Well if replies were ltd to those who can afford and are really committed to actually buying one, it might have been a one pager.

But this is the magic of the forum, even folks who haven't had an adventure bike since the rinderpest, can share with us the unbridled joy of their opinions. 😁

That does sound mean.

Pity South African ears are destined to listen to KTM and BMW twins. :eek7:

Some things are worth waiting for.... the T7 is such a thing.

I am being lured by it...must resist but its tempting.

Just saw this at the bike show here in NL. It does actually look very nice.

I'm looking at getting a new bike and comparing the 790 to this. I have to say, the styling on this definitely looks better.

I felt the same. Until I sat on it directly after riding my 990 with tall seat.

I'm not a fan of sitting that deep into the bike. + the couple other things I bitched about in this thread
