Buying/Importing a Motor bike

Hi I'm looking at buying a Motorbike possibly a Triumph Speed Triple which I don't beleive are imported here. Does anyone know of a Triumph specialist in Zurich?
The other option is to import one myself, my understanding is that if youv'e owned the bike for 6 months there are no import tax fee's but you have to get the bike checked to make sure it complies with emmisions.
Then there is the question of insuring it, what Permit is required if any how expensive is it here, are there any additonal costs I need to know about?

Thanks

Mark
