Traveling can be so cheap. Way cheaper then to stay at home. Just don't buy the most expensive, newest and most computer controlled vehicle, if you want to ride further then just Starbucks.
 
Quality and longevity are far more important for a trip around the world trip than the "coolest" assistance system. Simply learn how to ride you self, then you don't need it anyway. Anyone planning a trip around the world has to be able to repair his own bike. No chance to repair it if its fully loaded with nonsense electronics. Better use old technology, which has proved for decades that its working.

If you want to go to South America or to Australia, it makes no sense at all to already buy the vehicle in Europe and then ship it around the world for 1000 Euro. For the money you can already buy a local motorcycle and sell it after the trip. If you don't look like money on legs, you wont be treated as an ATM.

On the other hand, all the parts needed are available only for local motorcycles. The theoretical argument to just order parts at home and ship them around the world does not work. By the time they arrive your visa will be expired long ago. Not talking about the expensive import tax of most of the interesting countrys.
 
Clever people simply rent a motorbike in India, travel to Nepal and make a great trip through India. India is a huge country much bigger than Europe. Then you just return the bike, hop on the plane and fly on to Thailand. With your own motorcycle in India, you can not just go to Thailand, because you can not ride through Bangladesh and Burma as a foreigner. Traveling through China would require a 24 hour guide. For this guide you also need to rent a vehicle and a driver who drives this guide. Moreover, such a journey requires a lot of bureaucracy.
So all that remains is to fly the whole motorbike from India to Thailand, which of course is complete nonsense.
 
Much more intelligent is just to rent a small local motorcycles for 3 to 4 dollars a day directly in Thailand. You can make a great trip through Thailand, then return the motorbike and rent again in Laos or Cambodia or fly straight to Vietnam.
 
In Vietnam, you can buy complete motorcycles for $ 200 and use it to travel to Laos and Cambodia, make a great trip and then just leave the bike at the airport or you can sell it to the nearest backpacker.
 
So it's utter nonsense to ship and import any motorcycles to Asia. They are much cheaper locally.
 
Australia is knows for renting or buying campers or vehicles on the spot, do great trips, and then simply resell the vehicle, before you fly to South America. It's about making a world trip yourself and not about shipping motorcycles or vehicles around the globe.
 
If you follow all these tips, then your money will last for many years on the road because otherwise the most expensive factor on a trip around the world will be the shipment and transport costs of vehicles, which are not necessary at all.
 
Again: For Africa, a cheap motorcycle from Europe is perfect. You ride down to South Africa and back to Europa on the other side.
Then you ride on to Mongolia. In Mongolia you sell or give away the motorcycle and fly on to India. In India you rent a motorbike, ride to Nepal and back to India, then fly to Thailand and rent a motorbike, then to Vietnam and then on to Australia buy and sell.
 
In the US, you can also buy extremely cheap old vehicles. So why people are still shipping so many vehicles around the world instead to use the money for traveling, I don't understand.
 
I wish you a great trip :-)
