Well of course.. you are nuts..but.....
Yeah... check and see if they already sell them in Canada.. Canada USED to get all the cool European motorcycles we couldn't get.. it wouldn't be all that hard to get one across the border as a used vehicle... brand new is a different story.
You might also try looking in an internet directory for a Canadian motorcycle importer in Toronto who does what is called "gray market" importing.. and ask what the chances of getting a Ciao would be.. the easiest way to get it into the US is as a used vehicle.. so what they can do is sell it to his wife and then sell it to you as "used".. it'll cost you more though.
One word of warning...... be careful at the border... they won't hesitate for a second to toss you in jail if they think you are trying to pull a fast one on them.. and they will do it just to teach you a lesson.. and then you get to pay some fines.. and your Ciao gets more expensive.
It wouldn't hurt to call BOTH US Customs and Canadian Customs first and ask them the rules........ I got in trouble this summer at the border trying something similar.
What I want to know is what makes this Ciao so special?
Got any links to a picture?
