Importing a 2012 ktm adventure 990 from USA?

Does anyone have any info on doing this? The USA dealer says he did just that recently with no issues. And I've read some posts here with people saying they have too.
But riv seems to say anything newer than 2007 is inadmissible.

So any ideas? Can it be done or not?

Wicked ship it

I would have him ship it to the boarder and when it clears give him his money.
As far as I have read here and other places it is not impossible but but very close to and could cost a lot of money.
Also read the post at the top of the Canadian page http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=272413
But what do I know i am just a simple man

That is an option for sure. However I have also heard that if ktm will give a letter saying the USA bikes are the same as Canadian ones then that will work. And apparently ktm will sometimes do that.

KTM will definitely do that for a registered importer.
Whether it's a dealer or MIAC or somebody else.
FYI the info on MIAC was given to me straight from KTMNA as the easiest way to do this, and proven very helpful as we imported an 09 for my friend.

thanks, it's definitely an option, as i'd be saving over $4k even with the import fees, and getting the exact bike i want..

Checking the RIV inclusion list, I determine that KTM's 2008 and newer, there is no chance at all of bringin in a U.S. delivered bike into Canada.

as discussed above, the riv list isnt the definitive yes/no list..

there are plenty of bikes not on that list that have been bought in.

my friend got a 2007 bike in from europe, which is obviously not on the list as that's USA only..

Well, it's not my money. So, I guess just buy the bike, and see what happens. What's the worst that can happen? A new bike sitting in some border town storage lockup? Perfect.

so MIAC can do it for sure... downside is they want $1000 plus the $250 brokerage fee to do it...

im waiting for ktm canada to call me back.. if i can sweet talk them into giving me the letter i can do it without MIAC...
but it is definitely possible..

Wow that used to be $500+$250
Hopefully KTM Canada can assist
If not try KTM NA they are controlling Canada anyway
