Authority Motorcycles from A&S

Return to Police Motors

In 2001, more than 140 U.S. law enforcement agencies performed their work using BMW motorcycles, including urban police agencies in several metro areas as well as State agencies in Idaho, Washington, Oregon and California. Around the rest of the world, BMW is the largest provider of authority motorcycles. BMWs are the only authority motorcycle equipped with antilock brakes. And the R1150GS has garnered 2001 awards for best adventure-tourer by both Motorcyclist Magazine and Rider. Select a topic for more impressive information:

BMW Feature Highlights

  • Massive four-valve, six-speed fuel-injected engine, 85 hp (R1150GS-P), or 95 hp (R1150RT-P)
  • Telelever & Paralever suspension system provides precise handling and stability on or off road
  • ABS brakes (partially integrated for the R1150RT-P)
  • Linked battery system recharges itself even when idling
  • An all-LED emergency lighting system for the R1150GS-P
  • Run-flat capable tires, an engine cooling system, an electrically adjustable windshield, adjustable shift lever, and front and rear protection bars all standard on the R1150RT-P

According to California Highway Patrol (CHP) Commissioner D.O. “Spike” Helmick, “The BMW motorcycle is an outstanding piece of equipment and is highly popular with the officers. It is exceptionally stable and has proven to be very safe.” Commissioner Helmick credits standard ABS on BMW motorcycles to the reduced number of injuries suffered in motorcycle-related accidents.


Why ABS?

When either wheel on a single-track moving motorcycle stops in the event of harsh braking, even for milliseconds, instability becomes spontaneous, placing the rider at dangerous risk for a skid or fall, depending upon which wheel stops. It’s also estimated that far more accidents occur from riders applying less braking from fear of the wheels locking. ABS eliminates that fear while riding in a straight line, even on slippery surfaces or surface media that change too quickly for the rider to respond. ABS significantly reduces reaction time and stopping distance by allowing the rider fully to apply the brakes without spending any valuable time minding the road surface. In effect, ABS helps reduce the frequency of accidents and injuries, and lower workman’s compensation and disability claims.


Cost of Operation (R1150RT-P)

Long-term operating costs are relatively low, using quality and longevity as indicators. Service intervals placed at every 6,000 miles decrease down time and cost. The warranty is unmatched by any other authority brand; in fact, the 3-year unlimited warranty is three times longer than that from any other. The supply of reliable spare parts continues to be high, thereby keeping operating costs for the BMW low. According to a statistics sample of 92 motorcycles over 13 months:

Cost for:
Cost per mile
Scheduled maintenance $0.0551
Mechanical repair $0.0383
Replacement tire $0.0553
