Probably should not be in thumpers of course, but thought some would want to see
Take my money
watching.... always watching
From the link:
Yamaha saying via their press release, “Many existing mid-size adventure models are perceived as being too road oriented and too sophisticated, and are unsuited to real off road riding. The adventure world (excepting the USA) needs a new kind of motorcycle that can offer the genuine long distance versatility and pure durability of the original Ténéré, combined with contemporary design plus cutting edge engine and chassis technology.”
My parenthetic inclusion.
Pass the drool cup.
make mine a high spec kyb suspension please!
As much as we all covet this thing of beauty, it won't show up on our shores in anything looking or performing like that. The anti off-road crowd is far too powerful to allow this. And of course, once the EPA and Carb compliant agencies are through, this will be a scooter with knobby tires.....hey wait, the other Japanese company is already doing that. See, I told you.
Damn...I bet they'll build that mofo & sell it next year.
That motor and a 21" front wheel could make for a 400lb real dualsport with some slabbing power and legs...in an affordable price range.
Finally maybe a bike I can consildate 3 bikes for 1. Come on Yamaha make it a 2017 release.
This would be an excellent addition my S10! +1 on bringing this bad boy to the states soon.
Take a look at this thread:
There is lots if discussion ongoing there. And also some Information.
I can't wait to get off my orange POS for a high quality tuning fork bike! Hell yes! I'm watching this with great interest Yamaha!
Very cool! Please don't compromise on this bike and give us more horsePOWER!!!
There was also three other concepts at the EICMA that might get some of us to move away from the Thumpers forum. The Honda Africa Twin Sports Concept, the new KTM LC8c 790 cc engine and the Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled.
PS. I removed the pictures from this post because Honda Europe doesn't want anyone to promote their products! They prevent hotlinking by displaying just the logo intead of the intended picture. Strange form of denying a free advertisement.
Find it funny; mostly positive response to this beast here in the Thumpers forum, yet still way too much whine and "but it's too tall" but, but, but over in the Beasts forum. Me, I love it. Like I said over in the other thread, don't dumb it down, add signals and mirrors, bring it to Canada and I'll have cash waiting. Me thinks it would make an excellent addition to the 501 and Hawk in the garage.
If make I buy
Damn... now I have to wait until 2018 for my dream bike???? I was hoping to buy this coming year... Yamaha, this is going to be huge!!!! Pull your fingers out and bring this in ASAP to the USA!!!!!!!!!!
I was looking at the yahama web sites. uk has the t7 but usa and oz dont. we will get all worked up and it wont come here. stupied epa or some other dum ass group will see to that. just like the tenere 660 we never got here.
