Gainesville police riding new motorcycles
Departments new Kawasakis are more efficient, capable on patrol
The Gainesville Police Department recently purchased Kawasaki motorcycles to replace the Harley-Davidsons the department has used since 1999.
Last week, Gainesville Police Chief Brian P. Kelly rolled out the department’s newest enforcement tools — three new 2013 Kawasaki police motorcycles. The motorcycles will replace the aging fleet of Harley-Davidson Road Kings purchased in 1999. “The motorcycles were funded through the fiscal year 2013 budget the council approved,” department spokesman Cpl. Kevin Holbrook said.
