It's a bit of a joke. I imported my 2007 990 in 2009. I couldn't import an '08 because it wasn't on the RIV list.

KTM is also doing something similar with parts. I use to order a bunch of stuff from KTMtwins, but now they are not allowed to ship parts to Canada, I suspect for the same reason (to keep Canadians paying higher prices). Now, with parts, I order from cheapcycleparts.com, who have really decent prices on KTM parts, and I get them shipped to a shipping agent in Lewiston, NY (I live in Hamilton). The shipping agent keeps your packages for as long as you need to pick them up, and they only charge you $5 per package.

Before or after you try to bring it into Canada?

Can you register in a US state, get plates and drive it to Canada? (worst case scenario)?

Call these guys. Been told they can get it in but they are not cheap, last I heard it was around $1000. Good luck.

I spoke with them a few months ago and felt confident I could import a post 2007 KTM with them. Haven't done it because my DR 650 is outstanding for my needs. Call them - I doubt you're f---'d. Will cost some, but still a relative deal. Good luck, let us know.
