Xt-07

Would be cool if Yamaha built an ADV around the FZ-07 and priced it right about the same. I'd pull the trigger on a new bike purchase if they did.

A fella over on KLR650.net said his Yamaha dealer told him the XT-07 was going to be released in November. Although most dealers are clueless about the products they sell. I had 2 different dealers argue with me that the fZ-07 didn't exist & I was thinking about the FZ-09, this was a week or two AFTER the FZ-07 was officially released in the U.S.

I think it's only a question of time before we see an XT-07, weather November is true or not. Yamaha seems to be the ONLY Japanese manufacturer that has even a shred of true Samurai spirit! I don't think they will ignore the true mid-sized ADVbike EVERYONE has been screaming for ever since the 650 Versys (ADV in look only) came out. IMO Kawasaki has the most "American like" leadership of the big 4 & I mean that as an insult...... Even though I'm an American.

Three other threads on this possibility. Why start another one? Keep all the discussion in one place!

My search had come up empty. if the mods want to combine them that's their prerogative. just hope i get some kind of alert or it automatically suscribes me.

All you have to do is scan the titles of the first 3 or 4 pages of the Beasts thread index. I know that we are all trained to "right now" responses, but it only takes a minute or two, and you usually see other threads of interest.

That said, the site search sucks. Try google searching of the site:
Google search box, "subject"/site=advrider.com/forums

And if you use an ad blocker to get rid of all the threads that don't interest you, it becomes a lot more obvious when new things pop up.

The first page in Beasts for me has only four threads visible (~10% of all threads on that page), the rest are just empty titles. After getting rid of all the fuss about Super Teneres, Tigers, NCs, and V-Stroms, there isn't much left anyways ... and that at least is partly interesting

i was at work. i didn't have time between the boss' rounds to scan 3 or 4 pages of threads. sheesh


and i know about the google method. i couldn't remember the "Z" in the tenere's model designation. so, searching without it wasn't helping.

Or a FJ-09 based on the FZ09!
