The battery-powered bike is able to travel up to 43 miles per hour and can run for 25 minutes on a charge. The name of the bike model is “Scorpion,” and it also has pretty big blades that look somewhat dangerous if handled incorrectly.
The bikes, which can carry up to 660 pounds as cargo, will be used in the event of an emergency in places that are tough to reach for standard police vehicles, such as a busy highway.
