Just read an interesting take on the T7 vs 790 saga.

Theory holds that Yamaha made much about the coming T7 while still sorting it properly, to force KTM to unleash a 790 not quite sorted.

Now, the real facts about both bikes seem to hold up that story, as the 790's are having numerous problems, oil leaks, shocks, etc.

For the short-term thinkers that say the Yamaha buyers should include suspension upgrades into the purchase price, remember that 790 owners/dealers should do the same for premature failure.
Watter ander conspiracy theories volg jy na?

Die “suspension failure” waarvan jy praat is ‘ n seel wat lek op shock, definitief nie op alle bikes nie en meeste gevalle in eerste paar duisend km. zero koste vir eienaar. Word onder warranty gedek.

Grootste probleem met my ktm is die swak diens by local handelaar
[/quote

Twee punte hieroor; 1. daai shock, alhoewel zero koste vir eienaar wanneer onder waarborg, is wel koste vir iemand. Koste wat tog uiteindelik iewers moet ingewerk word.

2. Waarmee vervang hulle daai shock, n goeie Ohlins, of weer dieselfde Wuhan wandaad? As dit dieselfde shock is, skuif hulle die probleem net n ent in die bike se pad af.

En die swak diens by handelaar is nie heeltemal ktm se skuld nie, die reggemaakte bike haal partykeer nie eers die huis voor die volgende gremlin hom vat. :pot: :pot:

Just one gripe with the T7, it's fuel range of nearly 300km is quite a bit less than previous Tenere models

Pretty sure someone local will do an auxiliary tank for it. Got he Rockfox one on my Africa Twin so now it has same range as my KLR
Watching this thread closely as this T7 could be replacement for both of the above.
The height bothers me a bit though. Even the current 660 Tenere is high for me.
Where are my shorts??
