Ja nee, my 701 lyk nou nog meer aantreklik as ooit tevore.
Lyk my Yamaha gebruik ook hulle Motogp tegnologie in die nuwe bike, want die een het ook maar `n skraal kans om op n podium te eindig.
Ek gaan nou eers wegkruip, 2SD gaan my (soos ander Stellenbosch trawante) kom kap met `n byl...

Wonder if it will release in another colour scheme as well. The Z had about 3 schemes I think when sold to the public.

Somehow this whole T7 "launch" / "revealing" whatever hoopla just seems like a non-event. Wake me up when something real happens...   :sleepy2:

How difficult is it for Yamaha to build a 690 clone put KYB SSS suspension on their and slap a 25L tank on ala 1984 XT600 Tenere and keep weight to 160 kg. Yes I know euro this and that but if KTM can get a single compliant surely the Japanese can too. If KTM admitted they kept going with the 690 as plenty of people still want a single. You can build a twin 700 as a Super Tenere or whatever for those who want it but for goodness sake give us a light single.

I actually still like the bike. It is what it is, and I am sure that it will sell well. As for unrealistic expectations from some. Sorry, but a couple of guys at the southern end of Africa can't expect to trump a corporation.

If Yamaha can put all the effort into building THIS, then what is their problem? Why does the T7 fail to meet expectations, and will also only be delivered in 2 years' time? - I know it's not in the same class, but this bike with a T7 motor, converted to a consumer class machine? Why not? Possible? No? Yes?

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.

Not waiting another 2 years for this kind of crap hype. Fuck them. There are other scalps that need cutting - and other more available options.
