2015-11-10 01:57
From November 17 – 20, 2015 Yamaha will be showcasing their special fleet for police and military usage at the Milipol 2015 Trade Show in Paris, France. Milipol is the world’s leading exhibition of internal state security and is Europe’s largest tradeshow for military and police vehicles. The 4-day event takes place at the Paris Nord Villepinte Parc des Expositions.

Yamaha Police Bike Fleet

Known for delivering reliable and high performance quality products, we have been developing police specification motorcycles since 1987. Our latest line-up includes the FJR1300AP, the flagship model of Yamaha’s police motorcycle fleet, the XJ6 4-cyl 600cc midrange class police bike and the MT-09 Tracer Police, all on the market for numerous countries across Europe, Oceania, Asia, the Middle East, Africa and Central and South America.

The MT-09 Tracer

This year will be the first year we showcase the MT-09 Tracer Police motorcycle at Milipol. The MT-09 Tracer was designed with Police work in mind, allowing for full equipment installation - including the Police-required hard side cases – thanks to a longer swingarm and a dedicated tail design. With its lightweight and compact die-cast aluminum frame the Tracer Police is perfect for city patrolling and quick interventions in busy traffic situations. Its adjustable riding position limits fatigue for long hours and long distances work sessions. The MT-09 Tracer Police bike is available at a very competitive price and is affordable in service and maintenance.

Country Specific Testing

Yamaha FJR1300AP, MT-09 Tracer Police and XJ6 Police motorcycles are all available in standard livery and Police equipment directly from the Iwata factory. These motorcycles are tested under specific conditions for each country’s different road and weather conditions. The Yamaha local branches take care of the final specification delivery of each motorcycle following each country’s specific requirements.
