The '''Police Bike''' is a [[LCPD in GTA IV Era|Liberty City Police Department]] [[Motor Officer|police motorcycle]] that appears in [[The Ballad of Gay Tony]] and [[Grand Theft Auto V]]. The Police Bike is only available during [[multiplayer]], as it does not appear in single player. It is based off an [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harley-Davidson_Electra_Glide_Ultra_Classic#Electra_Glide|Harley-Davidson Electra Glide]. Also, despite most bikes being able to seat two people, the Police Bike can only seat one person, which means it has the smallest passenger capacity of any vehicle in the game, besides the [[Forklift]]. In multiplayer the police are not seen riding the bike or pursuing the player in it (much like the [[Police Stinger]] and [[Police Buffalo]]). Also, the Police Bike's sirens do not cause cars to move out of the way, treating it like a regular motorcycle.

The Western Motorcycle Company Police Bike is a police motorcycle that appears in The Ballad of Gay Tony and Grand Theft Auto V.

DesignEdit

It is based on the Harley-Davidson Road King FLHP. It is similar to an Electra Glide, but is closer in design to the Road King due to the lack of a fairing. Also, despite most bikes being able to seat two people, the Police Bike can only seat one person due to the top box for the electrical system being in the way, which means it has the smallest passenger capacity of any vehicle in the game, along with the Forklift and Rhino. In multiplayer the police are not seen riding the bike or pursuing the player in it (much like the Police Stinger and Police Buffalo).

In GTA V, the bike appears with minor changes such abscent high sirens, being replaced by LED lights at sides and rear.

PerformanceEdit

Being based on a Harley-Davidson Road King, the bike is somewhat heavy but high in power and torque, meaning its top speed and acceleration are average for motorcycles, but higher than most cars. However, the handling is excellent for such a heavy bike, with its powerful brakes being another positive. The bike can also withstand more damage than any other bike in the game, and takes virtually no damage when shot in the saddle bags.
