Interesting that on the launch of the prototype they are talking that this is the 'big brother' of the WR450 - that it is dirt biased in a big way. I wonder how true that will be once the production bike is launched. Besides the up and coming KTM 790 Adv, what other rivals would there be in the market? I can't really think of any. the 850GS is not as dirt focused. Perhaps this is the start of a new market segment, who knows.

That is from Butch. He's been saying it for 6 years now. We'll wait. I've wanted this bike since I first rode my 660Z. It should have been on the market 3 years ago already.

Julle meskien ja, maar ons het darem nog die Ooskaap waar die teerpaaie 'n uitdaging is.

The 660 Tenere rumour mill was running for 2 years.........................and then it was launched.

Then South Africa waited another 12 months before it arrived.

This bike will not be here before end of 2019.  Mid 2019 at the earliest.
Knowing Yamaha, I'm willing to take bets on this. :lol8:

Why does the blue  T7 standing on the beach look so different to the white T7 in the pictures? 

The blue one has tanks that extend very low like a rally bike, even below the fairings and the rear of the seat to top of tank height is more level.
The white one's tank looks a little high in the front and the seat lower at the back.

I prefer the design of the blue one. Lower CG and most likely more fuel capacity.

I feel the final, production bike, will almost certainly be launched at EICMA (Milan) in November 2018...



I-F SA can get in on the 1st 'batch' of bikes, then likely April/May 2019.


(you must remember, that SA sources from a European Yamaha factory, not Yamaha Japan, and if Europe say needs 7,000 bikes opening order, and the factory produces say 5,000 units in the 1st 'run', then SA could be delayed to say a 2nd 'run'...I guess 3+ months later?


(this happened with the 660 Tenere, just as Operator says, whereby SA got product 12 months later).

The blue one on the beach is the bike being ridden in Oz currently so would imagine very similar to production model?
Yamaha still testing on various continents before release .......Butch is a year premature methinks??

Same as 790 Adventure. Still a long way away. I would have thought an Adventure would have been released first but they chose to go with the Duke initially. Shows you what sells the most hey.
