So the 950/990 was originally built for the Dakar back in the day. It seems like all the small bikes align with some racing class. How many bike models does KTM currently manufacture that do not align with some racing class or series?
With the 1190 being released which is not a racing bike, I wonder if they would even be interested in another class of consumer bike with no direct racing application.

I like the sound of the bike LukasM proposes. And the class exists with the F800GS, Tiger 800XC, and to some extent that new Honda NC700X.

Would they build it I think is the real question.
