Post by: XRRX on March 12, 2020, 05:56:12 pm
Now this looks like a proper Adv bike, and they say it's coming our way.... :thumleft:
Basically a normal 701 with all the new tech and a "moerse" fuel tank!!

R149k but there's some discount in it so they usually include some extras.

Is it true only 171 LR's were ever made ? Discontinued after 1 year.

The standard list price for the 701 with the LR tanks is R 185,699.

Lots of money for a single cylinder...................but then you must also take into account that this
is the ultimate thumper.
This is the very last of the big bore Thumpers, which will soon be discontinued do to Euro emission standard nonsense.

Maybe I have this wrong but it looks like R220k

Maybe there are other differences such as suspension for the heavier load?

If Yamaha cuts the T7 price now by say R10 000-00 because of the stronger Rand the T7 will be a right old bargain  :pot:

Wonder if they didn't sell well and why + its basically the perfect long range enduro bike with the LR setup.

Too easy to add range to the cheaper std model and not many people in Europe need +200km range and if they do, they can still buy the expensive kit
