Stranded T7 rider on the beach represents the average T7 owner
Fit and tanned? Yes you are right not like the average KTM rider with a boep and a KTM sticker on his Hilux that he uses to get his broken bike home. Oh and the T7 rider has  friends also a thing KTM riders lack

you lost credibility at the friends comment

the 3 T7 owners knowing each other doesnt count as a friend group.
Remember KTM dudes need to klap together to share trailers and bakkies = lots of friends....

Hey how do you know I only have 3 friends? Been Facebook stalking me?

Yamaha Ténéré 700 Raid Prototype unveiled
https://www.motorcyclenews.com/news/new-bikes/yamaha-tenere-700-raid-prototype/

Arguably the biggest gains have come in the suspension department, with both front and rear stock items replaced with units from Kayaba. Not only do these bring increased adjustability they also bring 60mm extra suspension travel at either end, bumping it up to 270mm front and 260mm rear. The forks and shock now sit in custom made yokes and linkage respectively.

A Rekluse clutch is a game-changer on any big bike being taking through small places.

How much will that be
similar specs to 890 rally, so extrapolating their current markup it should come in at R420k?

This is a trick question.  :lol8:

........and it's exactly that 'sound effect' that's led to pages of argument. Why I'd buy a T7 in a minute if I could afford one is because I don't do KADWAH and nor I suspect do most riders.  :peepwall:

Problem is when you get an unplanned kadwa that gets you into the back of a ambulance. And it has happened.
I also drive without a seatbelt. but at least i`m in a cage then.
