Was at the local Yamaha dealer today. They are just as frustrated...

Apparently 10 bikes arriving in October which will all be demos. Donít know whether to believe it because he also said the suspension should be better than 790R

He is a Yamaha not a KTM salesman what did you expect.

He meant better quality, which should be obvious. ::)

No issues on T7 suspension in South Africa on record.

I've taken one of the homologation units for a quick spin and it is AWESOME.  :ricky:
The motor is super smooth and the bike rides like a plastic.

Must be a really heartwarming feeling to South Africans, knowing that even if they can't have one, all those riders elsewhere are enjoying the bike so much.  :3some:

Think the term is, er vicarious pleasure?

I can tell that just be looking at it, going to be a great bike ! How did you manage the ride ? Maybe I should have taken a chance, thought it was for the press only.

And still no price.....not even an indication against the current exchange rate.
