Can confirm, I registered a newly imported (not new) Honda in my name. This was a year ago.

Ok go buy it but before you do get the guy to put in writing you can return bike with full refund if you can't
Let us know how you go.
The bike shop just wants a sale they will tell you anything
I would be willing to bet that even if you got that in writing, and you couldn't get it registered in your name, they wouldn't honor it by giving you your money back

Just a hunch.

My question in the OP wasn't whether a foreigner can get a bike registered in his name, but rather, what would happen IF a foreigner got stopped riding a bike not registered in his own name.

The answer is nothing, provided the foreigner can produce the reg card..

Without any reg card, they could confiscate the bike, and require the registered owner claims it from impound, or any person that bought the motorbike from the registered owner (and has thumb-stamped bill of sale and copies of the registered owners national ID to prove it) comes to claim it.

epidemiks your quote -
so unless the law has changed again since 2018 it's still possible on a first registration.

Yes correct, But the moto would not have a plate (It would not display a plate in the shop). Until it was registered in the name of who was going to have the name of ownership. Also if the tax is not paid by whom it would not get registered.
Yes. If it has a plate, its already registered.. If it doesn't have a plate, it's not registered. :stir:
