I think that as the KTM 950/990 is defunct now, their target is more aimed at the KTM 1050. But then, it's taken Honda that long to bring out this bike, the 990's were still in production when they started the development.

I believe that all of the more expensive KTM On-Road & Off-Road models are produced in Austria... from what I understand, the smaller displacement Duke's and the RC390 are the only road going KTM's being made in India.

The CBR300R is a single cylinder engine, not a twin cylinder.

Fixed that for you...

Honda has a much larger dealer network than KTM, at least in the US. That's probably true for most other countries as well.

And KTM's are somewhat known as higher maintenance bikes, whereas Honda has always enjoyed a solid reputation as being among the most reliable motorcycles on the planet.

There may be a few who choose to buy a KTM because of a perceived "rarity", but at the end of the day I doubt that's a significant factor for those who do buy KTM motorcycles.
