    Badge engineering, put an appropriate badge on it and go for it...

    Take the 500 badges off and replace them with 250 badges and tell them it's what ever they want to hear.

    Probably

    Its meant to be a national list
    But
    in SA and NSW a 2001 KTM 400 exc is not on the list as they specify the year
    ( my guess its a typo with regard to when they started making them as as the 360/380 and 510/520 exc's are)

    weird

    Id ask KTM


    Whereas WA Qld & Vic the year is not specified so i guess its on.
    Note: this may not be the universe where the above is relevant.

    There's a really helpful PDF on the SA DOT website.
    The 400EXC is only listed as a 2008-2011 model, so you're probably shit out of luck because of this:

    A motorcycle must:
     Be the standard model and variant as specified on the above list; and
     Not be modified in any way that increases its power-to-weight ratio.
    https://www.sa.gov.au/__data/assets/.../LAMS-List.pdf

    That trranslates as "Not on the list, not approved."

    Interestingly, WA uses the same list but does not specify model year so it would be fine over here.

    You could transport it to WA, sell it as a LAMS model then use the cash to buy something compliant over there.

    Or ride around out of class if you're that way inclined.
