    These guys ship worldwide. The JDM bikes have different VIN numbers which make it impossible to get street legal in the USA.

    Very disappointing 50th Monkey. Plastic fenders, headlight bucket, tool kit, tail light bracket. Not the same Honda as when Mr. Honda steered the ship. Collectors will buy it and stick in a closest. 2016 Adventure Monkey actually showed a little style. Good bye old friend....you have served us well.

    Depends on the state. Id wager I could get a title for one in my state.
    Ive yet to see something that couldn't be titled for the street here. Even 2-stroke dirt bikes get title and tags here.

    They got back to me, 380,000 ($3353) for the bike (on back order, 1-2 months). 99,000 ($873) shipping to port in LA. Then I have to get it here, and is there a duty charge?
    As much as I'd love to have one, my tight wad self won't allow it. It would be a great collector though.

    Did they mention the broker charge to you as well? Close to $4500 in the end for that. Not worth it. Only collectible to other collectors.
