'07 & '08 are the go no issues at all, but a good condition low km '06 would also be fine
I assume you're referring to only the 650. I have an '05 FE450 that has been as reliable as a hammer. However, when I decided to find a 650 to dual sport, I definitely wanted an '07-'08.
2012 Husaberg TE300 - "Huzinger"

'05 Husaberg FE450E - Sold
'03 KTM 640AdvR - Sold, and I miss her
Several other KTMs, Suzukis, etc.
