With an FM visa you absolutely need a TVIP. You can get it renewed anually fairly easily without going to the border but you do need one. One vehicle per person!

For the small amount you save, in my opinion it's too much of a hastle to bring in small motorcycle in on a TVIP or to legally import it. Just buy one in Mexico. Cheap to buy, cheap to maintain. They look like fun in the city but dangerous out on the highway.

That Honda Cargo 150 looks like a decent bike for 22,000 pesos. 11.2 HP!
