It was used as a VIP escort vehicle in Cyprus before being sold to a private owner in Cyprus. Later it was handed back to the RAF who transported it to the UK and used it at RAF Halton in Aylesbury.

|Two RAF demo police bikes are shown here. The VFR1200 is liked for its power, but the 780cc Crossrunner was criticised for its plastic and ill fitting dash, and the seat not being grippy, throwing the rider forward into the tank under braking!|
|A close look at the RAF Police badge on the front. The motto ‘fiat justitia’ translates from Latin as ‘let justice be done’.|
