Net om seker te maak niemand mis dit nie...


2SD het sopas die T7 in dieselfde klas as die GS850 gesit.

Die GS850 het geen klas. :biggrin:.......en nou probeer BMW die ding afsmeer aan mense wat nie basiese wiskunde kan doen nie. :deal:

Die enjin kapasiteitsgleuf vir fietse met 2 of meer silinders is rofweg in die omgewing 700-850cc, en die regte groot mense is in die gleuf 900 en groter cc.

Oberdan Bezzi to build a Rally T7 for racing

This machine will be pointed directly at off-road rally racing with increased suspension travel, a new swingarm, more robust brakes, more substantial skid plate, Akrapovič exhaust and up-specíd wheels. It carries two separate aluminum, large-capacity fuel tanks, the extra weight offset by swapping the T7ís stock bodywork and other key components with lightweight carbon or kevlar replacements.

Like the blue makes me thinks of Peterhansel's Super Tenere Dakar bike

Bold claims by Yoshimura about their new T7 pipe ! Don't think I have ever heard of a pipe giving 3.7% gain but then the CP2 motor is something special it seems.

The platform of the 689cc parallel-twin engine has been used in the MT-07 for years is quite possibly perfect for both the serious and aspiring off-road adventure rider. We wanted to give the new T7 more grunt so we enlisted the help of our all-new RS-12 ADV slip-on system. With our patent-pending PTF insert system makes installing a sound insert or spark arrestor a breeze! The RS-12 ADV added horsepower and torque across the entire power spectrum! Max HP recorded a 3.7% gain and max torque was marked at a 2.4% gain. The exhaust note that the RS-12 provides the new Yamaha is spot on!

What rally can you still ride big capacity bikes?

I thought they changed to 450cc across the board?

Not that I ever saw or heard you criticise the GS800/850 for this very same reason??  Seems the T7 is just so much more of a threat, hey? :deal:

I would not be surprized if someone competes with one in the Baja in the future.

But the 850 comes in below R165k and offers more than the T7.




Oberdan Bezzi should not be so picky, look at what the Pol guy could do with the T7, no mods no breakdowns. Why is he making these drastic changes to such a capable machine!?

Why dont KTM ride a rally with a stock 790? show me one stock rally bike competing today.. they dont exist , probably for good reason if they want to win.

Nice objective comparison, just a pity they haven't used the standard 850GS, as it would have been a more fair comparison... (The GS Adventure is substantially heavier riding on the same suspension.)

I assume the price of the local T7 will be revealed as soon as the special on the 1000cc AT and 850GS have ended? :biggrin:

When do we start talking about the possibility of a T3 - Concept??  :pot:

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.

Now that idea I like!   :thumleft: :thumleft: :thumleft:
