British Italian Motorcyles has 07's on the floor for 11999 plus setup fees. Western Powersports has a red 06 for 11999 plus 700 in fees. There is no change for 07 from 06. In 06 truimph couldn't keep up with demand and the 06 bikes were hard to get in the US. For 07 they are increasing global production by 40%, so they should be easier to get. I have been looking at importing an 07 from the US. I have a dealer willing to do it and will save $2000.00. The US price is 8999.00. Although, the 07's have not been added to the riv.ca list yet.

Your warranty will be a problem buying from the US.

If you buy it from WA. it will be 8% tax + GST/PST = 22% tax

OR. no sales tax.


When I calculated the conversion and tax it was a $1287 savings buying in the WA.

Nope, global warranty on triumph and there is a dealer in Bellingham. I prefer to support local businesses, but for 2000 bux? Who gets that 2g's, the Canadian distributor, the manufacturing co., not the dealer.

I'm not sure, but I think if you're buying from out of state, there's no U.S. sales tax - only GST and PST when you yank it over the border.

No duty on motorbikes, either.

For cars duty depends on where it's manufactured. I think bikes are the same, but I could be wrong. 6.1% Japanese and probably similiar for an English bike.

Nope. Nafta excludes motorcycles from duty when importing from the U.S.

I shopped US wide and bought my Gixxer from Xtreme Suzuki in Ohio, no sales tax, no duties just PST/GST + the RIV fee.
I had the bike shipped to Seattle and drove through Peace Arch late at night, it took them less than 10 min to do the paperwork.
You pay GST and RIV at the border and PST when you get your plate with ICBC.
Easy :rockon

How do you get out of paying state tax.

When purchasing any article do I just say I'm Canadian and I do not have to pay state tax.

Nutella how much was it to have the bike shipped from Ohio to WA.

You get out of paying state tax by showing the dealer your BC driver's license.

Easy peasy, lemon squeezy.

Seriously, my next bike I'm picking up in the States. Maybe an MV Brutal? A used one can be found for approx $10K Yummy!



As a caveat, I should mention that I verified the 'no sales tax' thing in Ohio. It may be different in another state.

How bout any safety or emissions qualifications? Does the bike have to get a safety done or any changes done to it in order to get a B.C. plate? Or is it just a simple matter of paying applicable taxes and you free to insure it?

Each state has its own rules regarding tax for "out of state or international" sales. some places apply a minor local tax. I've heard that for Arizon and Florida a vehicle must be shipped and not picked up and riden/driven to avoid taxes. However, most states can do not apply any taxes for international sales. I checked with a Triumph dealer in Washington, the warranty is global. Without negotiating, a 2007 675 lists at 8999 plus 500.00 pdi/frt is 9500.00 US times 1.12 equals 10640.00 CDN. Add PST/GST and 200.00 RIV fee = 12223.00 CDN. In Canada it was 14349.00 on the road, without negotiating. a 2000.00 savings. Some bike brands may not honour the warranty, I have not checked them all.


The bike must be on the list, just updated

no exceptions. If the MV Agusta was on the list, I would have one in my garage. I have heard rumours that they may be coming to Canada, but no concrete information. Obviously, the bigger the ticket bike, the more you save.

Was through Forwardair, check their website forwardair.com . Something like $500/$600 full insurance included.
