While the use of motorcycles in the military and other branches of the government has declined in recent decades, the RSF blog has uncovered information about a top secret, elite, motorized unit created by the Department of Homeland Security to address an unlikely but potentially terrifying threat: a zombie outbreak.
Considered by most to be nothing more than a figure from Haitian folklore and the product of filmmakers’ imaginations, zombies are nonetheless part of government preparedness efforts.

The motorcycle-based zombie response unit uncovered by the RSF blog, however, does not consider a zombie apocalypse as a threat to be treated lightly. Two classes of motorcycles have been chosen for zombie response duty, as shown in these spy photos. As this photo of the Monster shows, the motorcycles have been equipped with a variety of special tools and weaponry. I first learned about the zombie response unit and obtained these photos when I took a wrong turn and found myself entering a small compound of buildings in the Green Mountains of Vermont that apparently (in retrospect) was a zombie response team training site. After fleeing the state, I later attempted to get confirmation of the response team’s existence by calling Homeland Security from the last existing public pay phone in Newark, New Jersey, hoping my call could not be traced.

Vector studies of the spread of other diseases clearly demonstrate the importance of a fast response to prevent outbreaks from becoming so large that they overwhelm both the health care system and, in the case of a zombie outbreak, public safety forces. It will be no surprise to readers of this blog, therefore, that the response units created to address a zombie outbreak (and prevent it from turning into a zombie apocalypse) have been equipped with specially prepared motorcycles.
The Ducati Monster shown below is an example of a machine outfitted for response in urban areas.
Grenades, spare ammunition and even weapons for hand-to-zombie combat are within quick reach of the rider.
Nobody noticed at first as I shot some photos of the motorcycles from a distance, but when several very fit-looking men with short haircuts who were elsewhere in the compound saw me, shouted and started running toward me, I abandoned my idea of asking for friendly directions. The spread of disease from the undead to living victims could quickly result in an exponential increase in the numbers of undead seeking to feed on ever smaller numbers of besieged, living victims. Government planners clearly believe that relatively lightweight motorcycles will be one of the best means for getting trained personnel to the site of a zombie outbreak despite the widespread panic and chaos and potential social collapse that would quickly follow. The Kawasaki KLR650, bearing the “zombie survival vehicle” identification sticker shown above, is an example of the kind of motorcycle equipped for response in rural areas where all-terrain capability is critical. Motorcycles carry an official “United States Zombie Hunting Permit” as shown in the photo above.


A few miles down the road, I saw a black SUV approaching in my mirrors, but fortunately I was coming to a particularly curvy section of the road and we all know those three-ton SUVs handle like garbage scows on a tight mountain road, so I was able to elude my pursuers.
Presented in graphic novel form, the booklet’s true purpose was to encourage people to make a plan and be prepared in case of a disaster or emergency.
These relatively lightweight motorcycles with their upright riding positions better allow their specially trained riders to deploy weapons even when in motion. The zombie angle was a lighthearted way to grab attention, under the premise that if you were ready for a zombie apocalypse you’d be ready for just about anything. Top speed is not an essential capability for attacking or evading zombie hordes, but maneuverability is critical, so motorcycles in the 650cc to 900cc range were deemed most appropriate.
