White Motorcycle Concepts has just unveiled the WMC300FR, a 3-wheeled hybrid police scooter based on the Yamaha Tricity 300. This leaning trike is powered by a Yamaha 292cc single-cylinder engine paired with a 5kW (6.7hp) motor that draws power from two small, 56-V, 12-Ah batteries.
Unlike a traditional scooter, this one has a central duct that channels air straight through the body, right between the rider’s legs and out the rear. This duct was designed to reduce the coefficient of drag, and its three-wheeled layout makes it perfect for the system since it slots in the middle of the wheels.
- Sturdy & Powerful: With the powerful dual motors of 400W, the Segway S-Plus can reach a max speed of 12.5 mph, travel up to 22 miles and accommodate a max load of 220 lbs after a single full charge. Ride your Segway S-Plus to enjoy the beautiful scenery
- Safety & Comfortable: Smart Battery Management System assures the battery safety and extends the battery life. Knee control bar allows for precise steering and easy lifting. The 11" pneumatic tires provide a comfortable and smoother ride on bumpy roads
- Remote Control & Auto-Follow Mode: Use the handle or the joystick on the multi-functional remote with intelligent chip to control the device. When you're not riding and need to have your hands free, turn on follow mode to have your S-Plus follow you
As the national Police chief lead for motorcycling, it is incredible to have been involved in this project from the off, incorporating what we needed in a first responder vehicle. One of the things that I was really clear on in our initial discussions was that the motorcycle should have presence and stand out in our community Policing, provide accessibility to officers and be reflective of the professionalism of the police service, the WMC300FR ticks all those boxes. I think that introducing the WMC300FR will make a real difference and I know that this will be welcomed by the police service,” said Nick Adderley, Northants Police Chief Constable & UK Police lead for Motorcycles.
