2) Everything I found I could buy in US for about have the price (really, I have owned 3 used BMW touring bikes).
3) Very few MC shops, and their inventory is very limited.
4) About half the bikes I found do not have a title. Wow, whats with that?

Would you really want to go touring on a motorcycle in Taiwan? I can barely tolerate driving a car here for any length of time. The roads, traffic systems and other drivers just make it a seriously unfun experience.
Taiwan has an active smuggling system and they bring in all kinds of stuff large motorcycles being one of them. For example: Steal motorcycle in Japan or The US, smuggle to Taiwan and after shipping, bribes and theft it's all profit.
