Problem is the damn young people (buying sector ) today, you need to know right from the start which finger you nominate to induce vomiting, and which to use to test your prostate.
You never switch from this point on.
They need electronics to help them cope and/or decide.
Its a sad day for Japanese adv biking, when you need to invite a guy like Pol to come along and  "add more oil to your std shocks" , and then proceed to shoot a "stunt video" to introduce more excitement to your product........

What is the answer then?
Buy a accident damaged mt 07, Take the "free spirited" motor and loom/ECU, build your own frame with the necessary geometry and gussets, splash on some bouncy bits from mr WP and a longish range tank, with a decent subframe....
Eish, why can we not just buy it...

Well, Pol's video on the bike with the added oil to the standard shocks, suddenly make Chris Birch on the KTM's look pedestrian. Yes, when you need to invite a guy like Chris to come along to spice up your product. :imaposer: :imaposer:

Definetly, Yamaha owns pianos and KTM owns WP, Pol really showed up that pesky 790`s with his extra oil trick :thumleft:

Looks like Bidvest is paying some other people as well to promote  the T7 :peepwall: Have to admit still Yamaha f up with this bike as mentioned many a times and im sure it was not built to compete with with Austrian's but it should have been on the market  more than a year ago at least and Yamaha should have ensured it comes in competitively priced. What was the delay, who knows but thousands of sales was lost  because of the time taken for this stock engine, basic but strong frame and medium suspension to be released. Still my favourite manufacturer though

116 Pages and still going. I can't believe how much interest there is in this bike, especially when everyone is expecting it to be priced out of range.

I you delete all the posts of the orange fanboys (where they try their utmost to persuade the Yamaha die-hards to NOT buy this bike), then this thread won't even be 10 pages long.  :deal:

This thread has been going for 4 years with no SA owner pics yet. It should've been on page 300 by now.

PS, why is it that if you like Yamaha, you are a die hard but if you like KTM, you are a fanboy?

If you like this bike so much you are willing to wait until it hits the second hand market in SA you are definitely die hard?

KTM not only lost the Dakar but now the Corolla of the biking world as they would like to refer to it is showing up all previous KTM "Ready To Race" videos  :pot:
It's ok maybe next year the 901 or 890 will manage a comeback, I hear KTM is pouring all their R&D into airbox design and trying to convince KYB to sell them shocks branded as WP
