I am looking to purchase a 2011 Honda VT1300CX ABS Pearl White, but for some strange reason in Japan there do not seem to be any. I did speak to a dealer who spoke to the Honda factory who had one more parts set left that they could special order & build me the bike I want... To the tune of 1.54M or $19,750 & either a December or January delivery date. No thanks!

This is after going back & forth with multiple dealers & getting ridiculous estimates or unavailability for months.

What I will do now is try to purchase the bike in the USA & have it shipped to Japan. I figure the shipping will be about $1,000, the emissions/break scam/test once it gets here is $1,000, shipping from Osaka to Yamaguchi $500, & paperwork should be about $200. That is less than $3,000 which should still be much cheaper with the added cost of the bike than the cheapest quote I have received so far ($17,000).

The only problem is locating & purchasing the bike itself. Anyone have any ideas, know any dealers, are dealers themselves, or could help me out? Thanks!

All good suggestions, but my thing is I like the black trim of the white & black bikes 2011+. How much is shipping from Australia to Japan? Researching now.

Fantastic news, somehow magically a white ABS turned up in Hyogo. Already gave deposit, they pulled the ad from Goobike & Bikebros & in-store is listed as sold. Should have the bike in two weeks or so; now just have to get the paperwork taken care of & get final cost. I will update once I have it. Thanks to everyone for the support & assistance... Will try to be a regular here!
