If they can keep this in the MT07 - MT09 price range, I think it's a winner and completely in a class of it's own. If it starts approaching 790 price range, GTFO.

What is that price range ?

I think 130-150 ish? Sure the Honda's sell for that now but of course that's heavily discounted and won't be the case forever.

Well the KTM 790 Adventure will only be on our shores by 2020 I reckon. Maybe end 2019 if we are lucky so will be  difficult to compare the price outright but imho the T700 is going to be more expensive imo.
Take 5% increase in price every year to bikes now minimum. The Honda Africa Twin ABS non DCT is now R186 500. I reckon that bike is R199 999 next year. It came in at R153/156k iirc. in 2016.  The Africa Twin DCT version is now a whopping R208 500 .

How much was the 660Z new in 2016?

I doubt that this Yamaha will be cheaper than R165k  R185k when it releases...

Think the last 660Z we got was 2014 and then they were R108k or some sort.

Hierdie gaan n lekker boney wees  :ricky: I'm just not sure if it's going to look exactly  like that when it ends up on the showroom floor. For instance wont come with a Akro that is for sure.

See the MT-07 comes in at around 180kg. If this comes close it will be a fine machine (and coming off a Pig with a dry weight of 253kg) its a feather weight  :lol8:

The T7 will inevitably be closer to touring machines than to enduro bikes too, try not to be too disappointed. :thumleft:

The problem is that people want a Dakar replica bike that weighs 140 kg with the performance of a 1 liter bike and
the comfort of a tourer.  You will never find all those things in one bike.
.......but they will do 30 pages, to convince you that it is possible and that Yamaha is missing a wonderful
oppurtunity to capture the market  :snorting:
