Yamaha T7 Concept
« on: November 08, 2016, 10:50:52 am »
http://www.asphaltandrubber.com/bikes/yamaha-t7-concept/

Part of Yamaha’s 2016 EICMA show program includes a nod to the future, teasing us today with the Yamaha T7 concept. Picking up the torch where the Yamaha XT600Z Ténéré left off, the Yamaha T7 concept uses the same 270° parallel-twin engine found in the Yamaha MT-07/FZ-07 street bike.
Yamaha has wrapped that stout twin-cylidner engine in a brand new chassis that is suited for dual-spot riding, and hopes to focus its efforts on offering a middleweight adventure-tourer that is high on off-road brapping, and low on electronic wizardry.
This should appease those who complain about ADV bikes being too road focused and sophisticated for true adventure riding, and Yamaha hopes to use the T7 concept to develop a bike that meets this ethos, and is suitable for production, but also capable of proper rally raid riding.
As such, the Yamaha T7 is a fully functional prototype, and it is being developed with help from the Official Rally Team in France, Yamaha R&D in Italy, and GK Design in The Netherlands.
Featuring an aluminum fuel tank, four-project LED headlight, KYB fork suspension, carbon fiber fairing and skid plate, and a custom Akrapovič exhaust, the Yamaha T7 concept should morph into a production model in 2018.

It surely promises to be a great machine with that engine. Those MT-07/FZ-07 parallel twin motors are receiving great reviews :thumleft:

Volgens MCN maak die T7 ongeveer 74 hp (ek dink 2017 se 701 gaan omtrent dieselfde uitsit)
en weeg die T7 180kg,ek hoop dit is vol met liquids?
Die 701 kom in teen 156kg vol,
As jy daaroor dink is die performance van die 2017 husky 701 eintlik amazing.
Die Yamaha daarenteen sal waarskynlik geen vraagtekens he rondom afwerking en betroubaarheid nie.

Die 701 is n uitstaande fiets, met daardie tipe kraglewering, maar dit is n heel ander klas van fiets as wat die "T7" is. Ek sal verras wees as die "T7" op 180 kan draai vol vloeistof.

I reckon if they come in under 200kg wet they would have done a great job. As nice as  the 690/701 are,this Twin is what I have been waiting for. For me a much better motor for what we do with DS bikes.

Kyk na jou MT07 en MT07 Tracer om n idee te kry van die gewig. Hy sal definitief nie onder 200kg inkom nie en dan sit ons nog die loopraam op ( chrashbars  :o ) en centre stand en pannier rakke en teen die tyd wat jy klaar is, is die fiets nie ligter as die XT660Z wat net so vir inligting 20kg swaarder is as die XT660R wat in my mening n moerse goeie thumper is - beter as die gewilder boet.

Dit gaan virseker n bitter lekker fiets wees, en gegewe op die regte prys die GS800 seermaak sowel as die XCX wat reeds nie meer so goed doen nie. BMW GS800 domineer die middel segment nou al vir 8 jaar. Yamaha het egter reeds tekenne gegee dat die fiets ontwikkel word in samewerking met hul Italiaanse vernote so dit alleen se vir my dat net soos die XTZ660Z baie duur was (veel duurder as die Sertao) gaan die fiets ook n stewige prys meer pronk. As jy gaan kyk na vergelykende toets verslae tussen die MT07 Tracer, lang in de tand Versys 650 en 650  DL Vstrom was die MT07 gekritiseer oor die suspention, die basiese 'budget' gevoel maar het almal saamgestem dat die engine die sterk punt is. Prys in die sektor is reeds hoog, en die T7 gaan virseker glo ek goeie suspention he and baie meer. Ek haak egter nou vas soos n ou langspeel plaat oor prys  :patch: maar dis seker omdat ek alreeds wens ek sal een kon bekostig! Een van daai bikes wat mens weet goed gaan wees voordat hy nog gebore is.

701 Huskey is totaal in n klas van sy eie, soos KTM (wat dit is) se slagspeuk: 'resdy to race'
Hulle is definitief nie op dieselfde kopersmark gerig nie.
