What is the latest BMW motor cycle being used in 2021

Hi all,

Whilst the motorcycle information presented is accurate for the period from 1999 – 2001, the current fleet is very different.

seems those bikes are a little obsolete is there any reason why we dont see bikes round on patrol very much???
in nsw of course
