Indeed they seem to be no longer available as standard models but the FAQ section "do you still make" lists both the DP 165 and the DP 166 as "Available from the Custom Shop".

They are so Dimarzio doesn't list them, but I believe you can still order them as a "Custom shop" product. But there are still plenty of sets new and used online. Reverb/ebay, even some of the bigger retailers. If you decide you want a set you shouldn't have too hard a time grabbing a set or individual neck or bridge.
In case you need their specs

bridge
356 mv
16.32 ohms
T-6 M-9 B -8

neck
325 mv
10.39 ohms
T-6 M-7.5 B - 7.5


These were from notes I made when researching them, but I think they are accurate.
