If you think about it, their product line is a bit thin compared to other least in the street. I think they are growing, and making good decisions about new development.

Now...they could do something about the heat management and tank venting for the 990.
This is what I thought, however a post over on the UK KTM forum was from a chap talking to the Head to KTM Switzerland. 990 Adv production is already stopped, and in the UK they are having discounts on shifting the existing ones prior to the 1190.

Pinching his words:
"Well Gentlemen - I just recently had a chat to the head of KTM Switzerland and I am sorry to inform you, that the days of our beloved 950/990 are numbered. KTM already stopped manufacturing the 950/990 Adventure. The same goes for the SM-T. Both bikes will be available as long they have them stocked in their warehouse. After that?"
Current Bikes: 2006 Honda XR650R & 2015 KTM 1190 Adventure R (build thread at )
