    Saw Jason Bourne today. (It doesn't add much to the genre, but I liked it OK).

    Anyways the first of two chase scenes is on a "police bike" that looks like a big thumper supermoto. When I saw that I knew he'd be riding some stairs (spoiler: he does). It's white but the exhaust is on the right unlike the 701. But too big to be a 450/500.

    Question: do the police in Greece (or anywhere) really use bikes anything like this? I have only seen them on 700 lb Harleys and BMWs.

    Google F650GS-P. Saw a photo of a Central American policeman on a badges DR200. Cant place it now.

    It's a police thumper alright!

    Very porky compared to Bourne's "police bike" but still.

    You know it's interesting that we are all "ATGATT", but cops ride in short sleeve shirts. And bitchin' boots. I guess they are not expected to go down.

    Looks like a Husqvarna 450/501 supermoto with a fake gas tank cover.

    It is isn't it. Being up on that trailer, and the shrouds, just make it look bigger. My Husky 510R seems a lot smaller than that.

    Im seeing the KTM Husqvarna engine cover and near horizontal engine tube in front of it. And maybe even the rear number plates and a KTM swingarm...

    Its not a bMw and its not a trellis 701/690.

    Google image 701 Rally bikes. It looks like a 701 with some sort of Adventure Kit, bigger gas tank, rerouted exhaust.
