I wonder how many potential T7 owners have decided (and will decide) to go test ride a 790 rather, and never look back again.
I find it hard to understand why Yamaha are walking around with their pants halfway down, exposing a hairy crack.
A sad year for SA adv riders, a 24 hp CRF450l and no T7...

I am yet to meet someone who has taken a 790R for a test and did not end up buying it..........

It was said the other day that a good rider will show up lots of capable bikes on a GS1200 along the Kruger fence road.

Noneking said it.

Same with this T7, a good rider will show up a lot of more capable bikes anywhere, of course the test comes when riders of equal talent mount the different steeds.

I have watched a lot of T7 videos, and a lot of T7 vs790, 990, AT1000, etc videos, and when it comes to the T7 vs 790R, it is visibly clear that the T7 does not have the suspension to match,

or the engine punch.

What is clear is that Yamaha has done an exemplary job with a minimum package, all reports rave about the preciseness of steering, and how tractive the engine is.

Then finally, and this is undisputed, there comes with the T7 Yamahas reliability and longevity. This alone, is for many a big drawcard.


......... and I stand by that "statement", even though that whole thread was tongue in cheek  :peepwall:

Truth is, very few T7, 790 etc riders will ultimately ride these bikes to the limits of what they are actually capable of. If you ride gravel highway and a bit of jeep track, most bikes will do just fine and arguing about how capable the T7 is vs. the 790 makes almost no sense.  The shortcomings of each bike will show up very quickly once you take it beyond what it was designed for. I really like the look of the T7, it's a class leader in the esthetics department and it will have Yamaha's legendary reliability. The 790R is without a doubt a MUCH better bike for my application. It has a suspension that is miles ahead of any other bike in it's class and electronics & performance to match.

As mentioned earlier, I will most certainly test the T7 as soon as possible as I do think it will be a great bike.

You missed the WR450 that's been around and able to do the CRF450's job for almost 20 years :eek7:, only with much more performance and better reliability.

Jy raak vaak Altus. :pot:
