I canīt see (hope) that KTM thinks itīs a good idea to drop the rallyworld at a time when rallying gets a bigger and bigger crowd. The Tuareg is growing, more people find Albania, there are new rallies popping up all the time that arenīt all to expensive.
Surley most of them appeal to modified endurobikes, but the rallyscene is growing. So is exploring the world (allthough most of it is about discovering your backyard) by bike, and there is no better machine to do that then a Rally/Adventure bike.
The salesdrop on the 640/950/990 adventure I think came from when they got more and more road oriented.

And I for one doesnīt care if they rally on a 450, and I can get my hands on a 690 Replica.

Tis allmost got into

690 "DIY" thread (incl. "Rallybike build"):
