Nice, but it's not going to happen. You can buy it, and even bring it here, but you cannot register or insure it here. It does not meet DOT and EPA standards. I tried every way I could think of to buy a brand new air cooled VW bug when they were still building them in Mexico. I had an easy way to get it here, all I had to do was to have a Mexican citizen drive it across the border. But it would have been a huge paperweight. People have transferred the VIN plate from a U.S. bug to one of those, but if you get caught, you are looking at a few years in the federal pokey.

If you already have a motorcycle here, you wouldn't need to register it - just switch plates. Also, if you know someone in Mexico who can ride it across to the US, that's pretty much all you need there too. My 2 cents anyway.

Yeah, until you get stopped by a cop, and the VIN does not match the plate. They check that here, mostly looking for stolen vehicles, but an unapproved vehicle with a fraudulent plate/registration would get you into a whole lot of trouble.

Here in Texas, they check if you have insurance. If you do, that's pretty much all that matters. I also don't know how you can get pulled over on that thing. It's pretty slow.

Unless you make it look like this:



Or this:



Or even this:

You can and will get pulled over here on anything. They mainly target crotch rockets, but I have been pulled over on a Goldwing a couple of times. And they always run the VIN. We are very close to the Mexican border, and several Indian reservations. Vehicle theft is probably the most common crime here. And it doesn't have to be something fancy or expensive, they will steal anything. I had a ratty dual sport motorcycle stolen once, from a McDonald's parking lot, in the daytime.

Never let 'em take you alive, Jerry!

We interrupt our regular programming for this live report from Channel 12's "Eye in the Sky"...

"Thanks, Bob. The video you are seeing is a low speed chase of a curmudgeonly guy on a bootleg Honda scooter running from Sheriff Joe. The man is being chased down for suspicious behavior believed to be 'First Degree Fraudulent Importation of a Vehicle With Less Than 10 Horsepower'. The authorities have put out spike strips, but the scooter tires are so narrow that the perp was able to drive between the spikes. Hold it! It appears an officer has fired 6 warning shots into the perp's helmet. We understand that may not be a vital organ on those who ride on two wheels. Hold it, again! The perp has left I-10, after getting off the 101, and is riding through the desert. Sheriff Joe has decided to skip the usual helicopter pursuit and has launched one of the department's new missile-equipped drones... but, it appears that the little Honda doesn't put out enough of a heat signature to lock on. Wait - this just handed to me... not only is he suspected of the Fraudulent Importation, but it appears the perp is wearing an MX jersey instead of a mesh armored jacket. Obviously, an outlaw biker type. Whoa! He side-swiped a saguaro cactus - that's gotta hurt! He has ducked between the boulders in the Superstition Mountains. We'll have more on this as it unfolds. And now, back to "Days of Our Lives'."

Looks like a cool bike. Plating and riding (legally) could be a challenge

As others have mentioned, buying a Sym Symba in Texas would be a lot easier w/o the hassles.

But either way, I applaud your desire to "stick it to the man" and bring one in from Mexico.

But then, he'd have to import it from the Republic of Texas to Arizona.
