I was wondering if I can ride racing bikes on the streets of Bangkok.
Racing bikes I mean those with the exaust pipe right under the seat, also having racing tires.
i.e. Yamaha R1, CBR600RR or CBR1000RR

such as this one
This bike has no plate, but if it managed to get it plated, would I be able to ride on the streets of bangkok without having it taken by the police.

What are your advices regarding those racing bikes and legality?

I plan to buy one before end of year. so I'm researching now on the second hand market and looking for some deals.
and yes, I have a thai driving license and experience with 300cc bikes. this will be my first Racing learning bike Big Grin

as last resort, I would be getting a new CB500R.

Thanks a lot, appreciate any advices!

You can ride a legally imported and registered race replica on the street but privately registering an unregistered bike is extremely difficult nowadays. I have owned a Kawasaki ZX6R in Bangkok and my own experience was that this style of bike is excruciating to ride in heavy traffic.
