While I personally would prefer a lightweight 650 single adventure bike (~350 lbs) with a top notch suspension from KTM the greater market doesn't really buy those.
I'd be happy if they offered a 700-800 twin adventure model that is 75-100lbs lighter then the 990 to pair with their 1200 twin offering.

Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost."
