The Buell Police bike you can buy

Do you prefer to go 'out on patrol' rather than 'for a blast'? Yes? Well this is the bike for you

Do you want ChiPs with that? ... new Buell XB12XP

HERE'S the latest Buell - the Ulysses Police XB12XP, designed to give
government agencies and private security firms a quick and very nimble “special duty” patrol vehicle that is capable of travel over a variety of terrain, from open highways to city streets to unpaved back-country roads.

Or so it says in the company bumf about the bike that, to us, looks like it's had some panniers and lights tacked onto it. Anyway, here's more of what the factory says about the bike:

Based on the versatile Buell Ulysses adventure sportbike, the Ulysses Police
features long-travel suspension, generous ground clearance and aggressive
tires that allow it to tackle roads too rough or narrow for confident travel in
an automobile or on a traditional police motorcycle. On smooth pavement, the
Ulysses Police is an agile sport motorcycle. The Ulysses Police can also
accommodate a passenger. Available for order through Buell dealers as of
Tuesday, May 27 2008, production of the 2009 Ulysses Police is scheduled to begin in
August 2008.

Special features of the Ulysses Police include hard-shell top and side
cases, each removable and lockable. The side cases are narrower than the standard
Ulysses accessory side cases, allowing for more clearance in tight
situations. On the Ulysses Police model, the Buell Triple Tail system functions as a
luggage rack with tie-down hooks over the rear seat position, or as a cushioned
passenger backrest with grab rails. A tall windshield, heated hand grips,
and handlebar deflectors are also standard equipment. An available emergency
response kit provides a siren and an LED lighting package in three different
color configurations (Red/Blue, Red/Red, or Blue/Blue).

The Ulysses Police is powered by an air/oil/fan-cooled, fuel-injected Buell
Thunderstorm 1203cc V-Twin engine that delivers 103 peak horsepower. This
engine’s broad powerband and abundant torque gives the Ulysses the ability to
proceed at lower speeds over uneven or unpaved roads with less gear shifting,
and to deliver instant bursts of acceleration. The Ulysses Police has an EPA
fuel mileage rating of 51 mpg urban/64 mpg highway*. A Goodyear Hibrex final
drive belt with Flexten Plus technology is durable and never needs adjustment
or lubrication.

Premium Showa front and rear suspension is fully adjustable. Rear spring
preload can be adjusted for passenger and gear weight simply by turning a dial
located below the left side of the seat. Suspension travel is 6.5 inches in
front and 6.4 inches at the rear. Ground clearance is 6.75 inches.

The Ulysses Police features a 4.4-gallon fuel reservoir integrated into the
aluminum frame. The lower center of mass achieved by carrying fuel in the
frame, rather than in a tank located high on top of the frame, enhances rider
confidence on and off pavement. The muffler is located below the engine to
further lower the center of gravity and centralize mass for improved handling in
all situations. Low unsprung weight helps keep the tires in contact with
uneven road surfaces for improved control. The 17-inch, six-spoke, reinforced
cast-aluminum wheels feature a durable rim design, and Pirelli Scorpion Sync
tires deliver good traction on paved and unpaved roads. A dual front fender
system provides debris protection for the rider and the bike. The Ulysses Police will be offered in two colour choices: Birch White and
Midnight Black.

It doesn't come with a flip-up white lid or hi-viz vest but, if you're interested in the bike, you've probably got those anyway..
