Here's the stupid rule from CA's DMV site:
"What should a California resident look for when buying a new vehicle from another state?
Individuals are prohibited from importing, purchasing, or leasing a new vehicle from another state, unless the vehicle was manufactured for sale in California, and the Environmental Protection Agency label certifies the vehicle has California smog equipment. California considers a new vehicle to be any vehicle with less than 7,500 miles on the odometer at the time of purchase.
For more information, please call DMV at (800) 777-0133."
I've heard of a few people who have obtained a P.O. Box (Mailbox etc.) out of state and just register their MV's there. You could also contact Cagiva to find out if the MVs are 50 state legal (I think the current Ducatis are 50 state certified). If it is, then it may not be a problem.
