Just seen this on Twitter - looks like our bike has been usurped as Big Yam’s XT tribute....:|
I saw a T7 in the flesh (metal) at the bike show a few weeks ago. Didn’t have a close look, got to admit (not my thing really), but I thought it might be here a little sooner? They’ve teased it for years, now....I really like the paint scheme! I got a chance to briefly ride a FZ7 while my FZ9 was in for tires and the 700 twin is a great little engine.
In fact, I almost wished I'd gotten it instead of the triple except the twin wasn't out yet.
I wish Yamaha would make another 500cc or bigger dual sport bike again.
I'm too short to ride a XL650R Honda (with it's dinosaur of an engine) and am no longer on speaking terms with Suzuki.
Kawasaki had the KLR650 until this, the final year. Already had one of those.
That leaves Yamaha and me longing for a T7. Word is it'll be a 2021 released in 2020. =(
