I guess we'll have to ask KTM Marketing Dept.?

I found that photo on ADV, I guess some guys are not impressed with the new 1050. Same weight as 1190, a lot less power, and 18" on the front I think. Not sure if they make a 1050R?

I don't get it? Why not stick with the 990 ?  Or go smaller to a 750 or something that is lighter? To me the 1190 is so close to as good as the 990 off road that something in between makes no sense at all.

I don't get it either. Not sure why they drop the 990 and started the 1050. It seems to me that they are different enough to justify keeping them both but the 1050 is just like the 1190, maybe a bit smaller.
