From what I can see KTM is just developing products the market wants and will pay for. The "Adventure" segment is really one of the few that is seeing sales increases, the manufacturers see that and are delivering new or updated products in spades, witness BMW, Yamaha, Suzuki, Triumph, Ducati etc. With regard to KTM its important to realize the "Adventure" segments has a number of sub-segments that range from hard core dirt to pavement cruisers and KTM offerings are designed to sell as many as possible within the segment while leveraging their brand name. I like the progression of the products and yes there are some bikes that will ride Death Valley and others that will cruise Highway 1, its all good.
