    In some countries the 790 only starts to come out this year. I thought India for example. Already replacing the 790 next year would be a sad move for all the reasons in above 2 posts plus it would probably piss off quite a bunch of 2020 first owners expecting to ride the latest and greatest KTM for a few years without feeling the 'need' to upgrade...

    the countries that need to be Euro 5
    will definately get
    a
    the euro 5 890
    or
    b
    the made to meet euro 5 spec 790

    countries like India that are just receiving the 790
    don't need to be Euro spec
    so they could keep the 790 a few years longer.
    also they could be produced more localy

    On the contrary, it appears that India will need (and will get) a BS6 compliant 790ADV in Q4 2020. As near as I can tell, the BS6 standard is based the Euro 6 standard, so it should also meet the Euro 5 standard. All of which means that the 2020 790 ADV will still be eligible for sale worldwide after 2020.
