The much-anticipated COP26 climate summit has begun and delegates from around 200 countries are meeting at Glasgow to discuss urgent actions to reduce fossil fuel emissions to save the planet from a climate catastrophe. To spread the message loud and clear about carbon emissions, the UK police have opted for Harley-Davidson's LiveWire electric motorcycles for the purpose of patrolling the summit.

The Scotland Police is using the fleet of electric motorcycles that have been converted from civilian Harley-Davidson LiveWire motorcycles. These electric motorcycles have been specially adapted by technical teams at Harley-Davidson and two Scottish Harley-Davidson dealer partners in Edinburgh and Glasgow to meet the requirements of the officials. Based on a report by Visor Down, these electric vehicles will also be used to ferry VIPs around the conference and ensure the safety of the public.
