Lame? I think not.
I was at the local Dealership yesterday and was told that KTM is bringing 700 units to N America and this will be the last year of the 950/990 platform. KTM isn't offering the 990 in Europe this year. So, get 'em while you can! The new 1190 looks more street oriented-like a Multistrada I think.
