Something's missing here!!!

Pentax's japanese site is showing this picture! Don't you think there is something missing on it?

Yup, I also wondered why no K-mount DSLR was shown... There's more than enough room for that.

Probably just showing of the smallest and the biggest product.

They cannot ditch K-mount, it is majority of their production. But I'm too offended by this picture.

Bingo. A K-5 would "kill" the impact; add the K-r and you'd have just your average "look how few ILC cameras we're making" picture.
I agree that leaving the K-5 (K-mount) out when talking about the new company is not a good idea. I like the picture, IMO it works - but maybe not in this context.
It's not such a big issue, though.

Well, my opinion is that they are showing the players for the new company. That means both the K-5 and K-R are out of this game. New players should arise though! Just a thought out guess.

There is also no dedicated site for the K5 but the K7 is still there.

Is the future to go back??

Maybe it's a hint that they are going to combine medium format with mirrorless....
