I talked to [the western regional rep] with KTM during the demo ride for the 1190 and 1190 R here in Fresno.
Part of our conversation was why stop production of the 950/990? His answer was that KTM's current focus is expanding their street bike market and that the 1190 is a push in that direction.
If the 700/800 twin is a push in that direction I would think it logical that they'd be headed there, especially if it fills a void in their new, street line-up.
