Looks like a XT660z to me.

They all look the same to me  O0

Aren’t they all the same?

The XT660Z is a single, and the T7 a twin. :peepwall:

well, that would be good news indeed, quite a lot of pent-up demand, and Yamaha SA has (allegedly) been hurting with the lack of a 660/700 the past couple of years, whilst Honda/BMW/KTM have all had multiple launches...
I heard May 2020 was a BUILD date, with a 12-week build and shipping cycle, so have heard Sept, will check again latest update now, and revert...

I believe we were on the cards for a May delivery but the shipment was diverted to New Zealand. We wait until September now.

I wonder why the engineers did not assess the bikes on the World Raid for issues such as this?
To do that they would have had to take it out of the crate :pot:

Wonder why NZ and Australia dont have the same shipments ? Would make sense and the bikes are already in Australia

It probably went to Aus, for distribution to NZ.

We used to get a lot of bikes in SA, with a plate reading; "Australian vehicle certification board".

The three things you need to fix anything in the universe: duct tape, WD-40 and a hammer.  If it moves and it shouldn't, use the duct tape.  If it doesn't move and it should, use the WD-40.  Otherwise use the hammer.

..chatted to Yamaha again, still on for late August/September roll-out accross SA, though they should have 2 bikes in SA before that for homologation (firstly) and then possibly pre-exposure events, (and limited test rides) before the bike arrives for sale in SA.

Yes and no....I think they will be very competitively priced and sales will take off, they will be very reliable...this we know already! The 790 was marketed and launched with much anticipation and well received but not without its fairshare of(anticipated) issues .I will be the 1st to say its an awesome well balanced machine with plenty of power and loving mine for now but have unfortunately also had a few issues. I will definitely be on a T7  within a year or so

It is the supply issue after an already protracted wait that is problamatic. If it is true that they have supplied NZ with our initial allocation even worse. But then we are a banana republic selling very few bikes in the larger scheme of things.

I think what Big Dom means is not the QUALITY of the bike, but the DELIVERY/LAUNCH of it; I saw it at EICMA 2015, and the T700 APPEARED 95% finished, though looks can be deceiving, and to be fair, much work MAY have still needed to be done...


In the meantime...


Honda launched bikes (CRF 1000 AT  & CRF 1000L Adventure Sport and THEN later model CRF 1100L range (4 bike variants - A2 +A4 + D2 + D4...)


BMW got busy with the new 1250, the 310GS, the new 750 GS and the new 850 GS...


and KTM, who had, at various stages, launched the 1050+1090+1190 then 1290, launched the 790...


to add insult to injury, i think the T700 that visited our store had BULB indicators; really, in this Year of our Lord 2020...?!  ;D  Hopefully I was mistaken... :o

It’s now around 9300 here so 156k is a good price there.

Seems some countries have issues with led indicators. In SA the 250 Rally has led’s flickers but in the US they are sold with normal bulb ones  :-\

What's wrong with a "bulb" indicator??

It's not a KTM stator, where a "bulb" will fry it.
