From S.A directly is the only way, and they will only airfreight it, I believe they quoted me @1200 euros landed at Zurich airport when I enquired last year, not including import duty.....

Or have them shipped from the US supplier.
As I get older, I am no longer surprised at what I know, I'm surprised at how much I don't know.

Being a US importer of Rumbux Adventure Products I can tell you that it cost prohibitive for me to ship from the US to the EU.  It would be cheaper to get them direct.

Best option is to find a few mates and order3 to 5 sets, as the shipping costs can be spread out over everyone and be more reasonable.  VAT will suck.  Motorcycle parts are duty free into the US, but you should speak to a knowledgeable customs agent to find out what your realistic import costs will be.

Rumbux are well worth the trouble. I totaled my 2013 recently in a deer versus bike accident and the bike flipped and rolled. The Rumbux survived very well and neither side-wing bent enough to touch the plastic side panels. The skid plate hit a culvert and bent upward pretty good but the sump suffered no harm and the oil stayed inside the engine. I was amazed that the bike was still ridable (not by me though-I was beat up badly), however insurance totaled my Tenere. I have a new set on order for my new 2015 Tenere.

Quality stuff. Looks good. Holds up to excessive abuse. Priced right. Easy to change the oil.

BTW - the Caribous did well also. One stayed on, the other broke the lock as designed (which is replaceable) and flew off the bike. The case was reusable, although rashed pretty bad. Racks were a little tweaked but easily fixable.
