Murphy-class Police Grav Bike

Editor’s Note: This article originally appeared in Freelance Travellers June 2011 issue.

The Murphy-class Police Grav Bike is produced by Christchurch Corporation on Home, and was designed specifically for the Home Police force. The two radios and computers combined with the head up display allow a significant amount of information to be displayed on the bike’s windscreen for the driver as well as to be transmitted in real time back to HQ while still allowing the driver to communicate with colleagues.

The high performance combined with the inertial compensation means that the police can perform impressive driving manoeuvres while in pursuit of suspects or criminals.
