Modern chains are so good centerstands are totally outmoded imo. Its just not worth the weight or ground clearance penalty to make occasional chain lubing ever so slightly more convenient.

On the dual sport end Kawak nor any of the other Japanese makers are doing much. The Japanese makers easily lead the pack when it comes to purebread dirt bikes though.
