Looking at the parts fiche, it appears that a majority of the parts are sourced from China. My hunch is CFMoto will be manufacturing these for KTM.

The line up for 2023 appears to be
2023 790 Duke
2023 890 Duke GP (but only on the international site, I don't see it on the US site)
2023 890 Duke R

I can see the 790 being a nice slot in, not to mention production in China being likely cheaper, and is distinguished enough to sell vs the trio i.e. 890 Duke, 890 Duke GP, 890 Duke R.

I suspect the take rate for the 890 is highest for the R spec. The GP is just an up trimmed version of the standard 890 so I can see the logic of dumping the base 890. Maybe KTM figures that base 890 buyers will jump on the "new" 790. I just don't see a significant difference between the 890 and the 790 to keep both around.
