I'm pretty sure you're talking about David Hasselhoff's (later, of
Baywatch fame) breakaway hit, Knight Rider, in the 1980's, and its
spinoff, a decade later, called Team Knight Rider.

In Knight Rider, the hero was a super-cop brought back from
near-death, and the technology was a smart car:
"Knight Rider"  TV-Series 1982-1986

In Team Knight Rider, the vehicles multiplied, and several of them
were indeed, motorcycles:
Team Knight Rider


Kat - Kat is a high-tech motorcycle that merges with her twin, Plato,
to form the advanced High Pursuit Vehicle. Kat is driven by Erica and
her AI has a polar opposite personality to that of her devious
operator. Kat is always concerned with rules and regulations and is in
constant conflict with Erica's amoral traits. She acts more like
Erica's mother than her partner, but she will do whatever is necessary
to get Erica out of a jam. (Kat is voiced by Andrea Beutner).

Plato - Plato is a high-tech motorcycle that merges with his twin Kat,
to form the advanced High Pursuit Vehicle. Plato is driven by Trek,
and the two couldn't match each other better. Like his operator, Plato
is a nerdy brainiac completely consumed by facts, figures and data.
Plato likes to quote television commercials and famous movie lines and
talks in sort of a code that only Trek can understand. The two have
developed a strange symbiotic relationship that the other TKR members
can never figure out. (Plato is voiced by comedian John Kassir).

That's gotta be it....right?

If not, though, let me know by posting a Request for Clarification,
and I'll look into it some more.

And in case you didn't catch the comment (below), it seems like Street
Hawk is a strong contender as well:

Well, I'm certainly glad that Google Answers (taken as a whole) got
you the answer you were craving, even if my own contribution was
totally off the mark.

The way things work, though, tavon-ga can't get paid, since he or she
is not a Google Answers Researcher (the researcher's names show up in
hyperlink blue).

So, your $10  has already been charged into Google's account (and
$7.50 of that gets shunted to me).  If that's OK with you, then
there's nothing you need to do.

If it's unsatisfactory, though, let me know, and I can arrange with
the editors to have your money refunded.

Knight Rider?  Car + non-cop =/= bike + cop.
