Look before you leap. New motorcycles can be plated depending on the state and how the Manufacturers Statement of Origin (MSO) is written. If your state wants federal compliance, just lights and blinders won't do it. The MSO needs to indicate it is federal compliant. There is no new 2 stroke in existence that is federal compliant. As for 4 strokes, look at the MSO. KTM EXC models (and Husky clones) are compliant. Beta, Gas Gas, Shirco 4 strokes I'm not sure. Almost anything can be licensed in WA since the rules were changed. CA not so much. NJ no idea. Most western states no problem.
