Default Superbike Parts Importer / Supplier

Is there an importer of SBK spare parts in Bangalore or any of the cities in India? I’m looking to import a few parts but would need an Indian invoice to claim insurance. I have contacted a few outstation dealers and they can get the parts for shipment. Issue is who can import them.
Direct import is ruled out since I won’t be getting the required invoice.
Appreciate any pointers and leads.
TIA!

Wasnt there one by the name of KRP in Delhi? You could check them if no one in BLR is found.

Jay,
Good to see you back on BHP portal, Do know of one guy in Bangalore but not quite sure if he can give you a valid import invoice which can help you claim insurance. Other mode is you get import it directly but use your dealer's account to make the payouts. That should facilitate as well.

Thanks. Have spoken to them. Waiting for their estimate.

No invoice defeats the purpose, otherwise I could have bought it myself during my outstation trips. Well dealer, I might as well forget him since he is nowhere to be found. Am in touch with the service manager though, but he is useful only after I get the parts.

Thanks. I spoke to Adnan. He's checking from his end too.

JVH, you could purchase the parts you need from Indiana, Yamaha, Suzuki, ATV, Motorcycle, Dealer, Xtreme Motorsports and have them shipped to India. You could then pay the duty at your post / customs office on the tax invoice you receive from them.
Better still, you could purchase the parts from BikeBandit.com at a slight premium, but the good thing is they will send you an invoice for goods delivered at your doorstep inclusive of shipping and import duty which would faciliate insurance claim procedures.

Manmeet, Jayant requires an invoice billed in India to file an insurance claim.

Jayant- Check with Vicky Jaising from PRS. They stock most SBK parts (aftermarket). He might be able to get the parts down for you and provide an Indian invoice.

I hope all this is resolved soon. Missing you and the duc on the rides.

Ok, noted. In that case, JVH could have a family member or a friend running a trading business (even a small enterprise) import the parts from the above mentioned portals and then invoice them to him with local applicable sales tax, etc.

Thanks a lot for your suggestions guys!

I got a quote from KRP. Their final quote is similar to what Ducati Bangalore had given before their insane price increase. Now what I would like to know is how is KRP's lead time, any issues faced in shipping, and goof ups, if any.

I got a quote from Ducati Geneva too. They are willing to ship here but with a foreign invoice.

Am in touch with another New Delhi based company who haven't provided a quote yet but I've been told that the lead times are faster.
