Imagine the launch of the T7, and it was launched at the same price of the 790.
The reviews of the T7 would be totally different, and the T7 "bang for buck"  reasoning would be wasted.
And Yamaha would not have gone through the whole exercise of having to set up a 2nd production facility....
The fact is, that Japanese adv biking is leaving us at the same exact point where the average Japanese car manufacturers left is in the early 1990`s,  where the performance machine have disappeared altogether.
And now the bland, but reliable adv biking thing are  being sold by the Japs, While one European are doing the exciting adv bike stuff. Just like the Jap car scenario.
Sad but true. Yes, Toyota can get Ken Block to come drift a Corolla, but it will not make me go out and get one.
The T7 will have a market here too. As long as it is cheap, compared to......
Lets see...
Good looking Corolla that has more tricks up it’s sleeve than a supercar sounds like a brilliant idea to me  :deal:

Yes I know, but then, you are not not the Corolla buyer are you,
The Etios takes your fancy. 
Which is why you are drawn to the T7. :pot:

It appears that the unicorn has cast a kakpraat spell on many, judging by the handbag slinging in the past few posts!  :laughing4:

The fact remains that if the T7 is more than R 140k, very few will or be able to buy it. Klaar!

Mense ry nou nog Volksiebusse te danke aan David Kramer..... ek hoop nie jy hedge al jou bets op poePol se performance op die T7 nie.......

Party ouens ry nou nog HP2's, maar ek kan nie dink te danke waaraan dit kan wees nie.......

Antwoord is voor die hand liggend....

Die HP2 is ligter, lewer meer krag en het beter suspensie  as die T7......... al is dit 16 jaar 14 jaar ouer as die onverkrygbare Corolla van die adv biking węreld

En dan is daar natuurlik die feit dat dit seker die mooiste bike is wat ooit gemaak is.....

Laat Pol maar eers die HP2 deur die Yammie-toets vat.........

Vanwege die feit dat jy uit vrye keuse 'n 790 ry, is jou opinie oor wat mooi en lelik is niks werd.

No, I'm serious. There is no finer suspension if you don't ride too hard or fast.
