Interesting thread. I have imported three Ducatis to Sweden (where I live). Two from Germany and one from the UK . It is very easy if the vehicle is registered in another EU country. The only paperwork you need is the registration paper in original from the country you are importing from (Fahrzeugbrief in Germany, and V5C i believe in the UK). No need for the CoC document since it is already registered in an EU country, and thereby accepted in all EU countries. Then you apply for an "investigation of origin" and send in all your paperwork. The authorities check that the vehicle isn't stolen and that all vehicle data is correct. When you are cleared of that you just do a "registration-MOT" and then you're cleared to go.
Some people here uses the UK as a transit country to get rare cars in to Sweden. Especially some Japanese cars such as a Nissan Skyliner can't be imported directly to Sweden, but if you first register it in the UK the Swedish authorities must accept it, since it comes from an EU country. There are also some registered gocarts on Swedish roads that has taken the same way here.
