Motorcycle cops in Barbados will soon be riding down “electric avenue” after the Barbados Police Service was presented with a number zero-emission vehicles.
Bim EV Services, a Barbados-based electric vehicle dealer, has partnered with Energica Motor Company, to provide the bikes which it said will be in use “in the coming weeks”.
“This is an opportunity for the Barbados Police Service to be at the forefront of sustainable and eco-friendly transportation,” said Dario Alleyne, managing director of Bim EV Services. “We are working to bring innovative solutions to the transportation sector in the Caribbean, and this partnership with Energica aligns with our vision for a greener and cleaner future.
“We believe that this partnership will not only benefit the environment, but it will also contribute to the efficiency and effectiveness of the Barbados Police Service. We are honoured to be a part of this initiative and look forward to working with more organisations to promote sustainable energy in Barbados and beyond,” he added.
Livia Cevolini, chief executive officer of Energica, stated: “We are proud of the trust that numerous law enforcement agencies around the world are placing in our product. After the involvement in the 2022 G20 in Bali and the UGAP (France’s leading public central purchasing body) tender achieved this year, we are happy to deliver our bikes to the Barbados Police Service.
“These new Energica electric motorcycles, in replacing conventional petrol bikes operated by the Barbados Police Service, will have discernibly positive effect on the environment, from the very first kilometre.” (PR/BW)
