Waiting patiently for feedback on the T7 after the Ralley Raid, or maybe everyone are  at the Yamaha dealerships placing orders

Wil ek ook weet  :peepwall:
Sal een gaan ry sodra hulle by Linex in PTA n demo het.
Ek dink steeds die prys gaan n GROOT rol speel.
Maak nie saak of jy die geld het of nie..... R200k is baie geld vir n stock standard 700cc  :o
Current: KTM 790 Adv R,  KTM 500 XCW-F
Previous: KTM 950 Super Enduro R, KTM 990 Adv x2, BMW G650 X-Challenge x4,  Yamaha XT 660R,  Honda XR650L, BMW R1200GS

Interesting thread - really... :P

But there is so much bull being spoken here that there is absolutely no place for objective facts - and that apply to both sides - Orange and Blue... :peepwall:

I would like to see a bike - any brand - half as good as the Orange and/or the Blue "Cupcakes" ...

AGREED.
WE LET THE THREAD RUN FROM IT'S INCEPTION IN NOVEMBER 2016.
SEEING AS WE NOW ACTUALLY HAVE BIKES INCOMING, LET'S TAKE THIS THREAD BACK TO STAYING ON POINT, ELSE IT'S GOING IN THE DUSTBIN CALLED "JOU MA"
May the bridges I burn light the way...

Agree and start by changing the heading to Yamaha T7 and drop the "concept"

The T7's price is still a concept  :ricky:

Ek sien uit na die bike om te kom, regtig.

Wonder net oor daai prys. Sien jy kan nou 'n AT koop vir dieselfde prys...
Not bad pricing from Honda I guess, I like the standard plain AT best anyway. Wonder if they did the price adjustment to counter possible T7 sales ? Funny that BMW and Triumph also lowered pricing at the same time or maybe they just want to move old stock.

Looking at what happened with thenT7 overseas, sales wise, local competitors are definitely trying to offload bikes to clients now at lowered prices.

Because they know, once the T7 is available, there'll be no contest. :pot:

Whilst waiting, waiting so patiently all these years the bike has been ageing and becoming outdated. To the point where it would normally by this time have outlived it's production life and been superceded and replaced by a new model.

Which makes Yamaha like Harley Davidson, selling yesterdays bikes at tomorrow's prices.  :pot:

2021 a milestone. 60 years a biker.

I suspect the price drop has got more to do with the new CRF1100 that's available.

Werent they released at the same time as the T7?

[/quote]Seems if we wait long enough Honda will be giving away CRF1000L's and 250 Rally's for free  :ricky:
I can understand why a T7 would cost premium though, I mean just that name "Tenere", personification of adventure. Others are just Starbucks wannabees

I would like a T5, style it like a T7 (most beautiful shape in motorcycling) but with a 500cc single with long service intervals and about 40 / 45 HP. Give it a 20L tank and 145kg dry weight. It will be another winner.

Adrian Bac was there on one. I sat on it but did not ride- a few guys just took a short spin. Apparently its good and capaple. Visually i does nothing for me, but i must admit i only have eyes for KTM. Maybe someone else?.
If i had to explain you would not understand anyway......

I could do a ride report - but I will be accused of being biased! Been on here waiting for impressions from those that took the bike for a demo.................
