The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Recharge at any Tim Hortons

Well, why not? It's a Segway Police Interceptor:

The i180 Police maximizes a police officer's visibility, as well as his or her ability to be seen by others. Raising an officer an additional eight inches off the ground, it places an officer a clear head above the crowd. That means that an officer will be seen when they need their presence felt. Segway HT riders have superior sight lines for traffic management, crowd control, and community policing. The Segway HT i180 Police allows officers to become more approachable, and to respond more quickly to emerging situations.

But does it have a cop motor, a 440 cubic-inch plant, cop tires, cop suspension, cop shocks?

That will never catch on with the officers. Notice the specs? Carrying capacity: 260lbs. The officer in the picture must be about 225 or so. Plus, look at all the police gear on that thing. That's easily another 35lbs so the thing is maxed out. There's no room left for the donuts. Nah, it will never catch on.

Which is precisely why most officers will want nothing to do with it.

And for that matter, aren't mopeds cheaper?
