Motorcycle Buying Process Question

0 Replies



Hi guys, I'm coming from Norway for a one-year program and since I'll be travelling back and forth a lot to school, I've been thinking about getting a motorcycle. I'm licensed in Norway. I was wondering if anyone could help me clarify what the typical buying process of a used motorcycle is in Switzerland? Here typically, you would find and pay for the bike, then it needs to pass a safety before you can plate it (this can involve having it brought to a mechanic) and then it needs to be insured before finally you can legally drive it. This process tends to involve a lot of either getting friends with a truck to help you move the bike or renting a trailer. Is it similar in Zurich? or is there a window where you can you ride it home once you've bought it and then go through the insurance process? Thanks!
