Procedures and regulations to import a motorcycle are similar to that of importing cars into Singapore. Except for a few significant differences: 

  • Customs duty based on the OMV is lower than car imports
  • All motorcycles must comply with exhaust emission standards stated in the Code of Federal Regulations (40 CFR 86.410-80), native to the U.S.

Note: Exhaust emission testing is not available in Singapore.

  • Reduced ARF based on the OMV compared with car imports
