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...

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:

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.

Very interesting but maybe it's just me: Journalists test the bikes but they are so diplomatic, and obviously because they want to be invited again to test yet another bike.
I don't blame them, it's called job security.

Luckily we can have a look, and then go ride and decide what makes sense to buy with your own money.

I prefer the looks, the 'no electronics' and cheaper price of the T7 and have already made up my mind that this is the bike I'll go with :thumleft:
Agree T7 for me too


No shit.....
