2007 KTM 990 Adv information

I have seen a local KTM with 12K on the odometer that looks pretty good. When I try to google this, it always comes up as a 950/990 until 2009, when it's called a 2009 model-present.

So.... Is this really a 950 with a slightly bigger motor? What is the reliability of this year? I know the 05.5 models are better than the prior years. Is this considered the first of the 990's and a model prone to bugs?

Any information on this would be helpful. The 07-08 models seem to be hard to specifically identify issues for.

Google better-- like 2007 KTM 990

I think low speed throttle operation was the biggest issue. Folks will probably pipe in with information.

First year for 990 is 2006, last year for 950 was 2005
Generally speaking, 2006-07-08 are the less desirable years for 990s because of the throttle response mentioned above, but they don't have any different issues that may have newer bikes.
06-08 have a nicer dashboard than 2010-12 though

Model year differences:
KOTH: The following differences between model years are related to the actual year of manufacture of the bike, not the year on the registration. KTM's model year runs from June to May. For example, A true 2004 bike was manufactured between June 1, 2003 and May 31, 2004. A true 2005 bike between June 1, 2004 and May 31, 2005, etc, etc. There are were a few instances when bikes with even earlier build dates were shipped as later year models. Whether this was due to an effort to clean out inventory or a need to meet production demands, the latest updates should have been done before they left the Factory. Still, it behooves the owner of such a bike to carefully go over it to make sure all pertinent Tech Bulletins have been taken care of.
The bikes are registered in their destination countries as the year they are delivered to the dealer. I don't know how other countries do it, but KTMNA has been known to keep bikes in their warehouse for six months and release them to the dealers after the start of the New Year. So just cuz your bike's registration says you have an '04, '05, '06, '07, etc. Doesn't necessarily mean you do. Many of the differences listed below are visible upon close examination of your bike. That and the build date from the KTM Dealer-Net are the surest way to tell the actual year of your Katoom. The designation XXXX.5 is not used in KTM's documentation to denote actual year of build, so look for yourself, if you really want to know (important for certain maintenance and tech Bulletins).

Thanks for the information. I hit the OC Hall of Wisdom as well.

Has there been a definitive answer for the quirky throttle between 3-4.5K rpms? Haven't seen anything except for changing the fuel injection tuning with tune ECU.

Thinking of picking it up this weekend, it's a clean bike, the price is decent and at 12K miles it's not been around too much.

Curious what the market is for this bike. I have a pristine 2007 with 9K on it that I am thinking of selling because I don't have time to ride it. Gobi bags and FMF exhaust. Poor thing sits in the garage.
