German motorcycle manufacturer BMW is offering bikes built to meet the needs of emergency services. Meanwhile, Dutch firm HSC Nieuw-Vennup can further fine tune the BMW machines to meet specific customer requirements.

The new BMW electric scooter now meets German usage regulations and will be available across Europe. This vehicle is well-suited to the needs of urban traffic control duties, offering a range of 100km, a top speed of 120km/h and 0-50km/h acceleration in 2.7 seconds thanks to its 35kW motor.

Three lithium ion cells power the scooter, with these proven units also being used in the firm’s i3 and i8 electric cars. The batteries can be 80% charged in 2 hours 45 minutes and 100% charged in 4 hours.

A version of the top-of-the-range BMW GS touring model has been developed for Holmatro, which offers emergency vehicle rescue services. The bike is equipped with a hydraulic power pack with three hours’ worth of fuel and which drives a hydraulic cutter unit. The cutter can be used to cut open crashed vehicles and to rescue trapped occupants.

Other specially-equipped motorcycles include models built for police, ambulance and fire services with suitable high visibility panelling, lights and other necessary emergency equipment.
