None of us get this. The big 4 all make a EXC similar bike(ie wr450). How many ktm owners would have gone that way if those bikes were street able? Its a market that is proven and there. Why would they only sell these bikes to a very limited number when making them street would abviousily sell more.
Then there are bikes like the yamaha 660xt selling world wide but here??????
KLR 650 I was told was kawi's big seller. So a dualsport is a huge market then????
They build a DRZ 400 to the 1990's level.
Its not like they need to design new bikes, they already have em, just work them alittle.
Every year a new ninja, a new motorcross and new cruizer gets built, never a street dirt bike/ dual sport.
No, I disagree that its all about sales. Its old guys that dont dualsport nor understand it therefore see no need.
