UofK Security Goes Electric
LEXINGTON, KY - The University of Kentucky's Police Department has become one of only about a dozen departments nationwide to add all electric motorcycles to its fleet. The police departments of Penn State University, Amherst College, and New York City are among those which use the new Vectrix VX-1 motorcycles, manufactured by a company based in Connecticut..
University of Kentucky (UK) Police Officer Wes Tyler described the new motorcycles as "Very smooth, very quiet, with no vibration. They handle like a moped. I'm very comfortable [riding one] in traffic."
And because these motorcycles emit only a faint humming sound, "If you're trying to follow someone they don't even know you're there," he added with a grin.
