LOS ANGELES (BRAIN) — The Los Angeles Police Department has announced a pilot program, part of the department's Green initiative, that includes a fleet of 20 Bulls Sentinel e-bikes. 

Bulls USA worked with the LAPD over a nine-month RFP process to build the bikes to meet the specific needs of the department's urban law enforcement and patrol division, giving the LAPD the largest e-bike fleet in the nation. 

The patrol bikes have a Bosch Performance Speed motor, aluminum frame, Magura hydraulic disc brakes with 180mm/200mm rotors, Schwalbe Super Moto tires, and a RockShox Pike fork.

Bulls Bikes USA is the U.S. office of the German brand, which began sales here in 2015. The company offers a wide array of e-bike and standard bike models in the U.S.
