Hi everyone, would love if you could provide some input here.

Some background - I moved to British Columbia, Canada about two years ago. Sold most of my bikes, except for the mistress - a 2013 F4RR. I'd love to take her with me, but Canadian customs legally prohibit importing almost any vehicle except those manufactured specifically for US/Can market. I'm coming from Russia, my F4 is EU spec, so there's no way I can bring it here. The only option left is to sell it and get another one here.

I've been trying to sell it for almost three years now - 9k mileage, half road/half track, about 10k EUR in accessories, all stock parts still intact, she's perfect in every way - I'm a certified MV tech and Ohlins suspension engineer. Still, it seems there's no market for this kind of bike in Russia right now, unless you're willing to part with it for about 5000 Euro or so, which obviously doesn't make any sense. And I'm not about to sell her to someone who's deciding between an S1000RR or an F4, whichever is cheaper.

So I started thinking if I should try and re-export it back to EU and sell it there. That's where I'd like some input - can someone provide any insight on the paperwork and trouble involved from the EU buyer side with buying a vehicle abroad? Titles, VAT, bill of sale - whatever you can think of. Any input at all is appreciated.

Konstantin

Paors, wouldn't it be easier to sell in US if Canada and US are working together in emmisions regulations ?
Same problem - if I could register it in US at all, I'd get it through US to Canada. You need a DOT sticker for that - different optics, different fuel.

I imported a bike from US to Germany.


First shipping was app 700 $ incl paperwork.


You pay 10% import duties on bike and shipping to EC, than sales tax or VAT on all that together. That depends on the country you are, Germany 19%, Italy 22%, Sweden 25%.


Think it only makes bureaucrats happy.....

Are import duties collected at the border or when registering? Do they depend on your resident country or where you're entering EU?

Quite a collection you've got there, sir - Hellcat and Denali especially. Bet there's much more room to put those engines to good use in Germany than here.
