Import a motocycle from EU

Hi,

I am thinking to import a motocycle from EU just because I don't find what I am looking for here...

Does anybody already did the same?
I might buy the moto to a private person not to a company so I have to do all the paperwork....


Any tips?

I did that.

Took nearly a year to get it registered, and CHF 1500 for the papers from the importer.

And I had help from the local dealer, who also lent me a dealer plate on weekends so that I could ride it.

woow this is a lot! And I see that is not easy.
This price depends on the cc of the moto?

What bike?

If they don't/didn't sell the same model here, it can cost even more.

Mine was a Ducati that I bought at the factory in Bologna (new), that was also sold here.

I also imported my Guzzi from the US back in '86, and paid a similar amount.

No, both are 1000cc, but the testing price should be the same.
