I just hope Yamaha resists increasing capacity and throwing electronics at this bike with the next update  :deal:

Goodbye T7

The next episode shows the T7 being ridden out of there. :ricky: Like the Jeremy Clarkson Hilux.

Or maybe not.

shows how tough they are. you need a 20 ton Tracked crane to destroy it and it still took a few shots. Seems the Bashplate is real good quality though.

The 790 with it's gazillion hp will be a better option for the average beer swilling pap vreeting fat bastid South African., for us athletic lightweight people who know when the rear wheel is spinning  we will be fine with the T7 but and a big BUT,, if it's true that the price is so close to the 790 over here it's a no brainer,,,, just buy a 2nd hand 1090 or1190.

At this rate we'll have the Aprillia Tuareg before the mythical, elusive T7   
And it looks just as good and has more toys  :biggrin:

It looks as good because it's a copy and paste (almost) of the T7  :deal:

THis was also my first thoughts when I saw expected release in 2021.
And with the T7 priced so unrealistically high, this Aprilia, offering more, could propably be cheaper.



I dont see it being a copy though, except for engine size and round wheels

Same swing arm, silencer, front fender, forks triple clamp etc than the T7. Just a photoshop using the T7 as a base.

Another feather in the Yami cap. Although I do wonder how reviewers would rate the T7 if it was the same price as the 790

Dwerg, if they were both the same price, the T7 would lose out quite a lot.

I say this based on, and it does not matter whether someone like myself hates electronic aids on a bike, it is still value added.

Yamaha could maybe have made the T7 available as a "X" model, also laden with e-aid like the 790, as that appeals to a different market.

Fanboy stuff aside, personally I would take the T7 if it was the same price as the 790. I say this with long and affordable ownership in mind.

Excellent deals out there now,  on really great adv bikes.
Starry eyed Yamboys will be willing to pay a premium price, while others will go out and grab a lekker deal.
Price here of the T7 dont  matter anymore, does it.
