Used Scooters in Cairo, 2-wheel vehicle import ban

Used Scooters in Egypt

I read about the government ban:

'In May Protected content , the Egyptian Ministry of Trade and Industry issued a decree banning the importation of motorcycles and three-wheel vehicles, except for tricycles and chassis for trade. The decree bans the importation of CBUs (Completely Built Units) yet allows the importation of SKD (Semi Knocked Down) motorcycle chassis and engines. This ban remains in place today.

I see many Protected content Protected content scooters for sale (brands like: Kymco, Hawa, & Sym), in Cairo on a couple of websites.

How can this bike be for sale if the ban has been in place since Protected content ? Sym Protected content

Excuse my ignorance, but If you can help shed some light on this for me, I'd appreciate it.
