Had a look at the Tiger 900 now at Triumph.   Very good looking and sounds more like an ADV bike now, compared to the 800 which sounds oike a blender :biggrin:  I like it.


Another bike that beat the T7 to actually existing.

What is the price of the Triumph ?

R215k last I checked.
THat is R5k more than current price for 790.
but it will need more crash protection, it will probably need more suspension work as well and have a lot less aftermarket support.
oh and it has the 17 inch rear
I really like it...but does not seem viable for me when looking at price
I have given myself a month before buying something, at this stage probably 790.

Yeh I Agree.  It looks a lot tougher than the current Tiger 800 though.  And lots of toys.

Spoke to owner of a Yamaha shop on Saturday, he estimates T7 price to be R220k. :imaposer:

Laughed my but off, R10k more than a 790R, that is stupid to say the least.

All revues I watched on Youtube mentioned the very cheap price compared to 790, F850 etc. making it "better" than the compitition.

Perhaps there could be good business in importing 2nd hand T7s from Europe, Australia and elsewhere?

Dealer here also told me that we will be lucky if it comes in below R190k.

if it sells for 150 or 160 they will sell boat loads, 180 and up they will sell minimal

I was hoping that Yamaha could land it here for around R180 000 max.

But......what makes it "better" than the competition, from what I picked up on the numerous videos, is the balance of the machine, the power delivery off-road, and that jewel of a CP2 engine.

All this at a great discount to the competition.

What we can accept is that biking in SA is dead.

Well, the GS1250's sell?  :peepwall:

Fans of the Yamaha brand knows well how terrible Bidvest was for Yamaha pricing, and if this bike, which comes in cheaper than the competition all over the world, is priced too high in SA,

it will only be because of Bidvest.

Sukkel weer vandag..........
Wat ek wou se, Chris.

Hy like van bike werk, dus sal die 790 hom pas

ja ja

Ek kom gister vroeg by die huis na werk….kyk na die leeg garage....het niks om te doen, niks om reg te maak…. wat n waste. :patch:

What makes the power delivery unique?  I also noticed that but dont understand. 
What stood out for me, or rather, suddenly clarified a lot, was the observation of Fortnine that the front sprocket sits so high and forces the rear down when applying power down. THat was a great illustration and I think the reason some choose the T7 above the 790. The specs just did not agree with a lot of reviews, but that changes things

Makes no sense to me. The higher the front sprocket the more the bike will tend to squat under accelaration in my opinion . Which should effect front rake and trail making for a more stable less twitchy bike on acceleration.  :patch:  Maybe   :lol8:
