Title: Yamaha Tenere 700 now R239 000?
Post by: Eddy81 on August 13, 2021, 11:55:43 am
So a bit ago I posted about the new Aprilia Tuareg,  price in SA would be interesting.  I just saw a on autotrader a Yamaha tenere 700 being advertised by Linex Yamaha for R239 000.00. I know this bike has some extras but my word,  surely this price is just crazy for what the T7 isÖ.

Either Linex Yamaha has gone a bit loony with prices or Bidvest has decided to up the price,  no ways this bike should be 100k more than the MT07

Extras + Legend Tax

Legend tax??? on a new model?.. legend tax is reserved for bikes that have achieved legend status.. 20 years plus of proven performance and reliability. I dont see how that applies to a T7

The price of new bikes in general is wacky, but I agree.  :-\

While I agree with you, my 990 disagrees in part :lol8:

That's why a 990 does'nt have legend tax either .  :peepwall: :pot:

Although it should just because of how it looks IMO

The 990 was One of the only adv bikes I have ever owned and ridden that actually felt solid and didnít doubt like it was falling apart the minute you hit the dirt.  My 790 adv r sounded just like my f800gs

Although it should just because of how it looks IMO

We will talk again in 20 years time  :deal: Remember the T7 will be the last proper adv bike before they all went electronic crazy. Iím sure in 20 years time you will still see as much T7ís as you do 34Lís now

I doubt if there's any legend tax involved.

Except the Black Widow exhaust, the farkles appear to be Yamaha items, and are roughly 50% more expensive than aftermarket brands.

The Yamaha bash plate alone is around R 6500-00.

The farkles should add up to warrant the asking price.

R6500 vir daai Oosblok looking plaat vir n bashplate!
Yamaha sien die blou onderbroek manne van n afstand af aankom en sovÍr hulle loop, strooi hulle die geld.

Legend tax?
Die uitbuiting is legendaries

Strooi die geld, die ekonomie het dit nodig!
 :3some:
Ou Yamaha kan 10k loop vra vir daai bashplate en ouens hier sal steeds soos skape dit betaal.
 
Ek verstaan nou wel waarom die bike nie met SSS suspensie kom nie, want f0k weet, dit sal 100k kos teen hierdie trant

Jy't ook nie kleingeld na die 501 gegooi nie.

Ek sien geld pla meeste van die SA T7 eienaars nie veel nie.

Dalk eerder dit voor SARS dit vat!

Van die manne gooi sommer vol Ohlins voor en agter!

T7 eienaars besef die waarde van Yamaha kwaliteit, en bevraagteken dus nie die prys nie.

Ook nie bekommerd dat T7 2.0 op pad is, en volgende jaar T7.5 nie!

Daar was glo al ń Hp2 en 1090 daar gewees, verneem ek.

Geen idee of hulle egter die eindpunt gehaal het nie.

As jy nou legendaries will praat dan gee jy vir Toni Bou en Laia Sanz altwee sommer URAL Sidecars en hulle wen sommer ook Romaniacs as eerste man en eerste vrou overall!!  ;)

One only has to Google CP2 reliability to know that in 20 years they'd be just run-in.
