Judge Dredd's Lawmaster

Judge Dredd's Lawmaster: It is a type of futuristic, heavy-duty motorcycle. It is regulated by a computer with limited artificial intelligence. It has the ability to drive itself to any location on "automatic" as well as having automatic signal indicators and voice recognition (as long as the voice circuits are on). It has twin machine guns ("bike cannon"), a laser, and can fire stun gas grenades. It also has a turbo-boost function which enables it to jump over long distances or to great heights. It can respond to verbal commands and drive itself. It superseded the obsolete Lawranger in the 21st century. In the comics lawmaster are fitted with robot brains so that if necessary they can work on their own.

Fun Fact:  In the 1995 Judge Dredd movie, an exact replica of the comic Lawmaster was made, but there was only one problem. It was too bulky to steer. So, in the 2012 Dredd movie, the filmmakers took some liberties with the Lawmaster to make it more ergonomic.
