    FWIW, Major international motorcycle brands available in Thailand that are legally available in PR China, pricing comparison. On a side note, I was interested to see that the KTM-CFmoto Duke 200 & 390 models are being sold in India for a lot less than what the MSRP are here. KTM Dike 390 is about 190,000 India Rupee which equates to 19,000 CNY, yet the prices here are near enough 50,000 CNY. This is not a comparison of makes and models available in other markets, but rather solely what is being offered in Thailand and the make/models MSRP versus the same make/model as available LEGALLY in PRC.

    Check out some of the official legal PRC pricing... especially Honda, note the CTX700 is only 99000 CNY and the 500cc Honda's are well priced for PRC. The BMW MSRP also continues to slide downward with the introduction of BMW Motorrad China in 2013. Before any one runs out the door to secure their BMW though it's worth reading...> BMW thoughts

    While pricing still seems remarkably high on some imported models, others have seen substantial decreases. Also worth bearing in mind that some other countries have import duties and taxes substantially higher than PRC, and given the nature of the local market here, parts are generally more accessible than some of those other expensive locations.
    All of this surely only means positive things for PRC riders... with pricing seemingly on a downward trajectory and available models increasing... long live the capitalist model in PRC.

    As always, YMMV.

    Great stuff - a lot of work! Thanks for posting it, as it is quite interesting.

    As for the truth about BMWs ... have you ever tried to talk religion with a believer? Especially if the believer is from the Holy Land? (i.e., Germany) You get the same response as you get if you were to say to a parent ... "your kid is ugly." Hahaha. Of course, I always say that if it is a R1200C (voted on advrider as one of the all-time Fugly bikes!).

    Little vignette ... while in Canada, I stopped by the BMW/Ducati dealer and had a chat with a guy I know from way back. At his dealership, Ducs outsell BMWs by almost 2:1. I was shocked when he said "yeah, people know that the Italians are more reliable these days." My oh my, how times have changed from when I was a yungin'.

    Added the MSRP for CBR300 now being sold in the mainland.

    Amended pricing for inclusion of Thai made F800GS (ABS, TC).

    I witnessed several expats in Chiang Mai take delivery of new Thai manufactured F800GS's and a few other models at Barcelona BMW CM (car and motorrad dealership), over several visits to the dealership to have my GS serviced or farkles added on different days in my two months in northern Thailand.
    I was envious as the 800GS is priced less than 700GS costs in PRC, and the 800GS has better dirt credentials compared to the 700GS. One new owner had paid his deposit Oct '14 and he'd been waiting so long as he only took delivery in Feb '15. He paid the MSRP of 530,000 THB and then another 140,000 THB fitting farkles. The 800GS in bright red, looked a stunner. He didn't care that the bike was not the colour he'd pre-ordered.

    In the workshop (very tidy though full) were mainly R1200GS's, F800GS's and a couple of F/G650GS singles. No F700GS's at all.
    The price of the Thai made 800GS is pretty competitive...
