I write stuff. A lot of it is about cars and motorcycles.

Kawasaki Police C-14?

I wasn’t aware that Kawasaki made the Concours 14 in a police version, but I stumbled across this story tonigh, which says the city of Mesa, AZ will be shelling out a cool half-million to completely replace its current fleet of 1000Ps with C-14s.

Historically, the department has used a Kawasaki 1000 P, which has largely remained unchanged since it was introduced in the 1970s.

“Incidents where there were very serious conditions and collisions could be related to the lack of ABS and poor lighting,” Wessing said. “Those were the major safety downfalls of those motorcycles.”

Technology and safety features, such as anti-lock braking systems (ABS), on the new Kawasaki Concours’, which will replace the 1000 P, mean officers will be able stop their bikes within half the distance.

So, apparently there is a Concours 14P.  I can’t seem to find any images of one, but I have to admit, I’m curious.
