i'd guess KTM is evolving the 990 ADV into a larger bike closer to & to compete w/ current 1200 ADV bikes. then releases a new smaller more off-road focused 750/800 v-twin bike that has close to the current 990 motor capability but is even better off-road.
the current 990 is always compared to the larger ADV bikes, so why not upscale and compete yet still offer better dirt performance and then release something to go head to head with the new 800 class.
seems 800cc & 1200cc bikes are the 2 classes to compete in anymore.
