. The motorcycle features a whole host of changes, with a raft of technological additions to transform the Classic 350 into a high tech patrolling motorcycle.
Stuff such as all weather cameras at the front and the rear, an all weather laptop and printer, pannier boxes to carry first aid kits and paraphernalia to cordon off crime scenes, LED beacons and additional batteries to support all this gadgetry are the various features that the custom cop bike is expected to feature. The first road going version of this concept cop bike is expected to be ready by August 2013, following which the motorcycle is expected to be tested heavily by the Mumbai police. If the custom motorcycle comes out successful in these tests, the Mumbai police could induct the Royal Enfield Classic 350 based tech packed patrol motorcycle into its brigade of patrol vehicles.
The Royal Enfield Bullet has been a staple among armed force, the police forces and other paramilitary forces across India for the past many decades. Royal Enfield Bullets are being steadily replaced across many police forces across the country with newer motorcycles such as the Bajaj Pulsar and the TVS Apache. With the new fangled UCE engine giving Royal Enfield motorcycles better fuel economy, performance and reliability, Royal Enfield motorcycles could make a comeback into the police forces of India, as a modern patrol bike. The Indian armed forces have already inducted UCE based Royal Enfield motorcycles into their fleets.
