Hi,

A current idea for a trip is to fly to the USA, buy two new XT250s, do a longish trip then bring the bikes back home to the UK with us.

Anyone know if it's possible to import a new-ish XT250 into the UK?

Thanks,

Ian.

All the xt225's & gen2 xt250's that are here in the UK are grey imports.

These people do it all the time, ask them. They usually have some in stock.

Thanks Paul.

I'll bear that in mind.

Main unknown at the moment is whether or not an XT250 will pass the emissions test it will likely have to have as part of the approval. I believe it depends on the CO percentage.
