Selling expiring bike in Malaysia instead of scrapping


Recommended Posts

I have a CB400 super 4 whose COE is about to expire and is non-renewable. The bike is in great condition -- only 70k km, I'd love to keep it many more years, but sadly cannot.

I've heard that you don't really get a good price for the bike if you scrap it in Singapore. So I am wondering, is it possible to drive the bike over to JB and sell it there, where they don't have our silly laws? I guess my question has two parts:

1. Is it legal? and

2. Is it likely to get me more money than if I scrap it in SG?

1) Not legal - Unless you shipped to Indonesia and reshipped it back to Malaysia.. (verified with exporters)

2) Yes and no, Yes if you tear the parts and sell it separately.. No if you scrap it as whole..

Kindly read thru at least the intro section first before decide to post any comments.... thanks... :cool:

Update: I contacted LTA, and they reported that this is actually fine! As long as you can prove the vehicle was registered in Malaysia, they will accept the Malaysian registration as proof of deregistration from Singapore (even if you just rode it over yourself).

So next question... Anyone know how to register a foreign vehicle in Malaysia?
