Hyderabad police department is doing a major and glamorous makeover. This would be the first time when the state government will provide fully equipped Regal Raptor bikes to police for patrolling purpose. These stylish bikes will be seen on the streets very soon. They are fully customized and will have all the basic facilities to make police’s job much easier.
These bikes have GPS tracker, flashlight, and public address system. Initially, these FAB Regal raptor will be provided only to Hyderabad, Cyberabad and Rachakonda police.
Regal Raptor has a showroom in Jubilee Hills, Hyderabad. This is the first showroom they have opened in India, in 2015.
The cost of the bike is 4 Lakh each, and as per the sources, they will only be used in emergency situations. The cops will go through a proper training before riding these 320cc beasts.
The team of officials has already selected two models after visiting the showroom. They have shortlisted Regal Raptor Daytona 350 and Regal Raptor DD 350E-9B.
This is What Regal Raptor Daytona 350 and Regal Raptor DD 350E-9B look like

The bikes will have Telangana police logo on front and loudspeakers on both the sides. It will also have a camera attached to it. It can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 3 seconds. According to experts, this is surely a good initiative but it will need high maintenance. Few bikes will be tested on the roads first and in emergency situations, and if there are any changes required it will be flagged to the manufacturer.
Earlier to this, around 300 bikes and 100 Innova cars were provided to the police department by Telangana Govt. under the ‘Safe and Smart City’ initiative. This is surely a great initiative. Do you think it was necessary or is it again a waste of money?
