Yes, but he also doesn't want to deregister the old bike!

Tom
Than the trick does not work. But no problem to re-register it (either on its own plates, or as dual plates) once he has the new card for the new bike and the canceled card for the old bike back. No free lunch. Just means for a short time he can ride only the new one.

Re: Car Ownership Transfer

Great to hear I can switch same registration. I guess that's what I am going to do.

No, you can just get the new bike added to the other plate.

Get insurance, go to STVA, get new bike added to current plate, take plate off current bike and put on new bike.

I have two sets of bikes with swapable plates.

Tom
Doesn't that require for the old bike to be the more expensive to insure? Have bigger "Hubraum" (cylinder volume?).

I get the impression that OP, for lack of better knowledge, may be asking the "wrong" questions. I seem to remember that he could get a temporary license+plates for a day or two, e.g. to drive it back home and to go to MFK, though I'm far from certain if memory serves so this needs confirmation. That way the plates for the old bike would be untouched, usable independently from the new bike.

No. You could have the same two bike models on a shared plate (do not ask me what for). The rule is: You will pay the higher road tax of the two bikes + a little fee, and you will pay the higher insurance premium of the two bikes. Most of the times the "more expensive" for road tax and insurance is the same bike but not always.

Yes he could do this. With one little catch. You need a copy of the gray card of the vehicle to get temporary plates.

Some cantons even request the original (St. Gallen).

I do (one of them has a sidecar).
