Hi all. I bought a 2013 Genuine Scooter Co Stella & enjoyed a couple of seasons with it in Palm Springs. However I have recently relocated to St. John's Newfoundland Canada, not so balmy but still a great place & I was hoping my Stella would come here with me.

I transported her as far as Idaho then learned GSC scooters are not on the list of vehicles that can be imported from the US into Canada. So she is stored in a friend's garage until I figure out if something can be done to get her here.

Anyone have any knowledge of what might be done (maybe a modification) to get her across the border?

Cheers!

I know they can be imported because Ive seen two of them driving around the streets of Toronto with Ontario plates on so it is possible.
Im seeing a friend who works for Transport Canada Ill see if she can get any more information for you or a Number you can at least call to talk to a human to get a real answer.

Yeah you should be able to get it imported. Motoretta imported them to Canada for several years, as the Stella page on the main MotorScooterGuide.net site describes.

There will be some hoops to jump through, like getting it safety inspected and some paperwork, but it shouldn't be too hard. I don't think it will need any mechanical changes.

Is it possible to just buy a Canadian Stella and sell your USA Stella ? ( seems like an easy way to do it to me )
