"Better than anything out there but the 790"

That is high praise for a bike that is priced 25% below the 790

I also think that I am starting to agree with many of the reviewers suggestion that the 790 and the T7 are ultimately fighting in different classes. For most of the Joe's out there they will be in the same class as an "end game" - buying a capable middle weight Adventure bike - but I do agree that the one is pointing harder at Adventure and the other harder at Rally Raid.

The tank will be a major issue to me, needs a dent in the front as I'm sure I will have a hardon every time I ride it.

Different people will take different things out of that which to me makes it an excellent review

Yes, excellent review. Probably the closest one can come to an idea of whether it is the bike for you, without giving it a thrashing yourself.

Yip, and also giving the impression that what works for one, might not work for the other. Doesnt make it bad/worse etc.

So far I am quite impressed with the reviews. It does seem like a very well thought out allrounder

I think they have aimed at a totally different market than the 790

Seems to me like  the KTM790 vs T7 debate is the same as the 690 vs XT 660  one is a finely tuned high performance beast  the other is a super reliable all rounder that realistically can do all the same stuff but with a bit less grin

I fail to see a reason why one should compare the 2 other than being in the market for a midrange DS adventure bike.
Both seems like decent bikes, I prefer the T7 because of that engine and a bit more simplicity.....almost a tad oldschool. The Katoom is modern, and also more expensive.
Thinking of the S10 here; definitely a bike that deserved better sales success in SA. It seems to be one of the most reliable heavy weights out there. The T7 will get that sales success though, I have no doubt

Sure, except that the T7 and 790 is much closer to each other than the 690 and XTZ was or is.

Yeah seems like Yamaha is closing the gap a bit on the performance stats and at a significantly lower price too I cant wait for it to be available here seems just the ticket for cederburg type missions I just hope that time proves it will have the legendary tenere reliability although it seems the designers went for robust instead of shitloads of electric farkles which suites me down to the ground
