Buy the:

T7 if you do not mind paying a premium for a bike with less stuff that might break (Like traction control etc.). Do not like tubeless wheels. Want premium reliability. Want to spend another couple thousand to improve the suspension. Are happy with cheaper finishing touches at a premium price.

790 if you enjoy going fast off road. Enjoy electronics and a bike with alot of power. (Possibly too much as it requires electronics to be tamed for the average rider). Enjoy good suspension out of the box. Enjoy orange coffee mugs.

It really is a rabbit hole this one... :deal:

Very much dependent on you.

Not yet, but I have read my fair share of reviews on both  :) I will test ride both when I am buying a bike again.

A test ride will not change my opinion on the extravagant price of the T700 in SA though... :deal:

If you like to look back and admire your bike, T7 for sure  :deal: In your other thread you mentioned pillion, might be a deal breaker as well. Dont think either is ideal for that.
