I think it's a bad idea, but do a search of these threads as it's been discussed here before. Strong Eagle may offer you advice as well as he's and avid biker (large sized bike). It's generally a bit of a problem if you have a big bike as you need to do some juggling to get a license to ride a big bike from start as you normally would not be given an unlimited license to ride anything over 400cc. (three tiers, under 250cc, up to 400cc and unlimited. Normally it would take you two years to get an unlimited license. But it can be done. I also think there are restriction regarding the import of bikes here one being the bike must be less than three years old.

in a nutshell, probably not a good idea to import cars or bikes into singapore unless you got money to burn or the vehicle has sentimental value to you.

If a vehicle had sentimental value I sure wouldn't bring it here to get smashed or scratched or torched here! :wink:
