Merseyside police have grounded their entire fleet of Honda STX1300 Pan Europeans after an accident in which a PC died, according to the Liverpool Daily Post.
The bikes will remain off the road until an accident investigation is completed.
A Honda spokesman commented: "We have a very close relationship with the police and other emergency services.
"Owners of ST1300s have nothing to worry about - temporarily withdrawing machines from service, whether it be a car or a bike, following a serious accident, is standard police procedure.
"We are obviously assisting the Merseyside force in every way possible with the investigation of this tragic accident."
