I would like to thank Yamaha from the bottom of my heart for giving us such an exciting new legendary model to talk about. It has caused such lively motorcycle debate sorely needed on Wilddogs. Had it been another soft roader like we are so used to seeing nowadays I doubt anyone would have cared. Viva T7 viva !

I really hope it does pose a threat to the 790.   I'm still keen on a test ride, and if it is a great bike then that's better for everyone.

I just wish Yamaha SA would stop faffing!!!  Seriously.

If you are in two minds about the power of the 790 coming from a 1290, the T7 is going certainly not going to get your loins fired up.

I was checking out specs yesterday. One thing that really impressed me (on spec sheets anyway) is how close Yamaha kept this bikes' weight to the MT07 where the 790 is quite a bit heavier than the Duke.

The 1290 is stupid though, if I'm being honest.  The 790 has plenty power and I've seen vids drag racing the 1290 and 790 on tar, and the big bike only comes past at 140 and up (Granted, its really hitting it's stride at 140 and up :biggrin:)

What appeals to me on the T7 is that it seems to be very easy to ride....something I didn't find on the 790.  I felt like I had to ride like my pants were on fire to get the 790 into it's happy working range.  (I'm slow, even with 160hp :-[ )

Wat gaan julle so aan asof daar ooit kompetisie is vir die KTM?

Hipotetiese gesprekke is presies dit, hipoteties.

Kompetisie soos in wat? Wie het gewen? Wie kom eerste daar?

Moenie dat n slogan jou bluf nie.

Kyk hierdie is net mooi in my kraal
op skool kleure sport kon ek altyd die 3km wen.

nie omdat ek goed was nie, maar omdat ek al een was wat dit gedoen het.

Yeh at that price, if i'm buying anything it's probably a 790 that I can "grow into" :biggrin:    Would still like to take it for a spin.
