Where in Canada?
In Quebec or Ontario, your bike will have to pass an inspection.
I dont know for other provinces.

Goggle the subject. I did all the paper work for a Harley from Bahrain to Canada. Much the same as from US. Allow a couple of months for the paperwork to get back to you. I believe all you have to do is get clearance with Suzuki that there is no recall on your bike(year/model). I'm assuming you bought the bike in Dubai.

I didn't see that. What standards does your bike meet? There should be a sticker on it with these details. It must be constructed to either Canadian or U. S. safety standards. I don't know what that means for a motorcycle, but when you find out, please let us all know.

You need to correspond with the Canadian authorities and perhaps with one of Suzuki's regional headquarters to get info that might be needed for Canada.

Once you cost out the price of shipping, you may want to consider selling and buying one here, ship your accessories here maybe? Some good deals here on low mileage used bikes.

Second this notion.

That may be the best advice in this thread.

I foresee many many costs and hassles associated with conveying something
so heavy such a long distance, through so many thickets of red tape. There
are also numerous opportunities for officials and Pooh-Bahs to demand bribes.

Your costs will be enormous, and one of the most expensive and tiresome
nuisances will be ignorance. "I don't know how to do what you need, so go
wait in Louie's line and Louie will help you in a couple of hours, maybe."
(Actually, the only believable part is the "maybe".)

You will pay huge fees for crating and freight, and the bike may get damaged.
The delays will be substantial, and you probably will have to pay to have your
crated motorcycle hauled from Montréal to Toronto, where you will be hit for
a storage fee, one month minimum, etc.

Alternatively, do you WANT to ride from Montréal to Toronto in November???

-----------whereas----------

The costs associated with buying a new Strom in Canada are things you
can know and negotiate, and when you get done you will have a new bike.
As a newcomer to Canada's winter, you are not going to want to ride until
spring, and you will have plenty of time to drool over new machines ...

I think nuke is correct.
