HANDS DOWN the BEST looking bike BMW has ever produced... BAR NONE.... :thumleft: :drif:

I agree. Reminds me almost of WW2 dispatcher bikes. If I had the money I would be sorely tempted. Gonna be 19k here which is a lotta loot

That's two T7's. :eek7:

If I had a larger shed I would have a T7 too. Oh an extra cash

If I had the cash I’d put my deposit down already.

It is at least a properly executed "retro" style, it is a pity the original was so butt ugly. :biggrin:

The only thing I would change is the 1800cc badge.

If I had the money I'd also rush to put down my deposit.  :deal:




..........on a Triumph Thruxton, or 1200XE !  :biggrin:


..........or both..........


Edit :-     No deposit, I'd rush to put down my cash. I don't go in for credit.

Triumph is having some SERIOUS specials at the moment.  1200 Scrambler @R175K and Thruxton R at R155k I think.

Just a pity their website is so unprofessional. Hope they dont run the business like they run their website. No updates since 2019.

Very reasonable pricing!

Then perhaps a small reminder for those already tipping on the fence is in order:
Those bikes in the country now (ie stock!) and on special now will be extraordinarily cheap compared to those imported after this Lockdown, simply due to the ~40% weaker exchange rate we have had!

So, if you want one better want get now!

Which adds up to...lemmesee....R330k.  So I can afford both as alternative to the R18!   :blob1: :blob10: :blob3: :blob5: :blob6: :blob7:


OH, but of course, hang on........that was just in theory.  :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'(

They do most of their marketing on Social Media where it’s more effective  ;)

Specials pricing is here. Limited stock, only valid in April.

We are so used to BMW calling something a "GS650", when it is a 800cc. :imaposer:
