August 25 2004. The New York City Police Department has purchased 300 Piaggio BV200 scooters in time to use for the Republican National Convention.

The NYPD say that the BV is the ideal vehicle for stop-and-go situations. The scooters are white with customized blue NYPD decals, the NYPD motto and full protective windscreens designed for the department.

Special Edition anybody?
