I friend of mine just got back from a six month stay in the U.S. He bought himself a bike when he was there for $1500 and planned to bring it back to Europe with him, but the cheapest price he could find for shipping was $2800, so he left it behind.

When you import a bike into any European country you have to go through a process called homologation, an inspection to make sure that it conforms to the local regulations. The paperwork is not all that expensive (about 100 euros), but you might have to replace parts like mufflers and such if they don't conform.

I think unless it's a rare and valuable bike it would probably not be worth while to try and import it it Europe.
