Don't get me wrong. I like the T7 very much. I would love to own one without question and I think Yamaha a great brand. It is just very difficult to support a brand that are blatantly trying to take the general public for fools. To use Danie's analogy, they are trying to sell Toyota's at Mercedes Benz prices. Nothing wrong with a Toyota, dependable and reliable and does most things well, but it is no Mercedes and at Mercedes prices, not worth the purchase.

Dalk so. Gelukkig het hulle versuim om gekke van hul kliente te probeer maak.

And price now Up on Linex

https://linexyamaha.co.za/tenere-700/

Had a good laugh here.
some Yamaha ambassador dude was very feisty and adamant on vleisbook that the T7 costs less and that the R200k price is only doing the rounds cause it includes a lot of extras.

Holy crap!
See how that bike dip around 6:23 ish leaving the shop. And that guy is not the heaviest rider.
And I assume these guys have set up the suspension?

uhm




in die draad weet ek nie meer wie is stadig, wie vat gat, of wie is net met Yamaha oor die kop geslaan nie


okay, teen die tyd weet ek nou al 2SD vat net blatant gat, ander moet net ophou val daarvoor...maar die ander manne is minder 'obvious'

I can't relate to the Toyota/Mercedes Benz analogy, because that's about motor cars which compare to motorbikes like pumpkins compare to coffee mugs. And the cheapest motor car is every bit as good as the most expensive one because they both serve exactly the same purpose.  :3some:

Cars are all exactly the same, but every bike is different. The T7 looks like it would put a tick, maybe a slightly bigger or smaller tick, against all of my boxes. That's if I had R200k to spend.

But all this talk about the suspension. Seems to hinge on how it would bottom out over a jump. But what if you don't jump? Except very rarely and never deliberately?  :pot: :peepwall:

Jy kan nie ernstig wees nie???  n Poging deur die skelm Duitsers [Dieselgate tjommies] om n vermomde Nissan vir BAIE duurder aan "stupid" Merc kopers af te smeer, is nie gekke van daardie kopers maak nie??

Dit was alombekend dat  dit 'n vermomde Navara gaan wees jare voor hy vrygestel is. Net soos die nuwe Toyota Supra 'n vermomde BMW Z3 is. As die vervaardigers hul kopers nog steeds vir die gek kan hou na jare se publieke inligting, dan kan ek glo Yamaha en Bidvest dra jou goedkeuring weg vir die belaglike pryse van hul motorfietse.

Ek persoonlik sal ek nooit Toyota koopers gekke noem nie...

Biter min Merc kopers is ingeligte motor-kenners. Baie eienaars was baie ontstoke oor die slap riem, en die bakkie is amper dadelik laat vaar.

Amper soos n 790......

Pffftt! Nee wat, daai Merc ouens moet by Yamaha SA kom kers opsteek.
Vat `n 135k roadbike, detune die enjin, en verkoop hom vir `n back to basics adv bike  wat se sagte suspension met gemoedsrus uit gebottom kan word, teen `n skamele R200k.
Nou dus mos hoe `n man moet besigheid doen.

Back to basics is beter as KTM se back to workshop. Net daar le die ding.

Jy kry minder op die XTZ as met die KTM, maar eintlik kry jy heelwat meer op die Yamaha.  Dis iets wat al hoe minder mense verstaan in n lewe van alles nou en dadelik.

Nee, maar ten minste een van hulle het al n gebreekte KTM 790 mee gesukkel. Regstelling, ek glo die ander een het ook al met n gebreekte KTM gesukkel. :biggrin:
