Nice review by Chopper pilot.
Overall a good bike.
Just dont a agree with that price defense statement though, "You either can afford it or not...."
Het jy dalk op `n stadium sondagskool gegee vir graad 1? :peepwall:

Ek het nounet die prys van 'n nuwe 2021 KTM 500 six days gesien, nou dink ek hierdie T7 ding is bargain  :patch:

You're most welcome.

I genuinely had fun riding the T7.

It's in a class of its own.

We should all utilize the opportunity to ride the T7, and spend some time on it.



Forget to mention. I laid it on its side on some pine needles , to get a feel on the picking up exercise.

Its not feather light, but I lifted it quite easily by only grabbing the handle bars, and lifting it upright.

Yes, it will become more difficult with numerous pick ups, but then again, I can't see one dropping the T7 that often.

The pricing is only disappointing because you guys, somehow, decided that a Yamaha must cost less than a KTM.

The Yamaha, through virtue of both bikes' breakdown records, have already shown that it is the higher quality machine, despite what all our in-house KTM bike guru's mumble. :deal:

Yamaha decided that and it is the case in every other market around the world. Weíre simply not getting one of the core selling points of the bike. But ok Yamaha oooh baby yeah

It is disappointing because Yamaha decided the T7 should cost way more than a  850 gs and AT....
And then it is said that yamaha have done a great job in keeping the price down here.
The dealers are drinking coffee and enjoying the chirps.
They aint sipping on Ricoffy.... :pot:

Let me ..... WOOHAA!  :lol8:
No Dan, the world over the T7 was introduced as a bare-bones midsized adventure, without fancy gimmicks but at a really fair price - and, the latter bit is always in comparison to whatever else is on the market!
Therefore, we were taught, by Yahama nogals, that this bike is worth less than a KTM - and for clarity I'll add "790 R" which you forgot to type.
We thus are complaining that the T7 in SA is ludicrously expensively priced - which is correct, you can argue until you're blue in the face about this  ;)

Nothing wrong with it in any other sense, this is no doubt a fine bike.... except for the price!

Gents, there is no direct comparison to the T7.

The person wanting a T7, does not want a 850 GS or AT, and vice versa.

The dealer rep in Nelspruit mentioned that he personally would have preferred a list price of R 195k.

Not a comparison, but only a confirmation of were bike pricing has gone, the Husky 701 LR costs R 185k currently!

A suggestion, go ride the T7 before commenting here.

If you are brand loyal, you will gladly pay the 200k and even have a great bike ....
If you are objective, it will be difficult, and this is not to say the T7 is a bad bike at all!!
