Nice, but it's not going to happen. You can buy it, and even bring it here, but you cannot register or insure it here. It does not meet DOT and EPA standards. I tried every way I could think of to buy a brand new air cooled VW bug when they were still building them in Mexico. I had an easy way to get it here, all I had to do was to have a Mexican citizen drive it across the border. But it would have been a huge paperweight. People have transferred the VIN plate from a U.S. bug to one of those, but if you get caught, you are looking at a few years in the federal pokey.

If you already have a motorcycle here, you wouldn't need to register it - just switch plates. Also, if you know someone in Mexico who can ride it across to the US, that's pretty much all you need there too. My 2 cents anyway.

Yeah, until you get stopped by a cop, and the VIN does not match the plate. They check that here, mostly looking for stolen vehicles, but an unapproved vehicle with a fraudulent plate/registration would get you into a whole lot of trouble.

Here in Texas, they check if you have insurance. If you do, that's pretty much all that matters. I also don't know how you can get pulled over on that thing. It's pretty slow.

Unless you make it look like this:



Or this:



Or even this:

Camping with a Super Cub in Japan

Look at this guy take his Honda Super Cub for a 180 kms. ride to a campsite (took him about 5 hours of easy riding including the ferry ride). Ignore the Japanese captions if you can't read them and simply enjoy his story through the video.

He used only local roads. At the bridge, there is a cheap toll for motorycles/scooters 125cc or less for about ¥200 ($2). As for the ferry ride, that one could be less than ¥1,000 ($10).

Progress on the Chinese SuperCub clone:

Re-jet carb, removed airbox to use a cone air filter, ceramic wrap the header portion of exhaust:



Surging issues mostly gone, some back firing with OEM airbox, but none with cone air filter. Spark plug gotta good tan.

I removed about 8-10 lb. of stuff from OEM scoot, about 4-5% of weight loss on vehicle.

About 300 miles put on the SuperCub clone since July 16th.. so far so good.

All you have to do is get a certificate letter that points to the fact that the Cub would meet all the requirements for DOT regulations (i.e. taillight spacing, emissions, safety features, etc.) and pay a 2.4% import fee.
Are you referring to a foreign buyer program? I believe the manufacturer has to present this document... At least for Canada. Does Honda Mexico do these? It's not enough that your dealership sign a piece of paper. We would see a lot more foreign bikes if that would be enough. I hope it works for you...
