Yesterday when I looked at the linked page there was a photo of a well dodgy looking Bimota VIN plate, looked like it was over stamped? Today it's not there?
Caveat Emptor!!

Spoke too soon, the VIN plate photo is still there. You just have to scroll further don the page. Still looks dodgy to me though or is it just out of focus??

VIN plate looks like it is losing the protective top film - enlarging the photo of the VIN plate I can (just) make out that it is frame number 00027, as per the text. Stolen recovered? The fuel cap looks to have been butchered.
And it's missing the rubber boot that conceals the trip meter reset button. Very Happy

Has no one spotted that the screen finishes some 4 inches short of the end of the nose cone fairing??

according to a friend who has imported several 250's from Japan, a shipping container is around 400 - 600. Import duty for a 250 is set at 8% - may be more for a bigger bike. List of duty payments can be found on HMRC website.
Also factor in handling fees at each end - not huge amounts but they all add up.
When it lands in the UK the calculation is
Cost of bike + shipping + handling fees + duty - add them all together and add another 20% for VAT.
Shipping agent should sort you a NOVA certificate which has to be done within 2 weeks of the bike landing in the UK or you get charged per day thereafter.

Cost of shipping should include insurance set at a level you would be "comfortable" at if the ship went down.....value of bike would also include cost of the insurance also for tax purposes
