    Default Pakistan Customs Tariff

    The Government of Pakistan has once again gone on to do the only one thing they are good at; increasing the custom duties. It looks like they have researched and exploited every available industry to fill their pockets. This time they have targeted the Super bike imports. Instead of bringing reforms for the introduction of Motorsports in Pakistan, they are encouraging the affectees to get Non-Custom-Paid bikes.

    The rates have experienced a sudden increase from a constant charge of
    $ 4.25 /CC to $9.53/CC for 1000CC bikes
    $13.26/CC for 600CC bikes

    Detailed rates could be seen in the attached image.

    A simple demonstration:

    Yamaha R1 2012 1000CC (UK Cost ? 11,000 Ebay)
    Total updated cost 2.6 million instead of 2.0 million

    Yamaha R6 2012 600CC (UK Cost ? 8,000 Ebay)
    Total updated cost 2.4 million instead of 1.6 million

    Such a drastic increase! Not to mention the steep devaluation of Pakistani Currency (PKR) that has rendered the Sterling (GBP) quite out of reach.

    The irony of this situation is the fact that this keeps happening; first the imported cars and now bikes. Some would say that the Government has taken these measures to protect the Balance of trade and payments but this doesn't mean that the society must be deprived of decent quality products. Even if these measures were taken to protect the local industry, what do the Pakistanis get? Let?s take an example of local automobile industry; we have highly inflated prices but crappy cars. The locally assembled sedan category commences with PKR 0.6 million Suzuki Mehran (Is that even a car?) and goes on to PKR 2.4 million for Honda Civic (I guess, we would all agree to the fact that this car is not even close to meeting the International automobile standards).

    The said rates won?t affect new bikes alone rather a much deeper effect would be absorbed by the local second-hand market; this change would shift the demand from new imports to already-imported bikes and any bike which could now be bought for PKR 0.6 million would be climbing PKR 1.0 million in no time. This duty valuation would become the advent of cruelty, where many futuristic bikers would let go of their passions. Who knows that in absence of these tariffs, one of us could have been the Casey Stoner or Valentino Rossi or GenPro?

    Sir its just that we moderate earning people who can spend around 5-6 lakhs for a sports bike cant even get hands on a decent pre 2005 R1 though they used to be cheap..Just due to these hillarious custom policies we cant even get hands on older models..

    lets put some light on the probs we are facing :-

    1) The demand for motorcycles is stagnating at 750 – 775,000 units per annum. This does not give the required critical mass for the development of the industry and for generating exports

    2) Cost of locally manufactured components is generally considered high.

    3) Tax incidence of locally manufactured motorcycles is very high rendering them uncompetitive in the export markets. The cost of
    production of a 70 CC motorcycle in Pakistan is US$595 versus US$530 for India, and US$501 for Thailand.

    lets see what are the solutions :-

    1) Give the R&D support of 15% of the free on-board (FOB) cost per motorcycle unit imported.

    2) The market can be substantially increased through provision of bank financing for purchases of motorcycles as it is available for automobiles, three wheelers, Luvs, trucks etc.

    3) Cost of producing parts and components locally can be brought down by

    > Establishing raw material coops under the Private Sector

    >Establishment of Technology Acquisition Fund to assist parts and component manufacturers to acquire technology.

    And if Suzuki is really serious about bringing those big bikes in Pak next year, they should rethink their plans because not many will buy them on such sky high prices..

    Give Mr. Khappay another term and R1 will cost as much as a Rolls Royce.
    it has one reason bro, kawasaki was banned in 1992, coz there partner in(S.N.K) pakistan didnt payed the custom duty on kawasaki products, which were imported during era of 1982 to 1992,

    You cannot import directly from india.You can buy and import in dubai then reimport to pakistan.Its shitty as hell..Not feasible
    The one thing that unites all human beings, regardless of age, gender, religion, economic status, is that, deep down inside, we all believe that we are above-average drivers.
