Shipping and delivery prep is probably $1000. I guess $32,000 is a bit high.Strong Eagle wrote:It's a hurtful amount of money but it's life in Singapore. This bike in the USA ranges from $13,500 to $16,900 which is S$16,860 to S$21,105.x9200 wrote:I just called Hong Leong, and if I got it right, it is 33k COE inclusive. I forgot to ask about GST but even if not included it is still damn good value for money for a bike like this.

If I recall, curiousgeorge imported a bike and said he saved quite a bit of money... maybe he will chime in or you could PM him.
Bike price - $16,860
Freight and insurance - $2,000
Subtotal - $18,860 (OMV)
Excise tax @ 12% - $2,263
Subtotal - $21,123
GST @ 7% - $1,479
Subtotal - $22,602
COE - $3,900
Registration and Fees - $200
ARF @ 15% OMV - $2,829
Road tax - 1 year - $460
Total cost - $29,991
Note that OMV is the sum total of actual price of the motorcycle, plus freight, insurance, handling charges, and "incidental charges" such as inspection fees, paperwork fees, etc.
So, you could potentially come out ahead by S$3,000 or so if you find a good deal internationally but there is plenty of hassle in doing so.
