    Default Mumbai Cops to get modified FZ-S

    According to Mumbai Mirror, cops in the city want an image makeover and has given Dilip Chabria the task of designing the mean machnes.

    City cops to get faster, better, News - City - Mumbai Mirror,Mumbai Mirror

    A Mumbai police officer patrolling the city streets on his motorcycle is no impressive sight.

    The bikes might be durable and may give good mileage, but it does nothing for the Mumbai police’s image, or so feels the state home department.

    In a bid to change this, the government plans to arm city cops with 500 new motorcycles to make them faster, and look better on the streets.

    The state home department plans to ensure that Mumbai’s police bikes look like the ones Europe and America and that they should have additional features such as tool kits, a holder for a walkie-talkie etc.

    Deputy Police Commissioner (motor transport) Kishor Joshi said Home Minister Jayant Patil mooted the idea after similar ones abroad.

    The state home department has also asked automobile designer Dilip Chhabria to modify the bikes to suit the requirements of our police.

    Chhabria said he chose a Yamaha model as it is one of the fastest bikes and has wide wheels and is easy to modify. He estimates that designing each bike will cost between Rs 15,000-20,000.

    He shared his design - modifications on the Yamaha FZ-S - with the government a few days ago. “The government feels the motorcycles will boost the image of Mumbai police. The new look will also make the motorcycles easily recognisable. They will be more comfortable, have better lights and sirens, a kit-box for tools, ammunition and communication,” said Chhabria.

    DCP Joshi added that the government still has to approve the designs and will take a decision on the modifications after it procures the 500 motorcycles. “We have asked Chhabria to submit a few more designs,” he said.

    Yamaha, get ready for some Black FZ-S Stock Clearance soon...

    FZ is a sturdy bike for the police work, no doubt. Good Choice for modification too.
    Usually, police bikes have to be durable, as they are not maintained much. Remember those RD 350's few years back?

    I dont think so they will go for YAMAHA.........
    Since at the EOD Cost matters......and Buying the Costliest FZ will definetely be a concern....and rather modificatons will bring the total cost of one bike to 01Lakh.........

    So far Patrol Bikes were only of Bullets....Apache's.....Pulsars....in INDIA.....

    So at the end they will end up only on an INDIAN Manufacturer.....
    .......Just a Biker.......

    I dont know whether FZ-S will be a good choice because FZ doesnt have top end performance and not enough top speed, which might be required in a high speed chase.

    wastage of taxpayers money . whats wrong with Pulsars or Apaches .

    Fz's aint fast , Yamaha service costs a lot , no crash guard so when bike fall , low mileage , not a indian company

    So now the Poser Police will be after The Posers On Fzs

    well its like power of the blow is rests with the weapon and the wielder also. so as akshaye pointed out, they must hire some good riders....who knows they might adopt Dhoom 1 in process :P

    More over it might seems completely horrible if it comes to south, especially TN..... you can see cops with playing around with FZs having big tyres and something more big on top of fuel tanks.....their pot bellys

    TN xbhpians NOFM for u ppl.....

    PS : random thought
