Man, quite a change I must say, from pot bellied paan chewing middle aged Policemen to smartly dressed guys. Googles too. Is this happened under Akhilesh or Mayawati had started the process before hand?

Yes a good change although the ' old kind - the pot bellied ones ' still exist and they are the ones that are sitting in the stations and following the CM facades and given duty.

These are more on the move ones - I think Agra alone has about 300 of these new ones. Excellent for a city that finishes in 10 - 15 km's.

It happened a year back - BUT Mayawati or Akhilesh has nothing to do with it. This is all in sync with the tourism industry and Taj Mahal. Also one must keep in mind the expressway from noida is about to open any day now.

In fact people already travel on it using special passes. So they needed to spruce upto international standards and they have done a mighty good job of starting it by improving the cop presence and attire.

CBR250 - ain't that a little too pompous?

It's not like these cops will be involved in high-speed chases that they need the extra BHP. And about image - that starts with self, not with the bike you ride.

Why were the good ol' Pulsar 180s dumped in favour of CBR?

That is very great, but what is with that custom paint job. After bat vehicle, is it going to be "spidey bike." The original colour was much better, even black would have been good, but this multicolor.

This is great, the cops look smart too. That guy looks like a state trooper straight from a Hollywood movie.

No, Hyundai gifted 100 CRDi Accents to Chennai Police. There is a thread for it here. (Indian Police Cars)
