Duke 790s to be assembled in Philippines

https://www.rideapart.com/articles/4...s-philippines/

Also the article mentions that the 390 adventure is going to be a single, but I thought KTM had a new 390 twin for the adventure model... ?

2019 KTM Duke 790
2015 Ducati Monster 821
2002 Honda XR400R

I believe the new small twins are going to be 490s.

I believe he meant 790's, not 790s - make sense?

Not really. 790's is possessive. 790s is plural. He was correct but it could be construed as a specific model except that most model naming would have a capital "s", as in 790S.

I asked if it made sense, not if it was grammatically accurate.

Huh?! Does 790's make sense? No is the answer. 790s is what he said and what he meant. You started the grammatical issue with your "correction" as to what he meant.

It says not all 790, just some of the production slated for nearby countries.

For someone who lives in the birthplace of Bourbon and so close to the Dragon and other amazing roads - you sure are a tad high strung huh?

Let me rephrase it then, I assumed if I articulated my answer how I did, the point would be made - grammar be damned. You are correct of course and it wasn't perfect english. I (falsely) assumed that we all kind of gave each other a pass on such trivial things and were more concerned about the actual message. You strike me as the kind of person who would reject a winning lottery ticket if a corner was bent, sad...

This makes no sense at all to me. If your spelling and grammar is so bad that you can't communicate, you really ought to look at yourself rather than blaming others for your problem.
