    I sat on a Tenere 700!


    Canada has been taking a few of the T7s around to different dealers so folks could sit on them and get in a preorder ONLY IN CANADA (boo). So I packed my stuff and made the 1.5 hour drive up to Montreal so I could go sit on it for myself. The particular bike I sat on had a few factory Yamaha accessories which included bar risers, solo seat, rear rack, top box, bigger skid plate, chain guard, sprocket shark fin, and Center stand.

    Overall I'm impressed, I can't wait to get one for myself. Especially since Yamaha USA just announced the $9,999 MSRP.

    Granted I am more of a honda reliability kind of guy, but you can find couple year old ATs for about 8k these days. I'd probably take one of those over this.

    I do like this, so maybe in a few years well find these for cheap too. Kind of like the super tens that they can't sell.

    I wouldn’t mind sitting on the new Tracer 700
    https://www.asphaltandrubber.com/bik...ha-tracer-700/

    It’s like an updated more svelte version of the FZ6 I owned for 6 years.

    Re: I sat on a Tenere 700!

    I'm digging that white and red one. I have ridden the Duke 790 and found the engine to be more a rev monster than that heavier flywheel feel of a big single. I'm not sure if the 790ADV-R has that same manic delivery. I hear the T7 is much more of a predictable power delivery that makes flat tracking slides a heck of a lot easier to do with just your right hand. That's the type of bike I prefer over the KTM's traction control dialed down Rally mode.

    I may have to buy both and decide which I prefer.

    There’s nothing manic about the 790’s power curve.
    It doesn’t even wake up the same way the previous lc8 did at that magic rpm. It does a little, but Not in the same way at all.

    Maybe I made the mistake of riding my 110ci Lowrider over before jumping on the demo Duke 790. It felt down on torque. Chip did you buy a 790R?

    Sho nuff.
    I’ve not ridden the duke though, to compare the difference in the two mills though.

    That's a pretty sharp contrast to what I see around here. I have only looked occasionally, but I never see them below $10k.
    Although now I'm remembering markbvt let his go for pretty reasonable money too, didn't he?

    MarkBTV let his AT go for about $8K after sitting on it for a long time.
