Will still be interesting to see how the SA price is going to compare

We will soon find out as soon as Yamaha launch the T7 in South Africa in 2021 :spitcoffee:

I believe the crates are on back order.  :peepwall:

Are you trying to tell us that the crate manufacturer is even slower than Yamaha?? :eek7: :eek7:

Offroadrider you just described my GSA but forgot to mention the heated grips . I think I will have a beer and try decide which is better . 790  or 700 .  Ok the 790 is better because it's here so until it arrives 790 is king .

By the time the Yamaha gets here BMW will have a bike that goes for an adventure ride on it own. :3some:
Bikes : 2003 KTM 950 adventure S, 2018 KTM 690 Enduro R , BigBoy Revival 150 for the dorp.

Sun, Wind and Sail and for those colder days, My Bike.
Live for today, because yesterday has gone and tomorrow may never come.

KTM is way more expensive. Teneremotor is tried and tested in a number of different models.

Absolute power is not always an advantage.

I dont dispute that. I just think it strange to focus all the effort on price, its like comparing a GWM double cab to a Toyota double cab, I bought one because it was cheaper than the toyota, Now I dont have any more friends......
Bliksem comparing a Yamaha to a GWM, no that was uncalled for  :o

Well it looks like the new owners of the Yamaha T700 are quite happy with their bikes.

I have to answer this in Afrikaans. Tolla van der merwe vertel die grap van die ou man en sy vrou wat op die strand sit, n die ou man kyk na n sexy jong bikini-pop wat verby loop en sy vra hom;

"Wat kyk jy so?"

Hy se;  "ai ou vrou, dis darem maar die fyn houtjies wat die vuur aansteek"

Sy antwoord hom; "ja, maar dis die dik houte wat die kos gaar kry"

The same here, the KTM has some things over this Tenere700, but the Yamaha, once again, will be the practical champion of the people.

Perhaps you should do research about how many Yamaha's has done long adventure trips compared to KTM's. ;) :imaposer:

I think the biggest problem is people are comparing these bikes to each other, the 690 is in a class of it's own single cylinder big bore, the T700 is in a class of it's own 700cc  and the 790 is in a class with the GS and Triumph 800cc,  so really not sure why all these cone riders are trying to compare champagne with oranges, two totally different bikes, one for Sandton and one for the rest of the world.

Comparing it to other models in more or less the same market segment, gives value to what this bike has to offer (or not)
Assuming this bike is brilliant because it has a Yamaha badge, or it is a niche bike......oh boy, another 10/10 bike like the gs310....

No point in having a forum if we can't compare mis-matched bikes.

I've never thought of a Yamaha being a Sandton bike, but there you go, I've learnt something new today.  :thumleft:

What a lekker forum.

with a nice face though. perfect T7 summary.


so why do we compare the T7 to 790R on price if the standard 790 will already wipe it on and offroad and on range as well as comfort....
at least its going to be reliable...

Come on now, no need for sour grapes because you don't live in Sandton: you may buy a Yamaha as well, I'm sure we all will look the other way!
Mind, I just hope you'll have a few speedbumps close by to wheelie over eh?  :P
