Re: Buying a 125 ccm motorbike in Switzerland

Once you have bought the bike you need to consider the fee for the license plate (mine is CHF 36 for the year) and your insurance.

PS. Sorry, I goofed, the CHF 300 was the insurance. The plates are only CHF 36 a year.

Re: Buying a 125 ccm motorbike in Switzerland

Fee is depending on engine volume and CO2 emissions. For 600 cc I pay like 290 CHF. I guess you can devide this by ten?

Not quite, I think my daughter's 50cc is 100/year or so, but I can check. And I think my 140 HP 1000cc Ducati is 300/year (but since I keep it registered only 6 months/years, it's only 150).

Re: Buying a 125 ccm motorbike in Switzerland

You would need to insure it, pay license fee & service it.
service is expensive in Switzlerland, because the salaries are high. During winter there will be long periods when you can't/shouldn't use it (snow or ice on the road).

I assume you will have a job here - if it's within 10 km of where you live bicycles are a very good option, otherwise try the excellent public transport system.

I think you'll spend more if you will import it officially. Read stories here (on the forum), it is costly.

Re: Buying a 125 ccm motorbike in Switzerland

I paid 2.5k for my 1st 125 CC when getting my A1 license 11 years ago. I then after 2 years of upgrading to the 25kw as below, you can have A. 25Kw requires 12 hours of instruction and a road test. Take a look maybe it'll apply to you once you exchange your Hungarian license.

Keine Führerprüfung

Wenn Sie den Führerausweis der Kategorie B besitzen, einen Lernfahrausweis der Kategorie A1 lösen und den Motorrad-Grundkurs von 8 Stunden innerhalb von vier Monaten absolvieren, tragen wir Ihnen die Kategorie A1 im Führerausweis ein, sobald wir im Besitz der Kursbestätigung und Ihres Führerausweises sind.
Wenn Sie den Führerausweis der Kategorien C1 oder C besitzen und während mindestens einem Jahr eine klaglose Fahrpraxis (mindestens Kategorie B) aufweisen und 21 Jahre alt sind, erhalten Sie die Kategorie D1 auf Gesuch hin prüfungsfrei.
Wer seit dem 1.4.2003 die Kategorie A bis 25 kW mit Grundkurs und praktischer Prüfung erworben hat, kann nach zwei Jahren klagloser Fahrpraxis die Kategorie A unbeschränkt prüfungsfrei beantragen.

Yes, it is avaible in Hungary too. i started to think in 3 another opinions:
1: bring my 50 ccm scooter
2: wait for another year and earn money and buy a bigger bike.
3: buy a 125 ccm bike in Hungary( much cheaper than in Switzerland) and register it in Switzerlandm, so i can spare a lot of money.
