Looking at 2012 990. Good price?

Hi all. I'm looking at my first dual sport/adventure bike. I'm coming from sportbikes, I no longer race and got sick of riding our looooong, straight roads here in Texas!

Love the reported offroad capabilities of the KTM 9XX series though also considering the Triumph Tiger (less $$$) and Duc Multi (read they're close to sportbike performance). I'll be riding some two up, definitely hitting the very few dirt roads we have in the area and wanted to romp on it a few times.

I rented a Vstrom 650 in Denver and while I loved the idea found it an absolute slow turd. Especially two up. I've owned the lighter brother, SV650.

Going to look a KTM 990 Adv. with 6600 miles on the clock. Dealer asking $13K, said it's in great shape. Only add ons is a full, dual Remus exhaust. Thoughts?
