Re: Canadian YZF-R1 import problems

And update to this, to help the search function.

Importing a bike from a non-EU country requires noise and emissions controls, unless you can cite a previous admission of a like model/region/year. Problem there, is that the authorities won't actually tell you if anything similar has been approved unless you're bringing in a lot as they won't make as much money.

So, it's literally 2,000 CHF for a piece of paper. They know it'll pass the exam, they know that it's essentially the same thing, and there's literally one centre in the country that is "qualified" to perform the tests to the satisfaction of the Strassenverkehrsamt.

Should also be mentioned that these measurements aren't required if you import the vehicle as "personal goods" with a relocation, and if they try to deny the personal goods status, make sure you appeal within the 90 days (this was my mistake).
