Hi zone559. I think you'll find a rather large heap of information on these subjects in the forums here. I suggest you first try clicking around and perhaps make use of the search function.

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."
