who said the T7 failed to meet expectation? it has met mine, and I'm famous for having realistic expectations.  :peepwall: cant wait to ride this one, the class lies outside the 000.38897kg difference, its in how it handles the missing 2mm in ride height that has devastated our favorite key boards jockeys.  :deal: :imaposer:

It must be all the expectations from the people who watched the different 'World Raid' videos....

Stupids, how could they expect the end result to be like what was in those video, don't they know it's just marketing and hot and and not much more....

Um, ja well no fine.

Haha look I've got my very own troll! New heights. I wasn't actually referring to you personally but if you identify with the keyboard jockeys so be it...

When I said my expectations are met I did not actually mean everyone's was met. Just mine. If you got duped by marketing that's not my issue. I wanted a 660z with a twin motor. Hey Presto.

Glad you happy bud,  and you re right.  I was one in the crowd that shouted Mt07 motor in 660z frame!!

Always liked the look of the 660z and almost blindly committed in buying one.

They remain popular like a lot of Yamaha product but in the end when I got a chance to have a real close look I lost interest.

Yamaha sure have brilliant products but the hype and expectation they caused through their brilliant marketing did not catch on to all of us hardegat South Africans.

Good for you and the die-hard fans but if I have the need and cash to buy in this class KTM  can have my money on the R Thank you.

Tom, when Yamaha did their brilliant marketting, "hardegat" South Africans were not in their thoughts. :imaposer: :imaposer:

It's for the client that made the XR-V, etc top-sellers.

That KTM is something special agreed. At first I wasn't sold on the 660 but ended up with one regardless as it ticked all my boxes at that specific moment. It has given me many years of reliable service and has taken every challenge with ease and up until now i have not found a replacement that can match its versatility. I suspect the T07 has the same engineering pedigree and will punch above the stats too.

I really don't get that Yamaha want to release the T7 2021, what reasons do they have for this other than shooting themselves in the foot seeing the the 790 is released earlier? or do they bet on the 790 being a fail  :pot:

Looks more like a new WR than a XTZ for me,seat is not suitable for a pillion either,but,it look very nice.Only my opinion ::)

The pillion comment will have the keyboard jockeys having a moment. :sip:

Can we maybe mothball this thread, lock it away and resurrect it in late 2020 or when the T7 is finally released here in SA?

:biggrin: that is very clear considering how offended you get on behalf of everyone. so not serious at all, just easily offended.  :peepwall: back on point, you are not going to even look at a T7 because you feel that the marketing was too aggressive and misleading to what you were expecting?

do you think it is a kak bike or just not what you were expecting?

If my 690 was a 200kg adventure bike, sure. But itís not. At this point the only rugged thing on the T7 appears to be the instrument cluster

They did yes. And the non-rugged items you were referring to? 

Although I should take your word for it as a expert in non-rugged parts, having owned BMW's for ages....... :pot: :pot:

Yes, I have been the [almost] sole disciple of the light bike on here, now the forum wants to adventurise MX bikes.

And I got you on a proper bike too. Admit it.

I doubt you got me on my 640. Now that was a complete mid size DS bike. I still own a GS. Bigger heavier bikes have a place too. So not slating T7, Iíve mentioned several times what a good platform it is, just saying for what it pretends and what it actually competes with in the market, they either have to match on features or be much cheaper
