America last saw the CT series in 1986, though we’re about to get the newest version (which will be called the Trail 125) in a few months. If you can’t wait that long or you just want a pristine example of the current generation, here’s an interesting 1-mile example that was imported to California from New Zealand.
This example (VIN: JH2JD01U7PK210269) is basically brand new as it has just 1 kilometer on the odometer The seller purchased two while he was in the US military in Japan from a dealer who had imported them from New Zealand, and he says that “all these bikes were technically 1993 model years – unchanged since that time, and with 1993 VINs. It is importable only because the VIN shows it to be that old. It has been legally (and painstakingly) imported, and holds a clear Utah state title and current registration.”
Differences from the US model include upgraded lights, a parking brake on the handlebar, fully enclosed chain, non-rotateable handlebars, gauges in kilometers, and sadly, no spare fuel canteen. The seller is letting it go as he “bought it to toodle around my Utah cabin property, but I need the cash to help me build my cabin… Classic cart before horse mistake.” The listing says that it has a clear title, but it does not specify the state in which it’s registered.
