i tried but there was no help.... i give up and there was no information available because it was just useless information
You can buy cars and motorbikes new at any showroom. They're all over the place. Importing a vehicle is very costly indeed, takes a very long time and is heavily restricted. In addition, a bike bigger than 250cc is illegal for you. You will need to first obtain a license to drive a sub-250cc machine and hold it for one year before you can even apply for a license to ride anything bigger. Plus, you also said you're going to be a student. That means you'll be parking around campus, which means your bike will get stolen or vandalized very quickly if it looks "nice."
