When has cost and what folks will pay been on an equal footing with sales? Just look at iPhone, iPad, etc., etc.

It is a bit like the 1300 and 1500 models cars, exact same specification, just a different engine capacity, but higher price point for the larger engine. Paying more for 'bigger holes' inside the engine. OK, that is a simplification, but additional costs are often a fraction of the selling price potential.

I did say it would be a little more complex, but not massively more. The same materials will be used in both racks, just machined to different dimension. Maybe some extra time spent in the design of it, but will just be produced in the same way as normal rack.. just set-up in a jig in cnc and machined.
