Ridden like a rental through the bush by beginners and pro’s alike, impressive indeed. And Oz got some proper off roading too not only well graded dirt highways.
Would be interesting to know how long do they keep their bikes?Suppose they might have had 660 Teneres before the 700's?

The T7's nickname in SA should be "Stripper". You can look, but can't touch or ride it........ :peepwall:

Then that will change into a "KadwaaahKadwaaahKadwaaah!" relationship if you'll sign on the dotted line.
If so enjoy!  :P

"RideADV.com.au has just reached a world first milestone on our Tenere 700's. 125,000km's (accumulated) across the RideADV fleet of Tenere 700's since late November 2019 without a single issue with the bikes. WOW. What a milestone. Tour and workshop owner Greg Yager takes you through bike set up and aftermarket parts and accessories that have worked for our bikes and some that have not over the past 125,000km's of tough Aussie bush riding"



I like how they play the kind of music that would fit with a Red Bull Romaniacs video, while poodling along on a gravel road :imaposer:

Have you watched the Pol Tarres/ T7 videos?  The furthest any D'S bike has ever been taken. Pol do not need KTM Red Bull music.

For sure!! That is very impressive indeed and actual good marketing for the bike. I reckon this is a brilliant bike - would love to have one

Friday the 13th nogal........ >:D >:D More apt date would've been 1st of April with Yamaha SA taking everyone for fools......

With the imminent arrival of the demo units, I for one am looking forward to going for a proper ride on it. We've had some fun with the banter on this thread, but now it's time to see if it's as good as they claim.....

Local dealership owner lives in our estate and is also a patient of mine. He has assured me the demo will be available for a proper offroad test ride. :thumleft:
