If you think about it, their product line is a bit thin compared to other companies...at least in the street. I think they are growing, and making good decisions about new development.

Now...they could do something about the heat management and tank venting for the 990.

When I ordered my 990 ADV R 3 weeks ago my dealer told me that production already stopped so mine is one of the last few bikes built.I dont have a reason not to believe him.Even if we all would love to see the bike still in production the fact is that KTM with their financial situation simply can't afford it.Unless they would sell more shares to Bajaj.Sad but true.
Wouldnt worry about the parts.The bike was in production and sold on all continents for 10 years.
