These vehicles, including the motorcycles, are parked in a cage in New Milford, CT now.
I have posted them in my Flickr:

Is it odd that the NYPD would have a very un-American bike such as the BMW for their Motorcycle Division?, I would think that something like a Harley-Davidson or Indian would be more the norm.

No, not exactly. Departments will use what fulfils their needs. Since this department seems to be a high speed pursuit, or highway, unit, BMWs might be appropriate, especially since they had a set deadline to meet.

However, the real NYPD Motor Division has used Harleys since 1955, two years after Indian's move to England in 1953, when the real company went bankrupt and the name was perpetuated by Brookhouse Engineering with rebadged Royal Enfields. So, in that regard, yes, it is inaccurate for them to be using BMWs.

The NYPD use Harley Electra Glides as their cop bikes.
