The [[Western Motorcycle Company]] '''Police Bike''' is a [[Motor Officer|police motorcycle]] that appears in ''[[The Ballad of Gay Tony]]'', ''[[Grand Theft Auto V]]'' and ''[[Grand Theft Auto Online]]''.
   
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.
+
==Design==
Being based on a Harley-Davidson Electra Glide, it is presumably a modified version of [[Wintergreen]] much like the [[VCPD Wintergreen]].
+
===''The Ballad of Gay Tony''===
  +
It is based on the [[wp:Harley-Davidson FL#Road King|Harley-Davidson Road King FLHP]]. It is similar to an [[wp:Harley-Davidson FL#Electra Glide|Electra Glide]], but is closer in design to the Road King due to the lack of a fairing. 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 several vehicles (such the [[Forklift]], the [[Rhino]], etc.). In multiplayer the police are not seen riding the bike or pursuing the player in it (much like the [[Police Stinger]] and [[Police Buffalo]]).
  +
  +
===''Grand Theft Auto V''===
  +
In ''[[Grand Theft Auto V]]'', the bike reappears with almost the exact look as in ''TBoGT'', except for a few details. The bike no longer features high sirens, but they are replaced by more LED lights over the front wheel cover, the sides and the rear end of the rear section of the same (instead of being turned on when the vehicle's engine is on, these are currently emergency lights). Unlike the previous appearance, police officers are seen using these bikes.

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.

The police bike returns once again to [[GTAV]], but it hasn't changed much since [[TBOGT]] .[[File:Azvehdatab_NM4.jpg|thumb|The police bike chasing [[Trevor Phillips]] in [[GTAV]].]]
+
Returning to ''[[Grand Theft Auto V]]'', the bike's acceleration and top speed capabilities remain unchanged, however, the response of setting off (including traction) has been greatly improved, and with GTA V's new handling physics, the bike is much more responsive for cornering and braking. Because of the bike's weight, the Police Bike isn't a bike capable of successful or easy wheelies, often the bike attempts to pull itself back down when at high speed due to gravitational force, but it also tends to be sluggish at wheelies even at moderate speeds.

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

DesignEdit

The Ballad of Gay TonyEdit

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. 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 several vehicles (such the Forklift, the Rhino, etc.). In multiplayer the police are not seen riding the bike or pursuing the player in it (much like the Police Stinger and Police Buffalo).

Grand Theft Auto VEdit

In Grand Theft Auto V, the bike reappears with almost the exact look as in TBoGT, except for a few details. The bike no longer features high sirens, but they are replaced by more LED lights over the front wheel cover, the sides and the rear end of the rear section of the same (instead of being turned on when the vehicle's engine is on, these are currently emergency lights). Unlike the previous appearance, police officers are seen using these bikes.
