Petition for euro cbr1000r in US

I tried to contact Honda corporate to ask the steps required to get the european new919(1000r) over here, but after being put on hold for 40 mins I gave up. You guys know how to go about this. I'm want that thing.

IF you are serious about getting one into your garage you will be better off researching the requirements for importing one. Our lovely neighbors to the North would be my first stop.

Hope your credit is good!

I really want to hear about someone buying one in Canada, and importing it to the US. How much red tape, fees, etc.

Maybe try these guys if you're genuinely serious.

For best leverage start a website petition. For example this one, which unfortunately didn't convince the stubborn French to let Levi race their Tour.

How about this URL?

I looked all over Honda's site for an email address to send them my opinion on this bike and found nothing. If someone knows how to make a petition, I will definitely sign it.

I'm with Rossi on this one. If Honda won't send a 1KR our way, screw em. They're not the only game in town. Yamaha makes a fine product, as does Aprillia. Everyone knows exactly how many of everything gets sold everywhere. Money talks. The hottest thing in motorcycling right now is the "Adventure Bike". Riders are supposidly moving away from Sport bikes. I would think the Naked class would benifit as well because they're are a lot of people tired of the crotch rocket, but not ready for a BMW boxer moto thing.

They'll wake up sooner or later. If you have to have a new Honda, the 600RR is just fine, especially after a set of HeliBars.

They just import already purchased vehicles. I did call Honda of Canada and it looks like its a Euro only.

Your avatar nearly made me fall out of my chair!

If you want it soon please book a ride tour of Europe with enough Kilometers so you can import one (7500ml for Cali). BMW use to offer that vacation program. Then riding it around the US you'd tease folks to get a 1M signatures on Honda's petition.

Importing a Euro bike legally might not be possible, as it won't be certified by the factory to meet our EPA emissions standards... so it won't make it past the border. You're better off going over there, buying it, disassembling it and mailing it here in pieces.

I LOVE HONDA'S I have had many off them!!

BUT the new KTM SUPERDUKE looks pretty sweet

I want that new CB1000R for 2009! The more I see the photos of that bike the more I love it, even the vomit green is starting to look good to me.

I think that the FZ1 has the frame problem fixed though and personaly I think that the FZ1 looks pretty sweet! and it has an R1 motor how bad could it be?
