silver and orange 2003 640 Adv ?

Does anyone know what the colours were for the 2003 onwards 640 Adventures? Could you still get an orange and silver bike in this year?

I'm trying to find a 2003 bike (or later) but seem to keep finding late registered 2002 spec bikes being sold as 2003. As we all know the differences between a 2002 spec and a 2003 are pretty drastic!

A list of colours available from 2003 onwards would be great if anyone knows them all.


Cheers!!!

Dave

As far as I know the 2003 bikes have solid black seat, silver & grey body.

take a look at http://www.ktm-lc4.net/

click on the "Modelle" button on bottom left. You can then see pics of each model according to the year. Unfortunately only goes up to 2001 though.

Its easy...2003 Adventures are the only year to have a BLACK tail end (silver front). Previous model years are ORANGE tailed and later model years the entire bike is ORANGE.
Personally, I think the 2003 is the bargain since it has the improved main shaft bearing, oil site glass, and hydrolic clutch and sold from 7,100-8,400 New.
The later model years only boast an unecessary/costly extra rotor and low rallye style stick/mud-magnet front fender and oil-cooling squirt onto bottom of cylinder (the only worthwile improvement IMO) and are reportedly selling from 8,500-10,000 USD. There was a guy on ADVrider.com selling a clean 2003 Adventure in canada for 5,200 USD recently (a steal)--might still be availble if you check under the flea market section. At that price, you could buy luggage, come tour N. America and, still have enough dough to ship it home with the money you would save over buying new.

The most accurate method is by the VIN no. You can find the key on the NET search VIN KTM KEY or something like this. Single digit in the vin # is the year model.
