LOS ANGELES — The description of the LAPD’s new pilot project sounds more like a cat.

It’s black, quiet and able to sneak up behind people without them noticing.

But the department isn’t expanding its animal division, instead they’ve recently purchased a Zero MMX, a specially built military-grade electric motorcycle. The bike is currently being used by the LAPD off-road unit, which patrols mountain terrain and other locations not accessible to police vehicles or trucks, said Sgt. Rob Alberca, the officer in charge of the unit.
