Powered by Kawasaki Motor's 998cc air-cooled In-Line Four engine, the Police 1000 provides strong low-speed torque for quick engine response. Thanks to its short 60.4-inch wheel base, low center of gravity, high ground clearance, low wet weight and generous steering lock angle, the Police 1000 has an exceptionally tight turning radius. Safety features include special bead retention "run-flat" 18-inch tires mounted to low-maintenance cast spoke wheels. In addition, upgraded front disc brakes include twin opposed-piston calipers. Law enforcement features include standard pursuit lights, high-visibility turn signals, rubber-isolated rear carry rack plus rear marker lights.
