Polizia Stradale are not astride a fleet of Ducati Multistrada but have plumped for the latest Yamaha FJR1300 AE.
Apparently when put to the test by officers, they praised the ride comfort and ease of handling even with heavy police equipment installed on the FJR that brings them up to over 300 kg in fully fuelled police trim.
This attractive livery also adorns the bikes used as escort vehicles for international dignitaries and national events.
A fleet of 90 FJR1300 AE has been delivered to the Italian National Police and this special order besides being made with the colours and logos of the white and blue institutional livery of the Italian National Police, also includes a specific set-up designed in partnership with INTAV Srl, consisting of:
- LED flashing beacon mounted on a telescopic pole
- A pair of front flashing lights with LED technology, integrated in the standard windscreen
- Sound kit consisting of a pair of neodymium speakers with lowered profile, master and slave, equipped with an electronic module
- Integrated two-tone siren, emergency / rescue sound
- Management system with waterproof push-button panel equipped with backlit buttons
