It does have the escapement, as I've made the test in the video clip.

Hi - I'm new here because I've searched infos to my own CLP990 which I've bought here in Germany in 2001.
Please excuse my rosty school-english - I'm an older man.
Still today I think this CLP-990 is the best digital keyboard YAMAHA has ever produced. And my enthusiasmn playing on this piano is still the same as in the first days when I got it.
I'm only an amatuer-player and the most I play without sheetMusic only from what I've heard.
My rage starts with JSBACH and end in Jazz and Blues.
The CLP-990 itself is a rudimental toy-box - nothing for people which want to get complete music only with one-finger tip. No - the CLP-990 is a real piano with only few sound. But for me its enough. Mostly in softer Music I use the grandpiano mixed with soft-stings (here an improvisation about an old german pop-song. Recorded via Headphone-connector to an iKEY-MP3-Recorder - sorry in between I've switched down the gain a little - but what you can listen to is the REAL sound of the CLP-990):
https://docs.google.com/file/d/0BzQwpPH9AlUgV1R2X0R2SVFlSUU/edit?usp=sharing

So far to the sound. My intention here is another one: - Thanx 4 the very interesting pictures und youtube-link. But what I'm looking for is a replacement of the Floppy-Drive in the front to something with USB.
So I ask you: has someone experiances in replacing this floppy-drive to a Floppe-Emulator???
All I can find are floppy-emulators for PC like this: http://www.ipcas.de/produkte/usb-disketten-emulation.html
I dont know if those boxes can work with my CLP-990.

@trandinhnamanh,

Yes, the CLP-990M that I now own does have a subtle escapement simulation as you mention which also allows you to play softer "pp" notes from the escapement point, or, "off of the jack" - just like an acoustic grand piano.

Also, here is my review and a few recordings, here:

It's amazing that a DP I bought brand new over a decade ago that I play everyday is still the talk of the town all these years later, and still plays like new.

A decade since the CLP990. Today's Clavinovas use a folded action, do not feature 88-note sampling, and remain at 5 velocities. No physical modeling whatsoever, and no soundboard (a la Kawai).

I would imagine they wouldn't want it competing with the NU1 and N1.

It couldn't have been cheap and if they were to have this model instead of, say, the NU1, they would have to explain why it's better than Kawai's CA or CS line. That's harder than explaining why the NU1 might be better.

How very true - which speaks volumes for the quality of the CLP-990M.

And, to think that I was actually able to locate and buy a 12 year old piano (i.e., CLP-990M) and get it shipped well over 750 miles to my place with a long distance piano mover. Not an inexpensive venture - if you do this.

It was worth every penny to own one, though!
