It has probably been answered a few times in 88 pages, but what is the expected price to be?
1978. It's 6am, mid winter...two up on a XL 185S ... off to my first casino ever with all of R40 and we've got a full tank of fuel, so enough to get there we reckon.... that's determination...

Old bike: '82 Eddie Lawson Replica Replica.
Other bike: '05 Honda Varadero 1000
New bike: '16 Honda Africa Twin.

No one knows, and Yamaha is too scared to guess the exchange rate at time of launch.

A tad under $17,000 here with road tax and insurance for a year, a full tank of gas and NO CENTER STAND. Dickheads!

If you compare the US price difference between the XT1200ZE ($16299) and the T7 ($9999) the T7 works out at 61% of the ZE.
At today's price of the ZE (R249 950 :eek7: ) the T7 should then come in at around the R152k mark.
Unfortunately we all know that's not going to be the case.

I don't know it might be.  South Africa has extremely good bike prices compared to the rest of the world.  I believe it's because we don't have any local bike manufacturers so very little added taxes etc.

I hope this is the case, had a long chat with a dealer principal over the weekend.
Apparently Yamaha SA have paced an order for 100 bikes, but he recons we will be lucky if it lands for under 190k.

The other way to look at it is that the T7 is about 15% more expensive than the Tracer 700 in the UK.
A Tracer 700 in SA is R144 950 now which should place the T7 at R167k.
I think at R175k it would still be reasonable.

If that were the case last year when the Tracer was 127k it would've made for fantastic value.

Now the Tracer is 145k and it's not even the new model yet.

And fanboys, don't take that on your blue balls again, I say that because a Tracer is one of my favourite bikes and I am disappointed that it's now gotten "expensive"

Yeah I don't see Chris Birch himself managing that one.    Respect where it's due.
