I am just lazy and confused about getting a mainland Europe one to the UK. Perhaps I need to just get on with it and bring one over. There are a few around asking 6000 Euro so much better value. Just a bit of hassle.
Any ideas on what the procedure is in terms of getting it approved for UK use?
Hi Simps, I've not imported a bike myself but I don't think it is to difficult. I just Googled this Department for Transport page ( http://www.dft.gov.uk/vca/other/vehi...porting-mu.asp
) which has the rules. At first glance, if you import from Europe it looks like you have to sign a dectaration (Mutual Recognition Process). As you say, there are not many around and with the Euro economy not too brilliant you might pick one up for a good price, just factor in any duty ( www.dutycalculator.com
)the van, crossing, fuel costs etc.
