Putting all that stuff on a ROyal Enfield...

Top speed maybe 50 MPH...maybe.

I wonder how many high speed chases they have in Mumbai, where you'd be catching someone who could consistently get up over 50 for long enough to outrun you?

Looks to me that it's more intended to be a 1 shot response unit. I mean, if you're pointing out deficiencies, it can't even carry another person, so it's clearly not intended to be the sole response vehicle.

They forgot the hibachi style grill and retractable awning with mud flaps.

No way anyone can go faster than 20 mph in any city, too many cows, dogs and people to go faster.

Depends where you live and how long you're willing wait for them to arrive.

I know, and limited top speed is not a limitation in ANY built up area, just the first thing that goes through a riders mind (Nice bike, whadda she do?)

However, that front fairing looks a little iffy to me

So they've made an Enfield Goldwing.

Definitely not the first thing that goes through my mind, and I ride daily.  I just looked at it and saw a purpose built machine, that probably gets good gas mileage, something more important than top speed depending on the area.

Royal enfields here in the US are tagged as getting 60mpg, which is pretty nice. My bonny only gets 30ish, and most of the REs I looked at were about 500cc, the bonny is 875cc.

I'm just surprised that the concept of a customized police motorcycle seems like a novel idea in India. Seems that this would be the ideal patrol vehicle in most developed areas. They'd only need to send in a car when they have to haul somebody away.

I'm giving it maybe 2 years till the new Indian made Harley's take over the government contracts.

I'd move the extinguisher or at least shield it. We have seen what debris does to Tesla batteries. It would suck to catch something and have that bottle blow in your face.

So, he'll be The World's Fastest Indian?

I'm sure they'd do fine with an air powered scooty.

Every kid dreams of a motorcycle with a printer.

I'd be impressed if it had a 3D printer.

I've seen beat cops with printers on their belts. Saw one hit a few buttons and issue forth jaywalking tickets to a bunch of douchebags downtown.

Several other accessories such as fire extinguishers, high-power LED flicker lights, portable first-aid kits, slot to hang batons, a siren-cum-announcement speaker with a high-range torch are add-ons

But the cop will still have to stop and pee in an open latrine or in a field, or on the side of a building since there is almost no plumbing infrastructure..Plumbing is the needful, not police bikes
with printers.
