I see the 790 S and R goes for $21195 and $22695 respectively. This means very good pricing for the T7 !

Extremely good looking bike but the tank sits high, could be the reason the tank capacity is not that big. Still buy this over a 790 any day  8)

Though I must agree, that T7 has been around the world a few times, always in that crate. :patch:

Yamaha should bring out the T7 with the Niken GT front end.

I will be confident in saying that the time it took to develop the T7 it will have zero issues

That was a joke. I havenít had issues with the 790. And anyway, given the KTM fun factor, a few issues just help to keep the playing field balanced. You canít win at everything. The other brands wonít sell units

You are right, Yami missed the boat on this one, bike should have been released 6-12 months before the cone, another issue I have with the T7  is from what I can see the subframe is is welded to the main frame,,, bad choice for an adventure bike
