Wouldn't it be a better idea to buy a bike here in Italy ? importing is a bit of a hassle, and having italian (or eu) reg bike would save you time and energy. It's also possible to pay for a year's insurance initially, but suspend cover for the months during which the bike is in storage. In this way you don't need to pay again until your whole 12 months have been used up even if it takes a few years to do so. I use this method so I save a few months in winter when I don't use my bike, but get full green card cover, valid also for north africa and some of the middle east.
