It is time for a change...
Yes, the 9xx Adventure was starting to show it's age. Don't get me wrong because they're still exceptionally fun bikes, but they're due for a revamp.
If Triumph can come out with a 1200 and an 800... I'm sure KTM will follow suit in the years to come.
In fact, if KTM were to eventually add a lighter version in the next few years... there would be a helluva lot of used 9xx's on the market to part source.
Only time will tell.
