Did not like the 701... compared directly with 690, it was rock hard, shakes, no rev counter (like the 690), vibrates like hell, few okes complained about the gearbox. The 690 I enjouyed much more yesterday. But I must say, the 701 was a bit better when I took it the second round :) So not too bad.

Literally everyone complained about that 701 test bike. The suspension was set rock hard :( Not a good reflection on what the bike is really capable of I believe.

Coming off the MX scene(Not a racer though), suspension can be sorted easily I'm sure, don't diss my dream bike ok! :imaposer:

What do you guys think that 701 would cost with that rally fairing?  :drif:

I saw the carbon instrument cluster etc. But thought it's more of a show bike then anything.

Any idea what that includes? Just for interest sake.......

Jip...can't believe it was really it...there has to be something more to it. But then...the 690 off the floor is less expensive. So I cannot see why I would pay more for the 701, except that it looks very nice!  :)

I went on Saturday, R220 to get in, Ouch!!
Looked like a Bike rally to me, Some hot promo girls, loved the Superbike magazine stand, 701 rally edition

All in all a waste of money in my opinion, if you have been to one bike show you have been to them all, I could honestly rather go dealer hopping to see all those bikes.

Kyalami is looking good though

You such a negative ou ek se....
Born to lose, live to win!!
