Default 500s, 800s on the way

Story goes that KTM is developing a 500cc and an 800cc parallel twin mill. New models expected in 3 years.

:O

Wonder where they will go? A new series of motorcycles? 500 and 800 aren't common with the rest of the engines they offer

3 years, got a long way to go. Being bigger CC bikes I can see these starting off being sold in established motorcycle markets and slowly making their way to smaller ones

3 years is quite a while. I would suspect that these ill go in a brand new model instead of being just extra engines available for already existing models. What could these new bikes possibly be?

Mid class Sports bike and Naked, a mid sized RC/RC8 and a Naked to compete with MV's, Yamaha, Ducati etc etc etc.....at least thats seems the logical place for them.
