After the arrival of a new type of motorcycle with the same R mark, BMW R 850 RT models (1996) started to be used and from 2002, the police only purchased the BMW R 1150 RT. To control the state border, the police officers also use BMW 650 F motorcycles. Last year, the police bought 35 Honda NT 700VA motorcycles.
