Only one main dealer actually Chear Motor but they have branch throughout the country and their aftersales are preetty good.

Hmmm if thats all true starting a bike business somewhere over there is looking do-able lol.......I'm a car dealer here, I'll give you some sample prices of Harley's that I can get at auctions....

2011 Harley FLHTCUTG.....$28,000
2010 Harley FLHTK...........$15,000
2011 Harley FLHX.............$16,000
2010 HARLEY FLSTC..........$12,000


Here's some other examples......






Think I would make any money??? Indonesia looks nice, wouldn't mind spending some time there
Obviously the problem is with the taxes the country charges, not the actual cost of the bikes.

But is it really the taxes that make the bikes that high? I knew there was something with the taxes but I wonder how much of it is just markup??


and 999R ... "Obviously the problem is with the taxes the country charges, not the actual cost of the bikes.".....Do you actually know that or are you just guessing? Obviously it's not that obvious because I had no clue about that, lol

The 990r would eat an SF848 wouldn't it? not much of a comparision really. More even comparison to the bigger 1098 SF, but from what I've read the 990r swallows that down whole and spits it out too.

Like many on here I've got a Ducati as well, so not biased toward either brand, but even the old brutale had the edge on the SF series, so the new Brutes are a lot better.

Hi Uuwik, I'm new in this forum, I do have an MV Agusta Brutale 910 2007 for sale if you're interested. =) Plus financing is available.

I have tried both the SF and Brutale, and for Jakarta traffic, I would go with the Brutale. The distance for its handlebar is definitely closer vs SF, therefore, it makes it more upright and comfortable position especially for Jakarta traffic. Plus the smooth inline vs jerky vs twin? =)

However, the steering is a bit more heavy vs SF 848.

Thanks! Hope its helpful and didn't sound like a smart@$$ here. =)

Import Taxes:
- GST 10%
- Import Tax 40% on Build Up Vehicles
- Income Tax 2,5% on Motorcycles
- Luxury Tax 75% (over 600cc)
- Registration approx 10%

Sum those up with the unit price ... and you'll get the bike's price. Hehehe...

My God, where do you get your infos buddy?
That must be the biggest BS I've heard in a very lond time, the only way a 999R swallows a 1098SF is only if it blows it first or if the SF has the kickstand down!

2007 Ducati 1098S Tri.(sold)

Yeah, the 1098SF has more horsepower than the 990R and it is lighter. Should be faster, rider skills notwithstanding.
