KTM 1190 Adv R Price. Buy USA or Austria/Germany?

I'm likely getting orders to Germany here soon and I'm wondering if I should buy this bike in the USA or wait till I'm overseas?

Buy it stateside. It doesn't seem logical, but they cost more from the factory in Austria than they do in the U.S. Plus registering it when you get back home will be much easier if it was originally a US bike. I'm not saying it can't be done, but you know how the .gov is... I did a couple tours in Germany myself, have a nice tour!

Taco supreme has a point.
Trying to import a euro bike could present a lot of problems. Smog issues come to mine. I think dmv here look for the emission sticker. I think euro bike would not have the USA emission sticker.

Check the dollar vs Euro to see if there is a financial advantage with one over the other.

in Belgium a standard Adventure costs about 13.500 euro. A (very) well equiped one will set you back 18.000 euro.
So that's $18.500 for the base model and $24.500 for a neer to full option.

Dunno about the prices in the U.S.....

I picked up my standard last week in California for $18500 (out the door after tax, licensing, everything). Looks like nearly identical pricing.

Buy stateside or go through AAFES once you get there. I bought a bike once while deployed through them. But if you do buy a Euro model you will have to bring to US specs.

What nobody is mentioning is that the local prices quoted here all include VAT (19/20% in GER/AUT) and other local vehicle taxes. I assume being US military you won't have to pay those if you register the bike on American plates?

I would figure that out so that you can properly compares prices.

Purchase price is one thing. As mentioned you will better want to think about how to get the bike over the pond and back. Will the USAF pay for both ways transport? Can you buy the bike tax-free in Germany? Will KTM honor a U.S. warranty in Germany? There´s a two year manufacturer´s warranty on the bikes in Germany and you can purchase an additional two years for a nominal amount.

Should you be heading to the southwestern parts of Germany (Ktown, Ramstein, Frankfurt) let me know once you´re set up and I give you a tour of the area.
Cheers
Chris

Taxes in Belgium are 21%. And you will have to pay them (unless you have an enterprise). Maybe you can collect them back, but it will not be easy...

Are you just saying that or do you actually know how vehicles from US military personnel stationed in Europe are handled?

Even as a private individual you don't pay VAT or other local taxes if you are exporting the vehicle (even to another EU country, as you will have to pay it there), and I think this also applies to US vehicles that stay in the country, but are formally US registered.

This is why it's popular to buy cars in countries in the North of Europe and export them, as the local prices are insanely high, but the net price is lower than in most others.

Every dealer I talked to is quoting $16,799 for it in the states. I've been considering the new water cooled 1200GS Adventure too but it's at $22k. $5k more for a bike thats not as capable offroad? If KTM backed their bikes up with a similar warranty as BMW I would be signing papers right now.
