Ever wanted one of the motorcycle used by the Police force? Now is your chance. The United Kingdom Police is getting rid of their Honda ST1300 motorcycles.
There have been problems with these motorcycle in the past, due mostly to the heavy load carried by the cops. Communication gear, emergency gear, you name it added to much weight and made the Pan wobble at high speeds. After the death of one Police Officer, it was decided to take the Pan-European motorcycles off the Force, and sell them.
There are no problems for “normal” people riding them (honest). The center of gravity problem that made them unstable does not affect these bikes under normal circumstances.
Some of the motorcycles being sold are close to new, and have a low price, often 25% below list price.
The motorcycles are full Police spec: ABS, heated grips, electric screens, panniers and rear rack. The Police Service History is available for each bike.
They don’t mention if the coloring scheme has changed, but I think they will have. One thing is for sure, they will have removed the Police lights and sirens.
