But customs clearance of a motorcycle in Ukraine has its own characteristics. After it, it is necessary to certify the vehicle and register it.

The main features of the motorcycle customs clearance process are that:
- The size of the excise depends on the size of the engine;
- it doesn’t matter the age of the technique;

So, how much will customs clearance of a motorcycle cost? Here is an example of customs clearance of a motorcycle from America or Europe.
Purchased a vehicle with an engine capacity of 600 cc3 for 1500 euros.
You need to pay a fee: 1500 * 10% = 150 euros.
The excise tax will be: 600 cm3 * 0.443 euros for 1 cm3 = 265.8 euros.
VAT is equal to: (1500 + 150 + 265.8) * 20% = 383.16 euros.
Total you need to pay: €150 + €265.8 + €383.16 = €798.96. Plus a $15 customs clearance fee.
In the initial calculation, always take into account the correspondence of the purchase price to the price of the motorcycle in the Customs Catalogue. If the catalog is higher, then calculate based on it.
