MOSCOW (Sputnik) — According to the manufacturer, the electric motorcycles designed for the road patrol service will be supplied to the Moscow police in late August.
According to the statement, Moscow police officers are preparing to carry out full-scale tests of the bikes. Kalashnikov group said that the motorcycle's cruising range stands at 150 kilometers (93 miles).
