Question BMW in Singapore

Is there a BMW shop in Singapore? I might be relocating there if this opportunity plays out.

Shanks!

And there is also M-Technik in Paya Ubi Industrial Park that is an aftermarket shop who does LOTS of BMW work and has a full line of Touratech accessories.

I live in Mount Vernon, WA but am currently in Singapore visiting my mother. You'll be shocked to note the BMW motorcycles in Singapore are almost double the prices of those in the US! There's only one BMW motorcycle dealer. Riding in Singapore is very challenging in my opinion where bikers can lane split anytime anywhere and anyhow (maybe a Singaporean biker can correct me on this.. ). Just yesterday, while walking on the sidewalk, a biker rode his bike onto the pavement to take a short cut and no one really cared.

All and all, I do wish I have a bike here where I can ride to Malaysia or Thailand.

Oh yes, it's okay to be a squid here since most do (due to the weather).

Any other motorcycle shops?

Sorry for using your thread, Dude69, but I figure you will be interested in this question too.

Question for the Singapore bikers, where are the other motorcycle shops that sell Suzuki, Honda, etc?

As stated already BMW are here in Singapore, as are most other brands although not always with there full line of bikes. HD are here to. Bake and cars are expensive here due to high import duties and the need for a COE (certificate of entitlement) that allows you to buy a vehicle. But resale is also very high.

Recently Kawasaki have started manufacturing in Thailand as have Triumph that has redused pricing on some models.

Dude69, do a search and you'll find all the main dealers, unfortunately they are spread around the city. For secondhand bikes look aroud the jalan Besar area of Little India, lots of dealers of bikes and gear.

yes there are other brand here. U can google online for Honda it'Nnns main dealer is boon siew, yamaha is hong Leong Corp. Suzuki and Kawasaki I'm not sure. But just to let you know that when u buy bikes frm the dealers u may have to pay abit higher price.. But shops along jelan besar and serangoon road as well as bukit merah will sell at even higher price than the main dealer

best you get from the deAler instead of other shops. A very bad act of greed for Singaporean or maybe can say most country. When foreginers buy stuffs the price will sure be higher than the local.. This include some transportation like taxis and mini buses.

Just my personel opinion

The er6n is produced here in Thailand and available and I talked to a Russian that owns one in my bldg and he said $7500 and that is a verified price.
And it's $4500 in the States-go figure.

Price of the GS

Does anyone know what the price of a new R1200GS is in Singapore buying from BMW?
I am after the old air-cooled not the water cooled one..

I didn't see any R1200GS around when i visited PML last week and their latest price list didn't indicate any GS too. Only adventure available.

Probably because the liquid-cooled GS is coming.

Just for clarification: do you need a COE for bikes or just for cars?
