Quick Question for Hmorro or any other Mexicanos
Do I need to have a Mexican address/residency/anything to buy and register a bike in Mexico?
Hasta donde yo se no necesitas ningùn documento para comprar una moto en mexico que no sean los billetes para pagar, para el registro creo que si es necesario comprobar un domicilio en la localidad donde quieres registrar el vehiculo.
Acording to my knowledge, you don`t need anything else than money in order to buy a motorcycle here in Mexico, however I think you will be asked to give an adress in order to register it.
You may have to show an immigration document FM2 or FM3 to be able to register the bike. I have always been asked for one. These documents show that you are a legal resident in the country. You can always fix things up someway and you may need to hire the services of a "gestor" who will arrange everything for you. It may depend on where you buy the bike the smaller the city probably the easier it is.
My question is why you would buy a bike here and not in the States?
If yiou need more help send me an email,
No problem, you can buy it and get a license plate with just a single phone bill and your ID, normally the bike dealer will take care of the tramits, they have their own "gestores".
Bikes here are more expensive than in the US, maybe only BMW are a little closer to US prices, maybe 10% more.
If there is anything else that I can help with, drop me an e-mail.
Gracias. Looking to buy a bike in Centro America in the next couple of months (2nd hand Honda XR650R, Yamaha WR450 or similar, if anyone has any clues), may extend my search into Mexico, just wondering if there were any particular problems.
