Probably has to do with manufacturing quantities. The STR will probably be about 500 (maybe less) total that could be made in Germany (or Somewhere) alongside other STR's for other countries and shipped over. The ST they probably want to make (hopefully more than) a couple thousand and not have to ship them far.
