Importing UK KTM to USA and EPA clearance?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone here imported a UK bought KTM 250EXC to the US - I'm specifically interested in what the Environmental Protection Agency compliance might mean in terms of potential mods required?

Imported/exported..... ;)

Generally speaking you can't import non US market vehicles into the US that are less than 25 years old. There are exceptions for race and exhibition vehicles. Obviously top tier race teams move vehicles around the world all the time, so there are ways to make it happen. 

You could always dismantle it as ship it as used MC parts. Wink Wink.

Once you get it here your ability to register it will depend on what state you are in, many states don't care about the federal rules.

BTW, it's not the EPA that governs this, it's the federal DOT.
