Evanston buys seven Harley-Davidson police motorcycles

The Evanston Police Department should soon receive seven new Harley-Davidson motorcycles after the City Council recently approved the purchase of the vehicles.

“They’re not offering the mayor any rides,” Mayor Elizabeth Tisdahl joked after the meeting.

Council members unanimously approved the $108,276 purchase. The seven new city-owned motorcycles will replace seven motorbikes that had been leased at a cost of $33,000 per year, according to the city staff report.

The Evanston Police Department’s motorcycle unit was established in 1908, and police officers use the bikes on traffic enforcement and major investigations, as well as parades, special events and other activities, according to city reports.
