I'm convinced I'm better off sinking R50K of upgrades into my 1994 XRV750 and end up with a more capable bike.

The T7 is obviously designed for the world market and to make this an accessible option for average Joe and Joanne the suspension travel was capped at normal ADV bike standards to around 200mm. They will sell more bikes t

That is US only. Europe expected june 2019 (why so late dont know), Oz/NZ (and i guess SA) late 2019.

The only thing that can make this work imo is very very friendly price.

Well i didnt like current Tenere at all even though i mistakenly owned it for few years, but one (probably only) thing it had going for it was great crashability - no need for crashbars and such. The new one by the look of things will require at least 10kg of those.

OK, I will let go my breath and carry on with life. Bar pose value, there's nothing this bike can do that my KLR cannot also do, and even maybe better.

Yes,i thought i could turn it into motorcycle by throwing lots of money on it. I know,i know -what was i thinking, she wasnt even hot. 🤪

Edit: and just for my defence, she seemed pretty hot compared to BBW 1150 i was replacing.

I'm bitterly disappointed, I was expecting a lot more from this bike  :-\ On the one hand I'm relieved though because I won't be having sleepless nights trying to find ways to afford it. For now my 690 will stay put.

The fact that the 790 prototype is on display at eicma leads me to believe they won't be launching it now either.

True but did you pay R180K for the bike? If I'm going to splash out that kinda cash then it needs to be flash  ;D
For close to the same price I could buy a Husky 701 in rally spec that looks better, is lighter and has a longer fuel range.

They announced the US models will be built in Japan, the rest France, maybe that is the reason for the difference in release dates.
