I've see a few of them here in Holland, but have not been able to stop one yet. The red and white one seems to be the firm favourite.

Not sure if I should ask this here or do a new topic with a poll (maybe a poll can be added here) but with all the comments about the T7 being late to our shores or that it's going to be silly expensive now due to the R/$ blah blah blah I got to thinking.
So my which category would you fall into?
a) Definitely going to buy even if I have to sell my soul
b) Super keen price dependent
c) Might have a look and possibly maybe take one for a test ride to say that I have and give reasons why my current bike is better
d) Not even vaguely interested

E) objectively consider it if its value for money and generates a smile

I am definitely going to take a closer look at one. Won't take it for a testride, I know what a motorcycle rides like. If I like it, I'll get one.

But I will keep the XT, and the 701. It;s the fastest 701 in Stellenbosch.

2SD: the only 701 in Stellenbosch? or the quickest 701 when 2SD is on top?

The quickest one, even quicker than the so-called "uprated" engines 2018-on. :biggrin:

The king of Stellenbosch, even quicker than my XT. O0

Watch Ross Branch earn his keep when this bike arrives, bet Yamaha SA will be using their newly signed ambassador to do the launch and marketing !
